I don't have any files at work but I have two filing cabinets. As I have no need to file things in color-coded hanging folders, over the years I've moved into the this space with random detritus. One holds all my used plastic shopping bags from takeout lunches. Another has two beers from a six-pack that I bought about a year ago. Yet another is filled with old mail I've never bothered to open, and my top drawer is packed with cold medicines and holistic remedies I've accumulated over three years of working through various seasonal maladies. If someone replaced all my filing cabinets with a big trash can they'd be doing me a favor.
