UPS Air Cargo Mechanics Jokes

Remember it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high
school diploma to fix one; a reassurance to those of us who fly
routinely in our jobs. After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form,
called a ‘gripe sheet,’ which tells mechanics about problems with the
aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs
on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next
flight.
