Not seen or heard from my brother for 4 months after a falling out over me looking after his son then gets a text last night as though nothing happened saying he has card for us and can he call round in half hour to drop off and also pick up wii nunchuck he gave me over 5 years ago and that he'll have kids in car (ages 4 and 1 at 8pm?!?) so he'll just stop and grab. I text back saying sold all wii stuff couple months ago didn't realise anything was his then I got a really nasty text saying I now owe him a nunchuck immediately and that he's so furious with me and I've had it years etc I felt angry at this point and text back karmas a bitch that's exactly how I felt when I lent your gf a fancy dress outfit waited two years to get it back and it was ruined and that I was poorly please don't text again I don't need your shit just before Xmas. I've done loads for him over the years, given him stuff for house helped him doing cvs job prep interviews, saved his house for him doing all legal stuff when ex trying to stiff him the list is endless. His gf doesn't like me is nasty and blanks me but goes overboard Trying to speak to my kids and partner. Gets this text off him: 'It's always all about You isn't it, if karma really is a bitch then you should get yourself to hospital you may die! Don't text me ever again you make me poorly with your shit, maybe you've swallowed too much of your own shit and that's why you're ill? Goodbye and fuck your card! THE END' I feel really upset as I interpret this that he's saying I deserve to die? Am I overreacting? Feel very upset and partner very angry with him

Just reply with 'OK 😂'

Let him know you don't give a shit and take the piss a bit.

He sounds like an utter arsehole. And no I don't think yabu to be upset by it.

You both sound about 12. Grown adults bickering over a nunchuck and a fancy dress outfit?! You sound like you both enjoy the drama.

TheWitTank Fri 23-Dec-16 13:24:38

Just leave it. Don't reply..

Nocabbageinmyeye Fri 23-Dec-16 13:24:41

Nah just laugh at him "THE END" is he your eight year old brother?? 😂 idiot. It's clearly the text of someone very immature so I wouldn't take it to heart too much

TripTrapTripTrapOverTheBridge Fri 23-Dec-16 13:24:41

He's not saying you deserve to die, he's saying you've given out enough sh*t for that to be your comeuppance. Slightly different.

You shouldn't have gone off on one as you did. Neither should he,but you effectively started an argument.

Anyway, what's the betting that he's got the kids a Wii game that they'll need the nunchuck for and he didn't buy onegrin

Don't reply. I have a brother like this and it's honestly not worth it. Ignore him and get on with your day. He sounds like an arse but don't feed the beast by replying.

Families. Jesus

Fire squirrel the only reason I said this was highlighting how pathetic his text was in relation to a nunchuck does that mean I deserve to be wished dead?

Heirhelp Fri 23-Dec-16 13:27:06

It all sounds very childish. Just don't reply.

What's a nunchuck?

dollyshouse Fri 23-Dec-16 13:28:16

I haven't replied am too upset to do so and the fact that I've sold the nunchuck is summed up as enough shit to warrant deserving to die wtf

VeryBitchyRestingFace Fri 23-Dec-16 13:28:27

Had to google to see what a nunchuck was.

I'm so old. So very, very old. fsad

So you sold his possession, didn't bother to apologise and then started name calling. And that's the story from your point of view!
Sounds like 6 of one and half a dozen of the other.

ProudBadMum Fri 23-Dec-16 13:29:25

He's not wishing you died. He said if karma is real you'll end up dead coz of all shit you've done

Ah brothers.

IfartInYourGeneralDirection Fri 23-Dec-16 13:29:54

Christ it's all very teenage.
just wish him a merry Christmas and block his number, it's only a huge drama if you let it be one.
Life's to short for this pointless shit

They cost about £5 for a wii remote

VeryBitchyRestingFace Fri 23-Dec-16 13:31:10

His sentence wasn't particularly grammatical (who is on a phone?) but he wasn't wishing death or anihilation on you.

What he said is a bit like someone saying if looks could kill you'd be on life support.

NerrSnerr Fri 23-Dec-16 13:32:10

To be fair you should buy him a new nunchuck considering you sold his! You both sound about 12 though. He wasn't wishing you dead he was just talking about karma. It's a hell of a lot of drama.

Mynestisfullofempty Fri 23-Dec-16 13:32:56

You're both as bad as each other.

SpeakNoWords Fri 23-Dec-16 13:33:02

Honestly, you're as bad as each other. Relying with the old news about the fancy dress outfit was always going to escalate the situation. There was no need to do that. His response is obviously ridiculous too.

If you have to see each other over the Christmas period and you need to be civil for family's sake, then perhaps you could apologise for bringing up the old argument about the fancy dress, that you don't wish him any ill will, and you hope he can put this aside for the Christmas period. If you don't need to see him, then I would suggest leaving it altogether. If he contacts you again, try not to start another spat.

dollyshouse Fri 23-Dec-16 13:33:51

Let's be clear I've not done any shit to him whatsoever, in fact the total opposite over the years but you know I wouldn't dream of saying that to someone, effectively saying they deserve to die because of their actions, irrespective of what he considers them to be, I'm not a murderer or a child abuser

You're taking one silly throwaway comment awfully literally, OP.

TripTrapTripTrapOverTheBridge Fri 23-Dec-16 13:37:13

dolly you are still being a drama queen.

lougle Fri 23-Dec-16 13:37:47

You escalated things because he asked for something back and you just said 'oh I sold that...' and then sent messages about the fancy dress stuff in defence instead of apologising.
