    Okay so I was walking my dog this morning before work and had my uniform on and had an altercation with a neighbor about dog :censored2: in his yard. He claimed my dog :censored2: in his yard and he saw him do it but he was lying because my dog just went peepee lol! Words were exchanged and I later apologized to him for past poops in his yard. Could he call in on me and try to get me fired over this altercation?

    I wouldn’t worry about it. If a nurse, firefighter, cop, power company worker etc were walking their dog and got into an argument in uniform, it’d be stupid for the neighbor to call it into their places of work over it. UPS would be no different. Has nothing to do with what you do.

    Actually, he could get a warning letter, which is the start of progressive discipline. A while back, we had a center manager that had a jag for anyone that came in or left in browns. He handed out warning letters. They stuck until he left. New center manager says go straight home or come straight to work and it will not be a problem, anything else will be a problem.

    One can get a warning letter for anything. Progressive discipline for walking your dog in uniform before work? Nah.
