Leaving stuff stored at your parents house may seem like a good idea. But if there's any value to it, you better let them know.
That's the lesson that one Twitter user found out the hard way.
The user in question goes by the name J&L Game, and he shared a tweet that's especially terrifying to retro game fans everywhere, saying "Well, by my estimate I lost well over $500,000 of games. I left my old stuff in storage (my mom's home). Today I found out she threw out my Ataris, Famicom, S Famicom, TGfx, PCE, NG AES, MegaDrive, Master System, basically every system and game I never took with me."
Our heart hurts after reading that, and if it wasn't bad enough, she also threw out a comic book collection along with some music gear and skateboards. Apparently, this mom was quite literally sick of his crap.
Has anything like this ever happened to you?
