I live with my partner in a property that we own and we have been renting a room to a lodger/friend for about 6/7 years. It is a fairly relaxed arrangement.

At the weekend my partner and I came home after a party to find some friends of my lodger doing lines of cocaine in the kitchen...

Both myself and my partner got annoyed and kicked them all out - there was a bit of shouting as my partner had been drinking - but nothing major. I just wanted to check that our response was reasonable and who else to ask but mumsnet...

I wouldn't tolerate it in my home. It is not harmless. I'm not talking about their health, they can do what they like, I mean police, raids, the seedy side of drug culture and all it attracts.

What are you going to do?

It was a shock to see as we walked through the door and seedy is the right word I would use to describe it.

We are aware that he does it every now and again but never would I of thought it would be so blatantly disrespectful. We havent as of yet managed to speak to him and to be honest not sure what we will do.

I can be quite highly strung and definitely not one of the 'cool kids' so just wondered if this was an over reaction.

Sounds reasonable to me (your response). I would have hit the roof if it was in my house,

SparklyMagpie Mon 12-Feb-18 17:32:02

Tbh I would have gone ape shit !!

I would not tolerate that in my house at all

bellsandwhistles89 Mon 12-Feb-18 17:34:09

The roof was well and truly hit.

I think your reaction was a bit OTT - you've known this guy for years. If he did it every weekend that would be different but once in 6-7 years doesn't seem that bad to me. Did he at least offer you a line?

Entirely reasonable. They got off lightly imo.

Surely after 6-7 years he would also know how we feel about drugs, like I said I am aware that he does it, he is well aware how I would react to drugs being done in the kitchen. He also knows if he did it in his room it would of been fine as thats his room.

I wouldn't allow it in his room tbh. It's your house that will be raided or a target for thieves...

I wouldn't allow it in his room either. No bloody way. I would have reacted exactly the way you did OP. All Hell would have been raised.
