Wrote a song inspired by my years at UPS. I think many of you will relate. :)

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Steven W. I'm a driver out of Tualatin, Or and have been with UPS for 27 long years. Overall, I'm very grateful for this job as it pays well and has great benefits, but like probably all of us, there have been chunks of time in our careers where we were slightly less than happy with our jobs. :) About 10 years ago, when I was pretty unhappy with the constant overloads and being reminded of over allowed hours on a daily basis, I was inspired to write a song. I originally had this idea based off of the Married with children character Al Bundy, but because I was hating my job so much at the time, it became a blend of Al Bundy and my life. I finally recorded it with my first complete album that I just finished and wanted to share it with other UPS'ers because I think many of you will relate and maybe get a laugh out of it.
    The song is titled, "Livin' the dream" and you can listen to it here:

    I hope you like it!!

    Hi, Steve.

    Do not use your real name as your user name.

    That is all.

    Thanks for the tip, but I don't think I will come here much to vent about UPS etc. I do enough bitching at work and usually have it out of my system by the time I get home. :)

    Seriously. Please do not use your real name as your user name. CHANGE IT. I realize you want to promote your music which also violates our house rules about self promotion but I do get what you are doing so please change your username and post music from an anonymous source that doesn't include your full name.

    You are responsible for protecting your own privacy and respecting the privacy of others. This means no posting of your own or any other person's full name, photos, email addresses, work or home locations, job titles, phone numbers, addresses, Social Security numbers, or any other personally identifiable or private information. This also means your full name cannot be used as your username or posted anywhere on our site.

    If you have been there for 27 years you should know enough to keep your identity a secret. Expect to be called into the office any day now to explain your song.

    I don't think he gets the point if he continues to use his real name. Or he just doesn't understand feedback.

    This is Cheryl's House, and all are welcome as long as they follow the rules.
    You have been asked by Cheryl and advised by others to comply with the rules, and you have refused.
    I personally have no regard for a person who comes in and disrespects others in the manner you have.
    Have a nice life, sir.

    Instant song lyrics:

    Runner gunner all day
    Gettin' no sleep at night

    There's no end in sight
    No no no lunch for me
    Gotta' heavy load you see

    I'm a runner gunner runner gunner
