By gzt (Tue Jul 31, 2012 at 06:42:54 PM EST) gzt, squats, router, stuff, things (all tags) boss hasn't yet gotten permission to replace me. but we have found somebody in the company who's excited and interested in the gig, seems bright, so that's cool. but no word on whether they'll be allowed to do so.

Even though it's work, I'm gone soon, so I'll post it in public.

the chief something or other officer wants bodies to fill certain other jorbs. but my team is me and my boss, that's it. and we're already swamped trying to get done what people want done. of course, that's partly because i don't give a shit. anyway, it's been a week since i gave notice, i thought they'd have the job posted by now. i worry about my boss if they don't replace me - she already sacrificed one position when the other person on the team retired, but that was kind of in exchange for ditching a body of work we didn't want anymore. but they've decided for sure what work they want to get done, and that work is more than one person can do. the team they would try to pull additional resources off to support without hiring another person is already understaffed and overworked, so I don't know what other options they have. my boss also doesn't exactly have some of the technical skills necessary to produce the work.

In other news, I had two ham sandwiches for lunch today.

The roommate had a router just lying around, so we're using that one until we leave. I ordered a new router and it should arrive tomorrow. Coincidentally, it's teh same model as the roommate's router. The old router got bricked while trying to fix, but it was dead anyway.

I set up utilities to start at the new apartment. Woo. I haven't set up garbage service yet, I'll ask the neighbors when I get there about it.

I have finals, my final is due Aug 3rd.

Picking up heavy things, putting them down still. Yesterday squatted 370x3x5. It was rough, but not terrible. I might be only about 60# off my all time best 1RM.

the problem with not replacing you: not your problem anymore.

Just say sweet nothings to your boss and you'll be fine.

It's merely academic. I'm just curious. It's like a soap opera, you know? I also know that if stuff sucks, my boss will just go somewhere else (or maybe one of the roles they'd cannibalize my role for), so I'm not worried for her.

but, yeah, that's all in a "not my problem" field. if I were really worrying, I'd be worrying about one of the projects that I'd be getting rid of even if I were still on the jorb - the people I'm transitioning it to are either not skilled appropriately or are trying successfully to get off the project. but this is supremely Not My Problem even if I were still around.

if I'm not being replaced, I have to thoroughly train my boss on a few things before I leave. if I am being replaced, I can just document a few of the processes lightly and anybody hired would have the technical competence to do it all.
