    Back in the day, the UPS magazine, The Big Idea, used to do a book of records about once a year, maybe it was in the January issue. Anyway, I'm sure a lot of upsers have stories about what they've seen or done in the course of their jobs. One record I recall was the longest driveway, another was the most stops delivered by one driver in one day. You get the idea. In this thread, you can make up the catagory and submit your record entry.

    I'll start it off with a seasonal record. I deliver to the house with the most inflatable christmas decorations, I think the owner mentioned that there were 75! I think that's a record that will stand for awhile!

    I have never missed a pickup in 32 years.(as I only have one it's kind of hard to mis it).

    What a coincidence!! I deliver to the house across the street. You know the one, where the kid keeps asking for a BB gun every Christmas. :wink2:

    There is a preloader that has been "working" for UPS for about 11 years. She has been off on disability about 8. That has to be a record somewhere.

    Helen, it may be a record. Reminds me of a driver we had when I started. She worked in package for 18 years and never delivered in a peak season. We all thought she was faking until she had a kidney removed one peak season...

    Sounds like you were just a blur of brown, Steward. Keep up the good work!

    In 24 years, I've never had a lost time injury and only missed 2 scheduled days of work. The second missed day caused some retaliation. When I went back the next day, all of a sudden my route had become a "training" route, and I was forced off it for 30 working days.
  11. My wife and I both work at UPS for 20 years. She has not taken a sick day or been late for work at all in that time frame.

    Wow, grunt and matt, those are both really great attendence records, much better than mine.

    BTW, our package car union steward and myself share the record for the most donuts consumed at a morning meeting...a six pack!

    421 miles in 9.2 hours not including lunch. (don't remember stops or pcs. - in my book @ ctr.)

    Oh, man, Emerg, I will never beat that record. 421!!!!! Yikes, I bet you were just a little underallowed that day! I hit 308 one day, and it wasn't even at peak.

    yes, sup was off next day - never did know how under/allowed I was.

    2150 miles in one week with the same set of empties? Record? Maybe STOOOPID dispatch record.

    Race, that reminds me of an old saying my Dad had about someone who was "going nowhere but making great time." Of course, if you were late, the upside is that there would be no service failures.

    Can go 110-120 miles between 2nd to last stop and last stop then same amount to get back to center.

    You gotta love that windshield time...but I think you overlooked a new record for you, Emerg, the greatest distance between two consecutive delivery stops. You're in the book twice!

    Drove 230 miles round trip with one package hauled over and zero coming back. That was the first night of my shuttle route when UPS started delivering to Norh Dakota (1971). I don't remember hauling more than a dozen packages total for the whole 1st week.
