I’ve been training my replacement at work for the past 4 days. This is a fun time for me because now I just sit here and tell her to look at the dummy proof reference guide I’ve been working on for the past 4 months. Essentially I just sit here and give her things to do. This is also great for blogging because now I pretty much do nothing but think of random shit to blog about. Unfortunately, training the new person also means I’m not allowed to have my phone out, and therefore can’t type it all up.
…until I type it up on Word on my computer on the D.L. This is beneficial in more than one way.
- Spell Check
- I can type it out on a computer, which sucks less than on the phone
- It makes it look like I’m working, which is a win/win all day every day.
But any who. Today while telling yet another one of our patients that I would no longer be here after May and having to answer to their disgruntled response, as if I had murdered their granny with a hammer. I’ve decided to take a new approach. I appreciate their responses, as much as I don’t want to have to explain everything thirteen times a day, it’s nice to know that I’ve made an impression on them and they appreciate seeing me when they come in. I wasn’t even going to tell any of them to be honest. I was just going to leave things as they are and if people asked who the new person was I would tell them. Moni-caw-caw-caw-caw was not on board with this plan. Understandably so, I guess. That kind of shifts the responsibilities to her after I leave.
But today, I’ve decided that instead of having to tell the patients that I’m leaving and having to listen to them, now I’ve decided to tell the patients that,
“Dr Boss Lady is firing me and making me train my replacement to boot. If that’s not a kick in the face, I don’t know what is!”
Because then it also becomes funnier for me because I’m sure they will give her an earful when she goes in the room to see them. She brought it on herself, really. Yesterday she was saying that she was going to tell people the same thing, the reasoning behind it being that I stole a computer. I’m just keeping it going…
I told one of the patients. While passing Dr Boss Lady’s office said,
“Why are you getting rid of Becky?!”
To which she replied,
“Because she’s not a good person sometimes…”
Touché Dr Boss Lady, touché.
10points to gryffindor for you!
