greetings.

greetings.

fluidbread

my sister just barges into my room and t-poses instead of a normal greeting.


mikhela

I knock, and then when my sister says I can come in I do the slamming door open thing and start aggressively scream-singing, *"Some* **BODY ONCE TOLD ME THE WORLD WAS GONNA ROLL ME!!!"** I can usually get through about 3 lines before she shoves me back out the door.


offtopicandStrange

I WANT TO DO THIS NOW BUT INSTEAD WITH THE SONG “I WANT IT THAT WAY” BECAUSE MY FAMILY HATES THAT SONG SO MUCH BECAUSE I LOVE IT SO MUCH


mikhela

*knock knock* Come in! ^(Tell me why) ***WHAM*** AIN'T NOTHING BUT A HEARTACHE!!!


HermioneJGranger6

Why did I read "ain't nothing but a heartache" to the tune of hounddog I read "tell me why" like I should have, and then boom, total change of tune "aint nothing but a heartache, cryin all the time"


hatredlord

Mashup time! By which i mean, hope someone else makes it, because i can't.


offtopicandStrange

**^TELL ME WHYYY**


AlucardSX

Would you say the song is your fire? Your one desire?


fluidbread

i pray my sister never reads this comment cuz then my life would be hell


Sanjay_KC

me too ~~kid~~ *stranger* me too


4sent4

Don't wait for her to do this, do it yourself :)


ShadeFK

She is trying to impose her dominance


E404_User_Not_Found

Or T-pose her dominance.


WakeoftheStorm

If she M-posed her dominance it'd be more effective


Orizifian-creator

I’m scared of what an M pose is, and what a z pose (as an example) would look like...


mmotte89

The true pose to fear would be the dreaded Æ-pose


SocDemGenZGaytheist

how many extra dimensions does that require?


DracoVoidern1

I do the same to my younger sister! ​ She said "ara ara" suddenly today for no reason and I swear I could've gotten whiplash from turning to see her and saying "NO".


Ohmec

Man, having a sibling that doesn't fucking hate you sounds awesome. I have only one brother who is only like 15 months older than me, and we fucking hate each other. I'm about to turn 30, and I literally haven't spoken to him in years, nor do I really have any desire to.


DracoVoidern1

She tried aggressively to aggressively punch me when I asked for the pc back and she called me a coward when I kinda dodged it yesterday. We aren't really close as you can see here, but that does sound way better than your relationship with your brother.


HoldingOnTight129

One thing I’ve kinda noticed with me and also random people i know is that the more playful you are with your siblings, or the more inside jokes you have when you’re young and in your teens and very young adulthood, even if you’re not that close, as you guys get older and kinda mature a bit, your relationship really strengthens!


DracoVoidern1

Oh we just reference memes and stuff behind our parents backs. We just said sus over and over once. It's one of the most fun things I've done outside of stuff in my pc.


Wide-Confusion2065

I have an older brother. We are so diametrically different that I can’t stand to be around him for more than an hour every month or so.


WeeMadCanuck

That's a real shame bro, hope you guys find a way to connect one day


sensual_shakespeare

I do this to my brother sometimes lol


[deleted]

I MUST START DOING THIS NOW. THANK YOU


clockoutgohome

My brother has been doing online school for the past year so I normally bust in there and moon him lmao he gets so pissed


SecondDomice

Sibling dynamics have evolved past the point of speech. You just annoy the fuck out of them when youre bored.


ShadeFK

All fun and games until they annoy you back when they're bored


JSB199

But then you get to annoy them back when you’re bored!


AGJustin05

and the occasional nice moments you have with them are precious, though it's not like you'd admit it.


EmperorL1ama

Nah I will admit it. My sisters are great and I genuinely can't imagine my life without them. Yes, we annoy the shit out of each other. Yes, sometimes there's no contact for months.


halfar

the true mastery of siblingery is annoying the shit out of your sibling just by existing.


darthvadercake

When I was younger, disgruntled noises were the traditional morning greeting. Or just straight up ignoring my bro


dessertpete

Don't think I've ever said good morning or anything to any of my 6 siblings


darthvadercake

My brother used to say 'good morning' every morning. My usual response was to give him dagger eyes


Town_of_Tacos

Hey, same!


Bazoun

My sister and I would sing the *Happy Anniversary” song endlessly to annoy our brother. Idk how he talks to me after that. 35 years wouldn’t be long enough for me to forgive that shit.


Greenveins

Is it normal for 30 yr olds to actually go at it? I’m fully ready to end my brother once and for all on my birthday tomorrow because he will not stop talking shit


MountainImportant211

Half the time there is no greeting, just immediate conversation


AGJustin05

I haven't said my sister's name to her face in weeks.


Nroke1

I’ll shout my siblings’ names of they are in other rooms and I need to talk to them, I have 5 siblings btw.


AGJustin05

Same. Got four younger sisters and boy, it gets rough sometimes.


Nroke1

Lol, I’m #4, one older brother, 2 older sisters, 1 younger sister, 1 younger brother. And I’m the oldest(with fully functional mental faculties) who still lives at home...


Town_of_Tacos

I polled my friends to ask what my brother’s name is, apparently he’s called Fartnuts, so I just yell that.


TheNerd669

I get that. Sometimes I forget my sisters name because it's rarely said


WolfBrother1234

Yeah same! I always forget my sister's name because she doesn't exist.


TheNerd669

Totally understandable


mikhela

The only reason I *have* is because she's in her room and I don't want to have to get up and walk down the hall


roboderp16

You only use names when calling each other from across the house


irlharvey

yeah the first time my sibling changed their name i thought it would be a weird big adjustment, but i realized i had only called them by their old name probably 10 times in my whole life


DuntadaMan

Yeah that was my thought. You live in the same place for so long it seems weird to even say "Hi" unless you are coming back from something you did alone, and even then it is a general greeting/announcement you returned to everyone rather than anyone specific.


commonjane

My little brother calls me by name but I call him Bubba


mikhela

My sister and I are 11 years apart so she's always been super short compared to me so I've called her varying synonyms of the word midget for years now. Since she's now hitting her teenage growth spurts she's nearly my height with a lot of time left for growing more, so the closer to my height she gets the more I call her demeaning short names to assert dominance.


ShadeFK

Younger siblings don't deserve names (I say as a younger sibling)


dym_sh

ok gremlin


ShadeFK

I'm 2nd tallest in my entire extended family, square up


aborted_godling

I refer to my three younger brothers as Dipshit, Dipstick, and Dumbshit. Thats in order of age lol


ItsUrDestiny04

That's pretty wholesome ngl


Arcadian1

One of my little sisters calls me that.


DreadDiana

The traditional sibling greeting is the yeeting of blunt objects at each other


RedditBoi127

or being a firing squad with nerf guns


penguinontherocks

Same thing.


weatherseed

Until *someone* discovers where mom and dad keep the thumb tacks.


RedditBoi127

that's when it gets fun


Greenveins

I pulled up on our reunion with a big ass nerf gun to drive-by my brother who just returned home from a tour and I missed and shot my fucking 11 yr old cousin in the eye. Put a end to that REAL quick


notKRIEEEG

The only apropriate solution is to give your cousin a nerf gun and let him join in on the fun


darthvadercake

Or "GET OUT OF THE BATHROOM YOU NUMBNUTS, I AM GONNA BE LATE FOR SCHOOL"


BlackScienceMan420

Nice hustle tons of fun! next time eat a salad!


Sn0w-L0ck

Yo cool profile picture my guy/gal


Lostfelinejet

sandvich


akatherder

"WHy is ur school in the bathroom?"


ChocolatBear

***BAM BAM BAM*** HURRY THE FUCK UP, I HAVE TO GET READY FOR WORK


LovableContrarian

numbnuts? is your sibling a time traveler from 1992?


jwillsrva

That or they were children then


darthvadercake

Well my sibling and I are both thirties and no longer living together (thank the lord) but we're dutch, so I just used dutch insults


SandwhichofRage

Correct. “What’s up loser?” *empty box to the back of the head* “What the fuck bro? Mom told me to tell you to take out the trash so go fuck your self on the curb”


StandardCaterpillar9

Oh yes. Or giving them a random slap on the back when you pass them.


princessgoulash

I tried "Greetings, whore" with my sister and got the following response http://imgur.com/gallery/xAjpTBG


Comicbookday

Less humorous, but I think it’s more commonly “Mom said you have to come inside”


Shadofe1

Me and my sister flip each other off whenever we see each other


YeetTheRich

Unless…


Makingnamesishard12

Or just skipping the throwing blunt objects part and just start trying to kill, maim, dismember or horribly wound your sibling while screaming like a banshee because that’s what siblings do.


Gongaloon

"Yo Sis" "***EEEEEEE^EEEEEEE^^EEEEEEE***"


justpassingthrou14

My brother and I wrestled. Occasionally we yeeted objects. More commonly, we yeeted each other.


EternalGodLordRetard

Hard to do that when your younger sister is 7 and a half years younger than you the older brother so all I can wield are insults.


MLGkid_HD

Or throwing a knife at a metal sugar dispenser (yes, that actually happened, my sister threw it so hard that it has a hole)


ItsTtreasonThen

My sister threw a glass soap dispenser at my brother. Thing was weirdly solid and it didn’t shatter, it just chipped. If it had hit hed probably have a dent in him lol


claiter

My sister threw a day old roll at me. The bread was so hard it shattered the glass of water I was holding.


[deleted]

Or just body slamming right into them and then asking where mom put the hair dryer


Whitethumbs

I've definitely hit my brother with an orange as a greeting.


OV1C

Mine is barge into room with no knocks, flop down next to me and annoy the fuck out of me or I yeet them off and then battle enguarde style with newspapers or five sentences in we're screaming at each other and crying There is no peace


immaheadout3000

It's a "lovetap" on the head...


fuchsgesicht

middle finger salute if your being cordial


Faithfulservant12378

“Hey.” “What do you want now.?”


vanilla_latte00

😄 Also, "Hey." "Ugh, what!"


dessertpete

I literally answer my phone "what" when any of my siblings call


mahkidneystone

When I get a call from my sister I always say “Who is this?” And then she says the same back. And then I say “You called ME!” And she says “No, you called ME! Who is this??” After a few rounds of this, she just starts talking about whatever she called about.


NeopolitanVagina

Omg I love this


witchelina

Or instant denial. "Hey" "I didn't take your chocolate, go away!"


Astronaut_Chicken

My husband yells "Balls and weiners!" Like its the business they called.


joec_95123

This was my first thought also. In my family it goes like this. Neutral: >"Hey" >"What?" More common. >"Hey" >"What the fuck do you want?"


PrizeStrawberryOil

My personal favorite "Get the fuck out of my house."


SugondeseAmerican

Me and my sisters always smile, act excited to see each other, and give each other a hug. It's a passive aggressive, narcissistic way of pretending we have functional relationships with each other. Whoever breaks the facade is an aggressor and a very bad person.


search_for_wholesome

Me greeting my twinsister is always a match on who can be the most awkward. Very short, quick handwaves from a pretty big distance. When they get closer I look at her with very big eyes. Three seconds before she reaches me I turn around and walk away. Or I say 'girl' in a very bored manner.


maybebabyg

My friend once burst into her parents' house with a basket of wet laundry and greeted her younger twin with "I COME FROM 3 MINUTES IN THE FUTURE WITH THIS MESSAGE OF GREAT IMPORT! My dryer is broken."


search_for_wholesome

Lol, my twinsister does something similar sometimes: 'when I was your age... *tells about what she did 7 minutes ago*'


FlamingRevenge

Oh god now I wish I could do that. That sounds like an amazing joke that would get old fast but still be kinda funny.


LemonBoi523

I do similar with my family! I don't know why I speak both formal and broken english. "Father, I require The Help" for example


Town_of_Tacos

Instead of telling my brother that it’s time to stop, I say “Now it is time sfopper the.” Yes, with an F. I don’t even remember how that started.


alexlongfur

“Sup, Fuckwit” is how I address my brother


duey_rando

I have 3 sisters. But my younger sister I actually greet with "Hey sis"


LemonBoi523

Yeah, I greet my siblings by titles but it is impossible for me to say "sis" or "bro." It's always sistah, brover, or the gender neutral siblong "Hello? Sistah of mine?" or "brover it is time to consume the dinner"


primarilymadeofjuice

HELP BROTHER I AM PINNED


Tyrus

IT'S THE BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNEEEEEEBLLAAAAAAAAAAAAADDDEEEE!


roboderp16

If only I could get mine to like Warhammer


largeEoodenBadger

THERE IS NO TIME TO BE LOST! BATTLE BROTHERS!


rijoys

We call eachother "sneesters" as odd as it sounds haha


MightGetFiredIDK

My brothers and I do the Buster Bluth "Heeey brother."


Shifter25

I had a friend in college who would put on an accent and go LEETLE SEEEESTERRRRR


61114311536123511

for me and my brother we always address each other as brözah (properly pronouncing the ö the German way)


TrueRusher

Same sometimes. My nephews greet each other with “bro” and “brother” sometimes. It’s really cute. The 5-year-old will yell “hey brother! Come here!” and the (almost) 7-year-old will go “coming brother!” I smile every time. It’s so adorable


JBSquared

Are your nephews Hulk Hogan, brother?


nebula561

This sounds so sweet and adorable! Hopefully they keep that relationship as they grow up.


ByTheHammerOfThor

Because you ran out of normal greetings.


duey_rando

There it is.


nebula561

My bro calls me “bro” sometimes (I’m his younger sister - he just gets on a roll and it feels like he’s talking to one of his boys so then I become “bro”. Doesn’t bother me)


hopperella

Last week I started a text to my sister, “Hey, booger-eater…” We are both in our 40’s.


EllaMcWho

Brother 1 is shitbird (which my dad coined when baby bro was an infant for obvious reasons) Brother 2 is asshole or grumpy when I’m feeling nice Sister is Sister Angel (she’s perfect and the golden child so it’s annoying to her) We are also all in our 40s.


Traskk01

My sister calls me Jeremiah Jenkins. Neither of those is my actual name.


JoyouslyMe

I call my non-biological siblings little sister and little brother and they both call me big sis. It’s a step brother and a sister in law. It’s more of a “I want you to know I consider you my real sibling- fuck genetics” term of endearment. My actual blood sibling- nah- fuck that guy.


HarrisonRyeGraham

My stepbrother also calls me sis. But neither of my biological brothers do. I’ll address them as “brother” ironically on occasion though. “Greetings, brother mine. How fare thee” etc.


AlfredtheDuck

The more I think about it, the more I’m disappointed that writers don’t just have siblings say “hey, mom wants you to do ___” or something because that establishes a shared parent and from there the audience knows what’s up.


yammys

This is a good solution. No one else here is even acknowledging the need for exposition.


mikhela

Yeah, I agree. The whole dynamic written from the post is supposed to give exposition. But exposition is one of those things where if you do it even barely left of seamlessly, the entire section is thrown off balance. But come *ooooonnnnn.* There are so many better ways of telling your reader that two people are siblings.


[deleted]

[удалено]


OverlordGtros

"One day you'll learn that talking like you need to provide exposition for an unseen audience is a really irritating trait that will leave you alone and unloved, Bob, my 19 year old and weirdly obsessed with his family member's level of attractiveness brother."


h4ppy60lucky

[my favorite part of a film is exposition](https://youtu.be/IQew6ZWJtfI)


squigeypops

Even saying "\[MC\] slammed open his brother's door...."


arczclan

The other solution is introduce them as siblings in a situation with a third party, “where’s your sister?”


roganwriter

I normally just say it in narration, instead of dialogue when I’m writing a book. But, on TV it’s different so having them ask about something their parents makes a lot of sense.


Sneakas

I think they do this for like 95% of movies and TV. I’m my mind the hey bro/sis line is pretty rare but it sticks out when it happens


OtokonoKai

Me and my siblings constantly refer to eachother as brother or sister, slowly devolves into bruber, sibster or seeeeeestor


ThginkAccbeR

I use seeeestor all the time with my sister. It’s required, I think.


Mafatuuthemagnificen

Are you sure you’re not me? That’s exactly how my sister an I are


nobikflop

It's always a "heaůý síìš" from me. Which gets a "hìíìí brøøther" in response.


Alan_antictrl

Me and my sister literally overuse the word Bitch so much it’s like “hey Bitch how was your day” not even joking


KatCLed

I was trying to get my sisters attention one time and I shouted "Hey McBitchFace!" She wasn't upset that I called her that name, she was upset because she heard me call my dog that the week before when she got into the trash. Like offended she didn't get her own unique insult. Lol


Twilight_Wolf_24

Sibling 1: "Hey." Sibling 2 (groaning): "What?" Sibling 1: "I just wanted to see if you know where (insert item here) is..." Sibling 2: "I don't know, go ask mum. Get the fuck outta my room."


Cristunis

Sibling 1 standing in the doorway "I'm not in your room."


Gabbie_B28

The rage that sentence just brought me


Town_of_Tacos

Goddammit. Happens to me every fucking time. Then I just tell him to get out of my sight.


Cristunis

My youngest sister would say "Just don't look at me and then I'm not on your sight." to that.


Town_of_Tacos

My brother would stand just out of view and pound the walls. While I was working.


Eternity-crown

My brother greets me by flipping me off


Ivory_0103

I greet my brother by flipping him off, he does the same to me


dym_sh

peace among worlds was never an option


noobductive

I just use their name


RandomDrawingForYa

Ugly or her nickname. Sistah if I'm being annoying.


Banana-Louigi

“G’day knackers/numb nuts” or “whatd’ya want dickhead?”


Djehbruh

The one true Australian sibling greeting


Sambuism

‘Hey’ is way too respectful and loving to be used to address your siblings.


xxthegirlwhowaitedxx

“Yo hooker” “What bitch?” My sister and I are in our 30s and this is much nicer than we ever addressed each other when we were growing up. Our little brother is 12 and normally we greet him as hey brat. Or hey munchkin, hey monster, etc etc. If we’re in person we’ll just grab him and lick his face. Cause siblings.


Masterpotato002

If you greet each other with "hey" your not close enough


darthvadercake

Yeah, if you actually get on with them it should be 'hey bitchface' Or if you don't get on, it could be like 'good morning!' 'What?'


Niz99

'Hey ugly' is the go to phrase for me and my sibling.


presspowerbutton

I usually reserve it for when I'm too exhausted from work to form a cogent insult.


vanilla_latte00

Do siblings who live together actually even greet each other? I remember either just ignoring each other or annoying the hell out of each other. One of the two extremes


Cristunis

My big brother did greet me. But only when he wanted to tell that he is going to take a shit.


[deleted]

[удалено]


linsilou

I was only clued into my big bro's shit schedule when he would trick me into the bathroom afterwards and lock me in from the outside. Life was pain being a girl with two older brothers...


ItsAPandaGirl

No. No we don't. We don't even pay attention to each other. Both of us could be downstairs and I won't notice until I leave or something.


roganwriter

I ignore my little brother unless I’m bored tbh. And he’s normally ignores me unless he needs something. Only time we talk is during family dinner or when we’re playing a game together


Chaudsss

You guys are greeting your sibling ??? We communicate with smacks to the neck


cherrycake45

*stares* "What" "Mom said come get your food"


insert-g00d-name

I have a foam tennis ball and a real tennis ball, my mood determines which one I throw at them in greeting


Thritzer

now that I think about it I dont ever greet my siblings we just start talking.


DarkAndSparkly

Whatup, bitch? Nothing, asshole! Me and my baby bro.


fiofo

My sister & I just ignored each other, and when mum asked "aren't you going to say hello to each other" we both responded with "it was implied"


raznov1

I mean, I "hey broertje" and "hey zusje" my siblings all the time


noobductive

Ja maar Nederlanders zijn gewoon raar daar kunt ge niks aan doen


pringlesprinssi

i say ”sup bruh” to my brother and he replies ”sup” with a upwards nod. we’re not english speakers, but i don’t greet him in our native language like ever. only in english.


mirrormimi

Same, not native speakers but we greet each other in intentionally broken English and curse words.


Squippit

*velociraptor screeches*


AllWomenAreQueens-_-

“Bitch” “Jerk”


Masterpotato002

One of my brothers loves to jump scare me any chance he got (I am easily shocked) and I would customary try to kick him at least 3 times.


FishwolfSpellsword

I just yell a variant of EA SPORTS ITS IN THE GAME


Adrienskis

My siblings and I each have 7.5 years apart from each other (myself in the middle) so my lil sis calls me bubby, I call her hunnybunny, and I call my older sister by her name, and she calls me by my name as well. Sometimes we use nick names, but that’s mostly it. Age separations make siblings nicer.


inhaledcorn

Hey, bitch. Or Did you go through my fucking drawers again?! At least close them, so it's not so obvious!


RazorSlazor

Greetings inferior sperm. *t-poses *


LeiaKasta

The sibling greeting has four forms. 1.) head nod/casual hey - nothing that major, general acknowledgment of other's existence. sometimes a casual offer to play a game or something, no big event. 2.) random burst of energy - something exciting has happened so it's one sibling freaking out about something and the other needs to know, or one sibling has wronged the other and the other needs to know. either way, there will probably be raised voices 3.) "I have an idea" - this is either the start of a bribe or the start of a team-up that will be annoying to others and hilarious to the pair 4.) chaos - this is completely random energy, sometimes words aren't even said. one person is on a particular wavelength at the moment, and the other either has no clue what is going on and is weirded out, or you are both on the same wavelength and run off to confuse people by being completely confusing and in sync. this is my personal favorite, and the best instances of this is when neither person really knows what they're doing but are enjoying it anyways. i have never called my sibling "sis", I don't know what would happen if I did. just thinking about doing that feels very weird to me


Zalhei

Insults as greeting is pretty popular with my brothers and i


SoupRiceNotBig

"Hey bro bro :3" "I fucking hate you" "Love you too ;3"


AlpacaMan104

Just screeching


midnight-sun1309

me to my brother: hey fuckass my brother to me: sup bitch face it's just natural, us with siblings are just like that


ayoungtommyleejones

My older brother once walked into my room when I was doing homework and just... Farted in my face


Bordkant

"Hey, brother" plus a light shoulder massage


wellyousee-

Look at each other. Pause. Make peace sign with hand. Laugh. Continue with each other activities.


Crystal-Cradle

Sup shortie, sup bro, hey bro, oi shortie, midget, loser


ThginkAccbeR

Me and my brother: Hey J! Hey! Me and my sister: Seeeeessstooorrrrr. (To each other.)
