    I met and worked with my future wife( in the business my full time job is still in) then she left and went to work @ UPS, we got married and she left big brown after our second child was born to be a stay at home mom.Fast forward 15 years money got tite the Stew man went to work on the twi as a second job. Been here 14 years. Wifey is still friends with a lot of (brown) office people.
    PS Our three children have all been employed by UPS( international,preload ,and twi) at one time or another. The baby is a full time college student and is in his 4th year working the sort aisle. The two older ones have gone on to better jobs.
    I actually wanted to be a driver at one time but when we first got married UPS had a rule on not hiring relatives.My daughter and her husband are police officers in adjoining towns.

  13. Getting married at work is pretty dumb. At least you were both in the same place at the same time. Was the reception in the break room? Catered via machines?
