    a convo i had with my sup this morning, verbatim.

    part time sup: "Christian, do you know what handling a package is?"

    me: " is this a trick question?"

    part time sup: "no, do you not know?"

    me: "ok, package handling is the act of moving a package by hand, as in i am a package handler."

    part time sup: " no thats not what it is. package handling means that you dont break what is inside the package because it makes the company lose money. Do you want to make money or lose money?"

    for some reason this really annoyed me.....just venting here....

    I wonder how much volume ups has "given" to fedex because of the high amount of damages that come through the system over the years. this is a huge problem but nobody seems to be addressing it and the problem isnt always the hub either.

    You should have said. You're an Idiot! That would be Damaging a package! Then you should have showed him the difference by picking up a package and moving it( handling a package) Then you should have threw it across the building ( Damaging a package) Then Said " Do you understand or do you need me to show you again" :)

    Ah. Yeah. It's just we're putting new coversheets on all the TPS reports before they go out now. So if you could go ahead and try to remember to do that from now on, that'd be great. All right.

    Listen, nod, answer, then let him walk away...
    Anything after that is simply filler.

    If there is a repeat performance?? Listen, nod, answer, then talk to your steward.

    Just make sure you are doing your job.

    I've had three TV's over the last two weeks and all three were damaged.

    Obviously, you were doing something that made the sup have to explain to you about internal damages. I saw nothing wrong with the conversation.

    Ask him if he knows what a hertzdonit is? If he says no kick him in the balls. That should motivate him to stop asking questions.

    The only problem I had with the conversation is style used. A more direct approach would be to address the situation head on with out the mumbo-jumbo pussyfooting around. If the loader is mishandling packages and/or placing them in a truck in a manner that leads to damages, then come out and say what you mean. Asking a leading question such as that one is a waste of time.
    Say what you mean and mean what you say.

    Actually I was hoping the censor program would *** that out. I would have altered the pic butt me knot compooter smart. I used a black marker on it but I think that only works on my computer.

    P.S. Does anyone know how to get marker ink off a monitor?

    PYB, Dizzee or Scratch can edit it for you. I'm sure all you would have to do is ask. LOL:wink2:

    LMAO! Marker on the monitor doesn't work to well as an edit, huh?
