    dow down slightly. S&P up slightly. Ups down from 114 yesterday to 105 today. JFC. One step forward, three steps back. This stock is sheet. Don’t even know why I continue to buy. Money would be better served in 401K

    Buying UPS stock over a well-diversified stock market index fund has never made sense to me.

    The only advantage to the stock purchase is that it’s a nice little piggy bank, that can be partially accessed anytime.

    It did when DESPP first came out with a a 10% discount on the last day of the quarter.
    Now ... I can't argue with that.
    Just don't spend it on a car/truck instead.

    Q1 numbers were garbage.
    Drastic cost cutting for Q2.
    No pens
    No TP
    No Parts for Package Cars.
    Fuel Rationing.

    UPS is going broke.

    Funny story. This thing called ups existed for over 90 years before the stock price ever mattered. The sky is really not falling. Could we get some soap and tp in the bathroom please?

    For weeks we were getting bombarded every morning with inane quizzes, written assessments, DOK tests and other miscellaneous safety drivel that we were supposed to fill out during the PCM.
    That has stopped now, for the simple reason that we are critically low on printer paper and cannot order any more.
    Silver linings...

    Both OSHA and the contract require functional bathrooms with soap and TP. Sounds like you need to file a grievance.

    Nope. Amazon drivers in Prime vans coming from a local distribution center. Amazon even offers free same day delivery by 9pm to my neighborhood if the Prime customer orders by 12pm.
     
  19. Nothing wrong with buying a little bit of company stock, just don't put all of your money into one thing. We have seen far too many threads posted on here, I need to sell my stock, I need to cash out my 401k.

    Ever wonder why Amazon and Fed Ex are out making deliveries while we’re driving in to work? How come they can get out early? But with an 8:30 start time, we’re lucky to leave the building by 9.
