Are all siblings disrespectful to each other?! I have an older brother... and we are in the house alone most of the day. We have strict rules about chores and things... I have to wash the dishes, do the laundry and generally tidy up everyday. If i dont do it i dont get my weekly allowance. However, my brother does NOTHING! and yet my parents will bail him out from anything, any debt he has or anything he needs he will get. He talks to my parents like they are complete sh*t sometimes, but all he'll get is a few words of "dont talk to me like that". He treats me like a piece of sh*t aswell. He just called me names which to be honest i dont think are appropriate to even repeat... all because there was some pasta in the plughole in the sink. He proper kicked off and was like 'this is why i never wash the pots, cus you're a f***** tramp who cant even clean up after youself cus youre a retarded ****' etc etc. Now hes being a complete idiot and is just abusing me and everything about me. Id like to blame the possible drug deprivation hes suffering cus of his lack of money, but to be honest hes been an insensitive little brat since i can remember. Ive told my mum several times, cus i get kind of scared cus when he flips he goes mental. She then says 'oh be civil to each other' and thats the end of it. What can i do? I cant ignore it cus hes in my face and will go out of his way to be. Are all siblings like this?! hes 19 btw.
