May he RIP. My story is kinda like his, and i been trying to get a job driving for UPS for close to 5 years. I am a broker courier right now, and just want to be an employee with all the great benefits and VACATION i might say. I have not had vacation in years. Anyways i met a few good drivers whom been with UPS over 20 years and they helped me get my foot in the door. I just had my second interview, now tomorrow i have my road test. I'm super stoked and pretty sure i will land the job. Being a courier is in my DNA, and been delivering since 2003. My only regret is not getting in with UPS to start with, but with that said i just want to serve my community the best i can :) RIP Jeff Hornagold

Its always companies like McDonalds and UPS that break the minds of some employees to do stupid shit like this. They fuck them so hard that they actually start to fall in love with their slave masters.

When an employee becomes part of the family corporate policy book full of rules and regs. gets tossed aside in favor of human emotions and real world dedication to their loved one's passing.

I've always loved UPS, MY 83 year old mother always called it ups instead of U-P-S. Mother was a doctor of special education, however her children loved the UPS vans, and so when she first started teaching ,the children didn't understand that it was referred to phoneticly, instead of pronounced, so she would encourage all her teachers to also pronounce it, due to the fact that everyday the children would wait for the UPS van to drive by, and the children would make the international motion for the UPS to "HONK" whatever driver was driving by the playground for the children with disabilities, they alw as new that they should honk when requested by the children. When mother passed at 83 YO, many UPS DRIVERS attended in their van behind my mother's hearst. Additionally there were thousands of mentally challenged kids walking with UPS drivers, and assistant drivers. I remember vividly that even though father was a Texas peace officer from 1953 till 2015 he always said that he had wished his officers could of received the love, respect, and honor that the children had for UPS drivers & UPS employees. Father loved the Marines because he fought in North Korea, and he always wanted to be an FBI AGENT, however he said he would have traded those goals, to receive the love & honor the students had for UPS drivers, never missing the chance to blow their horn , when requested by the advanced challenged students. He knew that his wife, my mother, looked at the Ups drivers, as true humanitarians with Devine intervention riding 9n their shoulder. When dad would go present at mother's schools with his subordinate officers, the young boys wanted to be UPS drivers, not police or firemen.
