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...

Not as much as thrown out
...but rendered useless.

T'was but a year ago, I had managed to put aside €500 for a 6 day trip to Paris. It was my last money, since I was unemployed (I'm on full scholarship, can't be arsed to fail any exam) and all I wanted was a memorable experience from it.

Sure, I've visited almost anything that can be visited, starting with Disneyland and ending with the obscure Aquarium in the north. I have extremely pleasant memories of everything. On my last day, I've been left with only €10 in my hand, save the money for the cab to the airport and "emergency use only". I bought myself a novelty T-shirt, white, with the Heineken logo only replaced so that it read Paris.

Went home, worn it once, put it the laundry bin, didn't see it for about two months. Until I've found it hidden in mum's dresser - it had become PINK (argh!).

My only material memory of Paris was a pink T-Shirt that I can't wear 'cause it's pink and my girlfriend can't wear 'cause it's about lager.

Epilogue - I've visited Sibiu this spring, bought a T-shirt from there, nice fabric and all, white with blue trims. Yes, it's pink now.

Length? From my neck to my knob.

P.S.: Yes, I still live with my parents. Did I mention I was unemployed?

Have you considered
doing your own laundry?

Why can't your girlfriend wear it?
I think I've missed something here. It's pink and it's about lager - I know lots of women who'd be proud to wear it.

My mother
also destroys clothing whilst washing it owing to the fact that she ignores the washing instructions in favour of her own brain. I no longer allow her to clean anything of mine when I visit.

You're hardly alone in this.
