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?"
