My younger brother is really annoying and he's a bully...And today, he seems to be ESPECIALLY annoying!!! First of all, my brother likes attention; and he likes to get it in a negative way. Always has, always will. He gets attention when he's bored by bullying, nagging, or being loud/rude and getting in people's way on purpose...including me. If he's bored or irritated, or if he's jealous of something that I have, he will purposely try to annoy me by making loud, annoying noises, nagging, or something else. In other words, he will bully when he's bored. For example, today my dad told me to do my chores before getting on the laptop and getting on BYC, as usual. So I take care of the chickens, spend all morning cleaning the whole bathroom, and then I get on the laptop. Well, my brother still had to do his chore and he wanted to get on the laptop. So, in order to get his chore done faster and better, in his opinion, my younger sisters had to be outside because "they were getting in the way". So he made a big fuss about it and told them to go outside. Oh, and did I tellyou he's also bossy? Yep, and when my sisters told him that they didn't want to go outside because it's chilly out and there's nothing to do outside, he got our water squirter and started squirting them. That didn't work, it just made my sisters hide in their bedroom. So he started banging on their door and telling them to get outside NOW. That didn't work and he couldn't break the door down, so he said that he would kill my younger sister's favorite hen if she didn't go outside. Of course we knew he wouldn't really do that, but what would he do? So he goes outside, catches the hen, and says that he will throw her off the porch by her feet if my sisters didn't go outside. Talk about cruel and immature. And no I couldn't get him to put the hen down, unless I punched him or something, which I wouldn't do of course. So my sisters finally went outside, and he made sure that the were all the way outside before he gave me the hen and I put her outside. Even when the door wasn't all the way shut, and when I tried to take the hen, he said, "Nope, they aren't all the way outside." So finally I took the hen and put her outside safely. Now that my sisters were outside, my brother started vacuuming. But he wasn't done with his bossing yet. He started nagging about how HE had to the clean while I was on the laptop on "stupid backyardchickens.com" (yep, that's what he said). I ignored him, and when I did this, he got even more mad. He started nagging about how we shouldn't even have chickens because they are worthless, dirty, a waste of money, and we should just sell them all. Oh and he said how dumb BYC is because all we post about is chickens and it's a waste of time! Arrggghhh!!!! He makes me so mad! But when he noticed that I was just ignoring him (remember how I said he likes to get attention in negatives ways?), he said, "If you don't get off the laptop I'm unplugging the internet!" I explained to him that our dad said that when I did my chore, which I did do, then I could get on. But, he didn't care. He unplugged the internet cord. Yup, apparently he thinks he has the power to do that. But while dad's away, he does. So O told him to plug it in, he told me I had to say sorry. "How old is he? Two?" I thought. Eventually he plugged it back in. This isn't the worst he has done. He has threatened to unplug my incubator while eggs were in it last Summer (he has hermit crabs and he needed a light bulb for them because he lost his. So he wanted to take mine from the incubator). And I wouldn't let him so he said he would unplug it and toss the incubator out on the porch. He never really did it though, luckily. ARRGHHH!!!!
