Woman Retires After 44 Years Without a Sick Day
Deborah Ford really takes that whole “neither rain nor hail” mantra seriously.
The Detroit woman retired last week after 44 years with the United States Postal Service and never taking a sick day during her entire time on the job.
For her efforts, Ford was honored with a luncheon in her honor where co-workers and superiors gushed over her tenure. Chuck Howe, who oversees postal service employees in Detroit, gave her a proclamation “enabling you to retire with a sick-leave balance of 4,508 hours.”
As for how Ford managed never to take a sick day, she succinctly said, “I wasn’t sick.” And her secret? “I have no secrets. But a positive attitude helps.”
That’s a pretty impressive immune system she’s sporting, especially in this brutal flu season.
