    as for your questions of why was Ed out at 8 PM on a friday noight... HE was running a misload, off area. Can you believe it. Absolutely Terriblr...Keep them in your prayers...
  2. I'm not one to usually come to the aid of UPS but this is a bit much.

    Do you know how many other drivers run misloads at that time virtually EVERYWHERE else in the country? Am I saying its right? no absolutely not, but suppose it happened at 4pm, is UPS at fault then? What happened is terrible but to blame UPS for it just doesn't register, thats like when you get hurt no matter what UPS blames you. Is it right? NO absolutely not, thats why they're called accidents. I know you can argue it wouldn't have happened if he wasn't in the area at the time, but thats like UPS saying an unavoidable accident was avoidable because you were on the clock too late in the day. I don't know if they do that (wouldn't surprise me) but still. It was an accident, a terrible one, but saying UPS killed him? Thats a bit much

    These kind of losses are always tough to deal with. My heart and prayers to the friends and family. Steward lets see if we can remember your friend and help his family and keep away from the distractions of trying to lay blame anywhere except where it belongs at that drunk drivers doorstep.

    This is out of line. I'm also Preload Sup/ Data OMS/ PAS Scrub/ PDS

    I was a driver beforehand. he could just as easily been killed at noon. A tragedy, yes. UPS's Fault? what about the loader that loaded it, or the spa person who put the wrong label on it?

    you act like UPS knowingly put that driver out knowing what would happen, cut that :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: out.

    Agreed. Misloads get delivered every day. That's the job.

    Hopefully the drunk driver will get some prison time.
  8. Actually, you're wrong, but thats besides the point. I delivered for 1.5 years (no its not a long time) but to say I don't know what I'm talking about without even knowing me is stupid. I've been with UPS for 3 years and yeah I have seen some accidents, one not too far from our building (accident with a shifter at that UPS facility, a man was killed) so don't tell me what I do and don't know because you have no idea

    I hope that drunk driver gets whats coming to him, but as others have said, as cold as it sounds, delivering misloads is part of the job, whether at 10am or 8pm.
