    Like most trucking companies, the uppity ups could not care less about your time.

    Profits first. People second. Or third.

    Well, how about how to abuse people?
    That's still "thinking" about people, right?

    Yikes that stinks. How far was the trailer yard to where your live load was? Maybe should have started at 0630?

    I HATED detention even when I WAS hourly back when I worked with UPSF. Paid or not, I can not stand wasting time at a shipper.
