Jesus H. Christ!
Trying to avoid a back lmao.
Dude they’ve got you brainwashed all to hell.
You offered the tie, @rod the jacket . Anyone offering up any underwear ?
What's so great about being in the circle of honor?
One accident in three years is nothing, I had three my first year. I had one a few months ago and I have 29 years of safe driving. Stuff happens, it only takes a second to lose your concentration and make a bad decision.
Very few achieve it.
Everyone else can make mistakes except the drivers.
but i mean what do you get from being in it
At my building you got a reserved parking spot near the door
I got to shake my DM’s hand a cake and a leather jacket
A parking spot, a patch to wear on your shirts, a name plate on your package car, and your picture up on the wall. All but the parking spot are actually a deterrent to me.
It's used to be a really big deal. You got new shirts with the circle of honor patch, a nice time and jacket. Then they would have an open bar and a nice dinner for you and then get you a hotel room for the night.
Actually the last guy that got it here, they took his DIAD off of him at the PCM and sent him home...paid!
Some people care about doing a good job and becoming the best of the best. That patch does earn a lot of respect from fellow drivers, management, retired UPSers, and even strangers I have run into while out shopping. There is nothing wrong in having pride in what you do, not everything revolves around money. Some people are happy with just being mediocre in life, whatever floats your boat.
Unfortunately now a broken mirror is an accident. Not like the old days....
A lot of people had fat thumbs when adjusting a mirror.
Blame the car washer!!!
And hitting a dog that chases your car. I did crack more than my share of side mirrors "adjusting" them with a tree limb. Management doesn't usually want to charge us with anything as minor as that. I had one Center Manager drive out to my area and replace one himself.
but then they stopped washing them
