UPS Only Ships Dead People

UPS Truck

April 26, 2014– Dear Secret Diary, I recently went into a UPS store and asked, “What would it cost to ship my teenager to some place he can’t get back from?”  I thought this was a fair question.

The fellow helping me stared at me and said without any evident emotion, “Is he dead or alive?”

I responded, “He’s alive.”

“Well, we only ship dead people.”

Diary, I’m not sure I understand this policy.  Seems  like UPS is missing out on a ton of potential business.
