It is annoying, but she’s a child.  You have to keep that in mind for right now.  She’ll grow up in the next few years (hopefully) and you will be able to have a good relationship with her.

Sounds like she has a textbook case of being 17. Don’t take it to heart, we were all like that.

@Pinksapphire:  this +1. At seventeen, 30 seems ancient. I’m 31 (I’ll be 32 by the time I’m married) and when I think back to being a teenager…I felt like someone in their 30’s was SO old. It seems funny to her now, but as she gets older she will quickly realize that age is but a number.

It’s annoying, but also harmless in the grand scheme of things. It’s not worth worrying about too much.

Being a little and *ahem* much younger sister myself…..I remember doing the same thing at her age!!!!!  (its 13yrs difference between me and my older sister too!!!)

I remember enjoying and watching my sisters reaction to my comments!!!

She is just doing it to get a rise out of you…..its the easiest way for her to do so!!!

Just let her see it doesn’t phase you and she’ll soon find it boring!!!

good luck!!

Yup, that’s what I’d say too.  Try not to worry about it!

Why wait for your mother to put her in check… do it yourself! lol. I would of told my sister off a long time ago.  There’s a reason I don’t have my sister as a bridesmaid. 😛

Oh wow she sounds…….like a typical 17 year old.

I think, whether we remember it or not most of us at some point in our lives thought we were going to be kids/young forever. And when you’re 17 you think 30 is “old” and sooooo far away.

One day the reality will kick in, and by then she will have no doubt forgotten how she acted.

Just be the mature one (which you are) in this situation and take no notice nor take it to heart.

Yes, typical thinking for a 17 yr old BUT it is rude to verbalize. As you said “she can be quite rude to my parents too”.  Rudeness is wrong no matter what age and she shouldn’t be allowed to get away with these comments.

Sounds to me like a typical 17 year old. My fiance is 26, I’m 23, and his sister is 17 and she drives us mental! So I can only imagine how nuts your sister is driving you!

I personally find I get this in reverse at my work. The 40/50 something women always make remarks about me being a baby and me fiance and I being too young for marriage/children. I have to laugh at it each time as they don’t know me and haven’t even met my fiance.

As for the sister again – I choose to ignore her. She is really mad as my partner doesn’t want her at the wedding. I thought at first he should invite her, but then realised he doesn’t make decisions lightly, and now completely respect his choice.

@fresitachulita:  Dang, what a jerk.  Remind her that she’ll be that age someday and won’t that be fun, right?
