To revelers, office files are confetti

November 08, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Manhattan office workers who got carried away during the Yankees victory parade Friday apparently began tossing files and documents out the window when they couldn't get their hands on confetti.

Auditor Damian Salo, who attended the parade, told the New York Post he found all sorts of personal financial documents in the mountains of shredded paper tossed from skyscrapers as the World Series winners rode up Broadway.

They included pay stubs, banking data, law firm memos and even some court files.

The founder of one financial firm, Alan Sarroff, says his company reprimanded one "overzealous" employee for throwing records that should have been shredded out the window.
