Is it wrong for me to say this to my roommate? I already don't like him, and he caught me smoking pot and he's not OK with it. He said he'll call the cops if I do it again in our apartment. He is, however, OK with our underage roommate breaking the law by underage drinking. Hypocritical much? So would it be wrong for me to say to him "if I have to follow the rules, so does our underage roommate. And like you told me you're not going to be nice about it if you catch me again, I'm not going to be nice about it with him. I'm just going to call the police, so if you decide I can't smoke pot, you better warn him to not underage drink here. Either we can both break the rules or we both have to follow them. But you can't pick and choose which laws you obey" That way it puts him in an awkward position. I'm forcing him to enforce the same rules he's tries to enforce with me on our roommate. And our roommate isn't going to be happy that he can't invite his friends over and throw parties. Just like I'm not too happy that my roommate is telling me to go elsewhere to smoke. Sorry, but you get caught outside. --- i've been told i am in the right. i've also been told that all 3 of us are in the wrong, me for smoking, our underage roommate for drinking, and him for caring about this but not that. my heart says yes and no. i guess the more i dwell on it, instead of just letting it go, the more i think i should let it go. would it be worth making things worse? can things even get worse? my heart says it makes sense. i'm in the right. but no at the same time. and my mind wants to tell the condescending hypocritical bastard off.... you punish me then we're all punished. selfish, maybe. but i'm tired putting number 1 second all the time. i've put other people before me so long and kharma chops off my testicals. in a world where everyone is so self centered, is it wrong for me to be selfish?
