Since he is not home yet for me to
Remember a bit ago, I mentioned that I was having to yell at my car because it was giving me fits? Well, it turned out the car needed a new battery (sheesh, you'd think those things would last forever as big as they are!)
Once the battery was installed and the car was up and running, it kept doing this funny little thing while idling. It kept acting like it wanted to stall. This went on for about a day or so. Hubby was concerned. I informed him that I was sure that the car and the battery just had to get to know each other. He laughed and laughed. The problem went away. But Hubby was still concerned, so when I scheduled my oil change I mentioned the problem to my guy and while I was at it gave him my diagnosis of the problem. Well! According to my guy I was completely correct. Apparently it takes a while for the battery to understand exactly what the car needs from it.
A couple of weeks ago, Hubby (well, really I) submitted a resume online to a uber-wonderful company as they were looking for someone with Hubby's skill set. We received an email confirmation. But we haven't heard a word. This company still has the posting up and I was getting nervous. I mean their job description practically matches Hubby's resume word for word. Why hadn't they at least called? If the position was filled, why was the posting still up? Yes, we'd received an email confirmation that the resume had been uploaded, etc. but something just did not feel right.
So I suggested to Hubby that we re-submit directly to the company via snail mail. He resisted. I have insisted. Because really, what would it hurt to follow up? He still resisted.
Today, I was talking this over with a friend of mine and telling her of my concerns. She informs me that she knows someone who works at this uber-wonderful company (unfortunately not in a position to help him actually get the job, but still) and offered to call her friend to see if the position is, in fact, still open.
Her friend turns out to be a wonderfully helpful person. She not only determines that the position is still open (yay) but that Hubby's resume has never been received! She has also suggested that I email the resume directly to her where she will hand deliver the resume to Human Resources. I've never met this woman, but already I love her.

Will he ever learn?
