Ok this is funny

As most of you know my husband has accepted a new job in another state and has given his notice at work.

The other day his boss came in and asked if a guy Jeff used to work with could come over now and then to help them out after Jeff leaves. Jeff told him that the guy does not know anything about PLC's so he would not be able to help them. When Jeff did work with him the man told Jeff in his interview that he didn't know what to ask him because he didn't know anything about what Jeff does. He hired him because he felt Jeff could do what he said he could. And of course he can do what he says he can.

Later his boss asked him to take two days before he leaves and train two guys to do what he does. I cracked up. Apparently he either doesn't think Jeff does too much or that he can fit 20 years of training and skills into a two day training for two guys who don't necessarily even have the aptitude to do that kind of work.

I just emailed my sweet husband and told him that he if he gets started training those two guys this morning he should be done by noon. I haven't gotten a response yet. He he.

The past is history
The future is a mystery
Right now is a gift
That's why they call it the (present)

His boss surely didn't think that one through! LOL

In a way it was kind of insulting, at least to me. They fired the plant engineer and began giving my husband his duties but not a penny compensation. I am hoping they have an eye opening once Jeff leaves.
If they bring in outside help it will cost at least $95.00 an hour. But big companies never seem to have any sense.
