Myth: It's not worth engineering time to automate a task done once a month/year.
1) if detected/reminded, you still need to remember how to accomplish the task. If it's detected, it's trivial to automate.
2) It's still a task interrupt. Assume that a task -- even if easy -- throws someone out of their current task by 30 minutes each time.
3) If undetected/reminded, double or triple the time it takes for troubleshooting.
4) Brain drain is a thing.
5) No, documentation doesn't help.
