UPS Delivery Guy vs. Icy Driveway

357 ratings | 31390 views
Last week we had an ice storm. My driveway was smooth, wet ice... super slippery. I heard the UPS truck pull up so I opened the garage and told him to just leave the package at the sidewalk and I'd figure out a way to get it, but he insisted on getting it to me. Above and beyond... this guy is awesome.

The video's cute, but this is really just foolish. He could have walked in the snow on the side of the driveway to keep traction. How many more deliveries is he going to make if he injures himself?

You all want your packages but aren't willing to put some melt on the driveway?🤔

Great job UPS guy. That’s dedication!
Brian Chernesky (9 months ago)
that's the teamster way!!
Blaine Burris (9 months ago)
He literally could’ve just backed the truck closer to the house 🤦🏻‍♂️😂💀
Walt Gorczowski (9 months ago)
He did try to back up further... couldn't (tires just spun). Hard to see in the picture, but the driveway gets steeper at the sidewalk.
Gary Campbell (9 months ago)
We are trained not to back up to houses. And he may have already tried and was spinning his tires. He did the right thing stopping where he did.

He deserves a raise.

In the northwest a driver who works 40 hours a week will make $1520/week or 79,610/year. But very few drivers work less than 45 hours per week. For every 5 hours of OT a driver works he increases that rate by $285/week or $13,680/year (48 weeks figuring 3 weeks vacation, 1 optional week). That means at 55 hours a week a driver will make $79,610 + (13,680 x 3) = $120,650 a year.... that's dead on accurate. And the wages are slotted to go up another $3.00 an hour by 2021. Currently they make $38.35 an hour for straight time and $57.52 for any hours worked over 8 hours per day or any hours put in on a 6th day punch. That will increase to $41.05 per hour or $61.57 Per OT hour by 2021. A driver who works 55 hours a week when the contract is fully mature will make $130,330 per year.... So ya. They do just fine for themselves. A teamster will tell you that their pay raises arent keeping up with inflation but I think the General public would have a different perspective if they were making 130k for delivering cardboard. Oh, and don't forget the Cadillac insurance they get. $0 copay, multi million dollar cap...

There was an icy day here this year and I was out clearing my driveway when I saw fed ex drive by. I kept waiting all day for my package and then it said package exemption- weather. It was on his truck.

Hilarious yes, but if you don't work for UPS you have no idea how terrible this is. First off he's backed in driveway, big no no. Second he has no cleats on. Third he should of walked on snow. I'm not trying to be debbie downer just letting people know if he got hurt UPS would say it was his fault.
volcano hi (9 months ago)
ups drivers are usually pretty good and not running into mailboxes or stuff. One time they pulled me into the office and accused me of pissing on the customers door of all things.
jake z (9 months ago)
hi  sounds like you know how UPS runs for sure. I just know the first thing they would ask if something happened was "were you in the driveway". Basically you're on the hook then, anything happens its avoidable in their eyes.
volcano hi (9 months ago)
he is a dummy, that couldve killed him. I fell really bad in the carwash because they told me to wash the truck and i got out and it was a sheet of ice. They wanted it clean because of some management inspection the next day.
volcano hi (9 months ago)
usually you travel in a line but if its one stop on the road you have to turn around. At any stop like that you always back in. That way you clear the area first visually and then you give a little honk while backing and using your mirrors and the rear viw camera. Its always safer to back in vs backing out because lets say in between you getting into the truck and doing your stuff and then starting it- Who knows if a baby just crawled under your truck? or more realistically its just easier to clear the area on the way in. Also its easier to drive away fast when you drop off the package that is obviously damaged. I was a driver but before that I worked in the building and sometimes a bowling ball would be shipped. It would turn the box round and it would then roll on the conveyor belts and destroy all the other packages. theres 50 foot tall slides with a `12 lb ball rolling down it.
jake z (9 months ago)
@volcano hi you only back when neccessary right? Obviously this wasn't necessary. I'm just saying UPS wouldn't be happy. But hey the customer got his toaster so cool.
