OR, nothing is cooking here, especially after being told to pay his dues until the job opened up and then being passed over when it did.
It's a law of business that once you've been passed over the odds of you getting the job you want go down precipitously because for Top Management to pick you later on, they would have to admit they were wrong in the first place. And Top Management doesn't like to admit it was wrong, ever.
