Why do women like UPS drivers?

A few weeks ago, I shared an elevator with a UPS driver and a woman. As far as I could tell, we were all strangers to each other.
The UPS driver spoke of his Army background, how they taught him to make his bed so tightly that you could bounce a quarter on it.
The woman smiled at him and said, with a coquettish tone in her voice, “I have a bed at home you could bounce things on.”
The exchange had me wondering: Why do women think UPS drivers are so hawt? I can kind of understand the appeal of firemen. The job entails a high degree of physical courage and also has a heroic dimension absent from most white-collar office jobs. I can also understand why construction workers inspire some women to stare and drool; construction workers have an uber-manly image that is absent from the realm of the Sensitive New Age Guy.
But the UPS driver? This I don’t get. Some guy shows up in a brown polyester uniform, drops off a couple packages and says “Sign here, please.” Where’s the appeal in that?
Help me out, ladies. I’m confused. Why do women like UPS drivers?
