Need your opinion Shroomery
    #11320357 - 10/25/09 08:51 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

So I gave my roommate $$ to go to philly to have our tanks filled. He went down with a 20lber and a 30lber. I gave him money for the 30. He goes to the Sound Tribe show in NYC on Friday, and decides he can make money, so he runs his 20, and when his runs out, Runs my 30. Then, he tells me hes only giving me back the money I gave him to have it filled.

His defense is he was the one to drive to philly, and its not even my tank. Its our neighbors, both the 20 and 30.

I think he owes me a cut. I'm not sure how much, I'm thinkin 50-50 cuz he did do the work BUT he basically stole my gas and made profit off it without even asking or saying a thing until today. I confront him and hes like fine, I'll give you x amount, but thats only 30 bucks more than what it cost to fill it. WTF? Am I wrong here? Should I not be expecting a cut?

He says hes going back to philly this week, but that's not the point. I didn't lend him the money so he could fill em and run em. I gave him money, and that gas was MINE. I see it as him basically stealing my shit, and making money off it, then telling me hes only giving me back the cost.

Am I wrong?

edit: oh, and the neighbor (one who owns the tanks) agrees with me.

And, this is a week after him and my neighbor break into my room and take a bag of K for them to do, they did pay me back but thats not the point.

There's a poll here:

you fronted him cash for gas but he ended up selling your nitrous so you pretty much funded his operation...sounds like a sketchy dude to sell your shit in the first place, and the fact that he isn't willingly breaking ya something off proves he's selfish

the least he can do for screwing ya over like that is to give you a cut...he fucking sold your shit man

thats like you giving me cash for tickets to a show, but i buy the tickets and scalp em for double the price, then just telling ya 'here's your money back, you aren't going to the show because i sold your shit to make myself money'

I see you getting what you put in and then some extra money over top for not having to do anything. That's definitely half-way.

I forgot to mention, he wouldnt have been able to fill the 30 had I not given him money. So he used my money to make profit.

I see both sides of the argument

but at the same time breaking into your room to steal YOUR k sounds like sketchy shit, and for the most part people who do sketchy shit continue to do sketchy shit so i dont know about this one:shrug:

find new roomies?

Hes just 1 roommate of 5 others. I usually dont have a problem with him. Let me tell you tho, when he gets gas into his system, hes a totally different person. VERY bipolar.

Ah, that explains it.  Typical know-it-all noob.  We get a few thousand just like you register here every year.  They try a few grows, fail miserably and then after a few months or one bad trip, go back to sniffing glue, never to be seen again.

We have a basic pf tek that's idiot proof enough for noobs to get fucked up with their friends. 

Mycologists on the other hand grow for the love of growing.  They want to experiment with various species, substrates, and fruiting environments. They'll move on to isolate strains, attempt hybridization, and in general treat cultivation as an artform, rather than a chore that must be performed as a means to an end.  They'll work twice as hard for a ten percent gain, just for the love of perfection.  These are the ones who will isolate strains, not the dumb fucks who treat mushrooms as a drug, or even worse, a pathogen, as if mushrooms cause disease.

Yeah man, I see where you're coming from. It was a dick move of him for sure. But at any rate, you got your money back and even a little extra on the top. I would just take the money and not give it a second thought.

I mean, he probably made a HUGE profit on 50 lbs, he would have only been able to make 40% of what he made had I not given him $$ to have the other filled.

Then you should make him pay to fill up the tank with the profits he made.

Oh..That changes things...

You gave him money to fill tanks, he leaves and makes money off the money you gave him, then comes back without doing what he set out to do?

I suppose he's not entitled to give you anymore than what you paid him, but if he's anything close to a good friend, he should hook you up.
