I had asked my brother to water at least a few of the gardens outside this evening as it was very very hot today and yesterday, while he was out there doing his thing with his own garden and the very small one by the dead tree of his in the yard, whatever it is. He takes forever to water like two gardens of the same size. He says he can't do the one on the side of the house so I figure he did at least three of them. Then he comes in and he says he left the hose out for me, so I ask him which gardens he did and he says none of mine. Duh. Should I be surprised he doesn't do anything for me! I do so much more for him, he is such a jerk I swear. He claims the heat is getting to him and is now sleeping on the couch, the lazy a$$$$$$$$$$$$. I wish I had one of my friend's brother, he does 'everything' for her. Now as a result I have a ton of mosquito bites as well. He should be shamed of himself that he's a grown man and does this crap, no women would want him. I can see why he's still single. I stopped taping his shows for him but he did ask me to tape one of them so I did, but not volunteering myself anymore. I noticed a few of my plants were fried too, ugh.

QUIT THE INSANITY!! Did I just read this right? Are you saying that this dude does NOTHING for you and yet you do all for him? WHAT?! This jerk needs a wake up call!! He should be ashamed of himself. I would STOP doing ANYTHING for this jerk and if he says something tell him. I am tired of doing for you and never having you do anything for me. Set up some boundaries GIRL. I wouldn't say negative things to him. Treat him the way you want to be treated but without doing all for him. See how he rolls after that.

Yep that is what I'm gonna do from now on, he is just the most idiotic brother anyone could have. Whenever he says that my cat is spoiled here I quickly remind him that he's the one whose spoiled. The prissy pants one who always gets his own way, it must be nice having a temper so everyone leaves you (meaning him) alone. He talks when he comes in the room when I have my TV shows on but expects me to be quiet when his shows are on, such silly things like that that he doesn't seem to GET. I am setting up many boundaries these days more than ever.

Good for you! And don't do the special things you used to. Ask him nicely to be quiet when your shows are on. If he doesn't don't do for him. One good turn deserves another.

Hiya Danny. How old are you two guys? We're adults and living in the same place, as he has never lived apart from my parents at 45. Plus today because the phone rang and I had to talk on it for a few minutes he gets up in a rage running towards me and asking for the phone. I told him to sit down cause I was nervous about his temper and then he gets even more mad and says in another rage that he wanted to help me and that he would never help me again. I'm like, dude, when do you really offer to help me anyways? I swear this family is going to kill me yet--with stress.

Well I think that you need to not depend on him for anything. Sounds as if he is just a bum and I believe you are right about not having a woman that will have him...

He is 45 years old and lives here for free w/ my folks and I, and for as man who does that at his age is pretty darn pitiful & sad. I don't have to depend on him for anything as he is useless and was never a sibling to begin with. Years ago he even took my underwear when I was a teen and he was like 12, and went up to his room and tried it on. I know this for a fact. This is how sick he is and always has been. I know he is fascinated by women's underwear, & I think he is a closet lingerie wearer as well these days as I have found women's underwear in his room just over a year ago and he does not have a girlfriend.

It is terrible that your brother would not help you out especially since he was not doing anything important. My brother helps me out and will bend over backwards to do anything for me, while my sister only cares about herself. My sister works all the time and expects my parents to drop everything to help her out. On tueday she got called into work and her boyfriend was supposed to pick up the kids at 9:30 at night and my mom ended up taking them home at 11:00PM (and she has to be at work at 6:00AM). I went with my mom because she did not want drive alone. As for your brother I feel that you should not do anything more for your brother unless he starts helping her out.

Yea, I think it is just his negative selfish nature. I envy people who have siblings that help them, I mean I have no sisters or any other brothers, and this idiot doesn't help me with anything. I always lent him money, cleaned his animal cages, bagged newspapers for him when younger for his paper route, etc, etc. The list goes on. Grrrr. Spoiled brat he is. I won't be doing much of anything for my brother unless I really have to.

I did quit alot of things, and he seems to be better towards me, go figure! I guess he realizes that if you are rotten to me then I'll be rotten back--even it takes six years or more, ha.
