Today, my parents are forcing me to take my brother with me when I hang out with my friends. This wouldn't be that weird if my brother wasn't 26. FML

swervelol tells us more.

Lmao op here! I didn't think this would actually get posted! Here's the follow up. I'm 17 and my brother just moved back home from Minnesota so he doesn't have a whole lot of friends here. My brother and I get along great I just thought it was funny that my mom didn't want my brother to feel left out so she makes me bring him with when I want to go hang out with my friends. It's pretty awkward for my friends and I but I don't mind as long as my mom doesn't expect me to start bringing him with me everywhere. He's 26 not 11!

You're either 13 or 48 Either way I have so many questions. Although if you're 48 and living with your parents I doubt you would be going out, just fapping and playing online games.... Like me.

Does he not have any friends so your mom makes you take him so he can try and make friends with your friends?

Bite me. I know English but prefer to use shorthand.

They don't have to learn English if it isn't their native language, but they could at least learn proper grammar!

Probably because your IQ is low.

You have a comma splice. You have an independent clause on both sides of the word "but". Therefore, that is an inappropriate use of a comma. I have to apologize for being a grammar nazi. Taking English classes in the summer can really change a person.

Does he not have any friends so your mom makes you take him so he can try and make friends with your friends?

It would appear so.

What's wrong with being 16?

#5 I'm pretty sure it was just a question... Cuz having a 26 year old hang out with you and your 16 year old mates is a bit... weird/arkward...

I believe your brother needs a social life.

His parents are attempting to build that social life.

Assuming the brother is a teenager, that social life with the brother's friends wouldn't really work out. Also he's 26, I really wanna know why he doesn't have friends or a girlfriend for that matter. Too many possibilities.

I never understood why parents do this. Don't make OP bring his brother along with people he hardly knows. It should be up to the 26 year old brother to make something of his social life, not OP.

I'm guessing they just want him out of the house once in a while.

does he have a social issue, maybe he needs to see how "normal" people interact. have fun with him and enjoy the family time

Talk to your parents about this - they might want to help your brother but at the same time they out you at unease.

Hopefully your brother won't bother you guys and hope he's a cool guy!

I feel like if he was a cool guy he would havw friends of his own.

Sounds mostly like they want a chaperone for you.
