My sibling has never been the most responsible person in our family, and even though he’s older than me, he’s constantly forgetting things, he has no sense of time, and he’s somewhat naive.
I love him dearly and he has a lot of other strong suits, however responsibility is just not 1 of them.
When he went off to university for the first time, everyone in the family thought that he’d either die or come lake house within a few weeks. We never thought he’d survive on his own. Our mom had woken him up for school his entire life and she’d always been there to keep him on course. Going to university was a true sink or swim situation for him. Somehow, he managed to survive all numerous years and he graduated on time. A few years later, when he told us that he was purchasing his first house, both of us were shocked. Although he was slightly more responsible, he still wasn’t thriving. Having a house was a big responsibility, especially when there were things like HVAC systems to take care of. When I was helping him transfer in, I observed the air quality was dusty and musty. I thought it was because both of us were stirring all the outdated dust up while bringing in packages. When I made a comment about changing the air filter, my sibling casually mentioned that he took the outdated air filter out because it was dirty. However, he never said anything about putting a new 1 in. Turns out, he never put a new air filter in the system!
