Today, with one week left until I fly to my new apartment, movers loaded my belongings and happily drove off. They even loaded my unpacked, inflated air mattress. Looks like I'm sleeping on the floor for a week. FML

Don't you have any friends, coworkers or family where you can sleep for one week?

Can’t you buy a new airmatress? They cost only a few dollars/euros

Could have been worse.. They could have packed you debit/credit cards too...

Buy a new one, and if you really can’t afford it, take it back for a refund just before you leave. Or AirBnB?

movers don't just randomly show up. And you or somebody must have let them come in and pack all your stuff. So you deserve this for not scheduling things appropriately and allowing it to happen

i think the OPs problem is the fact they took her air mattress, despite it being unpacked. her problem is definitely not that the movers showed up at all.

If it was already inflated, I would think that it wouldn’t count as carry-on luggage, nor be able to be stored in the baggage area of the plane...

Yeah movers pack up everything as is when they come. Like they even pack garbage cans full of trash. I was lucky that someone told me that before I moved across the country. I’m sorry that happened to you, and I hope you find a more comfy place to sleep before your move!

If a new one isn't in the budget (which must be the case or there's no fml) perhaps it's worth a try to complain to the moving company and see if they might pay for one. Seems like a very stupid mistake on the movers' part. Surely they have seen a million places where the client had an air mattress there for using after the furniture was gone. How could they not understand? It's a common, normal part of moving. Rheir mistake, they should fix it. Unless OP said something like "Pack up literally everything and leave the place empty" and assumed they'd know she meant "...except items A,B, and C" That's a ydi.
