What's more aggravating is when the responsibilities pile up and they're not interesting, they should have been automated at some time in the past, and you get them because you're the only person who won't say "no". An interesting side effect of being in a car accident is that a few of those tasks moved off my plate solely because people thought I wouldn't be returning to work in time to keep them alive. I made it back in under a quarter/three months, and they were the last thing I'd worked on before the accident, so I could continue to own them. But the transfer provides a chance to automate. My responsibility is now the much more interesting tasks of training, consulting, documenting, and offering best practices.
Title: Am I supposed to stack them, or wear them inside each other?
Snarky: Why yes, I did want to talk to you about assuming some new responsibilities.
