    ...am i just been too accommodating to my sis? - last week i did her a huge favour which thinking about it...i don't think many people would do for there sister.

    we met up last week in the trafford centre in the afternoon after she had finished 6th form (she is 17 and in 6th form, I am 19 and at uni) - she had come from 6th form so was still wearing her uniform - while we were there she met up with some friends - they decided they wanted to go to the cinema and get something to eat... only she was in uniform and they were not...so my sis asks me if i would swap clothes with her so she could go out - we are the same size. - well since she has only just started at this 6th form and making friends has been difficult i though okay - you owe me big time but whatever - so we swapped clothes in the loo's - she went out and i went home (didnt fancy walking round the trafford centre in my sis's school uniform for some reason!) - thats a BIG favour in my book!

    now a week later she's been moody and arsy again. i'm not wanting her to be always greateful - but just not been arsy would be nice!

    ..i recon that was a BIG favour...or am i just been too nice really..

    That isn't a very big favour, no. Giving her a Kidney would be considered a big favour. It's not like she's going to radically change her views of you just 'cause you did that.

    Sounds like a typical sibling relationship, just remind her what you did that day if she's being a brat.

    i would never do that. Swap clothes with someone else. I'll tell the person to leg back home and change themselves.

    no... it's just what i'd normally do and what others would normally do.

    Seriously even if they're the same size i'd tell that person to get clothes from the house and then go with them. Her friends weren't in a rush were they?

    hmm, it was really nice of you and shes owes you, but unfortunately this is just the way sisters work. it was kinda bad of her to just leave you when she saw her friends (if this is what happened).

    next time shes arsey with you tell her you arent helpin her out again just to shut her up lol
    ...i choose to go after we swapped clothes! didn't want to go shopping wearing her uniform - made me feel quite self concious!

    I'm sure - but if you look at it in third person, it isn't really that huge a favour, although I'm sure she'd have been quite grateful.

    Odd favour, but not a huge one in my book. It's now a week later - if she had been rude or difficult a few hours later, that would have been unreasonable, but I don't expect people to tip-toe around me a week after I did something nice for them.

    I would have done that for my sister. I'm sure many would! :confused:
    And if she was still being gushingly sweet a week later I'd have told her to get over it and be herself. :yep:

    Also, you said 'doing' in your thread title. I was expecting some long list of favours.

    ..i guess there is alot more really since she moved in with me (we share a flat since she left home due to not been able to stand our mother any longer ). - i feel a bit like a mother sometimes at the moment.

    ...just felt like a big thing really at the time - her uniform is a traditional uniform - shirt, tie, skirt, blazer - once we had swapped i felt really self concious walking round the Trafford centre dressed like that (i am nearly 20)

    Why could she not have worn her school uniform?
    It's not as if her friends haven't seen her in it before.

    And no, it wasn't a massive favour. For some reason, the first time I read it I assumed you were boy - then it would have been quite something..but now..not so much.

    Oh! Well, that alone should make her show a little respect to you! Perhaps suggest she could go back home to your mum if she's finding it difficult to be in a decent mood with you.
    Aww, it's nice that you let her live with you. That's more of a big favour that swapping clothes!
