Postman Pat

Today, I got a callback for a job, asking for an interview. I got very excited but also anxious because it's my first job after graduating from uni. While I was on call scheduling the interview, I realised I'd accidentally applied to the Royal Post to be a mailman. Now I have to call again and explain. FML

I thought it was a decent job but turns out the median salary for a mail man is only $27,444. That means it pays less than fast food starting wages. For context a good job would generally pay about 3x that.

Yeah but with those wages your basically taking the Nights Watch oath

I would suggest that unless you actually have a better job now or a very good chance at a better job - To take the job if it is offered. You can always quit that job if a better opportunity comes your way. In the meantime you will have a steady income. You can keep looking for a better job, just don’t tell your employer or fellow employees about that.
