Stress Test

Wow, things are ramping up like crazy at work…

A good work buddy of mine who’s been here the entire time I’ve been employed gave his two weeks yesterday. Thing is, this guy is the only one in the building who does what he does. This means that another co-worker and myself are spending the next two weeks intensely trying to get a handle on the exiting co-worker’s daily duties…on top of our existing project work and regular tasks.

After he leaves, of course, it won’t be much easier. It would take a year for this fella to divest all of his technical and institutional knowledge to us, so I anticipate the first few months after his departure to be full of stressful attempts to accomplish the day-to-day in addition to fixing anything that breaks.

I’m bracing myself…
