I’m so glad I’m not the only one feeling the insane amount of literal pain, and breakdown of our bodie’s from this insanity, not that I wish it on anyone, I have at least 7 more years of this, at 55, I can honestly say I don’t think my body will make it.


I know how your feel , I think the same thing , I will work until I am physical not able to !!! I’m 51 been full time for 10 , 12 years part time… 22 years of this has heightened my own injuries .. Workmens Comp has a list on record !!! Ill be darned if I will go out broken from this job !!! Dont get me wrong I do love my job 🙂

I had a customer order a lawnmower. “Team lift” the package said. Not sure where the “team” was… probably watching me from their window. Nevermind the 10471050 bags of dog food that come through everyday..

Brent Russell

Last weeks “WTF customer?” was an inversion table! 60lbs of No-Team-Lift fun.

Debbie Grezik

We are screwed no matter how you look at it !!

Kristin Beaver

I had a lawn mower 2 weeks ago!

Michele Rios

I love getting those bc my Supo lets us write it up. Customer has to pick it up.

Linda Henderson

I had to deliver a barbeque/smoker to a customer’s house last Christmas. As he watched me struggle with the package (it was so heavy) he started laughing going “I guess now I know what my Christmas present is!”
Now I have a little portable cart for all those large heavy packages. That I ordered from Amazon lol

And it’s only going to get worse my fellow carriers. And rural carriers will never receive one dime of additional compensation for it. Ridiculous!!!

Keri Hamilton Boatner

Tracy Dehart

When you were hired you were required to lift 70 lb. Not one once more.

Laura Atzinger Klingman

Cody Bennett

They let Amazon do what they want

Ryan Feasel

Just stick the heavy item in front of the storm door, they cant open the door to get it.

Jason Fellenbaum

Glad I’m not the only one that thinks this way

Robert Ingenito Jr

And then they call up and whine ….

Deborah Chopiak Leal

Delivered a small frig, queen bed frame, folded wheelchair, etc. Ugh.


Cases of paper towels.
