36 Incredibly Petty Things Siblings Have Done To Each Other
There's no petty like sibling petty.
1. Broke their PlayStation game.
2. Took their money.
"When we were preteens, my older brother had an airsoft gun. One day he had shot me in the face (it left a mark). He KNEW our parents would take away his guns if they knew he shot me in the face, so he gave me $30 to keep quiet. The next day I bought a Lego set with the money. Later that night when we were having dinner, I flat out told our parents he shot me in the face – by that point there was no way he could get his money back."

3. Gave them a drink of milk.
4. Almost got them fired.
"My brother ate my food that I called dibs on so I took his keys. He missed work and almost got fired. Don't take my food."
5. Told them something terrible (and A LIE).
6. Followed their rules.
"When I was little my brother always got mad at me for going in his room. So one day when he was at a friend's house, I snuck in and messed everything up. When he got back and saw the mess, he yelled at me to clean it up – I replied, 'I can't. I'm not allowed in your room.'"
7. Watched shows without them.
8. Made sure they couldn't watch shows without them.
"My sister and I got into a fight, and at the time we were binge-watching Bates Motel. She threatened to watch the season finale without me, so I went on every device I have and turned on a random Netflix show so she wouldn't be able to access her account – our Netflix is limited to a few devices at once."
9. Made them eat dog food.
10. Hid their clothes.
"When my brother took my portable charger and lost it, I took all of his clothes from his room and hid them throughout the house, only leaving him with a hotdog costume to wear. No regrets. That was an expensive charger."
11. Drank all their soda.
12. Left them in a tree.
"My sister got stuck in a tree, like, physically stuck when we were at a park. I was mad at her, so when a woman came and asked if she should call someone, I said 'no, she's fine', then I just left and went home leaving my sister in the tree.
"When I got home my parents asked where my sister was, and I told them 'stuck in a tree'. They went to the park and the fire department was there cutting her out of the tree."
13. Filled their suitcase with pennies.
14. Ruined their face towel.
"My older sister once ratted me out to my parents for smoking a cigarette (that she gave me) when I was 16, so I blew my nose in her face towel and watched while she used it to take her makeup off."
15. Gave them an allergic reaction.
16. Told them to lick frost.
"I am seven years older than my sister and had to watch her a lot when we were growing up. I hated it! She was so annoying! When she was 3 and I was 10, I wanted to go outside and build a snowman after the first snowfall of the season. My mom told me that I could go outside, but that I would have to keep an eye on my sister who wanted to play in the snow too. I tried making a snowman and my sister kept smashing it, so I told her to lick the frost off the metal flag pole in our yard. I left her stuck there until I finished building my snowman."
17. Glittered them up.
18. Decapitalised their name.
"My little sister always got attention, so I always wrote her name without capitalising the first letter since we had just learned that capitalising proper nouns indicated importance or respect."
19. Called the police on them.
20. Knocked over their shampoo.
"My sister would always knock over my shampoo bottles in the shower and they'd end up leaking. So one day I poured out all of her shampoo into the tub and left the empty bottle laying there. When she confronted me about it I just simply said, 'Oops, sorry, I just knocked it over and forgot to pick it up.' I was, like, 10."
21. Destroyed their Barbies.
22. Framed them.
"My brother once took a permanent marker and wrote my name on the bathroom counter then crossed it out to make it look like I tried to cover it up but not enough so you could still read it. My mom would not believe me that he did it."
23. Created a playlist for them.
24. Got them to break their own things.
"When I was a kid, my brother and I were fighting and I chased him into the bathroom. To keep him trapped, I tied his Nintendo remote control cord to the door handle and secured it so that when he tried to get out of the bathroom he broke his own game controller... I feel bad about it now!"
25. Gave them the silent treatment.
26. Wreaked havoc with their earrings.
"I would take my sister's earring and bend the backing back and forth until it just about broke. And kept it kind of bent, so the next time when she tried to fix it, it would break."
27. Held their cereal hostage.
28. Gave them a new eyeliner.
"I emptied out my sister's liquid eyeliner (it's in a small bottle) and took a small tube of pure black pen ink and poured it into the liquid eyeliner bottle. It was funny because she had raccoon eyes for at least 3 days."
29. Kept the receipts.
30. Brought them some ice cream.
"One day, when I was about 10 years old, my sister kept bothering me for no apparent reason. She ended up getting me (and somehow, not herself) into trouble. So later that week she skipped dinner because she had to work on a project. Being the lovely sister that I was, I brought some ice cream upstairs to her room. I told her that our mom had made this for her and wanted me to bring it up.
"What my sister didn't know is that I had taken some vanilla ice cream and COVERED it in pepper flakes. I'd even taken the time to mix it in so that the pepper was evenly (and abundantly) distributed. She asked me what kind of ice cream it was, and I said it was cookies and cream. She then eats a big spoonful and immediately gags. She gets up like she's going to go dump it, but I start freaking out. I told her, 'omg no what are you doing?!?! Mom made that for you and she's going to be so mad if you don't finish it. You better eat it all or you're gonna get into so much trouble!!!'
"So she sits there for about half an hour and finishes THE ENTIRE BOWL OF PEPPER-COVERED ICE CREAM. To this day, I still haven't come clean."
31. Left a present in their bed.
32. Cut off their nose to spite their face.
"My sister had a sweater that she never wore, but never let me wear it even though I loved it. So I 'did her laundry for her' and purposefully shrank it. It now fits our little brother."
33. Ruined Christmas.
34. Gave them an ant infestation.
"My sister likes to always yell at me about cleaning more. Went into her room one day to feed the fish and saw she left a cupcake from the night before on her desk. A single file line of ants was marching towards it and I decided to let it happen. By the time she discovered it the ants were EVERYWHERE on her stuff. Guess who needs to clean more now."
35. Did unspeakable things to their toothbrush.
36. Added extra flavour to their ramen.
"My older sisters were ALWAYS turning off my cartoons for soap operas and I had no say, so I got revenge wherever I could. One day, when I was 7 and my sister was 11, she came into the living room with a bowl of ramen, turned off my cartoons, then went back to the kitchen to get something. While she was gone, I stuck my bare feet in her soup. Then sat and watched gleefully while she ate the entire bowl."
