Who even knows what the argument was about. It doesn’t seem like it was anything important, but then this older sister started making some low blows.
“My sister seemed (at least to me) to be coming across as very aggressive out of frustration and losing said argument.”
“The two of them were too absorbed in their argument to realize the rest of us were getting a bit fed up.”
This older sister then said she isn’t going to argue with a 22-year-old who hasn’t even slept with a girl yet, which is just downright mean.
“My brother hadn’t done any personal attacks up until that point, it was completely unprovoked. I think it might have been the alcohol as my sister is a mean drunk.”
“Anyway, I immediately told my sister to grow up and that she was making an embarrassment of herself.”
“She replied by saying everyone knows he’s (one) and she didn’t say anything wrong. This annoyed me as my bro definitely has confidence issues and doesn’t need to be made fun of like this.”
Also, what kind of a 29-year-old says something like that to their own brother??
“So I responded by saying how she slept with well over a hundred men while she was in college, and that since everyone in the family knows this it’s not a big deal right?”
“Turns out her husband didn’t know this amazingly, and I genuinely assumed he must have known.”
“He left the party angrily saying my sister mislead him about her past.”
“Family is blaming me for their marital problems. I refuse to accept I did anything wrong.”
“My sister bullied my brother in front of everyone, all I did was give her a taste of her own medicine.”
While some of the internet thought there was a better way to handle it, a lot of people agreed it was time someone shut her down.
“Bullies tend to think they are invulnerable till they aren’t, and tend to get unreasonably angry for having the same thing pulled on them. They are expecting their victims to be the better person.”
“Don’t dish what you can’t take. You don’t want your history laid out? Don’t lay out someone else’s. Turnabout is fair play for a reason.”
“We can’t always stop attacks with peaceful negotiations. You can’t always stop bullies with reasoned discourse. Sometimes diplomacy fails.”
“The sister thinks this is supposedly acceptable. So (you are) just returning to her what she thinks is an acceptable conversation topic…”
“She lied to her husband about her past. Seems everyone is missing that.”
“You were looking out for your little brother and you fought with the truth. If your sister can’t take the truth, she shouldn’t dish it out. She also shouldn’t have kept it from her husband.”
“Don’t want your feelings hurt? Don’t hurt someone else’s.”
