New Yorkers (and visitors to the area who had the foresight to carry things around that irritate them!) have said goodbye to their bad memories from 2009 in a public shredding ceremony in Times Square.
Items that got shredded included:
- Letters from ex-lovers,
- Photos of ex-lovers,
- Redundancy letters,
- and newspaper clippings of bad days for peopleâ€™s favourite sports teams!
This is the third event of itâ€™s kind!
One â€œshredderâ€ placed a piece of paper into the shredder that simply said â€œWriterâ€™s Blockâ€ â€“ she hopes to write a musical this year.
For items that could not be shredded, the Times Square Alliance were most helpful in providing a sledgehammer and a large waste-container.
What would we have in the UK, maybe the â€œPointless Kitchen Gadgets Destruction Day?â€ – Let me know in the comments!
