Things have been a bit slow in the performance parts business so I took a third shift job at UPS loading trucks.

Got to tell ya, most of what you read about them is true!

We have a ball tossing packages across the depot, try to jam them in the conveyors and then pack them, as many as possible into the trucks.

My favorite thing to do, when I see I box with Summit or Jegs or some other performance name is to change the shipping labels on the boxes or mess with the delivery type on the box.

I can't wait until some phuckstick complains about not getting his shit on time....

I did not read the whole thread but I would recommend that you be shot on sight!

I flew for UPS and have been in the sort centers while they loaded my aircraft for departure. I have seen people throw boxes, have seen people drop boxes when they thought they were too heavy, but never saw someone intentionally alter address labels!

I hope you were just kidding, if not, I hope I see you one day so I can fuck you up! Dave

Union dues are only 2.5 hours of your hourly wage per month... think you should have stayed in "collage" lol.

I worked there for like 6 months. You dont know what hard work is until you have loaded or unloaded trucks in the summer in Texas. I was shredded when I left due to sheer weight loss from sweating. It wasnt worth it for the small amount of hours I got. Hell it was encouraged to toss boxes as hard and as far into the trucks as you could to pack it in.

I worked there many moons ago, not a bad place to work right out of school. You will lose weight and get very strong. I did it all load, unload, sort, did over weights and worked in smalls. I must say the best time was unloading on some dick and taking them down, and just hammering the crap out of a belt that just pissed you off because you had sent a couple packages to the wrong spot.. I saw a lot of tits and got laid in a couple trains while I was there too. Unload side is the place to be!!

I hear ya, I'm not worried about them. I get more $ taxes taken out of my weekly check than some of the haters make a week. Nothing but GM or Ford vehicles at our house hold. Non Walmart shoper. I love my union and the idea of being part of the lifestyle and work beliefs our parents/grandparents had when America was at its greatest.
