Before we head out for the evening, I want to take a few seconds to say:
  1. Brown leaves my packages in the rain, uncovered.
  2. Brown still wears ridiculous-looking Bermuda shorts and high dark socks with black Reeboks in 2002.
  3. Brown will spend two minutes lifting up my welcome mat to put a 3-foot-tall box vertically under it, hiding nothing - while my dog barks like crazy as he does so and he can hear me screaming through the door for her to knock it off - when it would take him all of 2 seconds to ring the doorbell, because after almost nine months of living here you think he would know I'm home every day.
  4. Brown is secretly bitter he's driving an ugly-ass truck and the FedEx guys get pretty white ones with colorful lettering - and all the chicks.
  5. Brown needs to know that his stupid commercials are about three shades shy of making me completely lose it and start picking off UPS drivers at random - because no matter how well you try to market it, Brown is still the color of shit.
There. I feel all better now. And in case you missed the point of this...

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

I like my brown guy. He's a good one. But, I agree... those brown colors have got to go!

It's not so much the colors even -- just that stupid friggin' ad campaign that is driving me UP THE WALL. I loved our UPS guy in St. Pete, but the one we've got up here since we moved to the 'burbs is absolutely horrid.

How about after living here for almost 5 months brown still cannot find me! Or my packages get to my local brown facility & then it takes a minimum of 4 days to get 15 freaking miles! Since living here brown has lost 5, count them 5 packages between the local center & me! Brown lies to me & says my packages are on the truck "out for delivery" when really they can't find them! I HATE BROWN!

you know, at my fiance's house in PR.. brown can never find their house to deliver them things but the postcard they mail to tell you that they have an invalid address gets there fine

LMAO! Thanks! FedEx Rocks!

Wierd... the only problem I ever have with them is that things seem to get broken while under their masterful care. I get my deliveries. In pieces. Not good. That's why I say "OOPS" instead of spelling it out....

Is Reebok even still in business??

You would think that they would have thought of "shit" when their advertising department suggested the BROWN campaign...amazing.

hehehe!... awww... not all the brown guys are bad. My UPS guy is really funny and nice. He's even brought heavy packages INSIDE the house for me instead of just "handing" it to me, or leaving it on the doorstep. He also liked teasing me around xmass when I refused to do any shopping except for online... he was making daily stops at my house... cracking up each time telling me "you know.. you really need to get out and go shopping OUTSIDE your house!" LOL!

Wow! Not only another Sooner...but a Ponca girl nonetheless! My best friend is from Blackwell...can't tell you how many times I've made that drive across Hubbard Road to see movies and go to some supper club over there that I can't EVER remember the name of. Anyway...let's hope we KILL Mizzou today...BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMER!

I'm sure you've all heard the old joke from back when UPS had a strike ... "FedEx and UPS merged and the new company's called FedUP..."

Anyway, I can't say anything bad about brown, it's also the colour of my skin and I'm rather proud of that.

I have a really good UPS guy that comes to my job. He's super nice, and always goes out of his way for us - even suggesting his father-in-law with a digital cam when we needed some pics taken (who volunteer for just a few collars for his rabbits!) He teased me the same way Jennifer mentioned after I ordered almost all my Christmas presents online ;)
But the people who deliver to my house never are quite the same. And that's sad, because I want them all to be as nice as my favorite Dan the UPS man ;)

Never had a UPS guy 'round here....but I thought that list was hilarious!

And I agree - the brown has GOT to go.

Hey everyone -- in case you missed the point of the rant -- it wasn't about UPS, but rather their freakin' stupid as shit ad campaign "BROWN" that makes me want to stick my fingers in my ears and scream "not listening to you...not listening to yooooooou" every damn time it comes on!

¤ ¤ credit: robyn | 03.23.02 at 12:55 PM | link--this ¤ ¤

And George Thourhogood (however you spell his stupid name) new commerical now? "Bad To The Brown"......oh someone shoot me please!!! ACK!

LOL You beat me to it! Ever since that damn new campaign came out, Brian and I have been saying, "Brown pisses off our dog."

Ted, that's Pauline's Supper Club you were talking about? Only one in Ponca. (Robyn's mom, I'm from Ponca also, currently in OKC)

UPS Rant: Our UPS guy busted our doorbell last Friday. Now we need to get someone out to fix it.

New Ad Campaign Rant: Why make an entire campaign around the color of poop. Makes no sense to me.
