    I retired last week with almost 39 years of service. In all that time I was never given a warning letter. I had a couple of "Talk with" but it never went any further than that. Was I just lucky or sneaky?

    Please come back! You need to teach these millennials a thing or two about work ethic.

    Imagine how you’d feel if you’d just started out and had 30 years to go in today’s UPS.

    Here I thought you were gonna say you worked the "longest ever" as a small sorter, pick off, Irreg driver?
    Most here will say it was a different time! It was easier! You kissed something?

    Probably just did your job and made the best of it or felt it was a fair trade, hard work and great pay and benefit's.

    OR? You saw a light at the end of the tunnel and you went for it?

    Welcome to the end of the conveyor belt of life!

    It was a different time back in the 70's and 80's you didn't get a WL for every little thing you did. If you got a warning letter it was for something serious. Now I see drivers lined up 10 deep at the supervisors door in the morning laughing about getting them. I had two minor accidents early on,hit a garbage can and broke a mirror out with a tree limb they were written up as accidents but no WL.

    And No I didn't Kiss anything!

    Were you ever on the 9.5?
    Were you a runner gunner?

    My guess would be no way you were ever on the 9.5
    Might not have been a runner gunner.

    Every single driver in my center who's on the 9.5 is I the office every morning including myself, for nothing but dumb sheet. No way you you were on the 9.5 and never got a warning letter. Impossible
