JustGoWithItTakes one to know one.
VizualHow long has it been since you last talked to them?
My moms side of the family is very messed up. I am constantly meeting family members I didn't know I had. My aunts and uncles would hold a grudge against my grandparents for pretty long periods of time. And then my a lot of my cousins would hate their parents for years at a time. I saw my oldest cousin in November. Last time I saw him I was 11 and he was just getting getting married. Now he is 30 something, and has two kids, and works full time.
My advice: don't adress the elephant in the room. Don't bring up weed or anything. Just tell them what you have been doing
Logey.Not to be a dick but I feel like you are leaving out some crucial information as to why they would take your college fund and spend it on a vacation house. Maybe i'm wrong and they really suck, but them going to that extreme over catching you smoking is hard to believe.
But good luck, its probably going to be awkward as ballsack.
TheFireThe last time I talked to my dads wife was a longtime ago and she always acts like I am up to no good when I talk to her after what happened. My friends tell me that she is evil lol, and I have always tried to be nice to her even through what she did.
My dad talks to me often though. Its like his wife has this close minded idea of how I am supposed to live and she doesn't want me to influence her kids who are 18 years old and she thinks they are much better off in the world than I am saying they have plans and all this and that. Ignoring what I want to do in life treating me as a burnout pothead. She thinks I have brain damage because I smoked weed when I was 16 its that bad.
Its kind of fucked up but I got my own friends, house and shit so its cool. They can live in their bubble of what ever they think and want to do.
I'm just kind of hesitant wanting to eat dinner with them, I'm going to see if this neighbor girl will help me out. It would be much better with her there instead of just me I think.
saskskierIf you think things are going to be awkward between you and your dad/his wife, think how awkward it's going to be for whatever girl you decide to bring along, especially if your parents decide they want to get into it with you.
I would try to have a decent conversation with them. Let them know how you've been doing and what you've been accomplishing. There is a pretty good chance they are just worried about you and want the best for you and feel like using weed is going to hinder your potential. Talk about what's been going well and build on that. Don't get all up in arms and spend your time making a stand on the benefits of weed because it's going to fall on deaf ears.
Just my thoughts.
TheFireMy dad knew I was smoking and have been smoking for a while had no issues with it. Then my step mom finds out for the first time she freaks out and shit really gets fucked on some other level. She views cannabis like Heroin not even lying I didn't even know people where that brainwashed.
Mr.noodleIf my mom did that to me I wouldn't even want to go Until they had a very persuasive apology. And how old are you? Just wondering
TheFireI kind of want to let them know I still smoke weed just because they have some bad views on it. My step mom thinks alcohol on the other hand is perfectly ok to over indulge in with little health consequnces.
-MK-Just go, and have a good time seeing your dad. If they start to bring shit up respectfully defend yourself, and if they continue just walk out, and tell your dad you don't intend to have a relationship with him until him and his wife get their shit together, and respect you.
Strange.Journey.honestly it sounds like this your dads wife is in no way a motherly figure to you and in that case i would say to only agree to have dinner with your dad. if she wants to kick you to curb and hasn't even tried to make any contact with you to see how you are doing then honestly kick her to the curb just as hard. she will get it when you make it clear you don't want her to be a part of your life. but idk just my 5 cents. if she comes and is disrespectful just get up and apologize to you dad, say nothing to that bitch and walk out. also make some snide comment about how she spent your college fun on a vacation home for herself which is extremely selfish
sewardbring a pie and i am 100% certain all will be forgotten.
Dr.Nitrog3nI would've honestly denied the invitation and I probably wouldn't even have kept in contact with them if possible if they were my parents.
Maybe I'm just a shitty person but I couldn't forgive them in a year for squandering my college savings WHILE I'm going to college, all because I scorched a few bowls.
I'm also gonna go ahead say there might be more to this sorry.
californiagrownLol, it was THEIR savings you spoiled dick. It wasn't his.
TheFireIts the other way around, jesus found me and he has cleansed me of smoking the devils lettuce. Jesus smokes for me and takes one for the team so I no longer have to smoke weed.
That will for sure work
yoskiyou seem like an idiot, im not surprised they took this position, weed is only going to eliminate the few brain cells you have left
soulskierLeft you without a job?
