Kevin and Jen, we really aren't trying to make this difficult. We post the schedule on the website because it is used by a wide variety of people. There are Tweets sent that link to the schedule, just as our e-mail linked to the schedule. There will be banner ads on different sites linking there. We figure an e-mail doesn't have a long shelf life, so it should live on the website.

Kevin, I have to agree with you in regards to receiving an email with a link to another link with a PDF. Does UPS have to make everything so complicated?? The irony is that this is a logistics company; you would think sending a simple holiday schedule would be just that...simple!

So, you sent me an email which contained a link to your website which had another link to open a .pdf which gave me your holiday schedule. Did nobody consider that just including the schedule in the email would be MUCH easier for everyone?

I know... what a way to start the Holiday season... let's all just go home on Black Friday... the busiest shopping (and COULD be SHIPPING) day of the year.

The day after Thanksgiving ? Thanks a lot. Nothing like seeing half the center sent home and routes cut out to add to the holiday spirit. #scruge
