Leave me out of it

Today, my sister and mom were arguing. My sister was being really nasty to my mom, and decided to get nasty with me and drag me into the argument. Naturally, I got nasty back at her and we started fighting. My mom yelled at me for getting nasty with my sister, and kicked me out of the house for “being too nasty.” FML

OP, I assume you were only kicked out of the house temporarily until tempers cooled off.

Unless she has dementia, Mom is perfectly capable of handling an argument with your sister and does not need your help. In the future if such an argument kicks up again just leave the room. If you aren’t there you cannot get dragged into the argument.

either walk away or go in knowing the consequences... I get defending yourself, but when it comes to parents, being the third wheel in an argument tends to make you the villain. I know from experience. SO as hard as it is in the moment, consider how worth your stress it's going to be. sometimes you just have to swallow your pride and walk away.

Now you know who the favorite is. since your mom reacts that way just walk away the best that you can because all the fault will continue to fall on you.
