Siblings That Would Make Anyone Wish They Were An Only Child

The bond between siblings is a unique one, and every relationship is different. You’re willing to donate a kidney to them if they need it, but you’re not willing to share that pizza you ordered for dinner.

No matter how much you love your sibling or how great your relationship is now, a sister or brother will almost always take the opportunity to play a prank or prove a point, because that’s what siblings are for.

Hidden Revenge

Sometimes it feels like your siblings set out to make your life as difficult as possible, and that’s true. Siblings have the unique ability to come up with punishments or situations that irk you in just the right way.

This Is What They Get For Going On Vacation

Your sibling might be perfectly happy to house-sit for you while you and your fiancé go on vacation, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t also going to build a shrine to Terry Crews in your foyer.

Sending A Message In The Steam

“Every time I take a shower, I draw something on the mirror so it reappears when my brother showers. Today I went for something a little creepier than normal..” This could get real creepy, real quick.

Just What You Asked For!

This person asked for an iPad for Christmas, and her sister decided to get her just what she asked for! The budget-friendly version, of course. It’s great to keep in your first aid kit.

Power-Washing Her Point

Erin said that buying a power washer was a waste of money because power-washing didn’t actually do anything. As you can see from this message on the concrete, Erin was wrong.

Weight There… We’ll Be Right Back

All younger siblings want is to be friends with their cool older siblings and do things to make them happy. Sometimes that can be fun for the younger sibling too. Other times, it leads to them being weighed down by literal weights.

The Perfect Outfit Does Not Exi—

When this person asked their brother to meet them for dinner, they never dreamed that he would show up dressed in a full panda costume. He should have dreamed bigger, apparently, because it happened.

They Lost The Key Too

So not only did their sibling think it would be funny to put a padlock around the center of their glasses while they were sleeping, but they also lost the key so they can’t remove the lock.

She’s A Little Busy At The Moment

As the designated fun aunt, she wanted to commemorate the day that her niece or nephew came into the world by taking a selfie. Taking it while her sister was giving birth might not have been the right choice, though.

No Easy Money Here

Look on the bright side! This person is giving their sibling $100 for Christmas—that’s a great gift. It just happens to be $100 made up of 100 individually wrapped $1 bills.

Welcome Home!

One person made the mistake of asking their siblings to pick them up from the airport after a long trip. Their brothers agreed to do it, but they weren’t going to do it without adding a little excitement to the arrivals gate.

Practicing Her Graphic Design Skills

This Reddit user had to share a photo of the shipping label that came with their present from their sister. Turns out their sister is a graphic designer who likes to create funny labels for the gifts she sends.

“Did My New Shoes Arrive?”

Apparently, in this household, if you ask your sibling to send you a picture of your new shoes that arrived in the mail, these are the kinds of photos you can expect to receive.

An Only Child No More

It can be a tough transition for your child to go from being an only child to being the eldest child. You hope the transition will be smooth when the second baby is born, but reality isn’t always smooth sailing.

She Was Only Left Alone For A Few Minutes…

One sister offered to help another pack up her home in preparation for moving but got a little sidetracked. She was only left alone for a few minutes and used that time to move-proof the dog.

Thanks For The Reminder

It’s a wonder that Hallmark doesn’t sell inspirational cards like this one! Wouldn’t you think every person on their 21st birthday would like to be reminded of how much they haven’t accomplished?

“Perfect! Looks Great!”

Someone Had A Lot Of Spare Time

This woman and her fiancé believed that every aspect of her fiancé’s sister’s home should reflect the festive spirit. That includes the entire contents of her fridge, which the sister came home to find wrapped in wrapping paper.

How Thoughtful

Unless the person who took this photo is actually a cat, they were less than thrilled when their sibling gave them an empty box as a Christmas present one year.
