If you find yourself cutting and pasting mindlessly just to get somebody to shut up and get off your back. Stop. Tell them you don't get it, or their an idiot and they don't get it. If after that discussion the work becomes mindful for you and you thoughtfully pursue it or they agreed it was stupid and you stopped. Great. Stay. Have fun. Enjoy. If not, quit. There is no point hanging out somewhere that requires and rewards mindless work.
