Is this a respectable adult job?

I recently started a paper route. I was told this was not a respectable job for an adult to have. I am confused. Isn't a job better than no job? Why are some jobs OK and other jobs are not acceptable? Someone has to do it :)

It's a job!  I don't think they let kids do that anymore.

Who cares what other people think? A job is a job. All the people with paper routes here have to be adults.

It's a job. I respect that lol. I don't care what you do. My former assistant was a 'paperboy' for three years, and worked 4a-7a and occasionally 7p-7a. He had plenty of time for his family and could provide.

My parents had one for a while. I use to have fun helping them out with it.

Shoot, I wouldn't lol. The job starts at 2 am hehe.

But really, this is perfect for me with my disabilitie's limits. I can also use some "quirks" of my disability as an advantage. ;)

That's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. An adult who works to provide for themselves and family deserves respect. Idgaf if you work at Taco Bell!

Do you deliver the papers with your clothes on? Then it is a "respectable" job. If you were delivering them naked-then NO it would NOT be a "respectable" job IMO.
