    I cancelled my order and will make the trip up another time.

    I've definitely refreshed every five minutes for the last hour or so and got 404's every time. Bummer.

    I mentioned it. Plus two guys - who were the two I would have bet money on not having gone to college before all this went down - claimed they worked there during college

    Loading trucks truly sucked but my numbers brain was good at remembering zip codes, sorting was much easier and not so bad.

    I wouldn’t blame anyone for blocking me. I am kind of an asshole.

    A guy I work with still has some form of post traumatic stress from working a Christmas shift at UPS like 15 years ago. When he talks about
    it he gets the thousand yard stare, the whole bit.

    The stores I’ve heard; they should be honored like warriors.

    You could be referring to me.

    Everything they show you in your intro video is bullshit. I must have loaded more than 1300 packages in a little less than 4 hours like my 2nd day there and that became normal for me. That job kicked my ass and, like I said earlier, I realized I was making more delivering food than working there.

    @RauchbierFan33 I have a 2-year degree and a 4-year degree, and....they mean absolutely nothing now.

    I did 2 weeks at UPS loading trucks in Atlanta. What a nightmare. Just the exhaust alone, I'd go home and blow my nose and it would be black. Technically you were supposed to get help with boxes over a certain weight, but in practice nobody really wanted to help and everyone just sucked it up. No thanks!

    What degree were you pursuing at the time?

    Thought you would have hung with teamsters in North Dakota? You sound like some classist English prick.

    Lololol. I remember there was this spot with “over-sized” boxes that weren’t put on the belt but put directly in that spot right next to the stairs below the truck you’re working on. You weren’t supposed to load them alone. I had 3 boxes one night, one of my first nights, and I asked my boss, when’s my help coming for these boxes? He just laughed and told me good luck.

    Great trip from NJ to pick up the goods today. Didn’t feel the same not being able to enjoy some pours and relax, but thankful to have brought home quite a bit of greatness!

    The move was "I wanna talk to my shop steward."

    "Nah, I help you."

    "No, now I really wanna talk my shop steward."

    The shop steward was some dude making $30 a hour sorting the legal document envelopes. They didn't want to pull him off his kush gig to fill out paper work, so the help came.

    I'll buy Jimmy Hoffa a beer in hell when this all done and talk about how much blacker the boogers are down there vs up here.
