Indeed! The Robert A. Heinlein short story "The Tale of the Man Who
Was Too Lazy To Fail" [a chapter of his novel "Time Enough For Love:
The Lives of Lazarus Long"] explores this phenomenon in considerable
detail. You'll probably love it, if you haven't already read it.
It's about a man who hated work so much that he worked very,
*very* hard so that he wouldn't have to do any (and suceeded!). ;-}
