Jane! Stop This Crazy Thing!

Remember George Jetson's job at Spacely Sprockets, the one he kept getting fired from? It was more or less pushing buttons all day.

I thought to myself "How unrealistic and silly of them!" Not because of the car that folded up into a suitcase, because no company would hire someone to just push buttons all day.

Fast forward to 2003. I spent a big chunk of my day simply scrolling through massive spreadsheets and ledger files. They all looked the same - I was checking for a small number of things that were, generally speaking, not there.

Which meant lots of, well, button-pushing.
