    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I think it is time to clear the air about Whatd'yabringmetoday. I do get to work about 30-45 minutes early. I do get EDD and go through it to make sure that what is in EDD should be on the car as our dispatch sup, although he does try, is not the best that I have seen at that position. I will show him pkgs that are in my EDD that should not be, including NDA, but rather than change it in the system he just changes the lane number. I get to work this early because our center manager will let us go if our cars are wrapped, sometimes as early as 15 mins. If my regular loader is there I don't have to touch a pkg; however, if he is not I end up helping his replacement close out the pkg car and, at times, I do help out more than that, although I have worked hard on staying out of the pkg car. I do not set my pkg car up stop for stop as I have my EDD setup stop for stop. I have had customer service issues in the past but have worked on hard on reducing these and have been complimented on doing so. I do not know what his agenda is here and don't really care. I come here to enjoy myself, to interact with others who know what we go through, not to be attacked. Am I the most popular guy in the bldg? No, not by a long shot. Do I care? No. They all think I run all day--they don't have a clue. I just happen to have an EDD that is stop for stop, a loader who is the best in the bldg, and a good memory and solid work ethic and I don't sit an BS at every stop. I am usually taking my lunch and break at my condo by 3:15/3:30 each day. Could I work on my customer service skills? Absolutely and I think that I have but I also know that more work needs to be done in that area. My problem is I don't think before I speak and I tend to get too caught up in the job. If my on car asks me a favor I will do it for him. If he asks me to run off a pkg on my way home, or to call another driver in the afternoon to see if he needs help, or whatever it may be I will do it for him as I respect him and know that he wouldn't ask me to do anything that he wouldn't do himself. I do not have the same level of respect for our dispatch sup and center manager, but do respect their positions. I have absolutely no use for any of our OMS clerks, Clueless, Useless and 6 Week Wonder.

    I don't have a clue who you are and don't really care. All I am asking is that you respect the time that I spend here. This is my way of winding down at night. If you have a personal beef with me, you know where to find me--I will be sitting at the picnic table. If not, leave me alone. Please. Dave.

    P.S. Tex--hope you are doing well--miss you.

    Hoax, Did you post this for us to read? Was there a particular point in this other than reminding me that I need glasses to read and I need a magnifying glass to read this?:happy-very::peaceful:

    I was going to edit this earlier but quite frankly I didn't know what to say. 1000 posts in a little better than 2 months. I am impressed. :happy-very:

    I don't get it. What's with the picnic table? Do they both walk their dogs in the same park?

    Getting better I think UpState, hopefully I will get well enough to go back to work before too long. I too miss some of the interactions many of us have had on here. Lately it's gotten to where every thread becomes a slam fest and frankly that isn't as much fun. It's hard to have a decent conversion or debate with people that flat out lie, twist the truth and ignore facts simply to try to "win" an argument. The people that demand "honesty, yet have no integrity themselves and then try to bate someone into disagreeing with them are the ones that hols no attraction from me. This is sad too as I enjoy conversing with the majority of posters on this board. I try really hard not to impune anyone's personality and when I find myself doing so, I have to take a break but sometimes it just has to be done. That's it for now.

    BTW, good post. I look forward to post 7K.
