Dismiss Notice

Hi Guest. I just wanted to let you know that there will be some service disruptions here over the next few days. We're moving to a new server and then the latest version of xenforo is going to be installed. ~ cheryl

Lost $1000 worth of hops today

Discussion in 'UPS Discussions' started by BrownSnowFlake, Aug 1, 2019.

  1. A little after 11:00 I pulled up to the brewery and scanned the package. They were closed and the brewery is on the main drag that I drive through 3 or 4 times a day. So I voided the stop and put the package back on the truck.

    I continued on my route and at some point discovered my back door was rolled up about 3 feet. Shame on me. I secured it and continued. A few hours later the door was open again. After that I started using the chain.

    Got back to the brewery around 18:00 and that box is nowhere to be found. I’m stressing. I thought maybe it was buried under my 100 pickups. I turned the whole truck over 3x looking for it but it’s a fart in the wind. I know I didn’t misdeliver it. The only possibility is it fell out the back.

    So my question is: How long do i have to wait until i can try to qualify again?

    18:00!? At that point it’s missed, but the bigger problem is you better report it, and not sure on the length of time you have to wait.
     
  4. Why did he void the packages? They was closed

    What do you think @Turdferguson ?

    Don't get ahead of yourself. Did you report the missing package and what you think happen? Article 10 of the NMA covers this. You may be disciplined or charged for the amount the package was worth but not both.

    The business hours could have been after 11am.

  6. I don't care what the business hours are. I have tons of people with crazy hours. Sometimes they are not there during the posted business hours. As long as I'm not there between 12-1 and after 5 they are closed. If I get a chance later I will make another attempt

    Oh crap dude, CL 1, and move on, woulda half saved you right there, until you put it back on the truck ( ALWAYS slam the door down).
     
  8. I already talked to three supervisors about it when i got back to the building. This is where it gets weird. Around the time I was voiding the stop, the computer shows a scan for that tracking number two states away.

    Is this a glitch? Or did that box quantum-tunnel to Illinois just to mess with me?

    report anything missing and put in the dvir that the door keeps rolling up. IDK what POS package car they gave you where the door does not stay down. Nobody latches these things unless it is longer travel.

    No, dishonesty is a sure thing when it comes to termination. I'd rather pay 3k a little at a time then look for a new job.

  11. This is a brewpub / bar, they open and close later hours. I was just trying to do a good job...

    I whole heartedly agree. I don't care what your Buisness hours are but some centers are stickers.
     
  13. Closed one cover your ass. I seriously doubt any sup would care unless it shows up as missed.

    True, you should always be able to see the handle of the door in your monitor, if not write it up ( the way we were taught).
     
  15. This doesn't add up.

    best case scenerio is you get to qualify prior to making payments on the $1000 lost. That's easy to pay off with this job so long as you get to keep it.

    I'd ask for a print out of that. Might help down the road. Tell your steward to demand it.

    With your avatar it's hard to take your story seriously.

    What did the sups say?
     
  19. “What do you mean you lost it?”
    “You must’ve misdelivered it”
    “You should’ve put the chain on the back door”
    “Go home and think about where it could’ve gone”

    The lady in the office was already taking a call from the brewery when I was punching out. She pulled up the records in her computer. That’s how I knew it was worth $1000 and about the 11:20 scan. It hadn’t reached the attention of my center manager yet but certainly will by tomorrow morning.

    Well you can try and do 1 of 2 things in my opinion.

    Slyly convince your center manager/sup to give you a warning letter for it so that they can not charge you.

    Or

    Convince them to charge you so that they can not disqualify you for it. ;)
