Automation Sucks

Automation is a double edged sword that often slices the wrong way. 

The negative impact of not thinking everything through can be devastating.  You intend to do one thing, and something else happens.  I often get blamed for doing something automatically, which in the end the blame does fall on me.  I often do these automated tasks to make the lives of my co-workers easier. 

* Note to self: don’t do it.  It’s not worth it.  The risk is too high.
