(KHOU Houston)   Remember when you could borrow a baggie of sugar from your neighbors without everyone in the apartment complex assuming you were buying drugs? "It's sad you can't give people sugar or salt or baking soda because the color is white"   (khou.com) divider line 135

I wonder why they don't add color to cocaine to make it look like other stuff.  Like brown sugar, for example.

Honestly, I believe that apartment living is bad for humans.  It adds a stress to us at a pre-historic level.

Next time, when you're handing to them, say in a clear loud voice "Here is your totally not a ridiculously large amount of drugs!' That should do it.

No one at the apartment complex would talk due to privacy concerns.

Sure.  "Privacy concerns".

Nosey farking finger wagers.  They should kick them out.
 
2014-08-01 07:15:54 AM  
Duh, that's why when you hand them something you say, "Here's THE SUGAR you asked for".  Then no one thinks it's drugs.

/who borrows sugar outside of a 1950s sitcom?


People who are neighbors.

I have borrowed sugar from my neighbors. They have borrowed butter or eggs from me. We also loan tools back and forth - hammers, jumper cables, ladders and such.

Best of all, if I'm going on vacation, my neighbors will look out for our house. Or back when my kid was in school, they would look out for her until someone from the family got home if she left her key.

We stay out of each other's business but we help each other when we can. Good neighbors.

FTFA: Officials with housing say removing someone from the voucher program requires a higher burden of proof, such as a police report or photographic evidence.

And they say housing has promised that even if they're forced to move out, they will not lose their vouchers.


I would think the "Housing Officials" would not be able to remove them for drugs without a guilty plea or verdict in a court of law. This is ridiculous -- guilt by innuendo.

I hate lending sugar to neighbors.
It's always makes things awkward afterward having to pester them while they are mowing the lawn or whatever
"hey, do you have that sugar you owe me?"
"Ah gee I haven't made it to the supermarket yet" or "I forgot to buy it last week, I'll get it next week, honest".

Bullshiat. Farking deadbeats.

And people who are too lazy to go to the store at that very moment and are on good terms with their neighbors.

Was recently visiting the folks and my mom actually asked me to run next door and ask for a cup of sugar.

Well shiat, I guess I'm poor then. I figured that borrowing sugar had to do with being too lazy or busy to drive to the store.

That's when you have to kick it up a notch,

"That's a nice lawn you're mowing there. It'd be a shame if something happened to it. BTW, the vig just moved up to two sticks of butter and a colander."

Remember how we used to do stupid things like dipping our fingers into rubbing alcohol and setting it on fire and then we would either blow it out, or it would go out by itself or we would jump around all willy-nilly and shaking our fingers until it went out?  I remember.  Sure, stupid, fun stuff.

Now it's "let's pour the whole bottle on ourselves because it's a 'challenge'" kinda times.  I bet they'll look back fondly on that.
 
2014-08-01 07:40:06 AM  
So, since she is blah, then the sugar was paid for probalby with food stamps or SNAP so she's giving away government property and ought to be locked up for that!

*snark of course,*  Glad I don't live in a big city.  My neighbors can do what the fark they want as long as it isn't on my lawn.
 
2014-08-01 07:43:16 AM  
If your first assumption is that your neighbors are buying drugs, you must live in a shiatty neighborhood.
 
2014-08-01 07:47:58 AM  
I see two possible solutions to this problem:

A) Bring a measuring cup when asking to borrow sugar, to add the appearance of legitimacy

or

B) Use advanced technology to remove the earth's atmosphere.

Sucrose in its pure state is white. Brown sugar is sucrose plus other compounds (molasses).

Us richers just tell the help to go get sugar.  And we don't actually make anything ourselves.

My guess: This had nothing to do with drugs.  The drugs were just an excuse to get rid of a couple of low rent tenants and replace them with "market value" rentals.

Like masa? That'd be more practical than brown sugar, which has molasses in it. Not very practical for snorting. Customer service first, folks!

Photographic Evidence? That's some fine detective work there Lou. You took a picture of a bag of sugar. Wait a minute; this sugar is primo. Primo Brand Sugar, it's on sale at Kwik-E-Mart!

Higher burden of proof is a "fine line."
Technically a police report is also hearsay...

What happened to borrowing A CUP of sugar?
You bring a farking cup; can I borrow a cup of sugar?
No Cup; No Sugar!

Sidebar: 12 year old boy shoots a homeless man.
What a farked up city. Dealing sugar in the projects,
and kids shooting the homeless.

So very much *THIS*.

Not only that, but if you're working on something, neighbor might come by and ask if you need help.  Happens here all the time.

And you even offer for those you might not necessarily be friends with, because otherwise you're being clique-y.

All it takes is a realization that while people are different, most people are good and while they may hold different views than you do, that doesn't mean you can't be friends with them, or at the very least cordial and helpful neighbors.

It's an excuse to get to know your neighbor. Not that I'd want to talk to the farkers on either side of me. As long as they cut their grass I'm happy.

I was hoping this was going to be an open and shut case of overzealous landlords trying to kick out subsidized tenants followed by the government stepping in and slapping them.
Of course, really, I know it will end badly for the tenants instead, losing housing, probably losing vouchers too because someone saw them in the news and saw the keyword "drugs" and stopped reading, or someone nearby takes their version of the law into their own hands and shoots the "drug dealing tenants".

Last summer, I had a knock on the door.
The neighbor had sent her 9 year old girl over to my house, through 1/2 mile of woods, to borrow a cup of sugar.
I live in the middle of nowhere and it is not unusual for this to happen.

So, say it was a big cup of cocaine the neighbor was borrowing.  How shiatty is our world where this involves informers, police, and the government?
