The Question Club
i'm 24. i don't smoke pot - i dont care if others do around me, but im perfectly satisfied with my marlboros and a six pack of sam adams.
my mom has been staying with me and my boyfriend for the past month, and my dad has been here for the last two week. they came to help us get some stuff done (they live in texas, were in ohio). I grew up your typical boring suburban childhood, and my mom was a stay at home mom. my mom wouldnt even let me have bags that were made of HEMP when i was a kid.
so, enough of the backstory. i caught my mom smoking pot in our living room (my boyfriend and i live together). i didnt actually see her smoking it, but i smelled it, she thought we were all gone, etc etc... basically, i know she was smoking pot. when she and my dad left to go do something today, i checked in one of her bags (i felt so very dirty doing this) and i found the pot in her bag, so, evidence confirmed.
Anyway, I don't care that she smokes pot - i couldn't care less actually. I just don't want her to do it in our house. We prefer ithat people smoke in the garage, because my boyfriend's family just shows up all the time and walks right into the house. My mom is the uber defensive type, who always thinks people are accusing or attacking her of stuff, and she denies everything. i would like to avoid a huge blow up session, i just dont want her to smoke in the living room.
Dear TQC - how would you get the message across to your mother that A) you dont care that she smokes and B) to please smoke in the garage - my house, my rules, etc. seriously. i don't want my boyfriend's uberstraight laced grandma to show up and see my mom smoking pot. :::headdesk:::
