I've got a brand spankin' new trainee this week. TPTB expect her to be halfway up to speed when they set said trainee solo next week. This is an impossibility given that 1) trainee has never done this type of work before, and 2) comparing her to me with 25+ years' experience is extremely unfair IMO. I told trainee re #2 that I'm not expecting miracles because it's all new, and yes, I thank god you're a quick learner compared to others I've trained, but that doesn't mean you're the new savior.

My manager and assistant have taken a hands-off approach other than to ask trainee how everything's going. On the one hand it says a lot about their trust in me. OTOH it also says a lot about passing off tasks neither of them want to do.
