    What I really a janitor. I clean up the messes that IE and Operations Management make every day. The only frustrating part is that they are completely oblivious to those messes, so they always want to know why I am spending so much of their valuable time pushing a mop around.

    Yep. UPS drivers' paychecks are proof positive that stupidity can be VERY costly.

    I think you only scratched the service here, but I like your post to start with. On top of those jobs, we have to do our own job that includes too much to list here but we all know what they are.

    I was thinking about this exact thing today...misload meets, breaking trace to deliver that one address that our system JUST CANT GET RIGHT (you got it, NDA, two routes over, not in EDD...cheers!), resorting my entire load (at least the individual sections were on the right shelf, other than that, I think the 'chaos' theory applies here), etc. etc.

    It's like this (to some extent) every day.

    It's hard not to giggle when I'm questioned about the 'numbers'.

    What about mechanic? I couldn't tell you how many things I have had to fix on my package car while the mechanic at the center talked me through it on the cell phone.

    +1 I have replaced headlights, I have replaced flasher modules that went kaplooey, and one time I jury-rigged a quick fix to a faulty brake-light switch by taping three nickels and a popsicle stick to the top of the brake pedal arm. Macgyver aint got nothin' on me!

    We(the drivers) are the last line of defense for customer service. Yes, we fix other peoples screw ups daily when possible. If it takes a little more time and effort to get the package to it's be it. You can nag and nit pick all you want, bottom line, if it wasn't for the extra effort the drivers put in to make sure the job is done, we would all be out of work and not due to the current economy. IMO

    I don't mean to sound pompous. I try to understand the difficulties of the other jobs at UPS, there are many for each position. It just gets old to be percieved as spoiled, overpaid slackers by other co-workers or customers.
