haha, I feel you there. I’m trying to manage a few things before I go leave the same time you do. People are surprised that I’m still at work right now. My workload got a bit easier now that I’m not backing up someone, so I can focus a few things.

@abbyful:  Uh oh!  That is frustrating.

I hope this doesn’t happen to me.  I have SIX MONTHS to wrap things up, so I’m hoping it will be ok.

Any way to let a supervisor know about the inundation so it can be delegated slowly to the replacement person? That way these issues aren’t a complete surprise to the new person when you’re totally out of there.

@abbyful:  oh no! I would do what you can but definitely don’t stress yourself out.

My boss made me start writing out all my processes because no one else does my job and he barely knows what I even do haha. They are going to be in for it when i’m gone.

Sorry! I’m sure you are under enough stress already. Do you know who will be filling in for you? If you do I would inform these people that since their issue is not an emergency you will pass it off to X?
