Detroit Postal Worker Retires After 44 Years…With NO SICK DAYS! (Video)

Deborah Ford retires from the U.S. Postal Service without calling in sick for 44 years.

It’s cold outside isn’t it?  I mean, it’s brutally cold in some places in the northern region of the U.S.  And it’s a no-brainer that a lot of you will be calling in slick…I mean, sick!

But not Deborah Ford!  Not just because she is retiring from the U.S. Postal Service, but because she doesn’t believe in that.  After 44 years working as attendance control technician at Detroit’s main post office, she has never once called in sick.

When asked by a reporter from Detroit’s local NBC affiliate WDIV, why she never called in sick, she answered:

“I wasn’t sick…well, a minor illness here and there, but you shake it off!

“Your mother told you, you’ll feel better when you get there!”

Chuck Howe is the USPS Detroit district manager who oversees more than 13,000 employees in metro Detroit and the eastern half of Michigan who has been with the company “only 32 years” and he said he has never seen anything like it.

“I’ve never seen that accomplished among all of our employees.”

Ford will get a five percent raise to her pension for her 4,508 hours.  That’s a lot of work, sista! BRAVO TO DEBORAH FORD!

Check out the report.

  1. When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service? Thank you!

  2. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I do think that you need to write more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t discuss these issues. To the next! Cheers!!
