My brother is about a year and a half younger than me and when we were little we did pretty much everything together. Even in high school we did some stuff together; he's only a year behind me and we share many common friends.

Last spring I graduated high school and moved off to college. Now my younger brother is the big man in high school and at home.

Here's the problem- ever since I moved out he's become a total asshole. He seems to have assumed the role of older brother and treats me like his inferior. He talks like he knows more than I do with absolutely EVERYTHING and never compliments, only criticizes. If someone compliments me on something he'll go off to say how shitty that something is, and it's irritating.

It seems every time I visit he just wants to hang around the house like a bum while I want to go out and have a good time with who used to be one of my closest friends.

I know he's jealous for some things, mostly money related; I have a job which pays me money, and that money lets me buy food, gas for my car, and pay rent to live away from my parents (he hates living with mom and dad because they won't spoil him, but he won't get a job so he can actually go out and do things).

So here's my question, do any of you UGers have similar situations and what do you do to deal with them?

You know what pisses me off the most? When your little brother beats you in SSBB using the same fucking moves over and over again.

God, I hate that.

Dude my little brother is 17, I'm 20. He got that way when I moved out of home, I fixed it by inviting him over to my apartment and there was like 4 of us there (all 20+) and we started harassing him in a humorous way. He got extremely pissed and was about to leave and I said, "Ok...lets make a truce..no need to act like dicks huh? Now you know how I feel."

Now we don't fight or argue unless its for a true brother type fight. Nothing stupid like what you described- put him in his damn place man.

actually, he started to get like this last fall and i went to jail for putting him in his place (don't ask). we actually got along better after the incident but once i moved out he reverted to his old asshole self. i think it might be the fact that he now gets all the shit from my mom and dad and other two younger siblings.

and i live with my older brother (he leases a house and i pay my share of the rent) and the last time my younger brother came he only spent time with my older brother since i pretty much work nights and weekends.

what i WANT to do is pick him up from my parents house to spend the weekend where i live. that way if he bugs me i can just stop a few miles short of home and make him walk.

well i didn't wanna write it because i've written it numerous times in The Pit.

i'll try to be concise. My mom and I got in an argument. She claimed i used my dad's company laptop to look at porn (he's not supposed to look at porn and supposedly can lose his job over it).

i wasn't even home when it happened and my mom was stupid and deleted the browsing history. my mom still made a big deal of everything and we kept fighting about it and eventually the cops were called. they arrested me for "domestic violence" (which can be as little as having a shouting match with someone)

i spent the night in jail because of the fact that the cops had been called to our house a few other times, and i was related to each incident (one time my younger brother threw me on top of the ****ing dishwasher which was open and had knives sticking up out of the silverware basket, i called the cops so someone could talk some sense into him while my parents were gone)

my dad bailed me out and i was home the next day. after a little of my own investigating, i found out that said brother was the ONLY person other than my dad to be seen using the laptop, so my whole fight with my mom was because he did something and didn't own up to it.

anyway, i spent a few months in the court system and was sentenced to a year's probation. only SIX DAYS after that court date i got in a fight with said brother because mom and dad left us alone and he started picking a fight. he told me he thought things would be better off with me in jail and i called him a sorry mother****er. he decided to call the cops and tell them that i hit him, an outright lie.

the cops show up and i told them my part of the story first and the cop (who i already knew to be a dickhead) said that because i was on probation there was zero tolerance and calling him a sorry mother****er was enough to go to jail for violating probation.

so last May i was sentenced to two years probation. rather than going to jail for violating probation they waived the first misdemeanor and treat it like i'm serving two separate probations (violation = double punishment) until next month and then i'm all done with everything in May 2010.

unfortunately i still am left with a misdemeanor which can keep me from getting certain jobs.

yeah, it's actually the reason my older brother offered to let me move in with him after graduation, providing i attend college and pay rent.
