    I've been confused about some things I've read here lately. Such as people getting in trouble or fired for words that come out of their mouths.

    I never took UPS to require any level of professionalism. We have a couple full time sups that I have overheard on several occasions where every other word out of their mouths was cursing.

    As for a specific question, can you get in trouble for, say, telling a sup to f off?

    If so, where in the contract does this information reside?

    Yes you can.

    It is in Article 37.

    It depends. If you curse about something then usually no. If you curse at someone then possibly. It's a grey area especially when the people judging you curse themselves.

    Simple rule: Watch your :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2:ing mouth!

    As long as your not threatening them or insulting them your good to go... Pick your words wisely and there won't be any problems..

    I went off on my SUP this morning about the BS stops per car number that blows out cars and in the morning and then they throw the rest of the crap on whatever car it fits on. I told him that nobody has enough balls to do something about it and it F-ing BS. About 11:30 I got a message for a meet point with an Air drive. HE took 15 stops of the 201 I got sent out with. Then later in the day I get a call from mu SUP he says your where a little fired up this morning you calm down yet...

    My center manager complained that we don't have the volume to run more routes. I said we have no volume because of your stupid decisions. I ended up in the office for a moment. All is good.

    Don't yell unless you want to be yelled at.
    Dont swear unless you don't mind if you are sworn at.
    Dont insult unless you are willing to be insulted.

    I don't respect a guy who doesn't swear and I respect a manager who has a potty mouth. I've got one I am a truck driver and the managers who did there time and were truck drivers are going to swear. I respect it and I'll take it and give it back.

    all will be forgiven if you remember to give the sup a real sloppy kiss on the lips.

    One of my sups went to seminary school before working at UPS. Last peak I bumped into him on a particularly f-ed up day and in our discussion he launched into a 5 min rant full of f-bombs. After he got it off his chest he realized what he had done and apologized. I told him appology not accepted and that I was proud of him for being honest for a moment instead of dishing out another scoop of PC.

    I was hired by a center manager. Yes, a very small center. It was a while ago, too.

    I don't respect anyone whose every other word is a curse word.

    I don't respect a manager who has a potty mouth.

    If you don't have the ability to complete a simple sentence without cursing I have little respect for you.

    I am former military and some of the rants I have heard while at UPS would make a soldier blush.

    To the OP---yes, you can get in trouble for cursing at a sup.
