Terry was a loving husband, father and Pee Wee Football coach. Terry was having health problems as many of us do as we get older. Terry had been working for UPS for fourteen years so he started while the company was privately owned and they still referred to him as a employee. Since the company went public they started referring to him as a "Human Resource Asset" so they could de-humanize him and make him more like the nut behind a wheel on a package car. Since Terry started working for UPS many other things changed that made it easier for UPS to force older workers like Terry out the door like putting a lifetime limit on tuition reimbursement and reducing the available training to only things they had to for legal reasons. Terry will be replaced by a twenty something that just spent 100 k on a education and will be in the same situation as him in 14 years if the technology they are so proficient in now is no longer the latest fad. Terry was yet another victim of UPS billing management he was PIP'd to death. At his exit interview they may as well have put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger. He has no realistic chances of being rehired at his age for a comparable position in another company.
