I cannot believe that Season 5 is going to start so soon! When I heard that it was being aired Friday, I was like, really? On one hand, it seems like Season 4 just ended especially since I can rewatch all the episodes on DVD now! On the other hand, its like it hasn’t been enough time.
In Episode 18 of Season 4, Sarah starts worrying that they are being replaced by Casey’s highly efficient team. Chuck isn’t worried though. He thinks because he has the Intersect in his brain, he is irreplaceable. This is just another example of how Chuck is growing up. He knows his worth in the world now and he finally has some self esteem.
I wish I had that kind of self esteem at work. I always feel that I could be replaced any minute. I know it took ages for them to hire someone to cover for me during my maternity leave but that doesn’t mean anything. I wish I could be like Chuck and just say, hey, I am irreplaceable pal so stop trying. The person they got to cover for me has several tech degrees which I don’t have. We work for a software firm so you can see how I would think I could be outdated. In the end though, I am still here. I just make sure that even if I am not as knowledgeable about some things, I still know as much as I can about others.
How about you? Have you ever felt like you could be replaced at work or a situation like that? How did you handle it?
