I don’t like doing pointless things. Sometimes it’s OK for me to do them anyway, for example when things which seem pointless to me are important to somebody else. Or when it is company policy to do things that way, and this policy could ne-ver be changed.

What really bugs me is when I talk to people who defined the way I have to do things, and their reaction is “I know it would be better to do it differently, but people would not get it right anyway”. This is an insult to the people who have to do things, because you are basically saying that they are too dumb to do it right. And you are admitting that you don’t even want to try. So, please don’t say things like this.
