...brown paper packages tied up with string, these are a few of my favourite things...
Who delivers these lovely packages? Of course, it's the UPS guy. When I say ‘the UPS guy’ I am also referring to the FedEx guy, the DHL guy and the Purolator guy. I do not, however, include bike messengers, packages delivered by taxi drivers (god, no!) or the much maligned mailman in this esteemed grouping of dishy distributors – for some reason, they don’t fit into this category of strangely sexy men. After all, when was the last time that a UPS guy went postal???
I’ve always wondered about the way that women become enthralled by the UPS guy. What is it about him? What makes him such a studly sex symbol?? What was it about the delivery guy in Legally Blonde that inspired Elle Woods to teach her esthetician the famous bend & snap seduction strategy??? I have considered this for a remarkably long time and have identified the following traits that most women probably find VERY attractive about the UPS guy:
* He visits regularly
* He doesn’t stay too long
* He’s always friendly
* He always brings something
* He has a car
* He can stick to a schedule
* His uniform is always clean and pressed
* He’ll read a map
