Top Ten Worst Things About Older Siblings

I am the youngest of 3 children, and I have to deal with these EVERY DAY. While they can give advice, these can ruin what you like about them.

The Top Ten

1 They always think they're superior

Well they're not. The parents are. Why do oldest sisters act like moms? And it is very annoying when they takeout the anger on you and makes you angry.

She literally said one time that she's more important than me because she's older

My sister does this all the time. And it's SO annoying.

This is untrue

2 They think they know everything about you

My older sibling is so bloody annoying. He thinks I'm scared of the dark just because I slept with the light on by mistake! - ItsDaWorldOfSNuGGLEZ

My sister thinks she knows everything and I'm really embarrassed...

My best friends are called Kerry and Betty but my sister always says to me there called Kelly and Becky I'm like I know ten better than you

I have an older sister who tells me I'm not slick, even when I'm not doing anything wrong. Ugh! So annoying! - Stazemar000

3 Sharing a bedroom

I'm glad I have my own room to myself so I'm better off without any roommates. Whenever I'm at hotels on trips and vacations, I had to share bedrooms all because of the danger and strangers everywhere. I don't like being forced to share bedrooms. Which is what I hate about trips and vacations.

Glad I have my own room.


I'm the older sibling and I don't share bedrooms with my sister, but here are several instances that my parents want to KICK ME OUT OF MY ROOM AND GIVE IT TO HER INSTEAD! >:(

I only share bedrooms at hotels.

4 Playing music you don't like loudly

YES! I have an older sister and she plays music so loudly in her room and laughs so loud whenever looking at stupid posts. All. The. Time. It's SO ANNOYING!

I only have experience with a younger brother, and he does this deliberately to annoy me. I play loud music too, but not things that I know he can't stand. That is, unless I decide to outdo his blasting with louder sound. - PositronWildhawk

My brother knows I hate grime and he plays it so loud and takes the mick out of metal and guess what idiot grime sucks there talentless he just stole my laptop and messed up his exams I'm going to boarding school but because he is an idiot! I JUST WANT HIM TO DIE!

I totally agree. Whenever my brother wants me to leave the room, he spams “All Star” until I leave.
And gosh dang it, if I hear another somebody once told me, I will flip.

5 Living with them

Being an only child is better and easier and I don't even care how lonely it is.

Someday, if I have kids. I would only give birth to one child. ONLY ONE! - Stazemar000

I’m glad my brother is 23 so he moved out. When he lived at our house, he would leave hair in the my sink from shaving and he left his hairdryer in my sink everyday. Plus I barely knew anything about him. I didn’t like him and I’m pretty sure he didn’t like me. The only thing I remember talking to him about was him asking where mom was.

6 They don't let you borrow something they never use

Me: Hey, sis can I borrow your Earphones?

Sister: What For How LONG?!?!?!

Me: Oh, I just wanna listen to a video and plus they are dad's earphones.

Sister: But.. I'm using them

(Sees them lying on the floor)

Me: Oh

My brother does this ALL the time. - Turkeyasylum

I asked my sister that can I use her computer, and she said no. SHE SINT EVEN USING IT! And when I said why, SHE IGNORED ME! - Gabo147

Yeah, because you NEVER RETURN IT - ToptenPizza

7 Altercations between siblings

It's just not fair that annoying, overshadowing sibling rivalries just had to be famous, not infamous.

8 Hogging up your stuff

So true…sorry older sister but I was going to use that. Older Sister: Sure you were, I got here first. Mom: Just let her use, I'm sure it what be that long. Me: What!? So ya…happens to me a lot


9 They tattle-tale on you

This is my younger sister I only tell on her when she tries to pick fights with me - ToptenPizza

This=my younger sister

Younger sister.

Tell me about it -_-

10 They can be really mean


I think it's called child abuse, what my sister does to me. Yeah. It's definitely child abuse. - AnonymousChick

I know of older brothers who just punch them in the face and they are in the hospital with nose stitches. They deserve no mercy

Younger sister

The Contenders

11 They think they rule over you

To quote my sister (shes 15 I'm 13):

"Ok well I'm older than you so I get to use this because I need it more for school and stuff..."

She literally said that right after using the computer to use instagram for an hour and look at her school stuff for like 5 minutes, and she always makes me do things for her and she never does anything for me even when I ask her, the only reason I do them is to stay out of fights

I hate it when my older sister does this. She thinks she can tell me what to do. She needs to know that I'm a growing girl and I can make my own decisions. Just because she's older, that doesn't mean she can take over my life - Stazemar000

I am not the ruler type of older sister. But I do sometimes take my laptop away from her and pretend to search up stuff for homework.

12 They make fun of you for things they compliment others for
13 Expecting you to be just like them

My older sister keeps comparing my interests and decisions to hers and how I should be like her when I'm her age. Well, guess what? That's not gonna work for me - Stazemar000

Bit late for me to expect that of my younger brother. I have no control over his life choices. - PositronWildhawk

Hell nah to the nah nah nah - Andyman1234

14 They think they're better then you because they're older

Exactly. I am the tallest in my family, and also the youngest. In car rides with the 5 of us, I am forced to sit in the middle because I'm the youngest (they need to remember I am taller, so I need the space). - Turkeyasylum

I have to sit in the middle all the time:/ the middle child should sit in the middle

My sister thinks she's a lot better than everyone! She never shuts up about it.

Nah, my sister thinks she's better than me because she's younger - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

15 They treat you like a loser

To my sister:

Ugh, who's the one that practices art every day and WHO'S THE ONE THAT WATCHES BORING REALITY SHOWS, IDLE DRAMA, AND LISTENS TO STUPID MUSIC?!?!?!?

Your younger sister (victim)

I don't do this as the oldest daughter... - MLPFan

Other way around for me - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I am the older brother and if I do this I see myslef doing it (i regret it)

17 They're bossy

One time I was sitting doing my homework, then my sister comes and says, go and wash the plates, and I had lots of homework, so I say not I can't do it, then she says she's busy too, because she procrastinated her homework, and chores, then she beats me up and forces me to wash them, then I leave, and go to my room to continue my homework, then I overheard her saying I'm selfish and lazy, what, later she gives me the silent treatment

18 They think they can take control of you because they're older

My best friend is blackmailed by her sister. "Charge my phone for me or I'll ban your Animal Jam account! "

Biggest one for me - Stazemar000

19 They stain the clothes and then you get them later.

I always hated this about growing up. My older brother was a messy slob and he always got stains on his clothes, and I was the neat one but I had to wear his stained clothes as hand-me-downs. It sucked.

I never get hand me downs, my parents can afford to buy me new clothes

20 They can't take a joke
21 They are hypocrites

Followed by denying that they’re hypocrites and putting all of the blame on you. - 3DG20

Older Sister: Big fat stupid Baby!
Me: Jerkass!
Older sister: MOM! She's calling me names!

22 They brag too much

Please don't rub it in. I would brag to you but I don't think you would like it. I'm just trying to be nice

Most definitely…I said thaT she bragged once(when she was bragging) but she just looked at me in a weird way. So I don't know if she will brag anymore. Just confront it, I do it all the time

23 They move away for college

Really if you're going to leave me what was the point in the first place and the worst is when your left with another who's an awful older brother. Sigh, he'll get it eventually

This s GOOD! I'll be sighing in relief once my older brother, who is 20, to go off to college - 906389

This is a good thing. - AnonymousChick

My sister moved away in August (which was 2 months ago) and I was actually happy that I got more freedom from being pushed-around so much.

When I found out before my 9th grade year ended, she told me she was leaving for college in August. in my head, I was like... "When that day comes, it'll be the best day ever! " - Stazemar000

24 They think you are trying to be like them

When I was eleven I didn't want stuffed animals anymore and my older sister said stop trying to be a 16 year old like her. And I was like, I just don't want stugged animals

25 They think they are smarter than you
26 Beating up on younger siblings

Every time I don't listen to my annoying brother! He keeps on saying "I'll beat you", even his stuff breaks but I'm not the one who did it he will beat me :'c

27 They think they're the the boss of you and they rub it in your face

So true - Stazemar000

28 They always get shotgun

When I get a car in the future, I'll tell her "My car! My rules! " - Stazemar000

I don't even have a car.

29 They break your stuff

Not only younger siblings do this

30 They hate on things you like, meanwhile they like similar things.

My life in one sentence.

31 They use sarcasm on you

My sister uses a lot of sarcasm on me. YEP! - Stazemar000

32 They listen to loud music

My older brother is OBSESSED with Eminem. He listens to it every day and even as I type this he is listening to it. I don't hate Eminem, but I'm getting a little tired of this. - FluffyBanana

33 They think they're so smart
34 They think they're 100% more awesome than you.

Yeah, Always been told you're not cool but I am

35 They act like another parent

Older sisters act like moms and older brothers act like dads! What the heck (frowny face) - Stazemar000

36 They scold you for being "selfish" when you ask to borrow something for a second
37 They're selfish
38 They tickle you if they get a chance

I have a older brother. We have two separate rooms but we sleep together. Sometimes if he is bored of if I feel so sleepy and tickle me to wake me up or to entertain himself because he us bored. My midsection it the only ticklish spot I have and it's so easy to tickle me.

39 Heavy handed

I have a older brother that hits our little sister, me, and our little brother, I have to admit, he does gets in trouble for that
