    What's not so funny is the vehicle has an attractive paint job, an attractive color scheme and logo that is safe and visible even in the dark, and is washed clean! Even the wheel rims are clean. No scratches, no dirty windshields, no missing marker lights or reflectors, no bent front bumper. FedEx must know some secret that UPS management doesn't.

    I wonder if the driver told his Helper to watch his step getting out of the truck..............

    Did he use three - point contact when exiting the vehicle? He DID lock the panel door.

    I wonder if his insurance paid for all the damage or if he had to pay some out of his own pocket.

    The secret is FedEx saves money by hiring people who do not know how to drive/park safely.
    The savings in accident costs over lower wages pays for their image.

    BINGO SD!!!!

    I am constantly amazed at the FedEx drivers I see around town and their driving habits. One driver in particularly that noses his truck into every delivery stop. Only a matter of time till he backs that thing out into traffic and crushes someone that is not paying attention to him.

    In most cases, FDX does not hire FDX Ground drivers. Most of these trucks, er, package cars, are contract trucks with either the owner driving them or hiring out an owner. It has not been unusual, up til recent legislation in some parts of the country, for an owner to have several "routes", hence, several trucks with several drivers that the owner, not FDX, hires.

    Does FDX care about who drives the truck? You make that call. Does UPS care about who drives the contract trucks you see around Christmas time? Again, a no-brainer.

    Excuse me. I didn't mean legislation in the first paragraph. I meant rulings.

    Driver to helper: "USE THE HAND RAIL"

    I bet this just ruined his day. Can you imagine if the driver managed to flip it on its side. It looks like it would wedge itself in...then that would really be funny.

    I would guess a good looking babe in a short skirt was trying to get out of her car along side of him while he was backing up. That's how I lost a billfold one time

    Thats almost as good as the P1000 that came up for auction last month. 78 miles. They only showed photos from the rear, which showed a clean nice new package car. Said the damage was front end, and that they would only sell it for scrap.

    Lemme see how that conversation went when calling the center to report that you totaled a brand new car on the first day out.

    While I can't speak for Ground, when I was at UPS our center was averaging about
    10-15 accidents a month(30 routes)

    At my "station" with Express, we have 10 routes, and haven't had a single incident
    in 8 months. I think alot can be said for stress levels, and work load..

    Of course I can't imagine how something like the picture above could happen.
    then again it is "Ground"
