Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

That is an accomplishment.

Now I see two ways where it could go after that.

Everyone aware of your empty in-tray dumps stuff in it, so you have to start all over again.
You have no work left so they fire you, being obsolete.

I hope neither happened.

I was afraid of that. Sometimes it is better to keep such things quiet.

Yeah...

At least in this case I knew the redundancy was on the horizon, so it was just a matter of personal satisfaction to be able to empty the in-tray before then. My team did celebrate the achievement, so that was the best that could be hoped for smiley - ok
