Who else has stupid brothers or sisters that are always taking your stuff without asking? What do you do about it? My stupid brother is really starting to piss me off He takes my stuff WITHOUT asking and then doesn't bother returning it. I have to go looking for it This morning I wake up to find my flip flops missing and was getting annoyed because I couldn't find them. He then gets home and I find out he HAS them but oh wait... he only has ONE of them. He left/forgot the other one at his girlfriends house. He said "oh well, i'll get it next time or whatever" yeah right and it just really pisses me off. So now I don't have anything to wear but shoes. which I HATE. and what really pisses me off about this is I've told him over and over DON'T TOUCH MY STUFF! and there are TWO other pairs of flip flops down there he could take but NO he TAKES MINE. and why don't I just wear one of the other pairs someone might ask? Well, The other ones are too big on me and they are uncomfortable to me and the point is he shouldn't be taking MY stuff. He also keeps taking MY shirts and it's not like they are nice shirts! One of them has bleach stain on it but i've had it since i was 10yrs old, my aunt gave it to me. He ruins everything because he doesn't take care of stuff and he stretches them all out and I barely have any clothes as it is so the last thing i need is him taking my clothes because I already DON'T have any. Those two things are just the recent. He takes all kinds of stuff of mine.. that is why i am really starting to get pissed off over it. I don't take his stuff so why does the moron have to take mine?

Ok breathe, breathe, calm, calm. Feel better now? I hope so. Good! First, I am sure your brother is really not stupid or a moron. You are just upset because he has been taking your stuff. So what I suggest you do is invest in some drawers or closet with keys (if you can) and LOCK all your stuff up...this way he won't be able to take your stuff anymore. If you can't use drawers or a closet, then get suitcases with keys or combo locks and put all your favorite stuff YOU DON'T WANT HIM USING inside. he will be upset with you at first, btu after a while he will get the message. Good luck!

I understand how you feel, but sometimes in this game call life we have to be a wee bit cruel to be kind and allow others to get the message that what they are doing is not cool. In your brother case this seems to be the only way since speaking to him is not doing the trick.
