    I always took MLK Day off and I can't remember if UPS works on this Holy day!

    Martin was one of my boyhood heroes ... Jimi Hendrix and Hank Aaron were the other two.
    Martin and Jimi were taken way too early for me to meet them personally but one of my favorite memories was getting to meet Hank while playing tennis some 20-30 years ago.
    He was definitely a good athlete with quick hand-eye coordination.

    The cartoon illustrations of different positions is hotter than the actual product.

    One of MLK's cousins was a manager at UPS. I worked with him some of the time. He was a preacher like his cousin and would usually attend events on MLK day.

    Normal day here. You wouldn't even know it's a holiday. Only government hacks are off.

    Working here.... in all due respect to MLK, its too early in the year to start burning days.

    Working here too. Always thought it was odd that MLK's birthday is in January, yet February is black history month.....

    No, thank God. I’d never hear the end of it. Lol. Imagine trying to deliver that with a straight face.

    Don't feel guilty. Would MLK want people staying home just because it's his birthday?

    You are not the least bit concerned that she might really want tacos?
