Some siblings are impossible to live with even for a week or is it all in the mind?

Picture this: All your diaries read and with uninvited commentary on every page. Not a drawer unchecked, clothes missing, and the pointless tantrums that come no matter what you do. Add to that the awareness of impending violence. What do we have here? A sibling bully.
The kind that imposes his/her friends on you, will talk to you when you are obviously busy doing (trying to do) something else, will mind it if you don't/do talk back, will express minding it by attacking you (scratch you bleeding, punch you, kick you ... charge). Always whining, screaming and when s/he's not talking, your mother is, about her/him. Except you have no money or a bike/car/bus-card/pass so there's no apparent way out. Now if this sibling were a child it would be all right to put up with the bedlam but shouldn't grownups play civil? Is it civil to try&leave or to put up with it?

Yes because... No because...

Solution: Intern, work or volunteer in a foreign country for the week

You'll do something constructive, you'll get paid experience and you won't have to deal with this person. [[http://www.eslcafe.com/jobs/china/index.cgi?read=24197]]

It's too risky, too soon and one should be tolerant. It's only a week?

We are all different

We all have differences, that's written in our genes, we can't change that. There is the possibility that they think way differently from us. Due to variation siblings can have completely different habits, characteristics and nature. Take for example you have to share a room with your sibling and he/she snores very loudly, what will you do about that. Then if he/she has the habit of blowing his/her nose while brushing teeth in the sink and there is only one sink in the house and you like to do a little exercise in the morning like filling up the sink and try to hold your breathe under the water while you do your mouth washing, how can you do that after knowing that a while ago your sibling just blew his/her chunks in that very sink, yuck.

Also it's mainly younger siblings due to hormones and education stress

yes it is true some siblings are hard to handle

I know many siblings whose parents leave them to us because of their behaviour.....it is pathetic to control them and when they are a liability on us I won't hesitate to slap that kid tight on face and tell him to get lost.....

Maybe you should try and accommodate him/her

One has to draw the line somewhere. It's 24/7 nonstop you can't make breakfast, you can't go-to the bathroom, you can't brush your hair, you can't brush your teeth, you can't wear makeup, you can't change your clothes, you are not safe in the shower, that woman/man is everywhere. All your schedules are in irresolute chaos. You have no time for yourself. And the 'me me me' chant never stops and it's F you, I've had a heck of a lot more problems than you've had and I frankly don't care. [[http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0477078/parentalguide]]

Surely you can listen to some amount of tire-screech whining-wailing for a week? Surely you can try to be pleasant, tolerant and sympathetic?

You've had a week-long migraine before, haven't you? Think of him/her as cheese. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._D._Salinger]]
