Most of us talk about sibling rivalry as something of a joke – sure, we’re competitive but at the end of the day we love each other and a win for one of us is a win for everyone, right?

4. This whole thing just hurts my heart.

I hope they can find a way to communicate better in the future.

3. There are way too many of these.

Get on with all of the best parts of having sisters, yeah?

2. Looks aren’t everything, though.

You could always be the smart and successful one.

1. Yes, they’re already aware.

Dudes need to get better conversation skills, for real.

It’s so fun to get a peek behind the curtain of other people’s relationships, don’t you think?
