FIRED: The UPS delivery man caught flipping middle finger at camera and flinging package at door (VIDEO)

~















Special delivery! Conan spoofs botched FedEx deliveries with comedy couriers who blow up packages, toss them in swimming pools and give a new meaning to 'handle with care'

Big freaking deal! Packages are thrown like that all the time unless they are marked FRAGILE.

Maybe we should detain this individual indefinitely without a lawyer in solitary confinement.

Bahahaha....asshats!

I've found that UPS consistently delivers packages in nearly pristine condition, where packages shipped Fed-Ex or UPS arrive with varying degrees of damage. I believe this individual to be an anomaly and should be punished, (suspended or fired) for what appears to be a personal thing with this particular customer. While it may not be the first or only time for this sort of thing in any company, my experience with UPS is that this would be unusual, NOT an "all the time" sort of occurrence.

Remember, UPS is a teamster union organization...

Remember, this could all be some sort of ruse to make UPS LOOK bad. Remember, this could all be a bogus, faked video. Besides, out of everything going on in this world, we're bent out of shape about a guy flipping the middle finger to a video camera? Get a grip, people.

i used to work for UPS and they will deny this, and this was way back over 20 years ago, but at the distribution center I worked at in NY you were told to work fast and told and shown by immediate managers the only way to work fast was to throw the boxes around, reaching behind walls of boxes stacked tight in the trucks a and heaving the whole down toward the converter belt

Wow. I know a lot of people that would be smiling all eight hours of the working day if they were pulling $35 per hour in a union protected gig like UPS.
What happened... was his hour lunch preempted by heavy deliveries for the holidays? Glad he can be picking up envelopes rather than chucking boxes! HA!

Even when specifically asked to ad extra packaging due to former bad experiences with broken items they do not do it.

UPS needs to lose some major contracts to make then try harder, like they did when they first started out.

Some of us flip off surveillance devices habitually as a form of good citizenship.

i went for a job interview at a ups facility in nj, it wuz part time $8.50 an hour, all package handlers were part time. no full time. it looked brutal. i did the whole tour AND WALKED OUT. THEY BEAST on you. guys watch you do mistakes THEN come out an yell at you. requiremet: fill a 65 foot trailer in 5 hours with no misplaced packages, by yourself. one guy one truck. turn over is expected the ad always in help wanted sites. the whole set up looked forced labor internment camp. i heard a supervisor yelling
at someone for sending a package to wrong chute. i try not to use UPS. rather use USPS instead because it is a union shop with better pay and conditions. dont believe me? go on a job interview for truck loader at any UPS facility. then get back here and post your reply.

There are some pathetic comments here ..Point no 1. This Bloke is Working for a living. Point 2. This is the busyist time of the year for deliveries. point 3. If he were not in a union his pay would be half of what he is making.Before making stupid comments try walking in his shoes.And just remember the greedy bankers have a union to.

Oh.

I didn't get it. Why was the driver fired?

My experience with UPS after 30 years of shipping, was disappointing. They have a giant routing terminal in Jacksonville, FL with 14 miles of non-motorized conveyers. Packages travel at break neck speeds until bottle necks cause them to crash, flip off the conveyers and hurtle 14' to the concrete floor.

When the economy went south and I fell behind on my pre-payments, they stole COD checks made out to my company and applied them to the bill.

I never had a problem with the drivers but tyrannical bean counters micro managed literally every step and stop that they made. If they fell behind schedule, a supervisor would ride with you measuring your stride and analyzing your interaction with the customers.

I switched to Fed Ex where they are faster, 20% cheaper, way more caring and professional. Each driver is self employed. 90% less damage as well. UPS would sell damage insurance but never paid a claim in 30 years.
