So my boss tells my colleague, Frank, to ask me what my transition plan is.
That is, what have I done to arrange for other people to take over my work once I am gone.
You know, the work that is so insignificant that my job doesn’t need to exist.
Deconstructed, this means that I am supposed to identify the persons to do my work.
Tell them they are now in charge of it. (Because I have so much power now that I am a lame duck.)
I’ll get right on it.
The end of the line
