Siblings – non negotiable, sweet, yet totally annoying beings stuck with us for life; they’re right there to hold your hand, hug and comfort you when it seems like all hell is about to break loose, but don’t get it twisted, they can also be the very definition of a major pain in the ass determined to drive you nuts! And yes, they know just the right buttons to press too! Got siblings? Here are 9 things we bet you can relate to:
You always had an alibi to backup all your lies: Each time you sneaked out of the house, didn’t do those chores…your sibling was your ever present backup.
Death stare/ side eye language: Each time you went out with your older sibling and decided to embarrass the life of them, they gave you “the eyes”- automatically you find yourself adjusting real quick.
The word “Mine” doesn’t exist: From your clothes to designer perfumes, wristwatches, shades plus those hidden snacks, if any sibling wanted any, they knew just where to get it. In fact, most people thought you were the one doing the stealing because they probably used your clothes a dozen times.
Free errand goers for life: Now that’s cool! You always had someone who would run all your errands at absolutely no cost all, just a few, okay no lying – major grumbling, but who cared, anyway! lol
Secrets – delicious secret weapons! Right from childhood every sibling understood the art of blackmail. Yes, they’ll keep your secret when you sneak out to see your boyfriends… but be careful though, nothing is ever free.
Fight over the remote: It’s only natural this happens; when you’ve got a guy and a girl in the same house, football and Telemundo must compete.
Zero privacy: Really annoying especially when it comes to older siblings; they barge into your room whenever they damn please without any explaination whatsoever! “After all they’ve seen every aspect of you while watching you grow” *side eyes* lol
Inbuilt babysitters: Have siblings? All you have to do is just pop those kids out, bribe your siblings with some “side attractions” and voila! You’re free for life! -or not? lol
Celebrity status or not you still land the dishes: You could be Wizkid for all they care, if it’s your turn to do the dishes, you’re going to do it alright. “Just roll the damn sleeves!”
Seriously though, let’s face it- in the end, although siblings may come with many headaches and all, they are life long best friends you can totally count on. Nice huh?
