This is a question Thrown away: The stuff you loved and lost.

Smash Wogan writes, "we all love our Mums, but we all know that Mums can be cunts, throwing out our carefully hoarded crap that we know is going to be worth millions some day."

What priceless junk have you lost because someone just threw it out?

Zero points for "all my porn". Unless it was particularly good porn...

My carefully collected big red bucket of Lego
Lost one day because my skiving uncle came around asking my mum for stuff he could sell at the car boot, she gave him a boot full of toys we 'didn't play with anymore'.

To this day the pain of discovery on coming home from school is still fresh.

Edit: Actually, the same uncle who moved into our old house that my mum was renting out, once more stories of 'hard times' were given and my mum let them move in. Most of the stuff we hadn't had time to move originally (ie, everything from under 12 that I wasn't currently using) was locked in the loft. My uncle asked to store some stuff in there and we never saw any of that stuff again. I think he basically sold what he could, or the kids didn't want to play/wreck, and all the rest that had no worth (to HIM, it was our memories!) he chucked. Funnily enough, my parents live in Wales now and that uncle moved from Doncaster all the way to just up the road from them last year. I really wish my mum would see what a skiver he is, it is so difficult for me to see and not comment on.

painful
i had nightmares about this for years - i knew it could happen so i have all my lego squirrelled away still.

my wife is less thrilled. Now i fear she will do this to me one day.

Now i do love her, but by the power in me she would be out as fast as her little legs would carry her if she tried this shit on me.

this breaks my heart
almost as much as learning how much it costs for entry into Legoland.

I need to check on the status of my lego
it's at my parents' place, as far as I know.

I'm concerned about asking for it though because last time I used it was when my brother told my mum that I spoked pot.

a mate had come round when the folks were away and we played with lego for about 4 straight hours, stoned off our gourds.

was telling my mum about the lego when they got back and she said "yes, james said you got stoned and played with lego"

they'd blatantly know why I want it back now!

Have you seen how much Lego retails for these days?
I've bought myself some recently and got a good deal thanks to a very lovely b3tan, but seriously- if anyone still thinks they may have their Lego hidden somewhere claim it now and put it somewhere safe but accessible to play with!

If not for the financial implications of replacing it, then for the memories and sheer joy brought by something so very simple
