And, of course, if he dies that would make me the department manager, seeing as I'm the only other full-time employee. That's probably not a joke.
But the really funny thing is what he said to me the other day.
"One day soon I will die, and you will become the fish department manager in my place, just as I did when the last manager died. Your first duty as manager will be to roll my corpse in newspaper and drag it out to the dumpster."
