What is the worst torturing you ever suffered at the hands of your sibling(s)?

I had two older brothers. One is 8 years older than me and the other was 10 years older than me (he died in a car crash at 18 years of age). My brother who is 8 years older than me was the one who tortured me the most, I guess because I took his place as the baby of the family and on top of that I was the only girl. The worst two things he did to me (and he tortured me unmercifully) was what he called chinese spit torture where he would pin me down and let spit hang down then he would slurp it back up and continue this over and over again till I was crying. The second thing he did was put a bunch of crickets in my shoes one morning so that when I stepped into my shoes they went crazy hopping all over me. I have never gotten over the cricket thing to this day I am terrified of crickets (grasshoppers don't bother me I even like them). Were you tortured or were you the one doing the torturing?

LOL, siblings can be pretty mean can't they. I come from a family of five children. There were four girls and one boy. My oldest sister used to be the to babysit us and she used to be pretty mean about it. I can remember how she would tie us up and gag us, because she figured it was the only way she would be able to do whatever she wanted while mom and dad were gone. I remember another time she tried to bake my second oldest sister into a cake. Mom tells that story religiously. I was lucky though, I was the middle child and she mainly focused on my other older sister. The two younger ones she hardly ever did anything to. Now my little sister, the youngest of the bunch, she used to get me and my brother in trouble all the time. She would do something and mom would assume it was us. I remember she put some kittens in an old, non-working dryer we had on our porch once. Mom found them and assumed we had done that. It wasn't until about 3 or 4 years ago when we were all sitting around reminiscing about things that my mom found out the truth lol. Other than that we were pretty nasty, we used to try to murder each other, literally. My brother chased my sister around one time with an axe, my parents were gone of course. Well my sister got the better of him, she just turned around, glared at him, and he dropped that axe and took off running, lickity split. I know its sounds horrible that way, but the actual sight was very amusing. Me and my oldest sister used to fight all the time. I mean fists, claws, feet, everything. I punched her so hard one time I thought I was gonna knock her out. She retaliated by gouging me in my boob. Ohhhhh I was so mad at her. But like I said siblings are like that sometimes.

Isn't that they way it is with siblings! Just beating on each other. Amazing we ever live through childhood isn't it? :-) I am the oldest of 5 so I never really had anyone torture me physically. My sister threw a pitchfork at me once, but missed. Mostly I just got blamed for things everyone else did, because they figured my parents would more than likely believe them and come down on me (and it worked most of the time).

I am also tortured by my siblings, but in a kind of moral way. I have to speak lies for my brother, get mobile recharges from them, get eatables for them and a lot lot more such jobs just to make them hide a little secret of mine. But until and unless they don't torture you, it doesn't feel like being siblings. Cheers! AJ Rox.

Loving each other! - My son loves the kids so much! They are my grandchildren and they are almost like my son's siblings. He gives them the love of a real older brother. He would bath them... play with them, tell them bedtime stories... anything that would make them enjoy each others company.
How could that brother of yours be so cruel to you. He must be sicked in the mind. Have you told your parents about his misdoings? I think if I were your mother, that brother of yours will get what he deserved. I will not spoil my rod to this kind of brat. I will certainly use my rod to straighten this crooked kid. Do tell your mother so that your brother will learn the meaning of respect and love. Even if you are younger than him, he should respect you. In fact he should be the one protecting you. In my home, I only have a son but my grandchildren stay with us more often and my son love them so much. He is the protector of the younger ones. In fact they love each other and enjoy their moments of togetherness. I wish your brother will learn the same.

I wondered which one of us was going to come up with this discussion first, but as your brothers were meaner, it is good that you went first. Aside from the aforementioned time that they conspired to lock me in the outhouse, I guess it could have been the time the older one deliberately gave me an electric shock. But I lived (lol) and he only did that once. Most of the time, actually both of my older brothers were pretty good to me. I can only think of 4 times when they were obnoxious all through our childhood, and all four have been far outweighed by nice things they did--vastly outweighed, in fact. They used to wait until everyone was asleep and then sneek under my bed and punch the mattress, trying to convince me it was a monster. They would take turns going under, with the other brother coming up on the other side to prove to me that it wasn't him. As soon as one showed himself with a flashlight in the dark, the other one would be under there knocking and when I called out his name he would be instantly on the other side showing himself, but the first one would be under knocking. They thought it was really funny, but I was terrified. At first I was sure it was just them goofing around, but they conspired very well together and kept it up until I freaked. This only worked when I was really little.

Wow, there isn't enough bandwidth here for me to list all the things my brother did to me. The one that really stands out in my memory is when I was sound asleep and he put a lit light bulb right up to my face. First I remember the heat then opening my eyes to a bright light. He put me in the dryer and turned it on until the belt burnt up, got in trouble for that. He put me in a barrel and rolled me down a hill. Got to love big brothers...

I usually was the one doing the torturing because I am the oldest of the two of us. This is and will always be my favorite story between my sister and me. I have always love frogs, lizards, bugs and such...When I was about 8 and my sister was 5 or so I had a frog in my hand and told my little sister that if she kissed it then it would turn into a handsome prince! Well...she kissed it and it peed all over my cheerleading dress. :( I got angry and told her that some probably got in her mouth and she could never come near me or touch me again until she washed her mouth out with soap. We walked in the house and into the bathroom and she scrubbed the bar of soap on her tongue for forever! When she rinsed her mouth out and all the soap was gone I told her that she swallowed some soap that was left on her tongue and that she was going to blow up like a soap bubble, pop, an die! She ran to my mom crying and screaming. I got in a lot of trouble for it at the time, but all these years later now we laugh at it.

All my sister and I ever really did to eachother was argue. She's four years older than I am. My mother, on the other hand, had two older brothers who used to hold her down in a dark room, and bring a hand close to a flash light and tell her that a monster was coming after her. LOL

I have one elder brother who is 4 years elder than me. And he always used to torture me..LIke he never gives us a chance to speak to a guy..I mean he was a very orthodox person and always was trying to be very protective and used to torture me and my sister by hitting us. He never used to allow us to go out on weekends with our friends. He doesnt like we making any boy friends..he was very selfish..then one day I fell in love with a guy and when he came to know he just hit me very badly and rudely never used to speak to me in a good manner...very rude person..But later he met with a girl and fell in love after that there was so many drastic changes in him. Now I am married and he is also married we dont have any problem with each other..

I can tell you I still suffer today from the abuse I suffered from my older siblings. I was the youngest of six,I was told early on that I wasn't wanted,that my father raped mt mother and that is where I came from,my mother told me this as a way to as wage her guilt for letting my father do cruel things to me.Maybe that is why my older siblings were allowed to torture me. I had a older brother and sister who took pleasure in my pain and it was allowed.It was alright for them to hold my head under water until I turned blue,it was O.k. for them to tease me in school,or make me wet my pants by scariNG me with things that they knew would scare the he double hockey sticks out of me.No one ever told them to stop it,or please LET HER HEAD OuT Of WATER BEFORE SHE DROWNED.I ALWAYS FELT MY MOTHER WISHED THEY HAD DROWNED ME.ANY WAY I WAS DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL,AND HE HIMSELF DID THINGS TO ME THAT SHOULD NEVER BE DONE TO A CHILD.HIS CRAZY THINGS HE WOULD DO HAD ME SO PETRIFIED OF THE DEVIL AND MY SIBLINGS TOOK PLEASURE IN THIS FEAR OF MINE AND FOUND OTHER DEVIOUS WAYS TO FRIGHTEN ME WITH THE DEVIL.I TODAY AM STILL AFRAID OF THE WATER AND WILL NOT GO SWIMMING,MY FEAR OF THE DEVIL IS OUT OF THE ORDINARY.

I only have one brother and he is also eight years old than me. We used to rumble and tumble ALL the time, unless we were actually being nice and playing video games or baseball. One of the things he loved to do was pin me down so he could fart in my face. Now and then he'll still do it but won't pin me down, just stick his behind towards my direction. He also liked to hit me on the head with his class ring. It was huge and he would turn it around so the gem was underneath. Then he would smack me with it. It got to the point where my parents took it away from him. I don't remember this but I've heard that he once knocked me out on the fireplace when we were goofing around. My mom said he was freaking out. It's probably a good thing I don't remember!
