Top Ten Things I've Learned While Employed By UPS...

10. I never used to notice when people didn't shovel their walkway.

9. Some people are friendly and some people are not friendly. I prefer the former. (you know who you are Mr. Custodian at Bingham High School).

8. I have an extremely unhealthy relationship with Maverik. For example, Shawn loves this one item that is one extremely huge and thick hot dog wrapped in a croussant. I can't take more than one bite and feel good about myself.

7. I am not a whiner.

6. What I can accomplish and what I think I can accomplish are too very different things. I can do hard things!

5. You can get a whiff of someone's house, without them opening the door.

4. I've discovered three more "faces" of Shawn:
Work Shawn: Fun guy.
Wednesday Shawn: (the busiest day of the week at UPS): Not-so-fun guy.
Christmas Shawn: (Wednesday Shawn x10)

(you can't blame the guy, 250 stops in one day!!!)

3. I still do, and always will have, chivalry in my marriage (nothing over 20lb!)

2. My husband works very hard for our family. I truly appreciate that now. Hope this makes up for #4! You know I love you!

1. I used to love the color brown.

p.s. Number of times I've bit the dust: 3
Number of times Shawn witnessed said falls: 0

What a great experience.
Just what you needed on your resume for life.

Do the homes smell good? Like cinnamon pinecones and gingerbread...if not...don't tell me.

The Curtis Family said...

So fun. I am really impressed with your spunk. Merry Christmas!


Sue said...

You are too funny! I can't wait to see you again...I finally saw Twilight.

Shill and Company said...

Wow, I never realized that you can smell peoples homes without the door even being opened. Very interesting tidbit.

Rachel said...

I was thinking about you the other day when a packaged arrived. You really are my hero! I hope I am always a home that smells good and has the walks cleared for visitors, especially ones bringing gifts and care packages.
