    Yes, they have ruined my holiday season with unreasonable long days. Not all of us of want an insane amount of overtime. I would like family time in the evenings even during peak. Not only that, driving with my eyes glazed over because I’m so tired isn’t safe either, and no I don’t run. I’m walking at the speed of a postal worker...slow.

    I hope so badly that we fail to deliver packages on time this year and get really bad press so they add loads of extra help next year.

    Quite honestly I don’t want to be over 9.5 even at peak. I have a family and a life.

    I’m top rate and looking at my checks isn’t even that exciting knowing there are nights I don’t get to see my kids before they go to bed. Money doesn’t buy that time back.

    Working for me. A couple hours of running air. Either running bulk and or oversize in a rental and doing some pick ups followed by hanging out in the car wash for a couple hours. A lot of hours but not a lot of work.

    Haven’t you heard? UPS is making sure our work to life ratio is being perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

    Call out. Your mental health and safety isn’t worth their numbers, nor is the money.

    Quit or keep grinding. Some people are desperate for your position. Missed times with family comes with this job and we all know that.

    At least you have a family. I don't even have time and energy for a date.

    Who am I kidding? Nobody would have me

    Not an excuse dude. There is a fine line between mental health, physical health, sanity and money. Answers like yours feed corporate greed. Keep grinding for your endless gold man. Best of luck to you and maybe someday they will have a “sign up list” for you guys that need more and more and more money.

    I can’t pretend to solve your issue or be a match maker. I can say that I was very very upfront with the craziness of this job with my wife while I was a new driver. She is used to the b.s. by now but it is hard. She does however know I am willing to speak up about the ridiculous hours.

    I made sure I was on the 9.5 list as soon as I hit top rate which
    was even easier under the new contract. I have already filed and was paid pre peak for a violation.

    Here’s the thing, I am not a young man anymore. I was early 30s getting into driving and slightly past my prime for running my balls off, but I finally learned to speak up and if they don’t like it, oh well.

    Many will say “ you’re a UPS driver deal with it” my response being almost 40 and more wise: Oh yeah: that’s why Unions exist; to just deal with it? No, it is up to us to make changes, speak up and vote no if the contract makes no sense.
