    I made a "very serious" mistake. In my rush to leave for home, I made a human oversight and blew by the screen to enter my lunch. 2 or so years ago my Sup gave me permission to account for my time using my watch-stopwatch and plugging in a 1 hour lunch time at end of day. No problems til now. Took 2wk vaca to Norway to visit family, they're 6 hours ahead of us. I came back to work 6 hours ahead in mind and body. 1st day back I didn't enter lunch, simple mistake on my part, but I told him the next morning I had done it. Well, he didn't fix timecard, AND I did it again that day!!! OUCH! Called in office and terminated. He also followed me that 2nd day and watched me take some of my time that wasn't logged into board, because it was in my stopwatch; just never got recorded. I've never been here before. No prior terminations, 21yrs service, 13yrs safe driving, 0 attendance/tardy issues, never bitch or complain and get the job done. Is this because it's a contract year and I'm being made an example of? Wife and kids are still in Norway!!! Can't wait to pick them up at the airport and give them the news!!!! Am I getting my job back? BTW my supervisor did a great job not supervising me. Insights? How long can I expect to be jobless?

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Why in the hell wouldn't you just enter your break when you take it?


    Here's what I'm guessing you do. Run your ass off and every single second you aren't delivering packages you start your stopwatch and consider it break? Lmao

    How is it stealing time when you worked for free on time you were supposed to be resting?

    I could see a dishonesty charge or not working as directed.

    But stealing time? You gave the company free labor.

    I’m starting to think there’s a troll with multiple accounts posting walls of text about him getting fired or disciplined for being an idiot.

    Did your supervisor give you the stop watch, why don’t you just enter your lunch?
    Even if I feel like splitting my lunch up I entered it when I take it.

    Also go back and edit that wall into paragraphs.

    21 years of service and he uses a stop watch to clock seconds he isn’t being useful to UPS to count as his lunch. They got him whipped like a dog already, probably did him a favor and put him out of misery.

    Did you miss this? Taking personal time and not recording it? Sorry but that's classic stealing time.

    If this is real I know you should not teach grammar/English since you clearly don't know about paragraphs.

    However I would bet dollars to donuts you're just trolling this site.

    I would be unfazed by this: Real or not. In some dimwit coastal corner of the country at a 30-driver center.

    You know someone, somewhere was stupid enough to do this. And management wad just salivating at the free termination.
