    You mean the turkey cards? Who cares? We all make enough money to buy our own turkey!

    Agreed ... that tradition would seem out of place in the new UPS.
    Not the type of thing a big corporation without a culture does. :wink2:

    I always gave mine to a fellow driver who would get as many as he could and feed the homeless. Way to go ups

    In our center we would collect the unused turkey coupons and donate them to a local charity.

    I always donated my turkey...but some of the guys would keep them in the freezer until the next fall and then use them for crab bait during fishng season.

    There are probably a lot of issues with UPS that would have Casey turning in his grave. I dont think the turkey is one of them.

    I usually find a road kill wild turkey sometime during the holiday season. I've kept the old UPS white gift box with the red lettering that used to house the turkeys. I put the dead road kill in the white box and my kids don't know the difference. In fact, they taste the same. But that may because of Jim Beam.

    I always gave mine to a good cause: the PT'ers.

    So what does the tin box look like? UPS collector's item?

    Jim Beam seems to make all holidays better.
  19. Ain't that the truth, right now with my PT hours I'll be lucky to afford a cornish hen. Oh well, at least I can use my benefits to check-in to the hospital after buying an expired turkey for $5 out of the back of wal-mart.
