    I've always liked UPS better than FedEx for numerous reasons, but what happened yesterday when I was doing a favor for my boss will ensure that I never use FedEx again unless I absolutely have to...

    My boss is from Nebraska and wanted me to mail a shirt and a pocketbook to her younger sister who lives in Nebraska.

    I come to find out that everyone has to show ID when mailing something, even when paying in cash! Apparently, according to the clerk at this particular location,a package bomb went off in a FedEx warehouse and some people were injured. I can understand the need for extra security, but please explain to me how carding everyone including sweet old grandmothers is going to prevent this from happening.

    I made it very clear that I was not going to be showing my address, since the return address was my boss's house (obviously different from my home address) and it was going to her sister in Nebraska. Obviously if I'm mailing something myself they have my address so I really don't give a shit, but in this case it was the principle of the thing. Basically, FedEx does not need my address since I'm just a third party doing his boss a favor! I gave the clerk my military ID, which does not have my address on it. I also found out that my name will have to be included on the shipping label (WTF?).

    Needless to say, I will be using UPS from now on.

    This is the very same basic reason I buy all my M-rated video games on Amazon. They don't require proof of age, only that your credit card is valid!

    It's their company, and they can do whatever the fuck they want to do. Why is showing your ID such a big deal?

    FYI, UPS has only carded me one time, and it was one of those rare times I think it was justified...

    My boss ordered a relatively small package (forget what it was, something for the bar), and UPS made so many attempts to deliver it to Puck that they were refusing to do so and someone had to come to their distribution center in Horsham to pick it up.

    My boss sent me one afternoon in November, which happened to be the first (and so far only, as of this post) snowstorm of the 2018-2019 winter season. I put the tire chains on the Tacoma and set off on my mission.

    I made it to UPS incident-free, and my boss had told me ahead of time that I'd need to show my license to get the package, so I was prepared for that. Security waved me right through, butthe people at the front desk initially would not give me the package.

    I played "I've just driven from Doylestown in a snowstorm and my boss is paying me good money to do this" card, and presented my license. One employee was like "How do we know you're from Puck?"

    I have the employee a "Seriously...?" look and pointed to the PUCK logo on my shirt. The other employee was like "I'd let him have it..."

    I got the package and ended up pushing a Kia out of the snow on the way back...

    I couldn't help but notice your "Combat Veteran" license plate...

    My dad wasn't in the Navy for 25 years and was deployed a few times but never actually saw combat. If we lived in Hawaii, would he just have a license plate that says "Veteran"?

    Yes it has an American Flag and says Veteran underneath. Bro these people have your address regardless, you get packages deliveried to you from time to time. Relax a little it’s not the end of the world. Not everyone in the world is out to get.

    I just thought cash was the bona fide way to get out of showing ID...

    Also, I refuse to show my ID when using a business check while buying stuff for Puck because I don't want my name and address showing up if the check bounces (checks from Puck have bounced before not due to lack of funds but technical difficulties).

    Nope. Showing your ID isn’t a big deal. I actually don’t mind when business do it because it gives a little bit of security and accountability. I bet if they typed your name in the ups or fedex computer your address and phone number would pop right up.

    The general manager of the local supermarket agrees with me too, and allowed me to use my boss's driver's license number instead of showing my own license!

    How about this one...?

    This happened in probably 2013 or 2014. As you know, I in a special education program called the Bucks County Intermediate Unit from the time I graduated from high school until a few months after my 21st birthday. One of their facilities was right near my college, and I made arrangements with one of the few staff members from the IU who I actually liked to stop by for a visit (I'd done this before without issue).

    To get in, you had to press a button and be buzzed in. I did this, and this kid who was clearly intellectually disabled comes to the door. He is wearing a yellow and orange vest, as if he is supposed to be some sort of security guard, but he was clearly a special ed student.

    I gave the first and last name of the person I was there to see and said she was expecting me. I also told him my name. This student asked to see my ID, and I flat out told him no. My reasoning was that he was not a cop, a security guard, or a school employee, and it was none of his damn business where I was from.

    As I said, this kid was clearly special needs and had no business acting as security. An argument started between us and a teacher (unfortunately not the one I was there to see) came out to see what was going on and started getting all uppity with me. Finally, the teacher I was there to see appeared and confirmed who I was. The other teacher basically cornered me and started going on about how I was required to show ID to this intellectually challenged kid and I would be kicked off the property if I gave an attitude. I basically ignored her and never had an issue again...

    I thought I only needed good credit to buy a house...

    One of my favorite quotes is this; "Anyone who gives up freedom for security deserves neither."
