    I knew they would do something big like that right after I retired. I waited almost 35 years for that and finally gave up. DANG!!!!!

    Nice words by UPS. Too bad retirees can't log in.

    The Fedex discount is unreal, and even applies to their Freight service. Regardless of the % it's nice UPS stepped up.

    Well we're off to a great start! First it couldn't link my old account, now it doesn't like my auto-fill info.

    I have not tried to log on to in years. I got tired of having my user name changed every few months. Then, every time I tried to log on, I had to create a new password. After about a dozen times of this, I gave up.

    Yep...if you're retired, good luck getting that huge discount! We retirees are just not "feelin' the love." :sad-very:

    VERY shortly-----like about the second you punch out on your final day. As far as shipping discounts go we always got a big discount-------------------------------------they just never knew it.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We had a (former) driver try this---he "borrowed" a tracking label from a pickup customer who was still on the SRM book. The only reason he got caught was the package came back to the shipper as damaged. This idiot lost his job over an $18 package.

    I work as instructed. I will walk up to the business (with my DIAD) and write up info notice but not sheet the package. If I know they are closed for the day then I will sheet it away from stop at 1:03. I was instructed by my mangers to do this and if there is ANY question on if I was there they can pull up the GPS of my car and also the GPS on the diad to show I was standing at the door for XXX amount of time as I wrote up the notice. I do feel funny sheeting it up as NI1 or closed in another location but that's what we are told to do.
