Dad suddenly regrets letting his kid dig through his old Nintendo games

Upon release, I would proceed to beat his ass raw with a belt, while screaming obscenities... Then I would take away every single piece of electronics he owns while I explain how long and severely he is now grounded for... Also, I would start calling the other kids my "favorites" for a couple of years, just in case he forgets...

Fark you, you narco douchenozzle.


See I'm going to go the exact opposite of this comment and say as a farker whose parents were doing this exact same thing in there garage growing up it puts unnecessary amount of stress on the child. I was scared on a regular basis that a family member or friend was going to see our grow op and call the cops. I was never allowed to have friends over to play or sleep over. Every visit with an aunt or uncle was making sure they had no reason to go in the garage. Home is supposed to be a place your kids feel safe not having to live in fear of CPS.

FirstNationalBastard: I really don't see why kids today believe the DARE Just Say No propaganda.

I know millennials aren't exactly beloved by most, but at least they had the good sense to see through the anti-drug propaganda bullshiat.


It's because there was at least some visible counter culture when we were growing up. Now it's rarely even there, so the machine works better.

I'm guessing they didn't share with him?

But for seriously, this is what happens when you let a country fill your kids head with bs propoganda. IF they had a wine cellar down there, would he have turned them in?
 
2012-08-26 12:13:02 PM
Hey kid, you are doing it all wrong. You steal the weed, smoke it and/or sell it. If you get busted you use it as leverage.

Kids these days

MasterAdkins: I would love to know what was going though the kid's head.


Based on news reports, most teens believe the results of calling the cops on your parents will be a few hours of Law and Order reality show in your house with the cops really putting your parents in their place, and then a few years or so of parents who have learned they can't just tell you what to do.

The law involvement usually has repercussions the kid forever regrets. This time at least the attempt at a reasoned and appropriate response has been adjusted to not quite a felony. Probably the best they could do given they are required to maintain a show of zero-tolerance.

I remember thinking it was a conundrum whether someone should be turned in for letting their 13yo smoke weed. This was because I had been consistently misinformed my whole life as to the "dangers" of marijuana. Then I grew up & went to work in an industry where 90% of the people I worked with smoked pot @ work. Even though I never got into it myself, I did learn how harmless it is.

I'm just saying when I was a teenager, I was woefully ignorant about reality when it comes to drugs. He'll probably sharpen up in a decade or so.

No, for obvious reasons. This situation has its' analogy in children of illegal immigrants threatening their parents with the ICE if they make their kids mad.

I don't know what was going through that kid's head. There's a lot of different reasons he could've done it. I'll just say though, from my own past, there was a time I could see myself doing the same. I swallowed that BS hook, line, and sinker. I thought it was important that everyone obeyed the law, and I hated corruption so much when people would profess to believe in something and then turn around and break their code and beliefs the moment it involved a family member or a friend. I don't know if that was what that kid was thinking, but if it was, then i understand.

Thankfully, I realized what a load of horse shiat that all was before I did anything stupid.

My dad never had a grow op. He just dealt it. So things were pretty normal for me. The only real
rule was "don't tell anyone". I still had the occasional sleepover, had birthday parties at the house,
etc...

I can see how your situation was more stressful, though.

I can remember on more than one occasion making 2 batches of brownies - one for me for snacks
and the "special" batch for the adults.

Why wait? That kid can go live with an aunt or otherwise sympathetic relative. Hopefully he can find one. What a little shiat. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face.

People really need to read Spenglers "The Decline Of The West" to understand this conflict that seems to be going on between Boomers and their kids.

Especially the part about cultural subjugation.

I wouldnt let an untrustworthy punk live in my house. If I were the parents, Id send him away right now if I could.

So instead of having all the free pot he could ever want, parents with an extra source of income, and a likely free pass from his parents if he was ever arrested for something minor, he decided to bring in the police and cost his family a fortune in legal fees and loss of reputation?

I think we may have just uncovered the ending of Breaking Bad. Walt Jr. is such a puppy dog. Even Walt Sr. would have to capitulate if that kid turned him in.

I farked up the term. Spengler didn't call it "cultural subjugation" although i think thats a good description.

He called it "pseudomorphosis"

Pseudomorphosis[10] The concept of pseudomorphosis is one that Spengler borrows from mineralogy and a concept that he introduces as a way of explaining what are in his eyes half-developed or only partially manifested Cultures. Specifically pseudomorphosis entails an older Culture so deeply ingrained in a land that a young Culture can not find its own form and full expression of itself. This leads to the young soul being cast in the old moulds, in Spengler's words. Young feelings then stiffen in senile practices, and instead of expanding creatively, it fosters hate toward the other older Culture.

The parents made the kid an accomplice in their law-breaking. They deserve what they get for contributing to the delinquency of a minor ON TOP OF what they get for the drugs.

Pud: Probably retaliation for a punishment. I knew a girl when I was in my teens that told the police her parents were growing pot after she was put on restriction for breaking curfew. They weren't, but they were taken into custody for a day while their house was searched. The parents were released, the girl was fined thousands of dollars for filing a false report (which the parents had to pay).

With that in mind, just think of the power the kid would have over the parents if they actually were growing pot.


I'd be all like "We'll I need an ounce a week, and a new 458used 430 (help keep it on the down low ya know), thus $500 a week for gas, and I don't want to hear shiat about school or whatever, mom go make me or sandwich, Dad put the bigscreen in my room you can have the little TV. this is how shiat is gonna go if you don't like it I 911"!

As a kid, finding your parents weed is great. You can just take it. What are they going to do, confront you about where their illegal drugs are?

I hope this kid goes to a foster home full of teenage boys who have been removed from crack houses. Also, the home should be run by a couple of people who take in as many kids as possible because they hope to make a profit off of being foster parents.
 
2012-08-26 01:07:38 PM
They weren't just growing pot for their own use. They were high-level dealers, who probably let all sorts of shady characters in that house. No doubt the kid felt unsafe. He made the right call. Pretty much as a rule, if your own child feels compelled to call the cops on you for any reason, you've failed as a parent.

Both are scheduled for formal arraignments in the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas on Sept. 21. They remain free on their own recognizance.
