Don't know if anyone on here has seen the news of the mass shooting that happened in Minneapolis from a disgruntled employee at a local company but our delivery driver was on-site and one of the casualties. I did not know him well, but it sounds like he was one of the good guys and paid the ultimate price for being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Ahhhh. Minneapolis! The good ole PD-5! (That was Our load dock for it at EARMO)
Ex-UPS'r here.
I worked in the Earth City, MO Hub for a few years before transfering to the Jefferson Avenue Hub and package center in Downtown St. Louis.

Pretty much did it all.
Unload, Primary and Secondary Load, Metro Unload, DMP, Irreg Tram Driver, Irreg Sorter, Smalls... Also supervised them all.

I was a DMP sup in the months following 09/11/01.... talk about nightmares!

That pretty much sums up every UPS carreer!
We probably used to sling packages back and forth to one another Chip! I was there about the same time frame.
