    What are we getting? One year we got trees, another year we got frizbees, the package car mounted on a wooden base, and a key chain.

    Rumor in my building is that we're getting a small plaque of stamped metal from the first jet UPS used. No kidding, that's what I hear.

    Never kept any of that stuff. I don't even send in for the safety awards and threw away my 20 year award box.

    I heard that all of the pkg cars will have a device installed that subliminally makes you think that you've taken your lunch. Evidently, by the lunch posts on here, they have been testing it for years and have finally perfected it.

    Oh, wait.......Founders day........if anything, it will probably be some little trinket made in China,Vietnam, India, Mexico or Bangladesh. We don't make anything here anymore!

    Don't forget the warm insincere smile! (That will immediately turn into a scowl the minute your back is turned)

    Shoot - in our center we're getting PAS! Turning it on the day after labor day with few or no meetings with drivers. But it will be WONDERFUL! They have all the bugs worked out and everything will be sooo much better! Won't it? WON'T IT???

    My big souvenir from the Centennial Party is an "I raced the Truck" brown plastic bracelet. I hope UPS can top that next week.:bored:

    Just in case you feel cheated if they dont give you something nice,I give you this "quote"
    "The basic principle which I believe has contributed more than any other to the building of our business as it is today, is the ownership of our company by the people employed in it." -- James E. Casey, 1955 So much for founders day

    Last year we each got a gift wrapped Colorado Turd Bird. I think a present made from treated dung says a lot...
