These videos are a dime a dozen. Usually they come around the holidays when deliver drivers are all taxed and extra miserable. Everyone gets super upset and can't believe how this could happen. The driver usually gets fired or suspended. I used to agree with all that but not anymore and here's why.
I am a mailman now.
My buddy called me up and asked if I wanted to make some money on the side. Of course. I love money. I don't have any of it. Need more of it. I said, yes, absolutely. Now I was thinking it was going to be along the lines of something I do. He's a real estate agent so maybe he needed me to take videos of houses. Maybe a promo video of him. Who knows.
Well, after saying yes to anything I found out he needed me to deliver his flyer to houses. Not what I expected but not too bad. Walk around, listen to the Yankee game. Bang it all out in a couple hours.
I get in my car and head to the neighborhood and that's when I start doing the math. He said it took him 2 minutes per house. I had to go to 500 houses. I get out my calculator and punch in the digits. That's sixteen hours! SIXTEEN!
For the past week and a half I have been delivering papers after my nine to five ends. I've got two jobs now. Video Editor and Mailman. Still can't believe it.
Now if this wasn't for a friend of mine who is paying me generously and who I want to succeed in life I would one hundred percent just ride my bike down the sidewalk and drop the paper at the foot of every driveway. So I don't blame these mailmen at all any more. It's so tedious to walk up to every door. In the neighborhood I am working all the mailboxes are attached to the house right by the front door. As I walk up I can usually hear the people inside the house cooking dinner and talking. It's like a driveway intruder but way more personal. Dogs are always barking. Cats are sometimes just chilling at the front door and I'm terrified of cats. Door to door delivery life is zero fun.
P.S. The mailman in this video has to be late for a women. Mom, wife, daughter, or girlfriend because he is BOOKING it. Doesn't even shut the door. Thats a dude who's seen the wrath of being late before.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
