My mom recently retired and for her last two weeks she was asked to train her replacement. I've always thought this was an odd idea. Sure, it works in theory; the employer is more or less confident that you won't be slacking off, and they get a worker who's ready to go when you leave.
I'm betting it doesn't work that well in practice.
In any case it gave me lots of ideas where I could have characters training their replacements: old boyfriends, wildlife and the newly fired employee in the cartoon above.
