    Mid 1980’s my /crp was C:\munnezza (literal translation of “crap” in local dialect). I didn’t know yet Unix, yet I intuitively knew there had to be some Official Place where to put files I didn’t want to delete but weren’t important.

    Mid 1990’s I switched from MS/DOS to Slackware Linux and lost a couple important files from /tmp (wiped at every boot), thus created again a worldly writable (eww) /munnezza after frantically searching “how to undelete on Linux”. In the meantime I often heard Windows-based friends shouting “AAAAAAAAA” every time they found out that the recycle bin wasn’t a /crp.
