As some of you may or may not know, I'm taking on the mammoth job of cleaning out my grandpa's attic. The place is PACKED with stuff, most of it broken or useless. One of the many items doomed to the landfill is (Or was) an old bed frame that my grandpa made from 2x4s 20 some odd years ago for my one of my cousins to sleep in. The thing was covered in dust and not structurally sound, so he told me to get the Sawzall and hack it apart. I did as I was told and as I was doing so realized how pissed my cousin will be if/when he finds out the fate of his old bed, and how most of his anger will be directed towards me as I was the person who sawed it apart. I told Gramps this revelation, and he agreed that he would be displeased, but said to "Tell him I told you to cut it up and throw it away" if he asks where it is. When I first broached the project to the cousin in question, he said he supported it as long as nothing was thrown away. Of course that is never going to happen so... Yeah... I am a totally non sentimental person, and could care less if something I used to use/like was thrown away. But most of the rest of my family is the opposite, and will throw a fit if things that they have memories of is junked. My question is this: What is it that makes people so disturbed/upset if something that they had 20 years ago, but never even think of now, gets deemed "trash"? From my point of view, that bed frame was old, rickety, and doing nobody any good, so why in the name of everything that's good keep it? IDK... Its something that baffles me.
