The worst thing a sibling has done to me is...

Rodney asks: what's the worst thing a sibling has done to you?

I thought, since I've got 3 brothers, I'd dedicate a whole post to the various attrocities committed in our younger years:-)

Truth be told, there wasn't many bad things my brothers (singly or collectively) did to me. I can remember various arguments and fights, but while I don't remember who had the upper hand, I also don't remember needing to plot revenge because I came off second best (perhaps because I'm the eldest and biggest?)

Maybe my brothers can remember things I did to them. Hopefully they can't, or won't, tell. Maybe we weren't quite as nasty/violent/mischevious as stories I've heard of other families?

Some incidents that spring to mind (no names, to protect the innocent):

  • being really punched in the face while play fighting (which in turn made me hit my head against the wall behind me, ouch)
  • being laughed at because I broke my arm, falling off the exact same piece of play equipment that a brother had broken his arm on, exactly one week before (hey, that hurt too!)
  • being told I was getting old (which, while technically true, is still not a nice thing to hear)
On reflection, this list is actually quite docile. No permanent scars or long-term mental anguish. I love my brothers!

Exzucuh Thomas Williams, back again, there is no telling how many times my brother David has pulled a joke on me .He is a practical joker extreme. I've got Music videos of Silencing the Stones and other Artist on youtube, check them out.

Hi Lion, I don't remember my brothers being practical jokers. In later teen years we all pretty much kept to ourselves, although we still did have fun.

Thanks for the comment, Thomas

I can't think of anything particularly bad that my sisters did to me, but I can remember some bad things that I have done!! To my sister Natalie, I broke a wooden chopping board over her head when I was about 6 or 7, and she was 8 or 9, and when we were older, we were singing on a pile of bricks out the front of our house, using a hose nozzle for our microphone. She wouldn't let me be lead singer, so I jumped down and threw it at her, and hit her near the eye, as I recall. It was the night of the school concert, and subsequently, I wasn't allowed to go!!! What a nasty little sister I must have been!!!!.....

Hey Wifey, I too remember many attrocities I committed to my brothers. Not enough room to list them here though...
