A great many things would be easier if it didn't hurt to drive, not least my job search. It's not that I can't drive. When I could get to work at the same time when
I left home at 5:20 and paid the MBTA $13.50
or left home at 6:30 and paying some gas station about $5
it occasionally seemed like a good idea to trade joint pain for being able to sleep later, or being able to stop at the store and bring heavy stuff home, or being able to stay dry in the pouring rain. I could do that sort of thing.

And yet. A recruiter called this morning to tell me about an amazing job in Nashua. (The pay is so remarkable the company probably wants somebody more experienced. But we'll get to that later.) The recruiter looked at a map and saw how far my apartment is from Nashua. He said, "It's only about 15 miles further north than the last place you worked, and this is really a great opportunity." It's not the extra 15 miles that scares me. It's the prospect of driving every day. I hate this. I hate being afraid to drive, and being afraid to tell potential employers why I don't want to drive. (At my last job, they thought I liked to walk, and was making an environmentalist statement with my commuting choices as much as I could.)
