So after 9 years as a Postie I’ve managed to score an opportunity for a change. After training I’ll become a mail officer working vampire hours at work. You know what, I’m looking forward to it.
One of the major reasons why I’ve been looking towards a change is simply the unbearable work load posties (especially in WA) have to experience. Staff shortages and the whole the mail must be delivered no matter the cost has led to what I think is a very dangerous work environment. No more will I’ll be subjected to “forced” overtime, no more being subjected to the image above when I dare to have a day or two off from work because I’m that sick.
And you know what, with a change in career I also get a pay boost too. How sick is that? Less stress, more money.
Now to actually fly back home as I’m still currently in London.
