    Just curious if there are any little people that work at ups, does anybody know. I wonder if a little person was to apply how would ups handle the situation?

    Yes, they are the ones that retape all the Zappos shoe boxes before preload gets in.

    How do you think package companies get those pesky belts moving. They're all too cheap to use electricity.

    I used to be 6'2", but UPS has ground me down to 5'8". I reckon I will be 5'4'' by retirement.

    I used to be 6'6'', now I'm 6'4''. Most people scoff at me when I tell this is, but its the truth. I've heard this from a few drivers as well.

    I've wondered this myself. I havent seen any at my work place, but now that your bringing this up, I'm sure ill see one walk by on the tour. I also, one day, was going to bring this question up here.

    I had heard about the possibility of UPS being forced to hire the deaf for driving positions a few years ago! Everybody shrinks over the years. My loss of height is mostly due to friction.

    Its not friction, its due to the impact to the spine from walking on unstable and hard surfaces. A simple fact, marathon runners will often shrink 1-2 inches after a long run. Its all about impact, and the sum of us whos job is to mostly walk is a huge portion upon impact type damage to the body. Over time its permanent damage, as you said.

    I work with a little person. We call him "Little Buddy" kinda like Gilligan from Gilligan's Island.
