@34 the fml said "she had finally cleaned" saying finally means that it had been a while since the last time that her mom had cleaned her room, if she had done it before at all.

Isn't the sheer fact that he could afford them proof that he could afford to get his owns place maybe his parents are living with HIM and maybe the mom said finally because parents tend to think messes are bigger then they are

YDI. I assume that you would keep your $500 on a shelf. or a cabinet displaying your awesome books. Now, I seriously ask, if your mother isj ust coming in your place to clean your shit (suggesting that YOU YOURSELF DO NOT KEEP IT VERY CLEAN) I really doubt she's going through your shelves looking for stuff to throw away. Maybe 27 $500 books are the kinds of things you keep locked up. Maybe. Or maybe you're an idiot like the 20,000 people who agree that "parents suck man! they always clean m

You are lazy for not cleaning your room YDI for having your mom clean your room and not doing it yourself. If it was clean your mom wouldn't have tossed them. And for wasting your money on books. Maybe try looking up your expensive shit..

No, the mother is at fault. When you tidy up someone's room, you don't throw away anything without asking permission. Books obviously aren't garbage. She has no right to deem any of your objects useless. Its not like they were crumpled up balls of paper.

For #135. Seriously? "Book collecting loser"? I find it so sad that even the slightest sign of intelligence or individualism is looked down upon. Before you call me an idiot or "nerd" or some such thing, know that I don't give a damn what you say about me, I simply disparage your passive aggressive, pseudo-macho defensive complex. Why is it that it has become a standard for the majority of people to reflect these same behaviours? I find it sad that ideas like that exist;

my mom keeps trying to come over and clean my APARTMENT. D: there seriously needs to be some kind of self-help book to teach these parents to LEAVE THEIR KIDS' SHIT ALONE.

I dont mind. My mom is really good at only cleaning up obvious junk (dirty dishes, dirty laundry, etc), whereas everything else is just straightened up, never thrown away. It's actually really convenient when they do it well.

Well seeing how OP is at LEAST 16, you do realize that keeping comics or books from just a couple years older than that can increase in value? Doesn't mean that he bought them while at $500, it means overtime they became the worth of $500

I really don't understand how people's parents feel so obligated to "clean" their children's personal items. I understand if it's somewhere else in the house, such as the family room or kitchen, but everyone should have the right to keep what they want in their room. She should have asked you first. I would be furious.

#8 is an idiot. Who said he/ she bought the books? If they were antiques they have probably just been handed down from past generations. So the person might not even be able to get their own place yet.

No #8 is completly right. Think about it. If the books were handed through generations then from whom must the books come from? Right, his parents. This would mean that the mother would know what books she threw out. So I would say this is a YDI or even mabey a fake.

@8/24: It's possible they were given to her by her dad. It's also possible that she isn't living at home? Perhaps her mum came to stay, and mum's tend to take over the household when they come to stay. I think the second is more likely. If she was still living at home, her mum would probably know about the $13500 worth of books in her room. OP, your life is seriously fucked. FYL for having a stupid mum who thinks she can throw out your stuff without asking.

I have antique books that I bought for cheaps or recieved for free, but are really worth a lot. Some people are stupid and basically give that stuff away without knowing, and others are assured that you will take care of it forever like they did. So, for all you know, those could have been gifts or things the OP picked up at a garage sale. Also, it sounds more to me like the OP is now living on their own but had some things left over in their old room, and hadn't gotten around to cleaning

Who the hell says she lives with her mother? It says that her mother finally cleaned OUT her room, suggesting that it is no longer inhabited. My guess would be the OP is in college/early professional and simply left some things behind in her old room. Totally normal.

Plus, in some cases, you DON'T want to have anything extremely valuable with you in college. Actually, that's probably most cases. Especially if it's big and bulky, like 27 old books. There's way too much room that you could use for more practical things, like books you would actually use for studies, or a porn stash, or clothes or something. It's also pretty risky considering you have roommates most of the time. So back home was probably one of the safest places for them to be...it's just t

She could have inherited them from her grandparents, great-grandparents, uncles or aunts and therefore the Mom/parents had no clue what they were actually worth... I wouldn't doubt it at all. When my grandma died years ago she had put it in her will that all her kids,grandkids etc. were supposed to go through her apartment and take whatever they want to and whatever isn't taken give away to charity organizations. We found a bunch of stuff in her place that looked totally worthless but ended u

I don't want to have to keep repeating this comment, but I must say there is every chance (in fact it's probably MORE likely) that the OP doesn't live at home, and her mum just came to stay at her place for a bit, and cleaned her room because mums are like that. Also, if the OP was living at home, the mum would probably know about the $13500 worth of books
