Smile UPS uniform color a-changin'

To our colleagues who get a thrill laughing at our uniform as we stroll through the lounges, terminals, and climb out of our hotel vans, I am happy to announce that UPS is changing our uniform color. To dark brown. From **** brown, or chocolate bar brown. Don't laugh. It will be such a dark hue that our brown ties, belt and shoes will now be changing to black. The tie will be stylish, believe it or not, a kind of yellow/gold like Citation Shares pilots wear. The 3 and 4 bars will finally be visible beyond 8 feet, as they are about double the thickness they are now. Oh, and our flight cases are also changing to black.

I get so many people asking "what do you think of the brown uniform?"

I don't give a frog's fat a$$ what color it is as long as it takes me to 60 and beyond. I mean, people can't be serious.

I do think the new color looks sharp though.

I think it looks fairly sharp, too. I just figured out how to size pictures and uploaded my first avatar.

I hear that hats will be optional in our next contract, and a leather jacket will be an option too--and paid by the company.

Hats being optional would be cool.

I heard that we will have to pay for the jacket ourselves though.....I guess we will see. I don't care though, I love the leather jackets.
