Can you imagine going one year without using a sick day at your job? Now imagine not using a sick day for 44 years! Well, today Ms. Deborah Ford is retiring from the U.S. Postal Service after going 44 years without using any of her sick days.
The cutest thing is that Ms. Ford doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. According to ABC News Ford told reporters, “I was trying to do the best I could, and that just evolved into working all my scheduled days.”
She says when she was sick she would just “shake it off,” and for doctors appointments she would use vacation days.
They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore. You rarely see this kind of workplace commitment. Although, shaking it off doesn’t seem like the best method for recovery or keeping the rest of the office from getting sick, I respect the dedication.
Ford, who is 64 years old, will be retiring in her home town of Detroit from her job in payroll and timekeeping management for the city’s main post office. We congratulate her on her dedication to the US Postal Service and wish her well in retirement.
