Another customer you want to strangle story

Discussion in 'UPS Union Issues' started by Ipopsheep, Sep 10, 2019.

  1. If a customer is friendly and considerate I will go out of my way for them.
    If a customer is inconsiderate or beesnatchy I will not.
    Its pretty simple.
    I generally find it's the "bigger" women in their 20's or 30's that treat you as a little delivery boy

    Friday I was driving down a narrow road with kids playing in the street. The parents were sitting in lawn chairs watching. I was going slow, making sure the kids got out of the way and everyone was safe. That, apparently, was not good enough for the mom (likely the offspring of two siblings), who started frantically waving her arm with the universal "slow down" gesture and started yelling at me. Then one of her slack-jawed spawn started blowing a whistle, also telling me to slow down.

    The street is not your personal playground, people. At least have the consideration to recognize when someone is clearly being extra cautious while your cross-eyed, imbecile kids take their time getting out of the way.

    Lol, we had one a driver wrote up "Smells like somethings burning". The mechanic signed off "OK to drive". The next day it burned to the ground on the highway!

    No dis to the mechanic, he didnt find anything.

    That's why they never sign "ok to drive" here.

    Man, I had to dig down deep to find the strength not to do that. Would have been just my luck that one of the little mouth-breathers would have run out in front of me as soon as I hit the accelerator.

    Had a long paved driveway with a Beware of Dog Sign at the end. I pull up with a little Amazon box. I cautiously look around and get about 10 feet from the truck when a German Shepherd materializes out of nowhere.

    I stop dead in my tracks and politely place the box at the end of the driveway. "REL" DOG under comments.

    I suddenly hear a voice calling out "are you going to just leave it there?" "yes ma'am. it's safer for both myself and your dog." "he won't bother you, he just barks and growls a lot." "I don't know him and he doesn't know me and I'm just trying to be safe."

    Women continues to yell something while gesticulating from her front porch as I drive off.

    He won't hurt me. Has a Beware of Dog sign. Owns a German Shepherd.
    Sometimes I wonder....

    I had a lady chase me down last peak to yell at me that, "how dumb are you, everything goes to the back door." Now, im an :censored2: there is no doubt about that, but if someone has a note on their door i will honor it unless its a safety hazard to go back there. She didnt have a note on her door, no diad prompt etc.. Before she was done telling me what an idiot i was for not just knowing that everything goes to the back, I texted her normal guy what was happening and to always deliver front door. He does to this day. he sends me pics.

    There are some notes that have the magic word "please" on it, in those cases I will usually deliver it where they want. But some people forget to use the magic word and have demanding notes on their door like "packages go to the back" "use the side door" etc.... For those people I deliver it front door every time and slap an info notice on it and write ups my choice.
