To your siblingsI’m actually proud of you and you should take that as a huge compliment because normally I think you suck.


To other people: No that outfit looks fine!

To your siblings: You look like a complete moron. Go change or I refuse to be seen with you in public.


To other people: Let’s definitely catch up over Thanksgiving!

To your siblings: Let’s not leave the house at all over the Thanksgiving holiday and refuse to shower and just be disgusting blobs of worthlessness together.


To other people: I think I’m just going to relax by myself tonight and get some cleaning done.

To your siblings: Go away you’re annoying me I wanna be alone.


To other people: Things are great right now!

To your siblings: Things are the worst. So shut up and let me vent for ten minutes.
