"Lazy UPS guy" Next Viral Sensation?

200 ratings | 150192 views
Call it "extreme ground shipping," or "Lazy UPS Guy" if you're tracking YouTube. "I was sitting right there playing XBOX, and I see a big brown thing pass by," said John Torres, who may have seen the next viral sensation live from his Gainesville home. "He probably wasn't thinking or just lazy like the video says," he said. The video, uploaded on January 14 and already has close to 600 views, shows a UPS driver heading North along 34th Street, driving on the sidewalk- directly through a school zone. "It's a very mobile area, we see bicycles and pedestrians all the time," said Sgt. Joe Raulerson with the Gainesville Police Department. If an officer witnessed the delivery, the driver would have been hit with a $154 citation, and three points on his license. The UPS public relations team released this statement to TV20: "'Thanks so much for calling this to our attention. What is depicted on this video is in no way condoned by UPS. We don't tolerate any violation of UPS safe driving practices and will take corrective action, including termination, for anyone who isn't following our safe driving standards. The location is not clearly apparent, so we're investigating this video further. We value the unique trust the public places in UPS for the highest safety standards on the roadways.' Susan Rosenberg | UPS Public Relations Manager." "Right when they get out of school, that's pretty much when UPS comes around," said Torres, who is happy no one was hurt but doesn't think "lazy UPS guy" should be fired. "Maybe put him back in packaging," he said.

He was taking a dump in a DR bag. Finding a real bathroom would have dropped his SPH number!!

The reason I could imagine to why this guy is driving on the sidewalk is cause of fucking retarded people that complain. I work for FedEx and when there’s no where else to be; you have to slow down traffic or park by the side of the street. Yet you have retarded people shouting to move your truck and all like if you can park in front of someone’s driveway. Fucking idiots. You can’t put the truck in a capsule and into your pocket.

This guy was probably trying to make book. Ups gives new drivers 30 days to do the impossible. They teach you to work safe, but I can seriously tell you that UPS only cares about their numbers and not about safety. They teach you about safety only to cover their asses when something does go wrong. You cannot make scratch applying the methods. You need to cheat your way to beat their time which in itself is nothing but a scam. I was a driver for them, so I know the truth behind it.

Ups Force's driver into moves like this to keep their productivity up. They probably had him in the office that morning threatening his job if he didn't get his numbers up to their standards. What ever it takes to keep your job!!

of course those companies don't hiring people have two license suspension but hiring people that do damm driving will cause the camponies doubles.
CASCARET That's right ! (2 years ago)
Poor English and a possible dwi suspension on your driver license, that's why you didn't get hired.

Jordan E (3 years ago)
Wtf was this driver thinking?! I mean I know how ups pushes their drivers to the limits to deliver packages but that's just stupid to drive on the side walk and risk someone's life for a god damn package! Ups, FedEx treat their drivers like shit and all they care is about delivering 300 packages a day!

alexmhoffman50 Union defends everybody who belongs in union and pays dues wheather you are good or bad guy its their obligations,,sometimes good guy gets in trouble under bizarre circumstances that is not a reason to loose his job wherelse in other places they would fire you even if you were loyal 15 year employee ...

Why was he on thw sidewalk? Ups pays for double parking tickets lol
Donald Anderson (4 years ago)
My thoughts exactly! The driver wouldn't need to be concerned about double parking anyway. They typically are at a residential stop for less than a minute.

I dont think he should be driving on the sidewalk, BUT did you notice that there is no place to park on that street ?? Look carefully. Where is he supposed to park to access these homes ???

Michael Lucius (1 year ago)
You park on the street. That's that.
Justin McCurdy (2 years ago)
You put your flashers on and you park as far to the right as you can. I do it in a tractor trailer all day everyday. There is no excuse for driving down the sidewalk.
Les Davis (5 years ago)
Lazy UPS guy works and pays tax'e so Hulio and Salena can sit on their azz's and watch him go by about the time their children get out of public school. Then they have plenty of time to call and wait for TV reporter to come out and take an interview.

do yank your noodle.......doodle.
Yankie Doodle (2 years ago)
Yeah, you don't know if they work nights or not or if they had that day off, you POS.
Les Davis (2 years ago)
I know UPS drivers and especially P/T loaders bust their azz's to make a living. All I know about Hulio and Salena is they sit around looking out their window playing x box games during normal work hours and have plenty of time to stir the pot....sad

@ chinchillawrangler, Just like flying a plane is only pushing the throttle forward on take off and pushing a button for the landing gear on landing. Easy as that you moron.. You obviously have never done the job of a UPS driver so please don't make ignorant comments.

i dont get why people always bitch about driving for ups. whats so hard about driving around, getting out of your truck, and handing a box to someone...then making 35 an hour to do it...shit ill take that anyday
sapher2020 (5 months ago)
The management and their gimmicks to improve efficiency ruined that company.

F1ight Ju (1 year ago)
Prevan Warrior Princess how long did it take you to make 32 an hour ?
F1ight Ju (1 year ago)
Jake Riley nope i work at a ups in Michigan and package drivers cap out around $38
Prevan Warrior Princess (1 year ago)
Its the easiest job I ever had..and I do make $32 an hour I dont know where the other guy got $12 an hour lol maybe hes a helper or doesnt have the union..but I'm a female and mostly its the men that complain..they can be hotheaded😂😂 All I have to do is deliver packages and listen to music and drive its my dream job and most of the time I work alone which I love. Even during peak season its not too bad they can only fit so much in a truck but they do try to make as many as possible fit.. lol before this I worked for another deliver company that paid less for the same volume..(Amazon) small vans though which are easy to drive. For Amazon I made $1000 week and worked 10 hour days. No benefits I was a independent contractor..so working for UPS is a major step up for me..they have amazing benefits and pay.

I agree wit the witness. The guy shouldn't be fired, but he shouldn't be driving either.

That driver is gonna kill a child. Should go to jail and UPS fined $ 10,000,000 for not having a training program. And that woman with the "no comment" fired.

they should have blocked him in and called the cops.

That's why you should go with yout local postal company. We would drive on the sidewalk but at a slower pace. Also would not have a problem commenting on the situation.
MR.FACTS ARE RACIST (5 years ago)
Reminds me of that one lady who drove on the sidewalk to avoid stopping for a school bus. Seriously great way to represent the company you work for.
Dustin Bannister (5 years ago)
If your workload is that huge, then UPS workers as a whole need stand up to their employers, circumventing laws in order to complete a large workload just encourages your employer to keep doing so because you're more submissive to your employer than the law, there's no difference between a coke dealer and your employer other than subject of your employment, you're not special, get over yourselves.
Dustin Bannister (5 years ago)
$150 ticket? You serious, I have had a cop watch my head light blow at an intersection and that's what I got for a fine, no points but that is just complete disregard for public safety, even if you can see nobody is on the sidewalk, wtf?! As for the ones defending him, UPS aren't the only people who work hard for a living, your argument is like saying I have an excuse to start slinging heroin because of how hard my job is on my body, you're coming from a point of relativity, not objectivity.

oh shit 150 bucks!!! that will totally teach him!.. its not like i had to pay 500 bucks for driving 15mph over the limit on an empty street.... i could have lost control going my whopping 45 mph or the UPS driver could have only ran over small children. its soo justified
dbvetter1 (5 years ago)
How can you go faster on a sidewalk, Drunk UPS guy more like it.
supplysarge (5 years ago)
If you don't like his driving stay off the sidewalk.
Chakal (5 years ago)
and let me add...we do not receive extra hours like some clients tease us. it's get to work...or get out. Maybe you guys have good unions...not here. Unions? Here? you have a problem...you pay the laywer fee up front...WTF??? Trust me...some unions here are just another tool of the companies.
Chakal (5 years ago)
you all are talking about union and non union...so let me brainstorm you all. I work on a distribution company...we all deal with parcels like fedex and ups, medicines, flat screens, you name it. Some of us work up to 16 hours a day. We pay our own tickets if caught working too much hours. If we crash by driving dead tired, and believe me, I´ve seen pretty serious wrecks caused by falling asleep,we're fired or at least forced to pay the damage. Where's the union there?
ThaiChinaMalay (5 years ago)
You claiming there is no difference in quality of service between union and non union workers shines light on your lack of experience and wisdom. It is impossible to fire union workers when they do bad jobs. This emboldens workers to figuratively flag the bird to who ever they please without fear. Fed ex is non union and the public gets a better service delivered because of it. That is why I refuse to do business with UPS and always use Fed ex.
ThaiChinaMalay (5 years ago)
they are hard working, no doubt...but they are cowards working for a union shop. Unions do not care about quality service and create a mentality like this driver has...selfish. That's why I always check if a company is union. If they are, I never do business with them.
ThaiChinaMalay (5 years ago)
UPS drivers are not lazy...but they are UNION. Because they are UNION, they know their ass is covered and cannot easily be fired...any driver working for a NON-UNION shop like Fed Ex would be immediately fired for this. That's why I always use Fed Ex ....non union= better service

Then why do they keep leaving parcels under the welcome mat at my apartment complex (like nobody sees that big square shape buldging out from my welcome mat) and why do they think it's okay to leave packages with neighboors in my apt complex who for all I know could be meth addicts who'd just sell whatever it was...

P Anders (6 years ago)
Nope sorry, you have NO idea what pressures UPS management puts on drivers...I am a former driver myself! During a SLEET storm in Pennsylvania, my windshield wipers motor quit working. No kidding, I was told to "put my head out the side window and deliver the DAMN packages!" When I said that was a saftey issue for me, I was told I was a "poor excuse for a driver!"
Michael Kergosien (6 years ago)
the "viral sensation" got a whopping 500 views...
david cassin (6 years ago)
of course it doesnt but if u see the pressure the drivers are under to get timed deliveries done etc then u would understand a bit more,of course he should have been driving on the rd but he seen it as he could go quicker the easy route.i.e the path..
MistahPoopy (6 years ago)
walk is the wrong word i think you mean Drive in the sidewalk in a truck
MistahPoopy (6 years ago)
That must be some retarded ass mailman
MistahPoopy (6 years ago)
Still doesnt give them the excuse to do that shit
fsudrummer (6 years ago)
He did it cause there is nowhere to park without blocking traffic. I have delivered on streets like this many times but I wouldn't drive on the sidewalk he should have pulled up to the stop and then pull as far over as he could and put his passenger side up onto the grass to make it easier for cars to go around. That or back in to the driveway.

The guy had mentioned at the end to put the driver back in the office to stack boxes. You don't stack boxes in a office!!! Thats done in warehouses...duhh
Jacob Johnson (6 years ago)
regardless of how long you work (i've done similar jobs before) it doesn't justify driving in such a dangerous manner it looks more like he got frustrated and decided to take it out on the rules without thinking. also, if ups found out who it was he was prob. fired on the spot.
WilliamHPastey (6 years ago)
where the shit do you live that has people driving like that all day everyday?
MrLookatmenowbtch (6 years ago)
does ups drug test, cause this guy was obviously high on somethi.g

The real UPS can be found on the internet at Browncafe.
