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

My brother acts like he is better at everything then me. I'm 14 and he's 17. Yes, his math and science is better, but my English and geography is better. He refuses to ask for help with anything from me because "I'm the stupid younger kid" (His exact words)

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.

My Sister always thought she is the superior in our family and she thought I am just an adopted child who's raised by no one. She never cares about me.

That's exactly what my older sister is. She thinks she's older, she's always right and treats me like trash or something

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!

As oldest I don't want to know anything about my brother. I have two younger brothers, sometimes it is torture.

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

Trust me, as an older sibling, I quite often have no idea what my brother's doing when I'm not around.

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.

Sometimes your parents understand you need your own room…sometimes they don't

I WISH I HAD MY OWN ROOM

4 Playing music you don't like loudly

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 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.

I have an older sister who is currently in college right now. When she used to live at my house, she would put on really loud music at night. I could hear it coming from my room. Thank god that's over!

My oldest sister can drive, so the radio is hers. Unfairly, when the music is full-blast, I ask to turn it down and all she says is "ITS NOT THAT LOUD DEAL WITH IT! " (It's very loud)

5 Living with them

My sister is obviously emo, for example;
1. She wears all black band tee shirts, and black ripped jeans with checkered shoes (checkered shoes that used to be mine but she stole them! )
2. She wears black around her eyes when putting on make up
3. When we were getting our hair cut I got the usual, brown highlights, short hair (the short hair was a new thing I was trying so I guess it wasn't the usual.) She went into the chair and showed the stylist what she wanted I was getting some texture added to my hair and she came out of the chair with black hair (she had blonde hair.) She also had the bangs they have, strange combination. My mom started screaming and she said "relax, don't be such a buzz kill women." Women... WOMEN!?
4. She blasts the music in her room, I've lost track of how many times I've heard "CRAWLING IN MY SKINN! "
5. She also never hangs out with the family anymore, I miss my older sister who was funny and kind and sweet. When we were hanging up ...more

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

Oh no buddy. Trust me, it's not. I have to simulate being one, since my sisters are gone, and it feels like hell.

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

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.

My brother never lets me use the computer until it broked

Yeah, because you NEVER RETURN IT

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

They are like a second mom.

This=my younger sister

Tell me about it -_-

10 They can be really mean

My sister first wouldn't let me go into my room because the T.V. was in there. I couldn't be in there for more than 2 minutes. And we have separate rooms! Then my dad moved it into the living room, which is the first room you pass through. My sister fussed at me for laughing at a joke on a show!

My sister thinks she is my 3rd parent it's so annoying that is why I said I hope she never gets in to college or get a job and become poor.

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

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

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

My brother is a year older than me and because of this he sometimes thinks he gets to play "Dad". No, that is not how that works. So annoying.

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 Expecting you to be just like them

My sister thinks because we’re twins, we should be the same (e.g. being as smart as her). NO, EVEN WE ARE TWINS WE ARE DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND WILL NEVER BE THE SAME

Seeing the path my older brother's life has gone down, his whole expectation of me makes no sense at all. He's also such a moral crusader who likes to talk to me about when I'm rude when he's just as rude if not a trillion times worse.

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

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

13 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).

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

14 They treat you like a loser

Two of them do this. Boys can like art, politics and learning. Have ADHD and see weird stuff. Not be on sports teams and do pong and hike and tennis instead. Welcome to the 20th century,thank god for the other three

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

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

Other way around for me

15 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

16 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

17 They make fun of you for things they compliment others for
18 They think they are smarter than you

My sister takes pride in this and always tells others how she's smarter than I am, yet she screwed up her A-levels and cannot get into the university she wanted

If they're older enough then this is usually true. They have more schooling and are usually wiser in their childhood then the younger sibling.

My older sister never forget to remind me on this

19 They can be metalheads

I hate pop, and don't care for metal, and I am the oldest sibling.

Hey I'm the youngest and am a metalhead and he listens to rap I don't get it dude

Well hey, at least they don't listen to pop garbage. - astroshark

MY Sister lovs kpop and madesign my fam love it to but I hate it

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

She always says I talk back and don't admit my mistakes. Well, I'm just exactly following her example. Older siblings are our "role models", aren't they?

Yes that’s what my sister is. She acts all gentle and friendly to people and saves her worst behaviour for me

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

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

22 They act like another parent

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

My YOUNGER sister does this

23 They move away for college

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! "

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

I thought this was a list about bad things about older siblings.

24 They always get shotgun

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

I don't even have a car.

25 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
