Employees Discover That Their Ex-Coworker Was A Genius Hacker Who Took Laziness To The Next Level

Ever met someone too smart for their own good? But not in a narcissistic ironic way? Didn’t think so. This engineer, however, is so clever, he even thought of a couple of ways to enjoy laziness in his office, a privilege people usually earn through hard work. He made it possible using his hacking skills, and the scripts he created were so good, his coworkers even decided to keep them after he quit for another company. Scroll down to learn how the mind of a problem solver operates! (Facebook cover image: Mitch Altman)

The first scripts send a message to his wife only when his console is active- means he is really working. And I'm sure she knows about it anyway. I would find it adorable, if my husband wrote such script:)

This isn't being lazy at all, it's being very efficient. He obviously has the tools and knowledge to automate simple things allowing him to concentrate on more difficult tasks.

THANK you. Automating repetitive tasks takes work & skill, but saves time in the long run. Nothing lazy about it.
