    Awesome story, love hearing stuff like this.

    But this line made me laugh "A play on how UPS drivers use their lights, horn, and signals to get people's attention."

    Gotta make sure we mention that.

    Nice story but smells too much like a PR move someone in an office thought up. No way the driver could do all that by himself.

    More likely the kid is related to someone in upper mgt.

    Orion inc. I like turtles

    Or maybe the driver is just a decent person who sees a kid in pain and wants to help

    A driver here does stuff like this...the media just doesnt report it.

    I still think this is a pr stunt

    Many if not most drivers do a lot of little things like that but not in the news. The media attention over this is what raises a flag for me.

    Cute story, horns lights and signals... yeah as i sit waiting for this letter box I had to turn my hazards off. The beeping was gonna make me go insane. I do ring door bells now though and I wrapped every package up!

    hellfire no one considers UPS people."real" Teamsters.-BUG

    At least get the kid something decent....also that driver needs to stop wasting time, he needs more stops obviously
  20. who broke your nice button? Don't give me a red x without considering the possible fact pattern that even though you believe this was a staged PR event wrought with pandering to the media, could you revisit the fact pattern and possible give lip service to the detail that the child is ill and any, quote any relief to that child is in fact an act of kindness whether orchestrated or not. I disagree with your RED X Mr. Hades Sparkler!@HELLFIRE
