I have a 15 year old brother. He can be unbelievably nice and helpful to me sometimes but we've basically fought once a day ever since he was born. Usually over something petty.
He annoys me to hell and back! He has friends round, makes a mess and doesn't clean it up, and then I get yelled at for not cleaning it up - hello, whatever happened to cleaning up after yourself?! I can manage it perfectly fine! Then yesterday mum asked us both to clean our rooms and because I have to literally empty everything out of mine, she asked him to do housework. What does he do? He buggers off out all day with friends, comes home at 11pm, and I get yelled at for not doing the housework.
He's taller and stronger than me and so thinks he can push me around, he constantly insults me and when I take it personally he claims he was joking and it's like ....
no you weren't. Whenever he gets stroppy and grumpy he uses the excuse "I'm a teenager, I'm allowed" - no, just no. He ALWAYS has to start an argument over something. The other week he was talking about minimum wage and said that under 16s have a minimum wage of £3.57 - no, that's 16 - 18, I think I would know - and even after showing him the direct.gov.uk page he still insisted I was wrong. No. Fool. He plays on his xbox all day and has friends round so he can avoid tidying his room (because it's antisocial to tidy when you have people over, obviously
) and he is just generally a complete pain in the arse.
However, despite all this, he is my brother, and he helps me out a lot and is there for me whenever I need it, and whenever mum gets all stroppy and angry we always stick together.
