    Hello everyone,

    I have been lurking around for quite some time and decided that I needed to get with the program and become a member of the Brown Cafe community.

    A little background:

    I have been employed at UPS for a year. I work on the sort aisle at a medium-sized hub in Texas. So far, I have experienced more good times than bad. I (for the most part) enjoy my job, my co-workers, and even my bosses...

    I have aspirations of becoming a package car driver. I have high expectations of making UPS my career in life...at least for a long time.

    For all you negative-types: Mock me if you will but I just might be one of the few that doesn't really have that much to complain about. No offense. Sure, the wages could be much better but I get a pretty nice workout, decent benefits, and the satisfaction of a good (half) day's work.

    Anyway, just wanted to say 'hi' and I'm sure I'll enjoy my stay here at the Cafe'.

    Welcome aboard. That's how I started 35 years ago myself.
    It's been a long, strange trip it's been (Grateful Dead song).
    Hope things work out for you.

    It's no fun for the negative types if you tell them to mock you...
    And if you have been at UPS for a year with not really much to complain about either you have read everyone else's complaints and vented vicariously through them or they already got your soul...lol..

    Just kidding :)
    Welcome! :happy2:

    They may break my body, but they can never take my soul!

    If they can profit from it, they'll do both.

    Welcome Sorter!

    Don't worry about the "negative-types". They are simply the louder minority.

    It is the UPS way to complain about your job, I think we all have done it. But if we really didn't like it, we'd quit, right?

    Keep posting!

    I honestly dont think I could have put it any better myself. I second all of your thoughts Sorter. How old are you if I may ask.
