Yet another reason to think before you shred

Fan Mistakenly Shreds Playoff Ticket

A little housecleaning nearly cost the Rev. Walter Hermanns a seat at Sunday’s National Football Conference championship game. Hermanns, who has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair, was getting some help from a friend last Friday when he asked him to take care of a stack of papers left in a bin for shredding.

When his friend got to four Green Bay Packers tickets bundled together with a rubber band, he took off the band, put one in the shredder and then stopped short.

“Something rang a bell and he said, ‘Are you sure you want to shred these?’” Hermanns said.

Too late. The ticket was in shreds.
