Teenager outraged by older brother’s ‘selfish’ request: ‘I started to cry’

A 16-year-old girl couldn’t believe it when her 28-year-old brother suggested she get rid of her childhood pet. She went on Reddit’s "Am I the A******" forum to see if she overreacted. The teenager’s pet is a macaw named Blue. Macaws tend to make loud noises but her family has never minded. However, her brother John’s new girlfriend Emily doesn’t like the bird at all. One day John cornered her to talk about Blue. "He asked me what I was going to do with him since I was going to college," the user explained. "I was confused, because I already told my family that I was going to a nearby college, that I could quickly drive to and still live at home". "But then here’s what got me: He said Emily found a family that could take him in". Reddit users were not fond of Emily’s behavior. "Her actions are extremely selfish," one user commented
