    As the title says.

    New guy working as a reg-temp driver at our center comes in sporting a Randy Savage beard. Multiple inquisitive minds ask about the beard to which he responds "I have a documented beard exemption. I'm Rastafarian."

    I always thought Rastafarians smoked a lot of weed and worshiped some Ethiopian king who was the reincarnation of Jesus or something.

    Our guys get flack for wearing flesh-toned under armor to cover up tattoos but he gets to come in looking like

    So far it's going over really well with the Ted Nugent demographic that makes up the bulk of our drivers.

    Is there a question that you would like to ask?

    Honestly? Not really. I mean if you put a metaphorical gun to my head and said "ask a question" it would probably be "does Rastafarianism count as a legit beard exemption?"

    It is if you can get a doctor to sign off on it.

    You can get a "doctor " to sign off on just about anything.

    So a doctor has to sign off on a religious exemption?
    Wouldn't his priest/rabbi/whatever have to sign off on it?

    If he's a new guy he should be assigned to the worst part of town where no one gives a crap what he looks like.

    This place doesn't even seem to care if packages get delivered anymore. We have carts of "futured" packages everyday. They won't care about beards and appearance soon enough. Maybe already.

    In my building those packages get a different PAL than the standard future package.

    The only non-Surepost that should be Futured are known closures.
