He is the only boy in a large family of all girls. My parents always gave him a lot of leeway attitude wise because they felt bad for him being the only boy- so he has a decent size ego, along with being a 21 year old guy. But we were very close growing up, shared a room, he used to wait for me to to get home from school everyday, I host his birthday dinner every year, and I have always been supportive of him. He is VERY book smart and a great college athlete. However he is lacking in the 'people skills' department, if that makes sense.
I went to college but am a SAHM. My DH works a demanding job and is gone a lot. We also have a 16 month old who is asthmatic and on a nebulizer and albuterol inhaler, so I feel it is best to keep her home. It has been very up and down with her health and she spent most of her first year sick.
So I found my brother's Twitter and he posted a tweet about me-
'I am going to follow in my sister's footsteps and waste my college education being a home maker. Dead ass.'
This is the kid who when no one would hire him locally this summer because of his athletic schedule we paid him $10/hr to clean out our basement and do other chores so he could take his GF somewhere nice. Now unfortunately I come from one of those families where most of the people are arcastic jerks to one another, but out of all of my siblings I am surprised my brother publicly insulted me like that. Our Mom was a SAHM, or worked nights so she could be home during the day.
I don't have a Twitter so I can't retweet to call him out. I don't know that I even would. I feel like if I showed my parents/siblings the tweet they would make excuses and brush me off. Also he's 21 what would they even do or say.
I guess I am looking for some perspective. Would you be hurt? As far as I could see he tweeted some crappy stuff about our family in general but I was the only one he mentioned specifically. I probably won't say anything to anyone but my DH. I mean I know it's the age and the way my parents raised him and the fact that he's never really worked or been on his own so he's fairly immature. It is still hurtful though.
