If she wasn't my sister, I wouldn't talk to her. My sister is mean, judgemental, snobby, and selfish. She is almost 30 and has never had a job. She does not have a degree and does not want to work, but expects my parents to keep giving her money. My parents gave her 25,000 dollars out of their own pockets for her to go to school. Just before she got her degree, she decided to go to a very expensive private school where none of her credits transferred, and my parents then cosigned huge loans to pay for this school. Then she dropped out. Then, she decided to go to yet another college and tried to get my parents to give her even more money, even though by that point she was 28. My parents refused because she had left two schools prior with no degree to show for it. She found the money another way, but then dropped out of that third school. Now, she's going to a fourth college and is considering dropping out of that school too.
When I first started college, my sister was still going to her expensive private university. I was going to a state college because it was really cheap and offered a good education. Because it was a state school and not a private school, my sister kept making fun of it and constantly referred to it as "a hick school" despite the fact that it was a very good liberal arts school. On my first day there she helped me move in, and then for the rest of the day kept putting my school down.
A few years ago when I was 17 my parents bought me a laptop because I needed one to do my school work with. I got the cheapest one I could find and my sister complained that if I got a laptop, that she should get one too. She was 27 then and had no use for a computer, because at that time she had spent about a year not going to school, not having a job, and spending all day sitting in her boyfriend's apartment.
The most recent college my sister is in is a state school, so now she's acting like it's really prestigious because she goes there (after putting my college down so much because it was a state school). I have applied to transfer there, and she's been acting like she hopes I don't get in. She's been saying things like "Well, it's a really good school, so I'm not sure you're going to get in!" and other things like that in really condescending tones. She thinks if I don't get in, it means she's smarter and better than I am.
Another issue I have with my sister is that she calls my mom literally 450 times a month (with a phone my parents pay for). I think that is a ridiculously high number and it drives my mom crazy. My mom wants to be supportive though so she answers almost every single time. When my mom doesn't answer, my sister calls and texts me asking why my mom hasn't answered the phone. Sometimes she takes a break from calling my mother, and if my mom needs to ask her a question she calls up my sister. But then my sister is really mean to my mom for calling, even though my mom is good about answering all those calls she made.
Because my mom is disabled, she can no longer work. My sister uses my mom not working as an excuse to not work. She says that if my mom doesn't work, she doesn't have to either, even though she's not disabled like my mom is.
My sister is also really mean to everyone in the family. My dad is an author with several published novels, but my sister said he's a bad writer with ****** books (she never read them). My mom doesn't work anymore because she's disabled, but was a highly accomplished computer programmer. So my sister told my mother she wasn't a good programmer. I'm a really good writer and received A's in both my college writing courses. One of my writing professors always used my writing as examples in class and asked me to be a writing tutor. So my sister told me I'm not a good writer (she never read anything I wrote). I'm also an art major, and a few of my teachers thought my work was good and also wanted to use it as examples in class. So my sister told me my art is boring.
My sister also hates her boyfriend but stays with him anyway because he's going to an ivy league school. She only dates people who go to places like Harvard and Princeton. She told me she wants to be a housewife, live off of her future husband and "pop babies" (exactly her words). She told me I should only date people who are studying to be doctors or lawyers and not date any artists, because artists have no money. When she asked me what type of guys I like to date, I told her "artistic, creative ones." So she told me, "Oh, so you're materialistic." What???
Awhile ago I was dating someone who I had been seeing for several months. We finally decided to "get intimate" and ended up having an accident where the protection broke. I told my sister about it who promptly called my mother and said I was "having unprotected sex" which was completely untrue. She told me she said that because "condoms don't break." Later I found out that while she was saying that about me, SHE was having unprotected sex with her boyfriend. Then she accidentally got pregnant . You'd think after that incident she'd use protection, but she kept having unprotected sex and had ANOTHER accidental pregnancy. Also, she once said to my mother about me: "she sleeps with every guy she meets." I had slept with 2 people. Both boyfriends. Several years apart. And of those, she only knew of 1.
I could seriously go on.
