I grew up in a pretty hectic household. There were seven of us under one roof and, as you can probably imagine, there was a whole lot of thievery going on between the three boys and two girls.
It was like a cage match. I steal from you, you steal from her, he steals from me…the game just went on and on and on…and our parents were too busy to get involved in our shenanigans so it was up to work it out and bring each other justice…and sometimes it got ugly.
But it was also a lot of fun! At least I remember it that way when I look back on it…
If you have siblings, these funny tweets about stealing from each other might look very familiar…
1. I’ll take that!
Thank you very much!
When I was 26 years old, I was home visiting my parents and sleeping in my younger sister’s (who was 23 at the time) childhood room. I found the box she kept her spare change. I took it – had over $100 in loose coins! – and had a very fancy haircut.

2. That was not cool.
Not cool at all…
my sister rationed her halloween candy for months and my brother and i slowly ate it all https://t.co/3QNrz5wQmQ

3. I’d still be mad, too!
How could you?!?!
I ate all the chocolate out of my sister’s Halloween candy stash. This was probably at least 15 years ago, and she’s still mad about it. https://t.co/C4UqPfg23K

4. Let’s keep this somewhere safe.
Away from your dirty, prying hands.
I stole so much of my sister's allowance it drove her (with our mother's help) to open a bank account https://t.co/UgERO0B46s

5. It took her a while to catch on, huh?
She was a little bit slow on the uptake.
My sister had a bag of clothes she was going to try and sell and I really liked some of the shirts so I would wear them and put them back after washing them and I did this like 6x before she found out and yelled at me https://t.co/93N5P7yNOt

6. It may be minor, but I’m still impressed.
Good on you!
Mine is minor but I one time paid my brother to get off the couch and let me watch TV by stealing 5 dollars from his wallet and giving it back to him.

7. She probably didn’t mind too much.
All I’m saying is that most kids don’t really enjoy broccoli.
The dinner at a Chinese buffet when I took every piece of broccoli off my sister’s plate one by one without her noticing. https://t.co/RRJKIWSA5u

8. This is classic.
What happened to that creepy clown doll?
I saw Poltergeist when I was 11 and my sister was a baby. I stole a clown doll she had and buried it in the woods to protect her from it.
I felt guilty whenever anyone mentioned the doll but also fiercely certain I did the right thing.

9. I hope you paid her back in EPIC fashion.
We need to have a little talk…
One summer I noticed someone was cashing random $20 cheques from my account. It went on for months. I went to the bank and they produced a photocopy of one of the signed cheques. I recognized my sister’s handwriting immediately, nodded to clerk and left.

10. None of this stuff looks familiar, does it?
These gifts are from me to you…with love.
I am the youngest of 4 girls. Their favorite belongings would disappear around the beginning-middle of December, just to reappear, carefully wrapped in comics, under the Christmas tree, from their loving baby sister. 😂

11. I would be annoyed at the inventory, too.
This sounds like an intense sibling relationship.
My sister used to keep a written inventory of her Halloween candy so she would know if any was taken
And I still took it because the inventory annoyed me and a general attitude of "I already ate it, so now what?"
