He has charisma, you don't. Med school is right for you -- you can make tons of money even if you have no personality.

Don't make a big deal out of it. Maybe they just threw away the junk food to make their son feel better, since they see him so rarely. But that doesn't mean they'll suddenly change their eating habits just because of a speech. And if they actually do, you should be happy they're eating healthier.

you have to admit he's a MUCH better salesman than you are!! Medics are just geeks ... If you want to change peoples' behavior, you studied the wrong subject ... Fail.

Well, you've been presented a very interesting test subject. Look back to their behaviour, think about their reactions, and use this knowledge to have an idea of how ordinary, average people will react to your recommendations as a doctor. Think of the approach used by your brother, and try to find a better way to make people listen to your advices. It's most likely simply a question of the vocabulary used, or of the intonations while making the recommendations. Or it is really, as was previousl

Dude, that's just an awful thing to say! I don't know whether or not OP would say this, but f*ck you!

I'm gonna be in med-school soon and the situation is the other way around; my family telling ME to eat healthier. >.<

What's the FML there - he is in sales - meaning he is good at convincing people. Be glad that he managed to convince them of the right thing, and maybe you can even learn something from him.

very true. he has the skills to sell the idea. which u obviously lacked. I still don't see how this is a true FML?

Oddly enough, doctors make more money from the patients that DON'T listen. The ones that take the doctor's advice seriously don't come back much. OP, with your poor skills of persuasion, you should be a very successful doc:)

He's obviously a bigger douchebag and is more pushy. He actually threw out their junk food. Also, eff you both. Leave them alone.

Why would they bother? If they didn't mind having the OP tell them to throw it all way, why would they suddenly throw it all away just to shut up a sibling that rarely comes by?

This. Sibling rivalry sucks but you've got to let it go at some point. If you're in med school, you must be at least 21; now's a good time to act like an adult.
