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)

This is untrue

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.

My sister says she knows what's best for me.

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 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.

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.

I hate to share beds with my sister! 😤

Glad I have my own room.

4 Playing music you don't like loudly

I'm the older sister and my younger sister doesn't do this. My dad does it, though.

My older sister aways play theses annoying songs and Turns up to volume all the way!

This is my like my dad - DrayTopTens

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!

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. - Jamble

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

I'm the older sibling here, and just saying, the only reason I don't share my things even though I don't use them is because my younger brother picks his nose and when I tell him to wash his hands he just laughs at me then goes to smother everything in his boogers.

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.

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!

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

They are like a second mom.

This=my younger sister

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

Younger sister.

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

Younger sister

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

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.

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.

12 Expecting you to be just like them

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 - 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

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). - 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

14 They make fun of you for things they compliment others for
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)

16 They can be metalheads

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

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

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

So what? - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

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 can't take a joke


19 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

20 They act like another parent

My YOUNGER sister does this

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

21 They move away for college

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

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

22 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.

23 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

24 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

25 They think they are smarter than you

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.
