Today, I asked my mom if she'd seen my financial calculator on my way out to an exam. She told me she'd tossed it in the donation pile that she'd taken to the Salvation Army this morning because it was "clutter." I needed it to take the exam, which is required to pass the class, to graduate next month. The only place to buy a replacement was closed. FML

When will people learn not to touch other people's stuff? Probably never. Sorry, OP. I hope things somehow turned out okay. Although, why wasn't it packed away in your bag or something so you knew where it was? The night before my exams, I always collect everything I need and put it in one spot. Unless you did that, and she purposely selected that out of all your things because she knew it would screw you over.

I guess your financial calculator didn’t “spark joy” in your mom. Fuckin’ Marie Kondo!

Like a BAII calculator? It’s not that different from a regular. If you know what you’re doing (not blindly memorizing what button to push) it wouldn’t matter. Also, We all understand shared living space has its technical difficulties, but if something is that immediately important, don’t leave it out

when will ppl learn not to leave their valuables laying around where they may get lost or tossed out? Sorry... not the moms fault

Who said it was left out? My family would go through drawers to take stuff.

Maybe it was on OP’s room, and their mom thought they were being nice by decluttering it for them.
