some of us have been told all our lives to Not Pay Attention when someone calls you a N.g.g.r

you can turn the other cheek but you only have two

besides management moving you out of your area of knowledge because of the slur, what does UPS do about these situations? Southwest. 6yrs with the company 4 yrs driving and been called a N close to 20times now.

I’m sorry for the idiots of my race calling you that. It’s totally not acceptable.

Don't want you to take this as I am questioning your authenticity or anything, but what's the scenario? In my day to day driving I find very few situations where people insult me personally, much less go the racial route? Is it some backwater white trash area or something weird? Like I said, not calling you a liar, more just curious about these awful people.

if I knew the reasons, I probably wouldn't even ask

Is this your route?
Speak to your center manager and tell him that you will not deliver to this person. That they will have to pick up their packages at the building. Management can put their address on permanent will call.

We have done that here to problem customers. They learn real quick disrespect of drivers will not be tolerated.

I'm sorry you feel that way. With this being a text based online forum full of random folks, there's no way to prove I'm not some cracker assed cracker, so I won't bother. That being said, if one of my black co-workers were telling me that someone on route called them the n word my first response would be "wtf! How? Why?". Just being dumbfounded to the scenario that people would treat their UPS driver so poorly. Not ever questioning their honesty.

I’m pretty sure he didn’t mean it that way. It’s just that I’m sure most people don’t hear people throwing words around like that all the time so he’s probably just surprised, as would I be.

Ignorant people like to throw tantrums when they don’t get their way. Won’t pick up their unpackaged 120lb RS1 call tag? “Lazy ****** wouldn’t pick up my box.”

Being called a slur 20+ times by different people, though...? I feel like there’s definitely more to the story.

I've been called slurs too, racists come in all colors. I just consider them ignorant and I ignore them. They only make fools out of themselves is the way I look at it.

Companies are required to provide a workplace free from harassment, and that includes from customers. You should not have to be moved from your route to avoid harassment. You should definitely be able to report which customers are harassing you and have all their packages held for pick-up.

I was called a N-gg-r many times back when I used to get so dirty from the dusty roads that I looked the part. What ever happened to the old "sticks and stones " way of thinking? Damn you people are pusillanimous now days

Are you saying you were called the n word from a customer you were delivering to? If that's the case I would downright refused every package to that person . Explain to management that you were threatened and clerk work all their deliveries. You dont take that :censored2: from anyone .
