>Part of my job is to shred old lease documents. These are documents that are well over ten years old. I see dates like, “April 12, 1992” and wonder what I was doing that day. I was a senior and had just started dating my only high school boyfriend a month before. I sit there and shred, but I can only do it for maybe 45 minutes until the shredder begins to overheat.
I have my iPod, which does help, but it just barely keeps me from gouging my eyes out just to stave off the boredom.
How the hell long did it take this whistleblower guy to shred documents that were the equivalent to 1/4 of all the printed materials in the Library of Congress? He got the order in 1999 did he just finish yesterday? I would have gone all Shining after the first few months.
