there's no fun in throwing things away.

My mother threw all placemats out since she figured we wouldn't use 'em INSANE! I got so upset... I immediately got them out of the bin and said; 'Don't you ever think green' but she only laughed.

Don't know for sure but I think this has been done before however I couldn't find it on the site.
