I’ve read that sibling fights are an important part of a child’s development because it helps them learn conflict resolution skills.
I sometimes worry that Thud is going to grow up to be that bloke in the office who lets anyone who yells really loudly have their way – because he’s grown up with Pop.
And Pop will be the one who simply cannot understand why she keeps ending up in HR for being so entitled – because her big brother has always indulged her.
But then I think about who they’ll be working with:There’s Charlotte, the chick who sulks for days whenever anyone gets a pat on the back – because her sister is only 15 months younger and she’s just SICK of sharing the limelight FFS.
And Spencer, the bloke who labels every item on his desk and in the fridge – because his little turd of a brother always took EVERYTHING off him and he’s just fucking sick of sharing, alright?
There there’s Maisie, the woman who is secretly thrilled whenever anyone stuffs up and gets in trouble – because her little brother was a spoilt little kiss-arse and the rare occasions he got in trouble were her favourite childhood memories.
There’ll be Skye, the chick who always looks like she’s about to hit the runway – because her big sister was always the pretty one and she’s still trying to compete.
Poor old Lucy won’t quit with the comedy routine – because she’s a middle child and WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE PAY ATTENTION FOR ONCE.
And Annabelle, the woman who is 25 but speaks like a 45 year old and is totally incapable of teamwork or compromise – because she has no siblings at all.
Don’t forget Hayden, the most chilled, laid-back, lazy sod who always assumes someone else will do his work for him – because he’s the youngest of 5.
In an office run by Beth. A bossy know-it-all who needs everyone to follow all the rules or everything will implode – because FIRST BORN.
