No really. I do. United Parcel Service is my most favorite company in all the world.
I call the UPS truck The Big Brown Truck of Joy because it's arrival never ever disappoints me.
Has anyone every really been less than happy to see a UPS truck arrive at your driveway? Unlike USPS they don't deliver junk mail & bills. I don't approach a UPS truck wondering what crap they are about to hand me now. I don't ignore the box on my porch because I know it's just bills & spurious 'you have already been approved' offers to refi my house. Anything legal that I'd rather not deal with but must be done immediately (like say, forms for last minute home owner's insurance renewal) comes by FedEx.
UPS only brings me things I *want* or surprises me with things I didn't know I was going get. It's the same thrill as getting birthday gifts even. It's the same feeling when UPS arrives unexpectedly bearing boxes addressed to me I know nothing about for no particular reason. Even when I know what is in the box because I myself placed that order 2 days ago at Amazon.com.
Perhaps I am just easily pleased but I'm always happy to see the UPS truck. When I pass it on my road I wonder if it might be stopping at my house. Unexpected deliveries make my day. When I am expecting things I am hard pressed not to turn around & follow it back home.
I've got my kids convinced that UPS drivers are Santa's elves in disguise, spreading joy & happiness by bringing people things they want & need.
UPS and I have had a relationship since we moved her in 1997. Back then, if it wasn't at Food Lion or WalMart, you had to order it online. I kept Amazon in business from 1997-2003 & UPS right along with them. I see less of them these days, which makes their visit all the more special.
The last deliveries arrived today & I missed them. I was going to give the driver some cookies as a present.
Merry Christmas UPS and I hope to do business with you in the coming year
