On my first day with the company, the user opened her app and the menu took 2 minutes to come up! With that amount of knowledge, I said, “I can speed that up.”

A couple of days later, a co-worker asked if I had an assignment yet.

I said, “I am changing the structure of the database and modifying all of the maintenance programs.”

Her, “How long will that take?”

Me, “I will have it done by Monday.”

That screen came up in 3 seconds and another less than one second.

Yes, good programmers are lazy.
