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

    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.

    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.

  13. 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.
     
  14. 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.

    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.
