    FedEx driver in trouble. LOL

    This FedEx driver is going to be looking for a new job. This was caught on a home security camera. I heard about it this morning at work, Looks like FedEx is going to be buying them some new comp equipment. You comp guys will really like this

    .... makes ya wonder why in this day and age with unemployment so high folks just can't be motivated to do a good job.

    That is pretty staggering. If you are unable to cope with your day, call in sick. Why leave a string of wreckage behind you on the way to the unemployment office? My service here has always been top notch although for the first time since I have lived here, I got a neighbor's package along with mine. It was after dark and the label was hard to read even in decent light. Took me a moment to figure out why I couldn't remember what I ordered . I have never missed a delivery and took this one over to the neighbors . . . although I did keep the one that was mine.

    Gotta say it, I like my UPS guy and Fedex guy. Even the 'OnTrac' guy from Amazon has gotten pretty good. Probably 85% of my orders though go through the UPS guy, so I tipped him with a Home Depot gift card. He seemed truly surprised and appreciative. I cannot complain about the service they provide...

    I have never done this delivering the mail or parcels. I treat my customers parcels as if they were mine. This guy is soon for unemployment.

    I do deliveries everyday to customers homes and shops, the CoC prevents me from saying bad words about this guy, but I hope he learns something from this..... I can hope can't I.....?

    I've only seen the Fedex guy here in TP once... he left a box on my porch yesterday, but we were gone... and the only complaint I have for the UPS guy, he's always by my house about 6:30 pm, screeches to a halt on the road, throws his truck in reverse and scoots up my loose gravel driveway backwards... it's at about a 20-25 degree angle and his tires dig holes as he slips in the gravel up the driveway... even my truck will slip if I'm in reverse. This spring when I have a few minutes, I need to get down to the bottom of the driveway and shovel all the gravel back up the hill.... my back already hurts just thinking about it.

    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Yeah, my driveway is all ruts as well. I think the delivery guys drive on my driveway more than I do! I've got a lot of maintenance to do to it.

    The UPS guy always used to just pull in nose forward until some point last year, then I noticed he would always pull in, and back around so he was facing nose out. I asked him about it and he said that company policy had changed and that they had to do that. He said they were even able to tell, via the gps tracking if they did or not and that they were required to do so. Apparently the company thinks it's more efficient...

    I need to get an ip camera up on my front door. When my drywall lift was delivered the guy dropped it with me standing there, we had a few words . On more than one occasion the boxes from UPS has showed up crushed. I've started using Fed-ex when possible and the rates are the same.
