Let’s get our parents to do it…

This is the face that conniving siblings are all too familiar with. You’ve always wanted to get a pet, but then again, you don’t have a job yet. However, the next best solution is to convince your parents to get you a cat, a dog, a hamster or whatever it is you prefer. With much annoying and reminding, you both get your way in the end.

You get everything and I don’t.

You’re clearly at odds with your sibling over attention. She seems to be the favorite, and you feel like a total black sheep. They get all the nicest things, and the gifts you receive seem like after thoughts. Oh, the humanity of it all, right? Big deal, get over it.

Why are you saying this to mom and dad?

Siblings share secrets with each other, that is an established fact. However, one may not realize that what the other is saying isn’t supposed to be shared with the parents. When such a moment comes, you’d just probably be giving them this look. The total disbelief on your face says that it was supposed to be just between you two. Not anymore, though, so oops?

They all love me.

Yeah, both of you know this face way too well. When you’ve been showered with praises at work and things are generally just going great, you give yourselves proverbial pats on the shoulder. Life is good and you’re letting everyone know that. That grin is just too smug not to be proud of anything at the moment, after all.

I’m better…

Don’t you just hate it when your sibling gloats over an accomplishment? They just love rubbing it in your face so badly. You’re probably trying to ignore the heck out of it, but it gets to you badly and you just storm off out of the room. They won this round.
