Go into Finder -> preferences -> advanced and uncheck " Empty Trash Securely "

Secure Empty trash can take a long time depending on the amount of data you are deleting.

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude towards the problem. You understand ?
