Mine gave notice the Friday prior to my first day and worked there only one week when I did. It is a complete ****show. Someone else gave notice not long after. Not an opportunity of any sort except to work around the clock.

Mine took a voluntary demotion a few months after I was hired. I ended up getting the promotion and our roles were reversed. That worked out well for me. Hopefully your replacement will be an improvement but I wouldn’t read too much into it. A lot of good people are getting poached away for more money elsewhere lately. I lost my best worker to a 40% pay increase that we couldn’t come close to matching.

It would not bother me. Managers are not indentured servants, and have the ability to move to other jobs.

Well if he...quit on me...I'd call 911. I'm assuming he quit breathing?

But if the chap resigned his position . One of two things would run thru my mind....how bad is this place I'm working for? Or hey! Maybe he won the lottery and can now do as he pleases

I would feel curious/questioning and observe everybody and listen carefully about what's going on in the company.

This. There are dozens of reasons people resign and many of them are completely benign. Could be a sideways compliment...they had been planning to leave for quite a while, but waited until a new competent person was hired before doing so.

TBH, what bothers me more is a supervisor/direct line manager who decides to take a long vacation right after I start the job, leaving me floundering. When they return, all refreshed, chipper or energized they take me to task about the attempts I made to keep things moving. Inevitably they were the wrong attempts.
