So earlier one of my siblings called me on my mobile (bearing in mind his room is literally just below mine) and asked me to take him out at 2200 hrs; this is how the conversation went.

  • Him: Hello?
  • Me: Yeah, what do you want?
  • Him: Can you take me to Munchies (a fast food joint about a 15-minute walk away)?
  • Me: Excuse me?
  • Him: Yeah take me to Munchies!
  • Me: So, you want me to stop what I’m doing, take you and your friends somewhere it’ll take you 5 minutes to cycle to?
  • Him: Yeah.
  • Me: And am I just supposed to wait whilst your food is prepared?
  • Him: Yeah.
  • Me: So you also want me to bring you home?
  • Him: Well yeah, obviously.
  • Me: I see, and what’s in it for me?
  • Him: I’ll buy you a drink.
  • Me: *Laughs* Hmm, I don’t think so. Why don’t you just go down to the kitchen and eat what was left over from dinner (chicken)?
  • Him: Ah yeah. *Hangs up*.

I am pretty used to this sort of behaviour from said sibling, but this was just absurd.

Apologies for nothing of particular interest today but this may make someone smile.

Thanks for reading!

P.s. Pinch, punch, first of the month!
