Today, my little brother gave me an open jar of peanut butter for my birthday. I'm deathly allergic, and he knows it. Despite his maniacal grin and snickering, my parents said it was an innocent mistake, and grounded me for yelling at him. FML

I think he'll be allergic to a good beating. Instant justice. You may be grounded, but if he gets slapped around every time he does it, he won't do it. And it's a punishment your parents can't undo.
And for those who think I'm overreacting, a peanut allergy can be lethal.

Actually maybe the brother is young. That doesn't mean he can't be evil. I'm 2 years older than my little bro and at an incredibly young age he was already lying, manipulating my parents, and constantly getting me in trouble. There are some pretty messed up children out there, and maybe the kid's age is what makes the parents skeptical. Although, he managed to keep up his "antics" for years and years because they never punished him and they always believed him

What does autism have to do with that dumb comment? Autistic people are usually very intelligent. Also a very good friend of mine is autistic so I kind of take offense to that.

People who are allergic to peanuts have a high probability of being allergic to tree nuts as well, and vice versa. Most allergists will tell you to avoid all nuts if you're allergic to one. You're right, peanuts are legumes, but as far as food allergies go, peanuts and nuts go hand in hand.

I know some people who can't even smell peanuts or peanut butter without needing their EpiPen. So yeah, if the OP has an allergy as serious as that, an open jar of peanut butter is definitely something worth yelling about.

I don't understand what the whole nuts/not nuts had to do with anything. OP said they were allergic to peanuts/peanut butter. It doesn't matter if peanuts aren't actually nuts, she's allergic to them no matter what. And peanut allergies are one of the most severe allergies you can have, I don't think anything is an overreaction in that case.

She did not overreact! You don't have to eat or ingest peanuts to have a reaction. Just by touching or smelling peanut residue you could die. It all depends on the severity of the allergy. Some people have a special dog that smells peanuts to help the owner to avoid any kind of residue.

#91 - He might not have needed to. Sometimes, if the allergy is severe (and judging by the word 'deathly', OP's is) just the smell of peanuts can trigger a reaction.

EDIT: Damn, #94 beat me to it.

17- I think the focus is on keeping OP an alive person.

I 'm not usually for violent solutions, but anything that doesn't kill or maim him is fair game here.
