Ok, my parents have gone on holiday to York, and I wanted to have some friends round for a bit of a get together, but this plan was foiled when I realised I have to take my little brother to the dentist in the morning, and can't really leave a bunch of people alone in my house.

However, yesterday I took him to a party, which is a half hour drive there, and another back. Today he wants me to pick him up, same drive again.
Tomorrow to the dentist is another half hour drive there and the same back.

Basically, after a lot of aggro...should I bother picking him up, or make him learn a valuable life lesson?

if you have to take him in the morning, why is it such a problem? just have the party or whatever later
Sig space available, give me some praise

Pick him up.

I'm sure your parents will find out about it either way and will make things much easier for you if you prove that you're responsible and can be counted on.

If you do that to your brother, I will hunt you down, kick your ass and steal your car. OK, I won't, but it's still a dick move.


Woah...I'm gonna check the poll now, and if it agrees with you...I guess I'd better go

EDIT: Damn you!! I guess I'd better get moving

Just so you know, you've made a poor unemployed boy spend another £5 on a brother who has no value of money!!! (He's in debt over £200 on a phone bill!! To his girlfriend, whom he probably had sex with last night! WHEN DO I GET TO HAVE SEX DAMMIT?!)

@ TS' last post: that's pretty pathetic...
He's 16, can't he just go to the dentist by himself?
My parents never ask me to drive my brothers around....

Make him pay for gas, but you should still pick him up. The few times I needed my older bro to pick me up he always did, (reluctantly of course, but who could blame him, it was a 60 mile round trip,) but I sure as hell paid for gas and usually we stopped at a fast food place on the way back and i bought him a burger or something.

Even if he doesn't know the value of a buck, leaving him stranded won't teach him anything but how to be a douche back to you in the future.

andychalmers102, that story is awesome.
#22
Yeah, the next bus wasn't til 4 apparently

And he can't get to the dentist himself because it's a long way away and the bus services are crap around here

He bought me a sandwich from Somerfield, which made up for it a bit I guess

Idiot. In the UK you have to be 17 to even apply for your provisional (learner's permit).

you could call the dentist's surgery and ask if his appointment can be moved on a few hours so that you can see your friends off in the morning and still take your brother. if your parents are gone for a few days, you could even reschedule the appointment to the next day, allowing you to have your friends over.

the sneaky option is this: do your parents know about this party he went/is going to? if not, you could pick him up from the party, then tell him he has to find his own way to the dentist (or even give him the money for a taxi), using the party he went to w/o your parents' permission as leverage so you dont get into trouble.
