    Over the course of a job, most people accumulate stuff. And most of us don’t think ahead to if — and when — we might leave that position.

    But some jobs come with a fixed end date.  And that’s the case with today’s guest on Recap. This work week was unlike any other he’s had in eight years.

    “Packing boxes. Full of eight years of accumulated mementos, memories, plaques, photos, papers,” said Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter in his last week in office. “I have a lot of stuff and it needs to get out of here.”

    In between the packing, Nutter took time to reflect on some of his more typical weeks as mayor of the nation’s fifth-largest city.
