  • Retiring tomorrow from UPS after 32.5 years!!!!!!!!

    I feel so fortunate. Not only to be able to hold a job for that long, but, one with the same company!

    YAY ME!

    I am also fortunate, to find another part time job for 15 hours a week. I will be working in downtown Roanoke at the FretMill. I am going to be their electric guitar, amplifier, effects recording, product specialist. I will be playing the guitar for 5 hours, more or less, for three days a week. And they will be paying me. Shoot, I should be paying them!

    If you all can

    I play high gain, head banging , Wookie music.

    I am not in a band. I am in a cultski.
    I have no gear.

    Jesus IS LORD

      Congrats Gary.

      I envy you.

      Now, play that guitar.
      i have come to the conclusion that he is some form of god. no mere mortal has that many guitars/pedals/amp/anything. "It boggles my mind. His collection is the most glorious and true expression of GAS.To each his own though. Amazing collection of beauties. It takes some seriously messed up OCD to compile a collection like that.I hate BBreaker. Damn, I hate him.Suck it.We learned that bbreaker is some sort of god. A god of whine.fk this guy.

          Congrats- my dad worked for UPS about as long as you did. I hope your profit sharing and retirement is as good as his was, he got in on the IPO which went up 8 times or so from what employees got it for the first day! The days of companies having retirement plans like UPS have nearly gone the way of the dinosaur.

            Congratulations! WOW....32-1/2 years is an accomplishment. What did you do at UPS? I have a friend that works for UPS in Louisville that has at least 30 years. Nice stock options and pension!

              Hats off to you! That is an accomplishment. I have 37 at the same employer and in this day & age your lucky to have a company be around that long to even work for an extended period.

                Congratulations! Now those brown trucks will mean for you what they mean to the rest of us - new gear has arrived.
                I don't play a lot of fancy guitar. I don't want to play it. The kind of guitar I want to play is mean, mean licks.

                      Congrats! You've got me thinking now...I wonder if I could acquire enough skillz in the next 20 years to make a semi-living as a guitar tech when I retire? Hmm.
