I had this situation arise the other day and was wondering what other drivers make of it. I do have an anxiety disorder which make working for UPS...umm...well, interesting since I'd say it's borderline paranoia, but I think a lot of drivers get that way with the games being played...Anyways, the story... I was taking splits every day this week. Mon was finished work at 1705 and then told to drive 96KM round trip for a split. Ok, no biggy. Tues a driver was sick so ran his ressies. Ok, no biggy. Wed, safety meeting (we have safety tests here since literally half our drivers were thrown on road without proper training), ok, no biggy. Thurs was given a split about 30KM out of area...kind of ticked and asked Sup to try to give me a break since had been working until 2000 every day so far that week. Fri was given another split for same area (was informed at 1300 so was exausted and had been just running regularly instead of a madman with a split coming his way so got hoooooosed bad)... So I called my sup and was told, 'I can't tell you, it's confidential'. When I got back to the depot I asked another sup and was told, 'I dunno what HE was talking about but the reason for it is because we'd otherwise have to give 140 stops to this other poor guy. The person that usually does that area was on vacation.' Was that so hard to tell me instead of playing with smoke and mirrors? I'd MUCH rather have someone tell me the truth of the situation then a 'I can't tell you, it's a conspiracy and I'd have to kill you.' Does it bother anyone else out there that they don't know WHY? Or does that part of you just 'die' after awhile of this political mumbo jumbo until you become the UPS robot and just do as you're told with no questions asked?
