That’s what my coworkers gave me today, when I told them of my after-work plans.
I was making a trip over to my former employer’s to interview the consultant they are considering using to replace me as their emergency technical contact. Since they don’t have any IT people on staff, they needed me to meet with him and evaluate his technical skills.
Yes, this despite the fact that I haven’t worked there for 5 months now and have absolutely no vested interest in doing anything but finding someone quickly, so I don’t have to do it anymore! Now, were I an evil person, obviously I wouldn’t even care if he was qualified. On the other hand, if I recommend him and he turns out to be a complete joke, they’re just going to wind up calling me again to fix it, so maybe I do have an interest in making sure he’s good.
In the end though, none of it mattered, he’ll be more than fine for what they need and I think he’ll do a great job. Probably better than I did while working there full time. Soon they’ll all love him and forget who I was, and I’ll be perfectly fine with that!
