    If I dreaded coming to work even before the previous workweek was over, I'd find another occupation.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    Like every other person here. It's a job. A means to an end. If you look at it as nothing more it ain't so bad.

    Isn't that why we are all here? Some people tend to forget that you can actually do something you love and get paid to do it, and there's nothing wrong with that. The point I was making is having that feeling of dread for 20+ years hating what you do, sheesh, I couldn't imagine.

    Not really just any other day one stop at a time. Might make a little extra $$ do to stop count but by no means will it suck. At $33.66 hr straight time and $50.49 OT they can't make my day hard or long enough to make it suck.

    There's a massive amount of people that do s**t jobs with little hope in their lives. There's people in the US (not even talking about the billions of poor around the world) that clean toilets for 1/5th the total compensation we get to drive around and carry cardboard.

    Our jobs are a lot of work but WELL worth it. It's why none of us would ever quit (unless forced from injury or retire). If we ask ourselves, what's the alternative? It comes down to winning the lottery or marrying a rich wife. The harder option, spending $100K for a high demand degree and just hope to land a job. Then wait more years for raises to build up to UPS money.

    OR, go with and easy job and live the rest of your life stressed about bills and not being able to afford to do anything other than watch TV.

  18. You suck!! For some reason, he won't play in my city. He hasn't scheduled a stop here since the mid 80's and he cancelled that one. I had to get a refund for my ticket. Enjoy!

    What if you don't have a TV and most everything you do requires little to no money? :D

    As another poster pointed out,this job is great when you stop letting it stress you out. I drive around and give people stuff,kinda like santa and I made 84k last year.
