    Up here in NorCal where the fire is. Air quality is terrible with ash falling from the skies. Going into work today I’m questioning if this is worth my health. Does UPS ever consider these insanely unhealthy conditions? I mean I know they can’t shut down but what if people refused to work in these conditions? (Masks are unavailable in every store and they are not being provided either)

    I always used to love the old “your last stop is your most important stop when you get home” drivel they used to spew in the PCM. Greatest thing about feeders. Never having to hear that bullsheet again.

    Shouldn’t you be out spying on 9.5 drivers?

    If they are unsafe air conditions and you cannot work, talk to your steward and contact the union hall directly.

    ^ That's usually the best way to get any answers on anything.

    Get yourself one of these and tie it around your face

    Color depends on what “hood” you happen to be in

    I think I’d wear something bright with flowers on it just so there is no mistaking. Lol.

    Had a big fire here in San Diego a while back. Drove the truck out and about 15 stops in I call and tell them I'm having trouble breathing and I'm coming in. They tried to fight me on it and all I said was fine then I need to report a injury I'm having trouble breathing and need to go to the doctor. Bet you can guess what happened next.

    Turns out more then 10 other drivers did the same thing in my center.

    Hopefully you're being sarcastic. There's literally millions of masks available at the moment. There's a new website called Amazon. Could always start there.

    Yes I was being sarcastic. What I was really trying to say is

    "I'm not buying a mask to do my job."

    If I have to buy a mask to do my job that means I shouldn't be out there.

    I will be sure to check out that new website though. I just found a site called E-bay last week. Check it out if you get a chance. ;)
