Today, I was let go at work. About 2 years ago, we had hired an eager-to-learn "assistant" for me. When they canned me, they let me know that I should've trained him faster so I could've been fired sooner. FML

Do you really think that they intended to let you go, but had to wait for two years, because nobody else could possibly do your job as good as you?

Don't worry, OP! You'll train 'em faster next time!

You should have “trained” him wrong and have him fired for incompetence and insubordination. Job security is #1.

God OP, always "me, me, me".. Think about the well being of the company for once in your life!

Sorry to be harsh, but I get the feeling they were only being nice to keep you on for those 2 years. Maybe it's time for some self reflection.

Thing is, if OP was horrible or doing the job wrong, why did they let him train his eventual replacement?

Maybe it's not their work, but their attitude?
