A postal worker retires after going 44 years without a sick day. Working at the postal service is no easy feat. One woman,64-year-old Deborah Ford recently retired after 44 consecutive years of faithful service, performing clerical work at Detroit's main post office. If that’s not amazing enough, she never once took a sick day. If she had a doctor’s appointment, she would use her vacation time. If Ford felt terrible, she would still clock in. At her surprise luncheon, it was declared that she had a sick-leave balance of 4,508 hours which means she will receive a 5% increase in her pension. Although Ford says she will miss her co-workers, she plans to get some well-deserved rest in her free time. In 2010, another postal worker, Chester Reed from California finally retired at age 95. Over the course of his 37-year long career, the dedicated man never once took a sick day.He worked as a mail handler and forklift operator since he was hired in 1973. His manager claimed that Reed would constantly have to be forced to go home. He accrued a total of 3,856 hours of sick time.
