A Trained Professional
Backed to the dock for the last time after 15,942 days. It’s great to be me!
Seniority date 6/14/1976. I have been blessed. Never missed a day because of injury. 33 years safe driving. I feel a little dinged up but time will clear that up. God is good!
Over the almost 15 years of my retirement when talking to those friends that still work at UPS I am told you saw way more changes than I ever did. I only delivered on paper (went into feeder at 23 years old)and a NDA was when you got in trouble for "NO DELIVERY ATTEMPT" to when they thought it better to micro manage skilled employee's who knew and did their job?? YES SIR I knew how to use a Micro Brake!
Always implementing new programs to only fail as they were done before under a different acronym and it didn't register to them its been tried before! Altho Fed ex didn't start until 1971 it was still in its infancy and we only delivered 2 say air (Blue Label) by end of day. Today's products and services is crazy time for most I hear!
So Congratulations! Yyou made it out! I tell every retiree get busy or die! You have hustled your whole life! Give back to the community, get involved somewhere! Let your hobbies teach others! Travel ! Don't just sit down and say its owed to you to relax! If you do we will read about you past tense!
