This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking for advice on what to do are not practical answerable questions (e.g. "what job should I take?", or "what skills should I learn?"). Questions should get answers explaining why and how to make a decision, not advice on what to do. For more information, click here." – AndreiROM, gnat, user52889, DJClayworth, Dawny33
Different industries have different expectations of their employees.
Generally, the lower the wage, the higher the turnover but also the lower the investment they make in recruiting. I'm not saying this is an excuse to blow off a job offer, but I am saying it will soften the blow.
A firm that is paying an employee for only two hours of work a day at barely above minimum wage is likely prepared for a high turnover rate. You probably feel worse about this than they do. Let them know immediately the simple fact that you will be unable to work the position so they can begin the hunt for their next employee.
Simply put, you can't pass up an offer that gives you 4x the money. I'm not sure anyone can.
Unless the times don't conflict, in which case consider working them both.
