Admit it. You had days when you wanted to get rid of your younger sibling. They’re cute and all, but they don’t have boundaries. They follow you around, play with your toys, take over your space, and steal the spotlight from you.
You try to talk to the ‘rents about it, but as far as they’re concerned, your younger sibling simply idolizes you. You try your best to see things from their perspective, but it doesn’t make anything less annoying. Then goes the whole balancing act of trying not to be too annoyed and working hard at being a good role model for them.
So, what’s up with all this talk about annoying younger siblings? Well, we’ll have you know that you’re not alone. Other people go through that too, and if you’re up for it, you can pick up a few pointers on how they’ve been handling it. Interestingly, humans are not the only ones with annoying younger siblings. Dogs have it too.
Getting away with everything
The thing about having younger siblings is they can get away with absolutely anything. Blame it on all that cuteness and the fact that they’re a whole lot younger than you are. The moment you rat them out to your parents, you end up taking an earful because you’re supposed to be more patient and understanding.
Dogs experience these things too. They end up losing their cozy beds and tasty treats because their younger siblings manage to steal it from them. When they try to let these young ones know how annoyed they are, they get reprimanded for their actions.
A thread older siblings can relate to
Dog owners recently made a threat showing how annoyed their pups are at their younger siblings. The list was hilarious and relatable; people couldn’t stop themselves from chiming in and sharing their experiences as well.
