    Default A Gripe with the Amazon Van Delivery Drivers !

    I don’t know if some of you here experience those Amazon delivery drivers, but they are the most horrible drivers ever !
    There’s a Warehouse next door to us and those drivers are always cutting us off the road, they’ll be on the right lane and all of a sudden they decide to make a U-turn right in front of your big Rig almost causing you to wreck into them.
    Or they’ll be in front of you and all of sudden they brake hard in a fast street almost causing an accident !
    But in most cases they’re always in a hurry or confused in directions, up to now I don’t know if they been involved in a more serious incident or fatalities!
    anyways be careful with these drivers.

    Does anyone here have any stories to share about them!

    The only unsafe acts I have witnessed is stopping in the turn lanes with 4 ways on running across traffic to deliver a package.

    I'm not real impressed of the way they drive in my neighborhood. Absolutely NO reason for speeding in a residential area. For sure I never see Brown doing stupid stuff like that. Now I know who is the training company for FedEx.

    I'll add my 2 cents here.
    I see those "Prime" vans, or just unmarked vans making package delivery's all the time. We get a constant flow of vehicles that come down the dead end and proceed to back up, or turn around on my street, sometimes into driveways and folks lawns.
    Fedex delivery's are hit or miss. Sometimes they can't find my address, and we get the mix of ground and regular purple Fedex. Some better then others.
    The UPS guys are the most professional. They back down to our street, instead of nose down that requires turning on someone's property. Plus they always sound the horn while backing up. Not to mention, but UPS has placed my delivery in a plastic bag if it's raining.
    The last Amazon delivery I got, a case of motor oil, was placed on my step upside down ... even the box had arrows pointing up and clearly stated "this side up" ... but the van driver just tossed the box on my step.

    Plenty of differences I see.

    Certainly you saw enough freight loaded with the arrows pointing every which way but up. LOL

    Are you sure your vision isn't clouded by Our Glorious Leader and his "tax cuts?" Or is it the shameless worship of Rick Scott?

    Only difference is, those that pay an "extortion fee" to the IBT get great healthcare and a retirement plan.

    Oh, I understand now. You are a scab that works a Union job because you want the pay and benefits without the small investment of the dues and you like to run around and tell everyone "I don't need n stinkin' union." We had some like you at Oak Harbor too. Only difference I could tell them to their face how I felt about them.

    On the RTW band wagon that Scott is beating the drum for?
