    A particular customer was abusive towards you. You act professionally. Later, lets say 3 days later you happen to run into this same customer while you're on your own time and off the clock. Words are exchanged and punches are thrown. What could actually happen?

    I think the audience will need a few more details. As the scenario stands, it all depends on who kicked who's butt !

    If you lose the fight nothing but ego. If you throw first assault charges on you. If you win then it's his ego.

    Anything that happenned off the clock is usually not subject to discipline, however, UPS probably will(and should) act on this proactively for the company's future relationship with this customer. As much as I feel like your time off the clock is none of UPS business, I have to ask what the hell were you thinking? You lost your cool in a situation that you are very aware could potentially have an affect on your future ability to make a living for your family and yourself. I am very much the type of person that will not take :censored2::censored2::censored2::censored2: off anyone, but Getting into a fight with a customer, on or off the clock, is just plain stupid!!

    Your character becomes less than a potential for excellence and a man of peace.

    Forgive, unforgiveness eats at one like a cancer, it eats your soul and heart.

    I am not there yet, but I know.... I strive to practice this, and let the male macho ego die.

    Perhaps you should have asked yourself that before it happened? People have been killed over a lot less, I hope you don't have anyone at home depending on you. Best case scenerio from this is you learn a lesson in acting like an adult. Children react over emotion, adults think it through and understand consequences of actions before acting on them.

    A lot could happen. Do not let it get that far in the first place.

    Adults don't START fist fights. Sometimes they have to finish them.

    I swear, every post I read from you is one in which you act as some sort of moral compass.

    The customer could complain to ups that they don't want you in there again. Ups in turn could kick you off your route and you could grieve it and maybe lose. The customer could also file a restraining order against you with the same possible outcome. Don't :censored2: where you eat

    Sorry you feel that way. Unintentional. I do have opinions, and this was an opinion request.
