Like Usher, I’m caught up!! I normaly don’t explain my references but tis the season, so I’m feeling generous.
Therefore every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.” Fr. Robert Barron
Things that don’t work have not place in our society. Not people, not things, nothing. You must work/produce/function to hold status with us, if you fail to work/produce/function you/it may find yourself in the recycle/trash or on the curb. Parting with something or someone is difficult for some of us. Those who it is most difficult for end up on Hoarders. Our expectation is that people/things will work/produce/function as they should. What doesn’t help, is it truly a hindrance? I don’t know. All I know is that this time of waiting is a good time to clean and cleaning involves rooting through lots of junk to find out what works/produces/functions and what doesn’t.
