Three year response

Tonight I got an email from Kevin Corbett. He wanted to know if I was available for work so he could hire me. Here is a copy of an email that I sent to Kevin:

Yes I'd be interested in being a part of the team. I attached a copy of my resume in word format for you to look over and I should be available for hire within a few weeks.

Please keep in mind that I wrote this email to him on Friday, July 07, 2000 2:58 AM. Note the year - 2000.

I got this email today:
James, Are you available?

It took him THREE YEARS to respond to me. I understand that corporations are slow and it takes some time for paperwork. I can see how it might take 3 hours, 3 days, 3 weeks, or even 3 months for him to get back to me. But 3 years? That is just insulting. It is as if I haven't worked or done anything for the last three years and I've just been sitting by my computer waiting for him to respond. I told him that I was available for $100,000/year. We'll see if I get a response in 2006.
