Okay, so I really do love my younger sister. But she is very spoiled. She turns 28 today, she still lives at home, everything is paid for (gym membership, Mercedes to drive, insurance, food, etc.) while she looks for someone else to support her and her 4 year old.
I wanted to do something nice for her birthday (note, she didn’t do anything for mine, but that’s not the point), so I asked her where she would like to go to lunch.
"Um, I’m actually on an all liquid diet. Can you take me for a pedicure?"
For me to purchase one pedicure is about the same cost as me purchasing lunch for both of us. But sure, I’ll take her to have her pedicure. (Now I can’t afford for both of us to get one, so the “sister” day plan I had is shot.)
I text for her to meet me there because it’s 15 minutes away from my house in the other direction from my parents house (so it doesn’t make any sense for me to meet her at my folks house and drive all the way back to the salon). She called me this morning, “I’ve lost the keys to the Mercedes, so you’re going to have to come and get me.”
Here is one of my flaws: I have a gross car. I pretty much live in it, so it is MacGyver worthy collection of STUFF. THERFORE, I now have to shovel out my vehicle to come and get her and my nephew.
I hate to say it, but if it was anyone else, I wouldn’t mind. But when it’s for a spoiled brat, I’m more than a little resentful. I’m thinking about canceling the day.
If you are the younger sibling, DO NOT DO THINGS LIKE THIS to your oldest sibling.
Happy birthday, jerk.
