A Losing Battle

My brother and sister used to share a room, but eventually one day she took his bed apart and put it in the garage (that’s what Milo is sleeping on now) and he moved out and has been sleeping on the couch for forever.  My parents know someone who had a futon they were getting rid of, and we were going to take it and put it in the garage so he could finally have a bedroom again, but then Sister decided she wanted a couch in her room.  My parents said, “Fine, but only if Brother can also use it as a bed”.  She agreed to this, and she and Brother and her boyfriend were all moving stuff around in there so Brother could move his bed in.  Milo and I were just standing there saying, “How long do you give her before she kicks him out again?” and “Not long at all…”.

This was Saturday.  And sure enough, yesterday Brother came complaining to me that Sister will not allow him to unfold the futon into a bed at night, so he has to sleep on it in its couch form.  Even this was okay, until she announced later that because it is always in couch form, and the couch part of it was hers, that the whole thing is hers and she doesn’t want him sleeping on it.  So he is once again on the living room couch.

Here’s the worst part–he tried to fight back, so she left a pair of her boyfriend’s underwear on the futon.  Brother refused to touch that, and I don’t blame him, and Sister absolutely refused to move it.  What is wrong in her head?  Geez.
