Career opportunity, the ones that never knock (twice)

Career opportunities are the ones that never knock
Every job they offer you is to keep you out the dock
Career opportunity, the ones that never knock – The Clash

Isn’t “career” opportunity a little rich for motorcycle postie? I would have gone “job” opportunity myself, unless you are looking for a career path that climaxes with a motorcycle leap over 40 buses. Speaking of buses, this reminds me of the sign you see on some of them, “Can you see yourself driving this bus?”. Which means “Can you see yourself covered with your blood and someone else’s saliva?”

    Famous posties? William Faulkner comes first to mind:

    “Through a provision by the government permitting all veterans to attend college, Faulkner entered The University of Mississippi. However, he eventually dropped out and took a job in the university mailroom. He quickly developed a reputation as an irresponsible postman and a drunk about town. “

    I thought my 8 out of 10 was quite good (without a Faulker question!) but the verdict was “OK, but not brilliant”

    Probably advertising to take over from my local postie biker wannabee who regularly loses his licence and needs 3mths off, lol.

    Oz Post is having to advertise repeatedly for motorcycle posties because there is a weight restriction – if you are over 100 kilos, the bike canna take it.

    I am reliably informed by A Current Affront’s ‘reporting’ on the obesity epidemic that there is a ‘fat bomb waiting to explode’, so I guess people under the 100 are becoming harder to find.
