You know, I'm tired of drivers thinking they are so important. Yeah, you work hard -- so do roofers and brick layers. I'm tired of you saying you are the face of the company -- ok, maybe you are on this one. I'm tired of you saying that you are the backbone of the company -- you are just a truck driver, nothing more. No more important that a supervisor, clerk, technician, or custodian -- we all have a job to do. You seem to think that no one has ever lifted a package before, or driven a truck, or sweated, or striked for having a wage of $25 an hour with benefits and a great retirement,... oh yeah, maybe you are the only one to do this. You are manual labor -- nothing more. If UPS could train monkeys to do your job, they would buy banana farms. You work no harder than many americans, you get paid more than many americans. If you left UPS, you have few options other than furniture delivery, bread delivery, propane delivery, warehouse work,... oh, you have plenty of options -- only, they pay nearly nothing. Then again, this is about what most manual laborers are worth. I do think UPS drivers should share in the extreme wealth of UPS. However, I don't think you are owed it -- just that, fair is fair. You are nuts if you think that coming to work wearing clothes given to you, driving trucks that are kept in good repair for you, delivering packages that are preloaded for you, on routes that were predesigned for you, returning to a building where the package are unloaded for you suggests anything other than an employee who has a very fortunate situation is sinful. Plant engineers keep the packages flowing, industrial engineers flow the packages, TSG keeps the engineer's flow plans running, custodians keep the hallways and pathways clear, business development keeps the business flowing. Everyone has a part. Without the rest of "unimportant" employees, your butt would be at a dollar store unloading pallets for peanuts. Stop it with the self-importance. You are overpaid manual labor with a DOT physical. Any one of us could do your job given time to adjust to physical aspect. You seem to think you are such physical specimens. A lot of you are dumpy looking oafs. Stop it with thinking your Bruce Jenner or Carl Lewis -- you're not!!! Many of you guys are uneducated laborers with bad attitudes. You got the best deal you'd ever get in your life and you make it miserable for the rest of us. I don't even have sympathy for you. Because we all work together, I deluded myself into any emotional attachment to you and supported your rantings about working hard and deserving the wages you get. One day, I stopped and thought about how I would feel about you if you wore,... say, Green uniforms and worked a company calling itself Big Green! When I stripped the emotional attachment, I realized that I wouldn't give a darn about a guy making $28 an hour who drives a truck delivering relatively light packages (by transportation standards). Stop it and deliver a box, already.
