    That's right....

    The United States Postal Service.


    I was out cutting grass when a mail carrier pulled up to the neighbors.

    Being curious, I wandered over to ask him why he was working.

    He said 2 words. Amazon baby !

    His little mail truck was bricked out with amazon pkgs. (at noon)


    Let that sink in, for a minute.

    If you think UPS has no competition....

    Just say'n.

    Did you mean UPSF (UPS freight) ?

    Calling them feeder drivers.... is not something you say out loud.

    When the company can't move the loads, how are the pkgs going to reach destination ?

    We have Feeders drivers on the road right now, I hope they are getting double-time. I got an Amazon delivery yesterday. It was their driver and I wasn't charged an extra $5 "tip" like they added on before.

    This is the package that was mis-delivered. Someone sent me some Asswipes and three tubes of Fresh Balls lotion. Now my neighbor thinks I have sweaty balls!

    Rick Ross I'm into distribution!!

    1.5x plus your holiday pay, I turned down work today in feeders.

    I'm sure there is a sort somewhere working today as well. I know we are picking up loads at SDFAS today.

    I couldn't believe to see them working today. When I ordered something on Amazon that said guaranteed on Labor Day I thought it was a mistake.

    Who ever said, or thought we had no competition?

    I'm a NO vote, but I'm not ignorant to the way the business operates.

    I'm fully aware we all benefit when the company profits, but I won't be a rube and automatically rubber stamp this contract proposal just because the union and the company say so.

    It's one thing to work weekends; feeders have been running 24/7 for years. But there is no way we should sell the farm because some of the competition is running on a handful of holidays we don't.
