Marriage 401, Lecture 766: Saver vs tosser
Me: Forget it. I'll just buy a binder at the store.
SH: No! I know I have some here!
Me: What's in that box?
SH [removes box from stack in corner of his office]: It's got the packing materials for my work computer. If I quit my job, I'll have to mail it back to them.
Me: And that box has to live in your office why?
SH: Leave it alone!
Me: What about that one?
SH: It has binders. From when I started this job.
Me: What year?
Me: So they're 12 years old.
SH: Yes. Here. You can have the binders.
Me: Wait! You're keeping the content?
SH: I might need it.
Me: But it's 12 years old!
SH: I still have this job.
Me: When is the last time you opened that box?
SH: A few years ago.
Me: So you've gone two or three years without opening that box but think you might need 12 year old training materials in the future?
