how to tell possible room mate about grow
    #4106006 - 04/28/05 09:00 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I am moving, and am unsure if I want my own pad or share an apartment with someone else.

Bottom line is this. Met this chick and we really get along well and would have a good arrangment sharing an apartment (2 BR, own br each). Its in the most desired spot, right in the heart of waikiki... Now, what I haven't mentioned to them is my boomie setup. I have two 3.5ft long tubs that each hold three 1ftx1ft casings of boomies. She doesn't know about the grow.

off hand i do not think she would be cool with it. she said she smokes weed sometimes but far from often, and does nothing else. i asked if she did anything else (mentioned the occassional shroom break from reality with buds every so often) and she said no because it seemed too intense or she wouldnt like it... she also wants me to meet the landlord before moving in... its that type of building. I also couldnt have keggers or loud parties, just to give you a feel what type of place it is (lots of old people), though we both like drinking and partying in waikiki.

So, when i see her friday, how should i introduce the grow to her? I need to get it out in the open before we make arrangments if i am to move in before we get that far to see how she feels, i can not sneak it in and wait for her to find out (via all day PC or stumble across in the room for some unknown reason)... im not too sure she would be cool.

So, how would i casually bring the topic up over a pitcher of guinness between the two of us. a "I should tell you i grow boomies" is a bit too blunt for me. Any ideas?

tell her it is a part of your religion.

and then say, "you're open minded about people's religious beliefs, aren't you? you're not a bigot, eh? eh? eh?"

then she'll feel guilty and you can trip your balls off in peace :smile:

If you tell her, she'll know forever. No matter what happens, she'll always know that you grow. Don't. Tell. Anyone. Look at the number of people arrested for growing fungi (pot, synthing chemicals, etc). Rarely it's due to any other reason than someone narcing. People that you love will betray you. Don't. Tell. Anyone. Ever.

Don't associate yourself with mushrooms to anyone you know in real life at all costs. Things can change drastically in the months or years to follow, and the last thing you need is someone who might be resentful running around with the knowledge that you grow shrooms. It's unfortunate it has to be like this, but I really suggest you keep this closet hobby solely to yourself.

Heh, I just broke up with my g/f a few weeks ago when I found out she was cheating on me. I had three quart jars of bird seed with pan cyan mycelia incubating, one 10 gallon of cyans on compost incubating and 1 4qt tray of pan cyans fruiting. Thats hardly anything, clearly it's not a commercial operation. All the mycelia was dumped in a nearby cow field and all of the stuff was cleaned in the dishwasher. Would she narc? Who knows. I'd rather not find out what prison-available materials work for anal lubricant.

Man, Soopa...

Me and my girl split a few weeks ago, too. She knows too much and is vengeful like that. Some edibles went into the compost heap. I don't need any heat or paranoia.

you obviously do not live in the States
where drug laws are draconian and prisons
are filled with offenders. In order
to avoid these charges, one must be secure
and stealth.

I doubt she would be down with a illegal grow operation
in her apartment - I doubt she would even keep it a secret.
Keep in mind, the dude just met the girl.

Sounds like trouble to me.

Another good point. Tell one person a secret and you're really telling ten.

:smile: i lived in the states for the first 17 years of my life... i most definitely know how fucked up the police can be there... i was joking a bit with the whole "you guys are so paranoid" bit. i can most definitely understand the reasons for paranoia. i was also joking with my suggestion to tell her they were for religious purposes. just for the record - i'd keep it supa stealth as well.

now i'm going to go sit in a public park and smoke a joint without a care in the world. :smile:

yea, definetly dont let anyone know..

how many times have you been sitting around with a good friend, and you say to them "you know what XXX told me the other day?" or how many times have you heard "i heard that xxx is yyyyy.... zzz told xxx"

gossip is too juicy to keep to one's self... that's why they call it gossip

IMO roomates are bad in general... they cramp your style, not always completely dependable, etc. If you really want to move in with this chick I would suggest maybe the "I have this friend who does..." (fill in the blank) route. That way.... eh who am I kidding. DON'T DO IT MAN!

Dude...
First off, shes a chick. You cannot trust females, no matter what, unless they are blood relatives.

She sounds like a straight shooter, personally, I wouldn't think it would be a good idea to grow around someone who doesn't like shrooms or drugs in general. If you piss her off enough man... She could narc. Shes a female dude, think about it. Let me just say: HORMONES. Shes a female dude. Females have AN INSTINCTUAL URGE to communicate (AKA GOSSIP) to other females about anything that is on their mind. Seriously dude, I have never known one female who I could trust 100%. Theres this thing that females do... once they know an important secret, its too much for them. They can't keep it to themselves, they have to gossip. They've evolved that way over thousands upon thousands of years.

Trust me on this one bro,
Females gossip. Especially if its something she's not comfortable about, then she'll goto her girlfriends trying to get their opinion. And she can't get their opinion without telling them EVERYTHING.

Trust me bro, if she knows, her friends will know. If her friends know, their friends will know, and their friends will know.

Gossiping is in a females nature.

Just to play devil's advocate, as I'm not sure what I'd do in your situation....

If your sharing a residence w/ her, dont you kind of have a duty to tell her? I mean, if for some reason you did get busted by the police, she could get in trouble too, no? So, isnt it kind of not right to put her at any risk and NOT tell her?

Just my two cents...

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
