Jacqueline Moore talks about the impact of the postal service on her home life.
Jacqueline Moore: I have a daughter, who was at a crazy age and I had to work at nights so—but we sort of had an understanding (laughs). Um, she graduated from school the year I went into—high school—the year I went into the Post Office, in fact that was why I tried to get into the Post Office because I actually had a son and daughter both of them were coming out of high school at the same time [claps], and I said I had to get a better job so I went to-I went into the Postal Office a year before she graduated. I didn’t like not being home at night but, uh, we managed. But working at night, it-it’s not very good, especially if you don’t have anybody to really watch your children, but as I said she was a grown daughter, and I think I really needed to be home more with her when she was 16 (laughs) than I did when she was ten, you know, because I would’ve had somebody there, but we did okay, we did okay. But a lot of people I know had trouble, or, they would get their husbands, would work day so they could be home with the children at night, it’s not the easiest job in the world I have and have a family, but I also had the weekends off so I can be around with him when she wasn’t in school. But we did okay. I-I was very lucky, I’m one of the lucky ones. I’m one of the lucky ones. If you want a hardship story, I don’t have any to give to you—really.
