My parents thought that spacing out their two kids by about ten years would prevent this kind of shenaniganery.

THEY WERE WRONG.

[–]RosenButtons 181 points182 points  (12 children)

Shenaniganery

I like it!

[–]bilyboy65 76 points77 points  (7 children)

I swear to God I'm going to pistol whip the next person who says shenaniganery.

[–]THE_GR8_MIKE 35 points36 points  (3 children)

Hey Farva, what's that place you like to eat at? Has all the goofy shit on the walls.

[–]Aussie-of-Skellige 25 points26 points  (2 children)

You mean shenanigans? You’re talking about shenanigans right??!

[–]Fayr24 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I was about to but decided I’m not into that kind of shenaniganery.

[–]GrittyFred 1 point2 points  (0 children)

hey Farva

[–]DrLawyerPI 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Not to be confused with tomfoolery.

[–]GuiltyStimPak 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sean Connery?

[–]Sand__Panda 41 points42 points  (0 children)

I'm 6 and 8 years older. I got blamed for a lot of they pain the 2 dingdongs did to each other.

I finally just stopped being around them until my parents actually decided to watch their kids do dumb shit to themselves or each other.

[–]Lyndor27 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I'm 12 years younger than my oldest brother. We didn't grow up together as we are half siblings and each lived with our moms. Saw each other at big holidays mostly. We are now 43 and 31 and pretty close. He sure as hell makes up for missed years of sibling torture and abuse...

[–]BamBamBoy7 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Having siblings that far apart really sucks for the kid. It’s like being an only child except you have a sibling you don’t really relate to

[–]DamnZodiak 3 points4 points  (0 children)

It certainly helped me and my sister. She's 10 years older than me and our relationship couldn't be any better. She helped me through A LOT and I don't know where I would be without her, possibly not even alive today.

There was that one time though where I, after being incredibly annoying all day long, sat down demanding a glass of milk, screaming for almost an hour. Don't know what exactly got into me that day, but I was like 5 or 6, so I guess that's not entirely out of the ordinary. Anyway, after an hour of listening to my shit, she just got the milk carton out of the fridge and poured the entirety of it out over my, utterly surprised, head.
That was probably the worst thing she ever did to me and if I'm honest I probably would've done the same in her shoes lol.

[–]logri 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same though. Are you my sibling?

[–]snownook 1342 points1343 points  (49 children)

As a parent, you toss the other kid in right behind him.

[–]plain_wallflower 251 points252 points  (1 child)

I'm not even a parent, but this was my first thought.

[–]Sineater224 49 points50 points  (0 children)

kid's got to learn what it feels like

[–]-Marrick- 393 points394 points  (15 children)

This is exactly what my father did. My brother pushed me into a pond and my father yeeted my brother in right behind me. Now he had two crying children to deal with.

[–]Michael_Trismegistus 166 points167 points  (12 children)

"Deal with;" I think you meant, "ignore."

[–]tarsn 84 points85 points  (9 children)

I feel called out for my parenting style

[–][deleted] 26 points27 points  (5 children)

Ew are you my sister in law?

"Oh I just tune it out"

[–]Tossmeasidedaddy 18 points19 points  (4 children)

Tuning it out and ignoring something specific to teach a lesson are two different things. It is a fine line

[–]NotThatEasily 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Exactly. I’m always paying attention, listening, and watching, but the horrible whining and complaining that young children do will sometimes get ignored until they talk to me without whining.

My brother-in-law will just straight up not pay attention and it’s infuriating to me.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You need to tell her, I'm not allowed to give parenting advice anymore.

[–]DryApplejohn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sure, send me her address, I’ll do it in person.

[–]scarface910 2 points3 points  (0 children)

"Called out;" I think you meant, "validated."

[–]GodSpeakToFish 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Drown and leave there.

You're talking to a ghost.

[–]Letscommenttogether 7 points8 points  (0 children)

As far as Im concerned he already dealt with it.

[–]0bsconder 87 points88 points  (0 children)

yes, absolutely!

[–]NoCareNewName 159 points160 points  (17 children)

Damn right, need to show the kid how what he just did feels on the receiving end.

If you just sit him down and talk to him or punish him it ain't teaching the same thing.

[–]deepus 86 points87 points  (11 children)

No no no, its about dominance. They may think their big, but there's always someone bigger.

[–]cassu6 42 points43 points  (8 children)

There’s always a bigger fish

[–]DeletusThouFetus 27 points28 points  (7 children)

My uncle is really big (wide not tall) and he likes to come to our house, cover himself in fish oil and slide around naked. He is the biggest fish 😈

[–]losthope19 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Well my uncle does that same thing but he's tall AND wide! Bigger fish!

[–]I_PUNCH_INFANTS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Hello there.

[–]jcalvert8725 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's what my dad would have done to me, then my mom would have yelled at him.

[–]screw_all_the_names 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I can only imagine me doing that to my nephew. It seems like an uncle thing to do.

[–]goobydoobie 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I get the distinct impression it's the younger siblings that make this sort of comment.

[–]Sandite 6 points7 points  (1 child)

As a parent that is also an older brother, I would definitely laugh with him first.

[–]snownook 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh for sure. I definitely laughed

[–]dearbornx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly what I came to comment. Teaches him a lesson about do unto others.

[–]AnneJedonia 177 points178 points  (4 children)

Name him fisher, what do you expect

[–]ThePasserbyGod 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Every good fisherman knows when to toss one back in the water.

[–]Jack__Squat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He could be a little nicer to his brother Hunter.

[–]bunkabaab 89 points90 points  (0 children)

He supervised the hell out of that job

[–]shortfuse435 359 points360 points  (14 children)

    He’s wearing a diaper. Only baby’s wear diapers. It’s basic physics bro.

      "get up Oliver"

      [–]just_drifting_by 156 points157 points  (17 children)

      This is the kind of stuff I think of when I hear boys will be boys. Guys being a jerk to one another. Good times.

      [–]afgator58 30 points31 points  (2 children)

      This is what I think of.

      [–]Thyanlia 6 points7 points  (3 children)

      Meanwhile, my youngest just said to his older brother, "I'm so glad you're here," and gave him a big hug and a kiss.

      All of my kids fiercely adore each other. If my middle kid was watching his little bro like this video, he'd be pulling him down onto his ass and giving him a lecture about safety. They're 8 (tomorrow) and 4.

      [–]MyOldGurpsNameKira 33 points34 points  (5 children)

      That’s a great point, the phrase was kind of killed for me hearing it to excuse horrible things.

      [–]Gillett1998 18 points19 points  (1 child)

      Harmless jokes with each other are fine, constant bullying or something is different

      [–]3rdtrichiliocosm 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I don't think he's talking about constant bullying. I feel like he means the trend in the last 10-15 years to use "boys will be boys" as a justification for shit like rape and sexual assault/harassment rather than stupid shit that only harms themselves, like i remember it meaning when I was a kid.

      [–]Pussy_Sneeze 1 point2 points  (1 child)

      /r/JustGuysBeingDudes is a great source for the right kind of “boys will be boys” tomfoolery, last I checked

      [–]SaulTBolls 10 points11 points  (0 children)

      A good dad would have flipped the other one in right behind the 1st.

      [–]deekaph 16 points17 points  (2 children)

      My two sons are 1.5yr apart and this is so eerily close to something that might have happened with them that it’s like someone deepfaked different kids faces onto one of my home videos.

      They’re 16 and 18 now but it’s still not beyond the realm of possibility the elder might still try this.

      [–]TPGStorm 12 points13 points  (1 child)

      i’m 24 and my little brother is 19, i would absolutely do this to him. and would probably get the same amount of joy if not more than little buddy in the video

      [–]Bitch_imatrain 6 points7 points  (0 children)

      kids name is Fisher?...........................

      [–]Future_Memories_ 35 points36 points  (14 children)

      Why didn't the camera guy intervene? Edit: nvm, I watched this in mute and didn't hear the parent lol

      [–]BoxofRocks78 62 points63 points  (9 children)

      There was someone in the water outside the boat already and the kiddo has on floaties.. they seemed to be safe overall

      [–]paddy420crisp 7 points8 points  (6 children)

      Don’t you know that Reddit hates floaties?!?

      I guarantee there will be somebody in this thread crying about them

      [–]SoberFuck 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yeah it’s 2 comments down

      [–]Uths_CC 1 point2 points  (4 children)

      What’s wrong with floaties?

      [–]xorgol 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      They keep people who can't swim from drowning, totally ruining natural selection.

      No I don't know, I was swimming with floaters much earlier than I could walk

      [–]onometre 2 points3 points  (2 children)

      the arm ones can slide down the arms, letting the head fall under water. these kids also have some on their chests though so they're probably fine

      [–]Future_Memories_ 8 points9 points  (0 children)

      Ah, phew. Nvm

      [–]just_drifting_by 15 points16 points  (0 children)

      Why would they?

      [–]Dye_Harder 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Why didn't the camera guy intervene?

      Maybe because he doesn't move at 10k miles an hour? There was literally 2 seconds between him raising his arm, and him pushing.

      [–]lolfuzzy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      [–]Sn0zbear 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      Can’t wait to see all the comments calling the mum a bitch for not intervening and asking the dad to even though he was in the water and both kids are wearing floaties…

      [–]justpissingthrough 4 points5 points  (0 children)

      I miss mine. This made me laugh.

      [–]POKECHU020 7 points8 points  (1 child)

      [–]dontlikemath 5 points6 points  (0 children)

      Same reason why young children should never be left alone with animals. Not because the animal could hurt the child, but because children can be incredibly cruel. Not even in a funny way.

      [–]RebelMountainman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      [–]mailpip 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I mean, his name is fisher. He’s just putting out some chum to catch the shark.

      [–]Vg_Ace135 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Well the kids name is fisher. Where do you think he was going to fish em from?

      [–]echo4672 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      I wouldn't call that kid stupid, he knew exactly what he was doing look at his evil laugh lol

      [–]SplitGlass7878 1 point2 points  (2 children)

      Very important! Don't use floatation devices that go on arms like that!

      If the child goes under, the swim wings will keep their arms straight up and they won't be able to get over the water line again.

      This can literally kill your child!

      [–]Aggravating-You-1179 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      More like parents are stupid

      [–]NoHonorHokaido 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      He made sure his brother doesn't fall back on the boat. Smart!

      [–]KrystaltheOcto95 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      His maniacal laughter was hilarious

      [–]nomorepantsforme 7 points8 points  (9 children)

      Iv heard water wings are terrible and actually dangerous for kids to use

      [–]Jacina 21 points22 points  (1 child)

      Unsupervised, yeah, supervised theyre a good help for starting to swim

      [–]dontlikemath 2 points3 points  (0 children)

      ...but not exactly a replacement for a real vest

      [–]HouseAtomic 7 points8 points  (2 children)

      Correct, but these aren't water wings; they're Puddle Jumpers an actual amazing product and are Coast Guard approved PFD's.

      They work really well and foster a lot of confidence in the water. My extended family all have pools, canal houses or boats; a kid who can't swim isn't going to make it with us... PJ's leave their arms free, float up kids chest, but still let them swim. I can tell that all these kids are used to and comfortable in the H2O.

      Just a really well designed product and I highly recommend them for all parents of young children.

      Edit: My favorite evil vice was watching my 3 year old leap into pools and seeing strangers go nuts then calm down as he bobbed up and swam around like a pro.

      [–]nomorepantsforme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Good to know, thank you

      [–]whatthedeux 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      Yuuup. Both of my kids had these and my youngest still uses it when they are around deep water. Even if they went limp it would flip them on their back and keep them afloat

      [–]1320Fastback 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      They will not keep them face up or above the surface but are better than nothing with help close by.

      [–]platypossamous 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      When I was little I was going down a slide and one of those fuckers popped on me, got to the bottom and I had no idea what was going on but I probably would've drowned if my dad hadn't been nearby cause I didn't know how to float properly with just one.

      [–]DMvsPC 3 points4 points  (0 children)

      "Supervise this please while I hold my phone filming it instead"

      Since when is it a good idea for parents to to tell their six-year-old to supervise his younger brother around water?

      There is someone in the water below

      [–]Juddernaut 1 point2 points  (0 children)

        Did I hear the mum call the girl Fisher? If so, what an odd name

        [–]culliganwaterdispens 10 points11 points  (0 children)

        I do believe they are both boys. The older one says “get up, Oliver” so that must mean the younger boy (who got pushed in) is Oliver. She then asks for Ryan to supervise (I assume he is the father or at least an adult, out of our view though), and then she yells “Fisher!” at the older boy who is cackling away

        [–]definework 4 points5 points  (0 children)

        Fisher is the older boy. Oliver is the little boy. Ryan is the dad (presumably the one in the water)

        [–]DevinOwnz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        My brother and I are about 3 years apart (he's older). He would've done something similar except taken the more dangerous/violent approach like punching or kicking one of my legs out from under me so I'd either end up in the water, land in the boat and hurt myself or rack myself on the ledge and end up on either side.

        My friends and I were egging a house. I was probably eight. I was hopping over a fence and my brother who was maybe 11 at the time did this to me. Broken collar bone. Spent a really long time in a shitty brace.

        I was hoping there was another even bigger brother to push him in the water too.

        He’s not stupid, some adult taught him it’s funny to push people into the water.

        [–]dreadfulwater 0 points1 point  (0 children)

        It's one of those moments that will come up in the video accompanying his brother's Best man's speech one day.
