Cool, always like to see some good old automation. Big fan of that.

Have you heard about that dude that automated all his work for 6 years, gaining 95k a year, he even introduced errors to not raise suspicions, and got fired when they found out.

I don't know if it's 100% real, but worth checking it out.

Right? I would've asked him what ELSE he could completely automate

Totally, I would have valued him a lot more after that, It would have saved a lot of money to the company... although he lied about it for 6 years.

I mean, did they ever ask? You can't lie about something if its never brought up

Yup, that's true, I would have not had any problems with it...

Only reason I say that is, as long as you are getting done what you are suppose to on time, your employer doesn't tend to ask questions.

At least, no where I've worked would ask questions.

That has also been my case, I think they ask more questions when you don't get the stuff done than when you do.
