Dirty Pool, UPS

Dirty pool. That’s not the way to play the game.

Seriously. Try something else, because this strategy is really lame.

What do I mean by this? Well. UPS is attempting to pass a bill that reclassifies FedEx from being a primarily air-based transportation company to a ground-based one (which is silly, because most of their business is via airplane), which would also bring union labor into FedEx. While on the surface this seems like a good idea, it actually kind of sucks, because if FedEx workers go on strike, one of the potential things that happens is that people who need organ donations and transplants *right now* can’t get them when they need them (not to mention the extended effect on businesses and the like). This sort of strike happened within UPS and had pretty bad consequences for all kinds of people who aren’t UPS.

Ultimately, this will also make you pay more to ship things, because you’ll be paying to help bail out UPS. Not okay.

Brown Bailout

Go there, write letters to your congresspeople, representatives, and hey – even UPS.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
