Dh has two interviews this afternoon and they're in unfamiliar parts of our metropolitan area, so I volunteered to go with him and help him with directions. Never mind he spent 10 years in the navy traveling the world. He can't get around anywhere unfamiliar on his own. After 8 years he still can't find my dad's house. So, I get to sit in the car all afternoon and wait for him because I know he wouldn't follow the mapquest directions. I made him do a practice drive the last time he had to go to an unfamiliar area. Okay, vent over...until next time!confused

I know how that goes. Bring a good book and your cell that should help. Also water and a snack.

Boy are you smart! AND patient, lol ! He's blessed to have you. Look at it this way: Would you rather have spent that time sitting and waiting for him, while reading etc., or have spent that time driving to the next state to retrieve him because he took a wrong turn ? hahahahaha.....

 LOL! I spent 20 years in the navy and I have managed to learn in many different languages how to ask for directions.

He really loved the company he interviewed with, but was not a good fit for the specific job. He has 18 years in manufacturing/high tech, but they were looking for someone with more experience with electrical. He has none. The man who interviewed him told him of other positions that would be a better fit, so he's going to contact the HR dept. on Monday.
