On a lot of fourms a poster with 6000 posts would have a contest and offer a prize to celebrate. How about it Tie
How many of those did he make on UPS time?
Hey if Tie has the party at UPSLIFERS I can go to, that would be fun!!!!!!!! I'l voluteer to come and help also.Not that he needs defense, I think if it was necessary to take the time we could find the post. But I believe he said something like Darling not all of us work during the day, there are many shifts at ups. Someone made a remark about him posting during the day, thinking that was when he worked. Management has lots of down time, but someone is suppose to be there all the time. I would be happy to have them spend time here. Better than the Emporers club, or somewhere
And yes he should host the party, in a centtral area of the US, and pay for the Canadians, Alaskans, and Hawaiians on here to come and write it off on his expense account. Or we could go to Mores house, or whats the other guy in Hawaii, UPSLIFER, yes that is the best idea, and More can cook. Ill show up a week early and help out!!!!
Have you (not necessarily you, DB) ever read Tie's personal quote in his profile? That is one of the things that I like the best about him. DB you, all but, said his quote.Ever think maybe he works all night? Unless I am mistaken, UPS does have management that works from 11-9AM or so.
Besides, I look at management posting here while on the job as a good thing. That means they are not going after the hourly under their supervision.
Or maybe, (and this is my personal opinion) Tie has trained his people to do the work they know best, and his job is to stay out of their way and let them do it. He is only there to take care of problems when they pop up.
Wow, thats a LOT of posts,but over the years he still makes sense.
A couple of times,he was tempted to leave this forum because some people see him as a threat.I,on the other hand, respect him for both having the guts to speak his mind,and his dedication to ups.
He takes the crap for everything bad ups does,and all the union guys are all over him like its his fault.He only works there like you and me .
that beatles song was about him...
Tie caru e day eva...nothings gonna change my world
There is an old management saying.... "Part time is full time and full time is all the time!".
Making statements like the above is tantamount to calling tie a thief as if he is stealing time from UPS. Or did I misinterpret that flame?
Do you ever come to work for free? Do you come in on your day off and take out an air run without being paid?
I am sure that tie has worked many Saturdays and maybe some Sundays taking care of some problem. He gets paid no more to do that. I will bet you will find very few weeks in his career where he worked less than 45 hours which is what his salary is based on.
I think is is very unfair to insinuate that tie does not give UPS 100%.
