What Happens When You and Your Favourite Cousin Fight?

April 25, 2022

Unfortunately, we sometimes fall out with our favourite family members. If you’ve ever had to stop talking to your favourite cousin, then you can relate to these eight things. 

1) Family functions become annoying

Your cousin is not around to make moments lively. You’re stuck listening to your family members make weird comments about you for the next couple of hours. 

2) You doubt just how related the both of you are

If they’re your cousin, maybe they’re not blood-related. Abi is it possible you’re sharing genes with someone so annoying? 

3) You start cropping them from family pictures 

Before you post pictures of your family, you’d have to meticulously erase them from the picture. Unfortunately for you, they’re in a lot of pictures. When you’re done, just start calling yourself a tech babe.

4) There’s nobody that understands family gossip

The best thing about having a favourite cousin is that they have background knowledge. You don’t have to explain everything because they understand. If you try to find a replacement, you’d have to fill someone in on generations of gist and that’s just stressful. 

5) You realise just how much you hate your family members 

All the excitement you reserved for owambes and other family gatherings was because you got to see them. Now that the two of you are fighting, there’s no excitement again. That’s when it dawns on you that you don’t like your family members.

6) You lose your best alibi 

There’s nobody to cover for you when you do things your parents might not completely agree with. Now, you have to be honest and tell your parents the truth? Who does that? 

7) You can’t even insult them

At least if you’re fighting someone, you can say things like “you’re ugly” and “God will punish your generation”. Unfortunately, you and your cousin share the same genes. Also, your generations will intersect. Cursing them is cursing yourself. Wahala for all involved. 

8) You can’t even block them everywhere 

You might block them on social media, but you can’t block them in real life. When Uncle David is getting married, both of you will jam in real life.
