Three indications of lame duck hood

Lame duck hood. That weird twilight zone area between leaving a job and taking up a new one.

I'm experiencing it again.

How do I know this?

1 A student approaches me, smiling, holding a piece of paper and says, "Are you still authorised to sign this?"

2 The shadowing interim Principal is mentioned to me as, The Boss.

3 A staff member asks me a question but after I pause a fraction too long, says, "You've already left, haven't you?"
