    Wake up guys.

    Not surprising UPS said its drivers are trained to follow all traffic laws, including where they park.

    Follow all the methods all the time or stay on the hook for UPS.

    It’s your call.

    You would have been in and gone in less time than they spend yelling at you about it.

    Safer to block the spot or if occupied block the car in.

    I’ve seen old people back into a ups truck parked 50 feet away. I’ve sat behind old people driving for literally 2 minutes while they tried to decide to pull out or not with not a single car passing on the road in those 2 minutes. Only to have them back into me with my horn whaling when a car appeared far in the distance.


    Get @rod off the roads

    Go for it, do it your way. It doesn’t change the facts:

    UPS said its drivers are trained to follow all traffic laws, including where they park.

    I love my grandparents dearly and I have a great respect for the elderly.

    We are told to block filled spots now as close as possible.

    Are you saying that UPS drivers are not trained to follow all traffic, laws including where they park?

    Who told you this?

    In certain circumstances yes, not all though.

    So, we are supposed to back into a parking spot? Lot of places don't have loading zones.

    That would be a question you would want to direct at you immediate supervisor.

    Here is suggested wording, use it if you want:

    UPS said in the press that its drivers are trained to follow all traffic laws, including where they park. So, are we supposed to back into a parking spot?

    Like hell I'd be apologizing. "Get :censored2:ed" is all she'd hear from me.

    That would not be a very kind response.

    Taking my picture and trying to get me in trouble and shame me over something stupid isn't very kind either.
