I coded myself out of a job once

No shit: I wrote a computer program to do the job that I was hired to do.

I had several weeks, at least, remaining on my contract, but I got bored doing repetitive data entry shit that required no thought. So I learned the scripting language for that particular environment (specific to the banking industry) and automated the work.

In a few hours, I found myself without anything from my original contract remaining to be done. It wasn't a great time to render myself redundant at that particular company. The name was Countrywide.
