    If you are looking for UPS to look out for your best interests you are working for the wrong company. Look out for yourself and slow down when it’s hot.

    This is what you don’t get. Ups is not above the law, or osha mandates even though they think they are.

    Maybe ups can not give me a paycheck every week.... who am I to think they will?.... look out for my self right!!!! Ooo wait that’s illegal.

    Keep telling us bad ass you guys were back in 40s, nobody cares.

    Who wrote the bylaws that allowed the union to push the contract through even though we voted no?

    Who overpromised on pensions?

    Looks like if we were to put blame on anybody, it’s definatly not us “over privileged snowflakes”

    How many beers were needed to endure that much heat?

    None. Lots of water. Actually had the entire course to myself. Played a round in a little over two hours. This was in Palm Springs,Ca.

    Dress accordingly, hydrate, bend and snap.

    I start drinking at the 19th hole before I even tee off on #1. If I don't have a strong buzz going I'll golf too good. I need to golf poorly so I have an excuse to hit the driving range a couple times a week. I show the wife my terrible scorecard from the weekend and she basically shoves me out the door. If I golfed good I'd be stuck at home watching the bachelor or the Kardashiens.

    Worked loading feeders on a Twilight shift. Worse part of the day was opening up feeders that I had to load after they had been sitting outside in the sun all day. Many were refers used to ship fruits up from Florida, and yes the units were off. Nothing like opening a door and getting a face full of super hot air along with rotting smells. Got to the point where some one was asked to start early just to air out the feeders.
