    So, through some hearsay and speculation, I have heard that a new-ish driver in a local building was fired for stealing a bottle of water from the vending machine in the lunch room. I haven't been able to figure out if he had put his money in and got taken, or if he just wanted a free Fiji water. So he shook the machine and there's a camera that looks right at the machines, to catch people rocking them.

    This has GOT to be about the stupidest damn thing you could do to get yourself fired. I hope that water tasted like $75,000, cause that's what he threw away to enjoy a nice, fresh bottle

    bleedinbrown58 ahhh....the mouth breathers I hope that was the best tasting water he ever drank! I told a good friend of mine's gotten to the point if I walked into the building and saw a five dollar bill sitting on the floor...I'd step over it and keep walking. You never know who's watching.

    Yeah and UPS may have stepped over it to pick up a penny.

    Damn Fiji water in your vending machine? We have Pauls "almost Spring water" in our machines.Must be a Beverly Hills building!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We had a driver fired for "theft of services". He had "borrowed" a peel-off barcode label from the SRM book at one of his pickups to send a package back to the shipper. 99% of the time this would have gone unnoticed but this package was returned to the pickup as damaged. A few phone calls later and this guy is out of a job.

    I guess the driver really was "wet behind the ears"?

    The part timers generally beat the snot out of a particular candy machine on a daily cycle in my center. Nothing has happened to them. The machine in question has issues of not providing the product once paid for.

    I found a Sacagawea dollar under some rollers at work one night. I showed every boss the dollar. Just to make sure I was not stealing. It was asinine , but you always have to cover your back at ups. I still don't know what clown brings a generally useless coin to work.

    Some change machines give you dollar coins for a 5, 10, or 20 dollar bill. Better then all quarters.

    I'm glad there are no cameras in our break room. There was a certain kind of vending machine there that had a dispenser that if was a special way at a certain frequency if you will......would dispense it's contents without having to pay for it. And as many as you wanted. I would have been fired during rather early in my career.

    Every time I walk out of a truck when I'm pre loading I put my hands out like a casino dealer and flip them over.
