    Perhaps UPS Logistics will be the hardest hit by our reputation being destroyed. We need to have a sense of humor about it.

    Any creative souls care to add verses to the "That's Logistics" song?

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    Our reputation is by no means "destroyed" and the public will have forgotten about this long before the next Peak begins.

    Amen brother. This is just a blip in the radar that will go away faster than you can say faster.

    I'm giving it until tomorrow morning when they start reporting what Miley Cyrus did to Phil Robertson at the New Years Eve party.

    Miley doesn't need Phil. She enjoys twerking herself far too much.

    True. But it will become a news item again next peak. And UPS better be able to show they made some changes
    so it won't happen again.

    What is wrong with UPS's reputation? Did something go wrong this peak? :grouphug: Only 359 days til Christmas.

    I guess I'll wait 357 days before I order my gifts for the kids.

    I think they went into peak knowing there would be a certain amount of service failures. In the last few years I woiuld hear of drivers bringing back stops. This year a combination of a slow news day and Amazon's publicity stunt with the drones blew our failure out of preportion. Whether the problems at Amazon and UPS get fixed is highly doubtful. The change in UPS's priorities did not happen over night.

    I'm defiantly no economist but why the hell is it worth it to wait till the last minute as opposed to getting it in August through October. You can still find the deals with no stress.

    A whole new overhaul of the system is in the works at corporate. Running more areas, more preloaders, earlier leave building times. Basically all of the things we need to properly service our customers.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Because if you wait late enough you get a free $20 gift card.

    Just making fun of all the people who wait til the last minute, and then complain they didn't get their most important gifts in time. I like to have it all done early, makes a lot better season, and enjoy it more.

    I wasn't calling you out I was just trying to understand their logic.

    All is cool...I don't get that logic either. I don't buy too early for kids, because their wants change too often.

    That's true. To be honest mrs.407 buys everything in the house so I have know idea. I just have to buy for her and she takes care of the rest.

    Same here. Some years I'm as surprised as everyone else at what we give people.
