      Postal Worker Retires After 44 Years Without Sick Day (ABC News)


    On Jan. 31, Deborah Ford will retire from the U.S. Postal Service after 44 years without using any of her sick days.
    Though her colleagues and the local media, including the Detroit Free Press, applaud her level of commitment, Ford, 64, doesn't see what the big deal is.
    Born and raised in Detroit, Ford will be retiring from her job in payroll and timekeeping management for the city's main post office.
    "I was trying to do the best I could, and that just evolved into working all my scheduled days," Ford said.
    Ford said when she was sick, she would simply "shake it off." For appointments, say, with the doctor, she would use vacation days.
    "It's going to be tough to replace her - not only her attendance but her knowledge of the years she has done timekeeping," said Tony Carnagie, a financial programs compliance manager, who has worked with Ford for more than 15 years.
