    Things I resent about my cousin

    He came to live with us from way out of town. I normally don't do this, but I'm under lots of stress right now. Bear with me bc I resent these about him:

    1. He takes the car with him all the time and it's not even his.
    2. He hogs the computer and iPad, which I need for work.
    3. He deflates the water bottle after he finished drinking from it. So annoying.
    4. He showed up at my workplace to bring me lunch.
    5. Generally treating me like I'm younger than I am.

    How can I stop all this?!

    Talk to him? You can't expect a person to see your side, when they don't know what it is. He probably doesn't think beyond the moment he's doing something. Unaware of the big picture. Just as with significant others, you need communication!

    Get together and create a schedule for the car.
    Same with the computer and Ipad. Make a schedule. And stick to it.
    Get him his own water bottle and explain that his habits irritate you. Tell him to use his bottle and his bottle only.
    Personally, I think the lunch thing is sweet. But if it bothers you, tell him to stop. Or let him bring you lunch on a scheduled day....say Wednesdays!
    The age thing....that's hard to stop. He needs to see that you are an adult and expect to be treated as such. Turn about is fair play! Treat him as he is treating you. But first....talk to him.
    The day you walked into my life, it became complete.

    I have to agree with both Jenny and Autumn and their suggestion you should talk to your cousin. It's always stressful when people come and stay, everyone concerned is so used to doing things their own way that even the little things in life can start to niggle. So if you don't try and sort things out now, you'll just end up feeling worse x
