Stop being such a douche for one.

Maybe you should smoke with your son, and then you can understand why it's such a hit (pun intended).

I can't stand fathers like you.


Just the sort of blinkard, philistine pig ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage...

(Always wanted to say that) That's fine and dandy, I'm an authoritarian asshole, great, fine I accept that, I was not handed everything on a platter, but don't you pothead sensitive type slackers realize that these fucked up female'ish "my ffewlings are hurt" attitudes are gonna lead to a shitty, poor, dependent life? I mean fuck, the USA is going 100% turd world, people cant be leaches here ANY more. The price of failure in the turd world is DEATH. Nobody is gonna feed yer sorry asses don't you get it? you can't go through life thinking that all you gotta think about is the next days events. I just don't get it, I made 600 bucks a month in the Army when I joined. I saved it ALL I had 65 grand in the bank when I got out all I thought about was the future, I know that most you here are pothead loser types, thats why I'm tryin to get a handle on this defeatist attitude you have. Is it the drug? I mean can it be reversed? how long does it take for that "pothead laugh" (as Dr. Drew describes it) take to go away?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 802891


Maybe if you could look past YOUR OWN BELIEFS you could have a relationship with your son, and who knows... maybe if he can see a decent human being in you he wont purposely rebel against everything you say just to spite you.

Also it aint the drug, not everyone wants to live your life.
Can you see that? Or do you need a smoke to see it?

You are just a negative person. Many olympic swimmers have been known to smoke weed btw. Not just phelps. So, weed didn't stop him from making the olympics, it probably has more to do with you.

Wow, I'd stop trying to live vicariously through my child.

If you'd stop worrying about how perfect you are, and how your kid just doesn't live up, you might be able to step back and look at WHO he is for WHO is he and not WHAT he's done.

It would do good to see yourself this way too. Take a fucking load off.

You got a problem in life?

You got two choices.

1. Fix it.

OR

2. Shut the fuck up about it.

Your only choice for fixing it is to throw him out.

He has a job. Let him find out how much it costs to stay out of the rain and fed on his own. You owe him nothing since the minute he turned 18.

This is the only thing that will work.

Otherwise, he is obviously more in control of how he lives in your home than you are and all of your bitching and moaning isn't changing a thing.

So you can either throw him out or shut the fuck up about it.

Oh and smarty pants up there with the comment about him having more fun than me? Fuck you you retarded fuck, I've done 6 static line jumps and 30 free fall and several HALO's a couple in COMBAT(not fun)- Fun don't get much funner than that. I've flown aircraft (not alicensed pilot, I've skied St moritz, I fired all manner of small arms, I own a 65 Cobra replica with a 500HP engine (VERY FUN), I smoke cigars, I drink McCALLAn scotch, I hunt deer, ducks, turkey and pig every year in various states (fun)I angle from Kayak in California and Alaska, I ride dirtbikes in Nevada and Ca all of these things are fun, but they require more than the wilolingness to imbibe cheap drugs.

You pathetic cunt of a drug addict. You kill more animals in your trips to the drive through than I kill in 1 year of hunting. Oh and BTW the meat in my freezer is extremely low fat, hormone and antibiotic free. What's that on your feet? Leather? Oh but you didnt "kill anything" to get those shoes, right? You pathetic, hypocritical dip shit loser. What is wrong with all of you? I would not begrudge a man to smoke pot or any other plant on this earth IF he was responsible in his own life. That means "self sufficient" a concept you all seem to have so much difficulty with; you angry little cretins, libertarians like me don't give a shit what you put in yer bodies as long as it doesnt affect other people. All drugs should be legal, that way darwin can take over where your brains left off. Don't you get it? you are too stupid and undisciplined to handle drugs AND a productive life. You are irresponsible, uneducated and therfore should not be allowed to do drugs until you are able to do so responsibily without cost to society at large.

When i joined, yes i did believe i was fighting for something important, but it didnt take long to realize that Reagan's admonition to stopp the commies "before they get to Harlingen TX" was bullshit cover for the drug trade and suporting US multinationals like United fruit in Central Am.. Green Berets were KILLED by YOUR government for exposing some of this shit and all you candy ass libtards care about is demonizing honorable men. It made the papers, it made congressional hearings (CIA sponsored drug trafficking), we saw the pallets on the c-130's. We thought surely the american people" have enough info to act on, but yet it continues! Corruption on a vast scale you cannot even imagine! WHY do you think they killed Pat Tillman? He woke up early, but he was naive enough to expose his intentions in his letters home. They fucking wacked him like a diseased dog. That's how they role and it's (collectively) YOUR FAULT. Military MEN take an oath and must follow orders, we didnt have the luxury of doing anything about it while in uniform. I am not using the nuremberg excuse, but while under oath/contract to uncle sam there is little we can do. After discharge however I told YOU (or poeple LIKE you) and was ridiculed. No one believes that the US government would load pallets of drugs on US MIL MAC flights, fly them to mena, AR where your former libtard president assisted in their orderly dispostion in the USGOV sponsored narcotic logistic chain I failed with my son. I know that, but I am damn sure it wasnt because I 'pressured him to join" I wanted him to go to a 4 year school- and then consider joining, at the very most I wanted him to be an officer IF he joined. I ave him all the toys I wanted, but couldnt afford, that was my mistake, he doesnt and probobly never will appreciate anything,

The funniest thing is; you fucking retarded potheads and drug users, by your veryown filthy habits and addictions, FUND the very evil machine of US GOV military hegemony you claim to despise! It's so insane, you have to laugh, you direct venom at me as something you despise, WHILE YOU FUND AND KEEP ALIVE THE VERY BEAST YOU DESCRIBE!! by spending your pathetic little lives consuming expensive "illegal" drugs. Whaddya think of that? Your pathetic 100 dolla a day habit goes straight to bloodthirsty CIA and CIA sponsored regimes.

Have you pot addled morons noticed the increase in "H" on the street? Do you think it's a fucking coincidence that the US mil is currently centered on the country/climate that provides 90% of the worlds opiates??? But yer gonna ridicule some old staff sargeant??

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
My kids are 8 and 11 years old, so I haven't been there as far as these issues go, but here's my two cents:

It's no time to be joining the military. Now they send you to Afghanistan, stop-loss you when you want to leave, and you get totally f'ed up by depleted uranium (I know this is in Iraq, not sure about Afghanistan), injections, and fighting a war that the local population does not support. It's not like when you were in the service.

But you don't need to enable his selfishness. Charge him rent. If he refuses to pay, put him out I guess. But if he's trying hard to find a job and still cannot, then relent. It's a very tough job market now.

And if he wants a car, he can pay for it, insure it, repair it etc. He's got to snap out of it and take responsibility or take the consequences. Unfortunately you cannot rely on the military to teach him that, because these days they will just destroy him.

Good luck. These are not times when there's always a reasonable course of action. They are not fair times. We're all just trying to get through them.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Dad,
I'm 20 years old. I have a job. Do you know how many don't have jobs? I have one. Does that mean anything? It doesn't pay what you think I should make, but I perform an important service, cooking for others, delivering their food.

It gives me money to do what I want. Do you know what I want, Dad? Do you care what I want?

I don't want to join the military. I think it's wrong to kill people because someone tells me to.

So I smoke a little, snort a little. I want to enjoy life and not think about all the problems, the wrongs, the injustice, the hypocrisy.

Sure I've been busted for drugs. I don't think the laws are fair, necessary, or even legal. Should I set out to change that? Would that embarrass a military man?

Do you see what the world is like? How long will it go on? Wouldn't you like to enjoy it while it lasts?

I don't save. Why should I give the bank my money, knowing they may steal it like they've stolen everything else they can get their hands
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 787912


The first part is OK, except that his drug use is leading him to be dependent when he should be independent.

"I don't save" why should I when I can leach off Mom and Dad. That part isn't OK. How unkind, he's stealing some of the financial security his parents have built up over their lifetimes. And he knows it and doesn't care, or doesn't know it and is an idiot. In either case this situation should not continue another minute.

every man in this world DESERVES at least the land to sustain his life. if you didn't provide for any land for your son, then you are a selfish self-serving irresponsible asshole that pops out kids without accountability, just to serve their meat to the system.

DONT HAVE KIDS IF YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO GIVE THEM ENOUGH LAND TO SURVIVE UPON! I'M 45 ... get him some land and THEN give him the boot ... you should at least provide him land to sustain himself, a place he can grow food and build a home. that is a much better investment than college.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
My answer, which echoes some of the best advice from the other posters here, is to let him face reality. Let him fail. Give him an ultimatum: shape up or ship out.

I joined the Air Force after I graduated high school. I was a satellite operator which was some of the most rewarding work I have ever done. After I separated I had a hard time finding a job (5 years ago or so). Some friends supported me for a while, but I grew lazy, and did not do much. So, I found myself homeless when I was 26. I got myself together, and got myself a good job working on computers. Now, I have a rewarding job working as a Unix System Administrator (Linux has been a hobby of mine since I was 16). Your son's path may be different than mine, but the important thing is to get him started down it.

Calling your son a loser is not necessary. Nor is letting him stay in his current rut. It is a false dichotomy. Love, however, is necessary. Not all love is soft, some of it is tough. You want your son to succeed. In order to do that, you need give him the chance to fail. He is an adult now...treat him like one.

This is not pop psychology, but what wise men have known for centuries. From the Discourses of Epictetus:

"To those who fall off from their purpose

Consider as to the things which you proposed to yourself at first, which you have secured and which you have not; and how you are pleased when you recall to memory the one and are pained about the other; and if it is possible, recover the things wherein you failed. For we must not shrink when we are engaged in the greatest combat, but we must even take blows. For the combat before us is not in wrestling and the Pancration, in which both the successful and the unsuccessful may have the greatest merit, or may have little, and in truth may be very fortunate or very unfortunate; but the combat is for good fortune and happiness themselves. Well then, even if we have renounced the contest in this matter, no man hinders us from renewing the combat again, and we are not compelled to wait for another four years that the games at Olympia may come again; but as soon as you have recovered and restored yourself, and employ the same zeal, you may renew the combat again; and if again you renounce it, you may again renew it; and if you once gain the victory, you are like him who has never renounced the combat. Only do not, through a habit of doing the same thing, begin to do it with pleasure, and then like a bad athlete go about after being conquered in all the circuit of the games like quails who have run away.

"The sight of a beautiful young girl overpowers me. Well, have I not been overpowered before? An inclination arises in me to find fault with a person; for have I not found fault with him before?" You speak to us as if you had come off free from harm, just as if a man should say to his physician who forbids him to bathe, "Have I not bathed before?" If, then, the physician can say to him, "Well, and what, then, happened to you after the bath? Had you not a fever, had you not a headache?" And when you found fault with a person lately, did you not do the act of a malignant person, of a trifling babbler; did you not cherish this habit in you by adding to it the corresponding acts? And when you were overpowered by the young girl, did you come off unharmed? Why, then, do you talk of what you did before? You ought, I think, remembering what you did, as slaves remember the blows which they have received, to abstain from the same faults. But the one case is not like the other; for in the case of slaves the pain causes the remembrance: but in the case of your faults, what is the pain, what is the punishment; for when have you been accustomed to fly from evil acts? Sufferings, then, of the trying character are useful to us, whether we choose or not."

Finally, a scene that was personally meaningful to me while homeless:

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Are you still there? How is your son doing? I am sorry for all those nasty posts people put out there. I understand your concern. I know it's very difficult to watch you child make poor choices. It's one thing to not be a planner or be that ambitious when you are young. I can understand wanted to enjoy your youth and not be that forward thinking. But the drugs is a different challenge.
I'd love to hear how he is now and how you are too.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
It sounds like your son, apart from having fun, is rejecting your advice, I would guess, largely because he does not want to become a squared-away military/banking type like you.

That isn't too hard to understand, is it?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 804607


No, it isn't.

But what is HARD to UNDERSTAND is why
an able bodied ADULT is sponging off someone else.

Charge him rent for starters.
Don't give him any money.
If he wrecks his car, he can take public transportation.
If he brings drugs in your house, kick him out.

Sometimes the hard lessons are the most valuable.
And sometimes they never get learned at all.

I'm sorry- you sound like a good sort.
But it sounds like your son is manipulating you.
Just telling it like it is.

He is more than capable of doing more for himself.
His past achievements prove that.
Anyway, good luck whatever you choose to do.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
Don't smoke with your son. Only pot heads want to stick up for pot heads. A better idea is we should send all the pot heads to this guys house so he can smoke out with them all the time and they can hang out with him and do nothing but eat his food, shit and smoke "The Great Un-motivator" all the time, then.....wake up the next day....and do it again............and the next day...........and the next day. This guy obviously doesn't mind taken care of all the special needs of really cool people that like to smoke pot AND DO NOTHING ELSE ALL DAY EVERYDAY!!
After all, smoking pot is not immature, it just helps you to relax.......right? (of course, it helps you relax all day the damn time!! like a frickin' Zombie!!!!) Well buddy, you better go get a whole bunch of it then, cause when all these pot heads end up at your door, you're gonna need it!!!

OH, and I also want to say this: I cannot wait until YOUR generation is wiped off the face of this planet. It is YOUR generations fault we are in this current predicament.

The world will be a much better place.

I agree with the quote above. OUR generation is screwed. People don't read anymore. OUR generation is turning out to be the worst trifecta: fat, stupid, and lazy. People my age sit in front of the television all day and the world is passing them by. Next thing you know; you will be looking in the mirror and wondering where the time went. I am not a military war veteran and I am not a stoner hippie wasting time. I am a realist with goals and objectives to accomplish in my life.

I am 23, on a full scholarship for track/XC at a University. I run 60-70 miles a week. I'm getting great grades. and I am working 20 hours a week. I am anything but lazy. And I have pothead roommates; so I kind of know what you deal with.

I would recommend you (the father) spend more time with your son and get to understand his views on life and where his struggles are currently. Do things together: grocery shopping, movies, plays, and video games. Anything that influence him to change his ways. DO NOT point out his screw ups; as this could affect his judgement and make him smoke more weed in spite of you. DO NOT put military pressure or any of that chauvinistic crap on him; as this also could complicate things and create needless drama within the family.

I hope this helps.

Stop being such a douche for one.

Maybe you should smoke with your son, and then you can understand why it's such a hit (pun intended).

I can't stand fathers like you.


Just the sort of blinkard, philistine pig ignorance I've come to expect from you non-creative garbage...

(Always wanted to say that) That's fine and dandy, I'm an authoritarian asshole, great, fine I accept that, I was not handed everything on a platter, but don't you pothead sensitive type slackers realize that these fucked up female'ish "my ffewlings are hurt" attitudes are gonna lead to a shitty, poor, dependent life? I mean fuck, the USA is going 100% turd world, people cant be leaches here ANY more. The price of failure in the turd world is DEATH. Nobody is gonna feed yer sorry asses don't you get it? you can't go through life thinking that all you gotta think about is the next days events. I just don't get it, I made 600 bucks a month in the Army when I joined. I saved it ALL I had 65 grand in the bank when I got out all I thought about was the future, I know that most you here are pothead loser types, thats why I'm tryin to get a handle on this defeatist attitude you have. Is it the drug? I mean can it be reversed? how long does it take for that "pothead laugh" (as Dr. Drew describes it) take to go away?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 802891



WOW you have control and anger issues and he is trying to numb himself from you, he's prolly heard your rant forever and doesn't want to be like you. You sound like a master complainer. He does not have to accept that, sounds like he depises you, can you blame him ? if you weren't so controlling you would not have fucked everything up I hate those overcontolling parents in sports or school- they fuck their own kids heads up !

Should have been talking to him way before he was a teen and spending better time with him instead of controlling; the straighter the parent the more fucked up the kids turn out for some reason.

Too bad you fucked up as a father; get into counselling, help yourself first.
Get him to move out and stop dealing with his "problems" you are one of them, just shut up for awhile and introspect.

Re: My son is a total pothead loser slacker, what should I do?
I doubt he would escape reality through drugs & games if his home environment was a pleasant one. Don't assume that the world you provide him with through your money & other assets is the ideal one for him. Perhaps you need to check your pride at the door and show him some true love instead of emotionally abusing him until the cord that is holding the relationship between him and yourself is cut for good. Prideful people always like to blame something else besides themselves.
