Today, my mom sold our electronic stuff to pay for hurricane shutters. We live in Chicago. FML

that's so pointless though I don't believe this Fml!!

Removing electronics from your life can be a rewarding experience. Granted you may be a little more bored than usual, sooner or later you'll realize how dependent you were on them and life isn't so bad without them. Find out new things about you, think about everything that's going on in your life. Take advantage of a situation that isn't in your favor and make it a positive and rewarding one! Be thankful that your mother was thinking about your familys safety as well!

She's preparing for 2012. Smart lady for a mother OP. I'm stockpiling food, ammo and water.

Maybe she just believes in the motto "you can never be too prepared. "

The world isn't ending in 2012. They always say the world is gonna here and there, but it's all loads of shit.

It won't end in 2012, It's a mytg, and they say that because the Chinese( I think ) Calender Ends on December 22, 2012.

but how could OP post this without electronics?

and how come the location next to op's name says Illinois?

ThEsAlAdMuNcHeR 0

haha ikr all week it's been on and off vise versa over and over and over again

144 is a perfect example of idiocy. Though to be honest hardly anyone knows Illinois, they only know Chicago. A bit saddening, isn't it? They don't know Peoria or Evanston or a bunch of other places that also exist in Illinois.

demonspeed 0

96- There aren't any hurricanes either.

Sell the hurricane shutters and get them back?

I don't think there is much of a market in hurricane shutters.

Is she related to Peter Griffin by any chance?

Not even Peter Griffin is dumb enough to do that.

no way it's real. if it is, have your mom committed.

At least you now live in of the best-protected houses against hurricanes in Chicago. That's gotta count for something.

She thinks that "the windy city" is implying that there will be hurricanes I am guessing.

Wouldn't hurricane shutters work for tornadoes as well?
