thanks ladies, many southern/midwestern women have been using that anectedote for decades, and come to find out, Betty White made it famous... typical..
I am very proud that you all have not given up in the job search. My SO hasn't had work in a very long time, due to our relocation, and especially where we are. NM is not exactly the job capital/high tech area of the country.. It's almost 3rd world, actually.
I almost lost patience with him after a couple of months and was ready to "get rid of the guy" because he doesn't have a job, but he's really looking-plus, he's "monied" from his "early re-tirement". High end executives take a lot longer to get a job in their field because of the "exclusivity"..
I've seen those NOTICES potential employers have sent him, and yeah..ZILCH.
And congrats on your hubby finding a job, MissAfro. Clear are always impressed at blacks with leadership skills.. But make sure he watches his back.. Trust me, and you know this as well, clear folks are usually impressed with ANY leader, but there are always those jealous ones that try to "bring him down to size"..
they will do it in a heartbeat with their own, and will not hesitate with a minority. As long as folks are on the same level, everyone's "cool", but let someone clearly take those reigns, and watch the competition for the ALPHA DOG begin...
tale as old as time..
