    Some of the UPS centers around Chicago are melting down. They delayed my package so I asked one of my customers who is one of their part time package handlers why it's delayed. He said one of the local centers was over 10,000 packages behind.

    my bro-in-law works part time nights at the UPS hub in my state. he unloads the brownies, sometimes the trailers. they wanted him to start work at 2:30 PM, but he is still at his day job at that time.

    but he will be earning some extra cash, as when he does show up, at or about 5, they start him right away and he may not get home till 10 PM, or later. i told him to take all the hours he can handle, but not to over do it, he still has his day job......
