So you know how this is my last week, and how Thursday is my last day and I plan on leaving at around 2 p.m. to go and begin enjoying my long weekend before I start my new job?
Well first there’s the fact that tonight and/or Wednesday I’ll have to stay late to do software testing for two admin candidates – most likely not getting out of here until 7 p.m. since most candidates take FOREVER on the test that I give.
Then there’s the fact that two bankers just came to me with a new corporate brochure that they want done FINAL before I leave on Thursday. You know, as a swan song (said one particularly smarmy banker). And a deadline of this Thursday makes absolutely sense since the last brochure only took TWO WEEKS to make final before it went to the printer.
I was really nasty when I took the draft from the bankers. I don’t feel guilty about that. I just think it’s ridiculous to throw tons of work at me just because you fear it won’t get done once I leave. In my opinion, this is the perfect opportunity to have the person taking over this task learn how to do it while I’m here as opposed to three months from now when a new brochure comes along and I’m not around to advise her or answer questions.
