So one day when I stopped by the local post office and saw a big banner that read, “We’re Hiring,” I thought, hey, why not?

Being a Rural Carrier Associate (RCA) didn’t sound half bad to me. I remember thinking how great it would be to spend my days working outside in the Florida sun, a warm breeze ruffling my hair as I delivered the mail from home to rural home. Just me and my truck on a scenic country road.

Too bad for me, it wasn’t like that at all.
