A day in the life of a mail carrier
Peter Simpson is a mail carrier. He comes from a small town in Pennsylvania but now he lives and works in Chicago, a big city in the United States. Today, on World News Web, we ask Peter about his life and his job.
How do you start a normal working day , Peter?
Well, I get up at three thirty in the morning, I have breakfast and take a shower. I eat eggs and I always drink a lot of coffee before I start work. It’s dark outside and it isn’t easy to get up when it’s so early and so dark. Then I walk to the mail sorting center. It’s about 20 minutes from my house.
What do you do at the mail sorting center?
I work with ten other mail carriers. We work for four hours putting letters into bags. It isn’t difficult to do but we work very fast.
Then what do you do?
At about 8:30 ,I take my big bag of letters and walk outside. On a normal day, I deliver letters to 600 addresses.
Do you like your job?
Yes. Well, usually. I don’t like it when it rains. And I don’t like working on Saturday morning when everybody is in bed.
But I meet a lot of people. Old people are very friendly and I always talk to them. And after lunch I’m free. I don’t work in the afternoon, so I can go shopping or go biking when other people are at work. That’s great!
