FML - The follow-up
ironorr Say more :
I moved because my lease was ending, and my landlord decided to jack up my rent if I decided to renew. I could no longer afford the rent, so I moved back to the area where I grew up since rent is way cheaper being so far from a city. Also, I have a potential job opportunity in the spring in this area. There were many factors leading me to make the decision to move, and all signs were pointing to the aforementioned company never actually giving me a job. But you're right. I'm a horrible person, so I totally deserve to have unfortunate things happen to me.

I agree. If the job is really worth it, spending a bit more money on gas each week will not do much to your budget and savings. OR you can always commute if it isn't too hectic to do so.

I can't move back, because I can't afford to break the lease here. And I can't commute, because the job requires that I be on call for emergencies, and I would need to be at the facility within 30 minutes of being notified.

I'm sure he applied to more than one job. He was just focusing on this one for FML. OP, take the job. You're lucky. I've been unemployed for over a year and no luck on the job front at all. Commuting is better than nothing.

As a matter of fact, I applied to many many companies. This was simply the only one that was showing any promise. Every other company said out right that they were not hiring anyone. This one was at least willing to string me along.
