Well, I had a flip-out at my office yesterday, I was pretty sure that I had shredded something (which needed to be shred, b/c it had my name/ss#, etc ... on it) ... but I was trying to run it back thru my mind so I could confirm that I had shredded it and not lost it (and possibly had it fall out of my truck) ... anway, I had not emptied the shredder (crosscut) this week, so yup, I dug thru the shreeder, found a few pieces and matched them to a copy of the original - so, I guess I shredded it but just didn't remember ... now I need a vacuum to clean up the mess - but I feel better:)

yeah, I half considered driving back to the office at 11pm last night ... my wife was like "you can check it in the morning, nobody is going to empty your shredder tonight:)" ... she on the other hand is the exact opposite of me - which works out very well ... UMP, I like a good campfire, but I am always putting so much damn water on when its time to go home - it to combat the damn what if scenarios:)

Yes, the water isnt for the fire, its for your anxiety. I know the feeling.

Sounds like you and I should get together and double check lightswitches, door locks, engine oil, and pill boxes some weekend!:uglyhamme :uglyhamme OCD sucks!

Ever read the book "Just Checking" ??? written by a woman that had OCD and her story of how it controlled her life and destroyed her marraige? great book, funny but sad. :o

This whole problem started b/c I had the paperwork in my truck last friday headed to my office, but I had to stop at the repair shop b/c I had a brake caliper seize up, so I put the paperwork in the car I borrowed from my mom, then my dad gave me his truck so I put the paperwork in there, parked his truck in my garage and he came to pick it up on saturday morning - so I put the paperwork on my garage shelfs, my truck was laid up until monday so I had planned on using my wife's suburban to go to work, put the paperwork in her car on saturday evening, then we got in the accident so after dealing with the police and the tow truck guy I took the paperwork out of the suburban and put it back in my mom's car ... and from there I lost track of it ... I found the other stuff that was with it in my office put away/filed in the correct spot, but I couldn't find the stuff that I needed to shred and I couldn't remember if I had done the task - normally my memory is pretty much like a video recorder (I can tell you about putting my boat away last fall, tell you what the weather was like, etc) so it was disconcerting to not be able to remember if I had or hadn't shredded the stuff ... it's probably just stress related - the other crazy thing was that when the cop was doing his post-accident interview I was giving him the information for who else was in the car and I stumbled for like 5 seconds to think of my wife's middle name (when we got married she took her maiden name and replaced her given middle name - but I was going to give the cop my wife's full maiden name instead of her married name) - oh well, its friday:)

Did I remember to put fresh oil in the boat last fall? did I remember to drain all the water out of the block? I wonder if there is any water in there? I wonder if I put a fresh oil filter on? Did I remember to put clean undies on this morning?

So, if you were able to just piece back the shredded document to see if you actually shredded it, doesn't that mean that anyone could go through your shreddings and piece them back together?

I think you should get a better shredder!

It is much easier when you have a COPY of the original... It is very difficult without one!! I shreaded something before that I did not intend to and had to peice it back together... Unsuccessful mission!!:rolleyes:

just so you know, all of my shreaded documents are mixed in a slurry of urine prior to setting them out to the curb...

Truck with the caliper frozen - yup - 03' dodge

Erk, I couldn't piece the document back together, but I knew that I used a specific color pen on the document so I found a few shards with that pen color on them and called it good ... but since my shredder is not D.O.D. grade I am sure someone could piece it back together if they really wanted to ... but I'm not concerend with that.

The car we hit was a chevy, and ours was a chevy ... his was more like a pebble, mine was more like a rock:)
