Humorous Wedding Speech: Men And Women Of The United Postal Service

Improved Essays
Hello everyone! Thank you for being able to attend this awards ceremony dedicated to the men and women of the United Postal Service. This past year in 2020, we have seen many great achievements that the company and its workers should be very proud of. Right now, however, I am holding an award for someone who is actually near and dear to my heart. Most of you know him by either his last name, “Pyron” or his trucker handle “Python.” To me, he is “Dad.” Thirty-five years ago my Dad started working in this company as a package sorter. Throughout the years, he has progressed to being a package car driver, and then ultimately became the feeder driver that he is today. My Dad has put his heart and soul into helping this company become the well-oiled machine that it is …show more content…
I know in my heart that my Dad loves his job he enjoys being out on the open road and raising cane on these roads alongside his fellow feeder drivers. UPS even gave my Dad something outside of just work and friends, it was also a family. Thirty-one years ago while on a random package run to a business in downtown Memphis, my Dad meet my Mom, and long story short they ended up getting married, having two children, and even just celebrated their thirtieth wedding anniversary. It is not just my Dad who is grateful, it is also UPS. UPS is also grateful to my Dad, not only because of the time that he has worked here, but the hard work and energy that he has put into the company ever since he started when he was just nineteen years old. They hope that everyone here today will take some of that hard working mindset with them home today so that we can strive to make UPS better than what it is today. Without further ado, it is my great honor and privilege to present my Dad, Mr. Gregory Pyron, his award for thirty-five years of dedicated service to the United Postal
