15 pains you'll only understand if you grew up with an older brother

Can you just be player one for ONCE.

HAVING AN OLDER brother can be both a blessing and a curse. But mostly a curse when you’re little.

1. You never got in trouble, but only because your parents were too busy punishing him for things he did to you

2. You were always put in his hand-me-downs, no matter what your gender is

It’s not a shirt any more, it’s a dress.

3. A screw-up or embarrassing moment never went unforgotten or unslagged

Older brothers are almost always incapable of sympathy.

4. Nicknames are just a fancy word for ongoing insults

5. You constantly had your tastes shot-down, but he inevitably made yours better

So what if he was responsible for your teen goth phase? Think of all the bands you wouldn’t have heard without him.

6. He’d help you, but would always tell you how much he didn’t want to

9. All the big shop goodies were eaten hours after they were unpacked

Your mam had to start hiding them, which meant you missed out either way.

10. The rare time you were allowed play his consoles, you always had to be player 2

Can I just be Mario for ONCE? No, Luigi.

11. When his friends were over, you were cast aside

And you BETTER not attempt to join them.

12. You constantly heard about his reaction the day you were born

He hated you, FYI.
