Ive been working as a mail man for one and a half years now. Beeing a mail man has its pros and cons smile.gif

Pros:
You will be listening to ALOT of music from now on biggrin.gif
Beeing a mail man is all about walking from one door to another and climbing stairs. Walking is very good exercise for your body in whole, climbing stairs is great for your quads wink.gif
You'll be exposed to fresh air quite alot smile.gif

Cons:
Dogs quite obviously biggrin.gif
Sometimes walking for 6 hours can be really hard on the legs sad.gif
Rainy, windy, cold weather (bad weather in general)
When your hitting on a girl and she asks you where do you work, most of the girls wount be very impressed when you say "mail man" biggrin.gif But you have a girlfriend so thats not a problem for you wink.gif

Very cool comment there! smile.gif

I don't really have a problem with dogs, and I figure that after a while you get used to walking up and down stairs.

Bad weather in general..maeh... don't know what I'll think about that yet.

And yes, I geuss I could find a better job for when hitting on girls, but as you state, that is not needed smile.gif

Oh - news news.

I 100% got the job now.

Starting a course to become a mail man (why do you HAVE to do that?! Seems a fair easy job to me at least:P) on monday the 8th of September. That will take a week and then I will be ready to start. So this upcoming week is my last vacation.

Another good thing about the job - well... the working hours and days:

You work from 6:00 in the morning till about 1:24 or so. You work every other Saturday, and you can either choose to get paid in your paycheck for that or get every 10th week off. The latter would mean that you would get yourself 5 weeks off a year + the 5 ones that you get furthermore than that. So that's 10 weeks off a year. That's pretty aight, and I don't mind working on Saturdays, as you still have much off the day left to spend when you're that early. smile.gif

Wow. Those are very nice working conditions. I envy you mate. During school time I have to work from 3pm to ~5-7pm. Sucks really, because after that I usually hit the gym, after which I study and theres not much time left for the guitar sad.gif
