I don't think so. I think there's a place for everyone - a place they'd rather be. And to never feel like you can stay there sounds painful. If I had to leave this toilet for burb turds and move to the city, I think I'd hate my life. Either way, I'm sorry you have to go through that I can't imagine.

Yeah, you have to lie.

I know it sucks, but it has to be done. It's supposed to make sense that you get rewarded for your truthfulness but this is often not the case. It's good that you have a sense of honesty, though. It's sort of like how people are raised to like creativity but in actuality very few jobs (comparatively) embrace it or encourage it. It's always just 'follow the rules and obey the system' with everything, the opposite of creativity and free thought.


Exactly. Lie.

Companies don't want someone who moves around a lot because they appear fickle and unreliable. If they hire you, you could just end up quitting the week after. Where as if you've lived in the same place for many years, you seem stable and dependable.

Just don't slip up and bring up anything about what happened or where you were during that period you say you've lived where you're currently in residence. In other words, lock those memories in a vault, to be opened only after your first year on the job. At that point they'll overlook it in favor of their experiences with you as a worker, instead of seeing you as untrustworthy.
