Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't. Depends on what's going on.

I try to. So does my boss. So should most people.

Gotta ski and enjoy a beer and a brat on top of the mountain!

Though, nobody suffers when i take a day off.

I never fault anyone for doing it. If anything, I lean more toward thinking it's weird when people don't do it. For me, it really comes down to whatever else is going on that week and whether or not I need to request that day off.

My B day is on a sunday this year and on daylight savings. I am being robbed of an hour.

You should write your congressmen.

Citibank puts this one really dense piece of cardboard in their junk mail, so I can't just toss the envelope into my shredder. I have to open the envelope and pull it apart. :gomez:

In an era when the cloud owns your life and data mining is prevalent AF, does it even make a difference if we shred our envelopes?

I'll answer this one. Yes, but I hoard them in a box forever.

My father-in-law shreds everything. Sometimes I make a show out of throwing away a pre-approved promo with my name on it just to see him freak out. If I actually get my identity stolen, he'll have the last laugh and I'll eat a lot of crow I'm sure. It's a risk I take.

It's super weird that I'm so insanely paranoid about getting viruses on my computer but so laissez-faire about mail in my trash can.

My car has a digital radio that displays the song currently playing. Cool bonus that I've never had before, "What song's that? Oh! There it is written before me, how convenient!"

I can't stand then when certain radio stations insist on doing a promo first, so all you see is Playing Now on KWRZ Your Home of Classic Rock: Nei....

Aargh!
