then he told me how the day the lights went out and we couldnt work he was in the hub moving packages.
ups doesn't follow the rules why should i?
I once delivered to Richard Burgi when he was staying in Vancouver filming 'The Sentinel', now most noted for his part in Desperate Housewives. I've delivered to several hockey players on the Canucks team as well. I ran across James Avery (the father of 'Fresh Prince') in a hotel one time.
a few...phil rizzuto nice guy,daisy fuentes before she made it big..always got her to sign for her stuff and the neighbors stuff too . and bill bellamy who is a comedian.
I had a "Mike Jackson" come to the customer counter once... He was just some short old white guy though.
I saw a package for "tina turner" come through the clerking station once...
Mike Singletary (hall of fame linkbacker)
i met henry winkler (the fonz)..... his daughter went to college here, living @ one of the private residence halls on campus....took the pkg. up to the room, door was wide open, wife was right there, invited me in, daughter comes into the room wearing a towel, to get the goodies....his wife was very nice, saying that if I wanted to I could wait till he came back so he could sign the board......I declined and ended up running into him outside the bldg. he was glad to see UPS & wanted to thank us for a job well done, shook his hand, went on my way......also delivered to http://www.suzyfavorhamilton.com/........
Ray Bourque(nearly fell on his icy driveway as he stood there and watched) Jim Rice(refused to sign for his pkg,had his wife do it) Don Marcotte(former Boston Bruin) Adam Oates, John Bucyk, Terry O'Reilly
Met R Lee Emery (tv's MAIL CALL drill sargent) on board the USS Missouri in Hawaii last winter. This was after I retired but it was still fun. He even made my wife take 2 pictures of us to make sure one tured out.
I've got a few here.....the famous porn actress Vanessa Del Rio (lived in Brooklyn when I started at UPS), some NY Rangers--Mike Gartner, Darren Turcotte, Alexi Karpotsev, Alexi Kovalev, Joey Kocur, and former NY Met/NY Yankee Darryl Strawberry..........most of them were very friendly.
I met Dale Earnhart several years ago as he picked up his airplane from a refurbisher I used to deliver. I also met F. Lee Baily there.
Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is in Gainesville, Fl. Mr. Griffin owns a business here in town and is often seen there.
