Trucks Make Me Happy
There is nothing more rewarding than being able to see people’s smiles when they realize that you have made their lives a little bit easier. That smile on their face when they realize that you have driven a long way just shows that it was well worth your time and effort. I remember when I was first hired by UPS to work in their Atlanta warehouses. I was only 22 years old and the boss was a very old man, but he made me feel very important and valuable. He knew that I had a bright future ahead of me, so if anything was going to go wrong or be damaged in any way, it needed to be under his watchful eye.
The best part about working for UPS is all the other employees that I met while I was there. Everyone who works for UPS is extremely friendly and always makes it a point to be helpful. When you’re on a farm, you don’t necessarily meet the locals but when you’re truck driving, you do encounter the locals. These people that you meet and work with, may not necessarily be on the same boat as you, but they sure are helpful. That smile on their faces when they realize that you’ve made their lives a little bit easier definitely outweighs any amount of money that they might have to contribute to your retirement fund.
