Well perfect! "Look, it's either clean up your room or make a movie with Mister Cloppity. And seriously, watch your teeth this time! Poor horsie!"
If that's not discipline I don't know what is. Plus, additional revenue stream!
Hmmmm I have 2 boys. I can tell you that it is getting harder and harder to get my 11 yr old to do anything. He is too busy being a socialite and hanging around with friends in person or on the computer. He has a paper route (just our street 40 houses) I have to tell him about 5-6 times to get on it. He has really been trying my patience these days. My 7 yr old is the complete opposite. I wish I could freeze him right now before he starts with this bullshit too lol.
Hey, you're still around!
I am indeed. I once said that appeals to my vanity were my one weakness... it seems you've found another one. Don't tell anybody!
I do think gender makes a difference, sadly.
All of my male friends have younger female sisters who are now about 16-20 years old. Each and every one of them is driving our respective parents up the wall. Whether it being having a freak out at a family reunion; regularly screaming at the parents; taking money at remarkable rates; leaving school because of issues with boys... essentially just, as the Chinese would put it, not displaying one ounce of filial piety.
Fuck, I moved to China and my parents are still more worried about/angry at my sister than myself.
About 4 months ago my mom had major surgery that left her bed-ridden for about 6 weeks. On the day after the surgery, a Saturday, my sister had promised to come see my mom for the day. Now, my sister lives about 25 minutes away from our parents. Did she show up? No. What was her given excuse? Oh, I forgot. Okay, so why didn't you answer your phone all day? Oh, I didn't notice your calls. Uh-huh... Well, how about next week, seeing as your father will be spending a week straight caring for mother and might want a break for a few hours? Sure!!!
Flash to next Friday. My mom calls me and I ask when sister will be coming over the next day and what movies my mom got, etc. My mom tells me "Your sister called 5 minutes ago (10:00 friday night) to tell us that she's going up to a cottage with her friends for the weekend, so she can't make it."
Jesus. The last time my mom had surgery it was the same ordeal. I came back from Montreal to Toronto to help with my mom while my sister didn't even stop by for dinner.
And my parents were really unbelievably wonderful to both her and I all our lives. Yes they had their bad moments like most people, but that was far from the majority. But from some completely inexplicable reason my sister has decided that she is going to treat them like absolute shit.
Tyler: Did you ever ask your sister what was wrong? The reason may not be inexplicable.
Every time something like that happens my sister's answer for what was wrong is one of the following:
(i) leave me alone
(ii) I'm an adult I can make my own decisions
(iii) What, I'm not allowed to have a good life because mom's sick?
(iv) something about a boy
(v) shut up
She was spoiled growing up and has been self-centered for about four years now. My parents think, and I hope, that she will grow out of it before too long.
They've given her - and myself - every opportunity in life. They've always been supportive, if not sometimes annoying. (That said, I'm sure we were much more annoying as kids). They've essentially sacrificed as much as they could to make our lives better. My sister just doesn't see it the same way. She views them entirely as a nuisance.
I'm not sure I could see someone who has paid my entire way through life, supported and paid for most of my education and gone along with every one of my ridiculous life choices (which they've done for her as well) as a nuisance.
Short story to prove a point...
A week before I was planning to leave for China my sister was supposed to be moving apartments. On the Monday my mom called my sister to say that the move could only be done with my dad, her and me on Saturday - two days before I was to leave. My sister acknowledged that and said okay.
Flash forward to Thursday and my sister calls my mom. "Mom, my friend is going to Vegas for a while and.... well.... she said I could come along..." Okay Macey, when is the trip to Vegas. "We leave tomorrow and get back on Wednesday." Um. Macey... You're supposed to move on Saturday. And Tyler leaves on Tuesday. So... how do you plan on working this? "Well, I thought since you guys were going to help anyway, you could just move for me. And Tyler can wait a few more days to leave, right?"
So my Mom, being the wonderful woman she is, told me that it was my decision if I wanted to help her out as well as delay my trip (thus forcing me to start work 1 day after my flight landed and not getting to spend any time in Hong Kong or adjust to time difference before beginning a job). Of course, my mom being the wonderful woman she is, I couldn't leave her and my father to do all the work. So I reluctantly agreed to help out.
The next day my sister calls my mom from the airport. "Um, Mom... school starts two days after I get back from Vegas so I don't think I'll have time to paint my room. Could you guys take care of that? Thanks! Oh, my plane is leaving now, I have to run."
Two months later I got an e-mail from my sister: "Oh, thanks for helping me move."
So you'll have to excuse me if I don't come running to my sister's defense.
yeah, i have a sister like that and it was hell growing up with her, she was mummies little diamond! couldn't do anything (until recently that is)
she is always saying, when we get into a fight which is a regular thing even now, we live 150 miles away from each other, "i am an adult and i am allowed to make decisions for me and my family" not when your a complete irresponsible jack ass your not!
the main reason i dont like my sister:
when i lived in Plymouth, she had her first child, and she came around to see me and my boyfriend (now husband) and he hapless jack ass husband put up one of those baby swings you put on the door frame and even after me and my boyfriend saying "no, no, dont put it there, the carpet isnt down properly she will cut her foot" (we were in the middle of decorating) well the idiots said its ok and put the child in the swing, so they then lifted the swing high into the air and pushed the child, so the child cut her foot, and i mean fairly badly, and my sister and her husband told the baby of for crying!!
then that same summer, theylet the baby sleep in the middle of the day in just its nappy in its pram, and the poor thing burnt, so what did they do, they put vinegar on it!
but still she couldnt do anything wrong!!
