I do not think you understand how a shredder works

All of the copy rooms at Microsoft have lockboxes where you can deposit confidential paper and CDs for shredding and recycling as appropriate. There's a guy in one of the copy rooms with a handful of papers that he's manually ripping into strips before depositing into the confidential bin.

Whatever works.

Maybe he's concerned the documents won't make it to be shredded, and they might be intercepted by the person opening the lockbox or at any step along the way to the shredder...

Of course. But, to me, that seems to imply that he thinks that his documents were more valuable than those of other people with documents in there. That seems pretty unlikely. But... possible. Maybe it's reeeeeally sensitive source code.

Probably from his mistress about what she is going to do to him when his wife is out of town....
