    Stupid Brothers/Sisters?

    Do any of you have brothers or sisters who are complete idiots?

    My sisters who are in about 10 years older than me (They are in their late 40's) seem to do something stupid nearly every time I talk to them.

    Let me paint the picture

    Combined my sister and her husband probably make 80K/year. He's a truck driver who seems to work about 90 hours per week.

    No savings
    No retirement
    $50K house in small town w/mortgage. It has $5,000 in granite countertops!


    I was talking to her today and it went something like this:

    We traded in the Mustang GT
    What did you get?
    An F150 Platinum
    J.H.C, what did that cost?
    I don't know what the total was but our payments are $700/month
    For how long?
    7 years
    ...........
    It has a backup camera, sync, an awesome 700 watt surround sound radio, it's freakin sweet
    Wow sounds nice


    I hung up and went to ford.com. The truck has a sticker of nearly $50K and they were upside down on the stang.

    I'm at a lose for words.

    I am pretty sure I am considered the stupid sibling in my family but it is excused for witty comments that I provide at family functions.

    Re: Stupid Brothers/Sisters?

    My younger brother is only 14...no real chances to make too excessively stupid decisions yet.

    I've just kinda let things go anymore. You can't fix stupid unfortunately.

    Re: Stupid Brothers/Sisters?

    my brother, while taking a corner on a gravel road too fast, flew off the road and hit a barn. Morton building actually. Which was empty. Except for one large endloader....which of course was parked next to the wall exactly where he ran into the barn.

    That's all I got

    Considering they were upside down on the stang, it seems like they may have gotten decent interest.

    Re: Stupid Brothers/Sisters?

    Who the hell gets a 7 year loan on a car? What kind of bank allows someone to get a 7 year loan on a vehicle? I've done a lot of dumb things in my life when it comes to vehicles but never anything close to this.

    In a HS commencement address Conan O'Brien said something to the effect that everyone has a crazy roommate as a freshman in college, and if they don't THEY are the crazy roommate.

    Same concept...if you don't have a stupid sibling, then it's you!


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Re: Stupid Brothers/Sisters?

    With me it is just the opposite. I have one sister in med school and another who just got her masters. When it comes to knowing things about everyday life they are inept, but in no way idiots.

    Re: Stupid Brothers/Sisters?

    Let's just say in my family I got the book smarts and my sister got the street smarts...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    I think the answer is that all brothers and sisters are stupid.
