    what a heartwarming story, so good to hear about that very generous driver
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    We usually only see the top of their head or hear them talking. We have a 5ft tall gate across the driveway. They won't come through the gate when it's shut. Cause they know our dogs are out and about in the yard. They usually put our stuff in a plastic bag and hang it over the gate if we aren't home.

    My son isn't a UPS guy but he is a FED EX driver. He's a good young man. Ask me how I know! Loved this story! Excuse me while I go get some tissues. Most of these guys have a lot of stops to make. So let's try to be nice.

    Mine used to also but then I called the terminal and they put a note somewhere for the driver to wait at the door til I get there, use a walker and I am SLOW, so now they wait for me! (Fed Ex still drops and runs!) I think it's a shame they transferred Mr. Ernie to a different route! Should let him stay on that one with the little boy. That little truck is awesome!!

    There's something about a guy in uniform...especially when they're 3 feet tall. ***Be still my heart***

    There must be some requisition for the company to hire the cutest guys. Had a cute one deliver my JAF order from Thanksgiving the other day. I told him I would see him later since I have many more online orders coming and smiled. There was a UPS depot near my previous home and I learned to follow them home to learn the quickest ways home for me too.
