Examples of unnecessary/pointless processes for an essay!?
I must write a process essay over something i don’t like or a pointless process…. the teacher read us an example paper, and its topic was the process of embalming (which the writer explained to us that it was an unnecessary process). So… I need some examples of pointless processes. What are some things (processes) that we do in life that are pointless. Any ideas would be great!!!! Thanks 🙂
