Have You Ever Met Your Replacement?


In last night's episode of The Office Michael faces the repercussions of giving his two weeks notice. Namely, realizing other local paper suppliers have shut down, the job market is terrible, he has no idea what websites to use to look for listings and no concept of what it takes to start his own company.

At the very beginning of the episode, Michael chit chats with a man applying for his job, which reminded me how awkward it is to meet the person who is hired to fill your shoes. I had the fortune of leaving my last job on a good note and actually spent a week training the new hire, but there was something uncomfortable about passing a job I had decided to move on from to another person. Have you ever met the person who took your position?
