Terminal: Stuck Trash

Ever empty your trash but stuck with a full trash icon or can not empty your trash because finder is complaining that files in it are in use.

If you want to get rid of it fire up a terminal and type

rm -rf .Trash/

A word of coution “rm -rf” will delete everything starting from the
provided folder without warning. it will not complain if the directory is
not empty. A typo like “rm -rf /” will cost you your whole drive.
