DP Daily Post: The Road Less Travelled Post By Ranu

I got a job in a Residential Model School forty miles from Rawalpindi. When I applied for the job,I was not sure I will get it. I was the first one called for the interview. There were five or six other candidates,who applied for the same  job. In the interview the Head Mistress of the school,showed a lot of interest. She told me about the school,she said she would like me to take the job.

The problem I faced then was the distance. The school was too far away.I did not give my word and asked her to let me think.I consulted my older sister. She did not think it was a good idea.I informed the Head Mistress of my problem. She took it well.The following year she wrote and offered me the job again. This time I told her it was not possible for me to live that far from home.

If I had taken the job,I do not think I would continue more than six months. I would be homesick,and would be a nuisance for the staff.I am glad I made that decision,or else I would be a very unhappy person!

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this story. I too have made some decisions in life based upon just this criteria of physical distance. Fortunately, for some of the most important areas of life, physical distance is not a concern.

    All good wishes,

    robert
