“Each man must wear out at least one pair of Fool Shoes.”- Charlie Chan. After all the stuff I did in life, it would have been best to have just kept applying at the Post Office, until I got hired! Instead I drove over the road, worked at AT&T in the IT industry, did this and that.
The simple job of the postal workers looks appealing right now. It is NOT an easy job. They must walk and walk and walk. But it pays really good, compared to many jobs that are supposed to be.. high tech, cool, etc. The most I ever made driving a semi truck was $41,000 a year. This was GONE from home all the time, and pretty much 70 hours a week, sitting in front of a steering wheel smoking, then a couple hours of frantic, heavy exercise, and starchy truck stop food.
How I love my nerd gadgets and computers.. but the IT industry just went south, I guess. Love the computers, but boy, I do not see how I am can make a coin drop with them.
I see people in Northeast living very exciting lives. They are in and out of jail, use drugs until they practically drop. They use them until it drives them clean into the gutter.
We are offered an apple, but choose instead the poison.
