    I think I am because I wear a brown uniform and drive a truck around that the company calls a "package car" I am just not sure if that is what I am.

    if your body is wracked with pain, if you dream about stupid OJS msgs, like folding in your mirror at every stop, and how to be safe, and how its a choice. If you need to eat tums on the way to work, If you need a tow truck to get to your front door, when you get home, if your knees and ankles, and hips suddenly dont work correctly after you have sat for 10 minutes, If you walk up to a friends house and yell UPS at the front door, or toot when you pull up, you are a ups driver.
    I f you extend your handshake and instead say sign here, if you do your errands according to loop, and dont like to turn left, you are a UPS driver.

    i cannot stand being told to send those messages out to the drivers

    that kind of bull:censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: should be done before leaving the barn (if at all)

    my personal favorite is the 'sauve qui peut' OJS message: "all drivers return to building immediately and sheet all remaining packages as missed (or emergency conditions)"

    If you've been fired and all your friends have been fired and you still work here.
    If you know that the best bottle to pee in is a Gatorade bottle.
    If you know the terminology (code words) like drop your load( sick) dump your load (his a curb or bump).

    Your are a package car driver when women hit on you all day. Young ladies and middle age women those married and single love to see you. Now keep in mind, I believe this happens to many men at UPS not just me.

    After a grueling day of this madness, I come home to a beautiful wife.

    You know you are a package car driver if

    1) you shoot non drivers dirty looks if they start backing up without tooting the horn twice.

    2) even on off time, when in presence of other delivery drivers , you watch their technique and evaluate.

    3) you always hold the door open for any worker using a hand truck cos you know how much it helps.

    Could your kids recite the 5 Seeing Habits when they were learning to drive?

    You might be a UPS Package Driver!

    You know you are a package car driver when every drawer in your house has a collection of brown UPS pens and used-up pads of delivery notices inside.

    If someone walks toward you with a pkg. you instinctively say: " I don' get that!"
