Ah. Is that how it is?

2. No matter how old you get, you will always be seen as the baby of the house.

Even when you’re 60.

3. When you collect bribes from your elder ones so you don’t snitch on them for breaking their curfew.

You better pay if you want your secret kept.

I didn’t come to this world to suffer.

5. If your elder one talks to you in a rude way and you reply the same way, they will start shouting “DISRESPECT”.

But respect is reciprocal na.

6. When your elder sibling’s boyfriend/girlfriend comes to visit and they try to turn you to their personal servant.

Master Manipulator!

8. This is how your elder ones look at you when your relatives visit from abroad and bring presents for only you.

Haters are gonna hate.

Give your baby brother something na.

10. When someone bullies you at school so you show up the next day with your elder siblings to fight for you.
