Yes we do love the Simpsons in the uk, and no we do not think this is a typical house hold in the USA. WE KNOW IT IS (Joke). Yes it true that the Spanish take a siesta in the afternoon, its because the shops and offices are closed for 3 hours!!!!. This custom is being slowly being withdrawn. As to the beer in Germany, i do not know. As you know if you are found drinking whilst working for UPS , on or off the road over here its instant dismissial.
Welcome UK-GOLFER, there are more of us European UPSers in this cafe..
I wander in every now and then, always interesting to read about UPS abroad.
Sometimes you see topics that are quite simmular as to ours but sometimes....
A fellow Brit , how are you, I grew up in shropshire but ended up moving to the states when I was 17, Los Angeles is slightly different to Shrewsbury mate I`ll tell ya . Am I correct in saying that UPS doesnt offer medical insurance over there ? (because of national health) and how is the pay in comparison to similar jobs such as the royal mail etc. Is UPS in the UK considered to be a sought after or relativly good Job. Do you drive in a residential or built up location and how many stops and pick ups do you average a day . Are Fed x and DHL the package leading companys in the UK still or are we ahead now ? sorry to ask so many questions , every time I get to come home if I do see a fellow UPS driver they never have time to talk , I guess some things are the same !
