Should I join the Air Force or stick with UPS?

Im 20yo guy and Im having trouble deciding if I should join the Air Force or stick with my job at UPS. I initially wanted to work for UPS to become a driver but Im starting to become more and more bored with surroundings(work, school, friends ect) and im thinking of joining the air force. I can be a driver at UPS when I turn 21 and by the time im 23 I will be making around $75,000 just to deliver packages(easy but bland). On the other hand I could join the AF and see the world but Im worried when I get out, I will have nothing to fall back on and dont want to waste 4 yrs of my life and end up where I started, with exception of a little bit of traveling and maybe some lifelong friends. Plus the jobs Im interested in are basically dead end in the civilian world(aircraft mehanic) and security forces which would leave me sitting on my ass 12hrs a day. What would you do?

Wasting your life? No way. UPS would be wasting your life. Joining the Air Force gives you travel experiences, free college education, and good thing to put on your resume. Air Force is very technical, you work with a variety of computers/electronics, therefore that gives you another option upon getting out. If you're... More
