My Unemployed Life: Is It Crazy To Turn Down A Job Interview?

Am I crazy? I get the feeling that some people think that I am.

I was called for a job interview. I turned it down.

The job was located in downtown New York City, near the new World Trade Center. I was aware of this when I applied for it; but a woman I know at the company told me that they'd been allowing more telecommuting there. This gave me hope -- actually, in hindsight, I think I deluded myself into believing -- that if they wanted me, then of course they'd simply permit me to work from home.
