The UPS Truck Crashed Into my Building -Hanging Off The Stone Wall!

I wish I had a camera. The whole front end is hanging off a stone wall about 10 feet high.

Wall is destroyed. I feel sorry for the landlord. Crushed the corner of the building too. The driver forgot to set the brake when he got out.

Damn- where's a camera when you need one?

Way funny, years ago I work installing bank teller quipment, and one of our dumb workers - drove our truck around the building the we felt the building shake, and beam came thru the wall inside, I look out the drive thru window, and there he is, he crashed the druck in the drive thru.

The funniest think I have seem on the job in a while.

and UPS prides themselves on there safe drivers too...most of them are a bunch of potheads and alcoholics with the mentality of a 12 year old. (I should know, I worked for them for 3 years) I could tell you things that would make you never, ever, ever want to ship anything thru them, EVER....

Re: The UPS Truck Crashed Into my Building -Hanging Off The Stone Wall!

I strictly use USPS. With over 400 transactions on e-bay I have never, ever had an issue with any of my shipments that went to almost every corner of this world.. Even with my transactions here on Jemsite I used them to go to England and Australia all arrived perfect in under a week.

If you HAVE to use UPS, make sure you insure it, you'd be an idiot not too, trust me.

I don't consider it a lucky streak at all...Like I said, after seeing first hand how UPS treats their packages, USPS could be run by a bunch of autistic paraplegic chimps with one eye, and I would still trust them more..

Its funny because at the plant I worked at there was a big sign that said something like "5000 safe drivers" and "Not a single accident". Which I know to be incorrect, but they get around that by settling all there lawsuits out of court and off the record...

Watch..
Today, you get a call from 'em and they're like, "One of our secret spies found out that you're dissin' us on the internet!! WE'RE SUING YOU!!!"....

I don't think I spelled "sueing" right..
How do you spell it anyways?

Ehh.. Whatever.
