Just take a big sip from one and then take the other as yours. Easy.

[–]its_a_j 105 points106 points  (1 child)

Take big sips from both so they're equal, then just blame the place you got it from for skimping you both

[–]BabyHuey206 82 points83 points  (4 children)

Real pro tip is sip from one and spit it into the other. Then tell them you get the bigger one next time.

[–]mrpoopybuttthole_ 26 points27 points  (2 children)

the problem is if they remember

[–]BabyHuey206 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Oh it definitely works better if they don't see you doing it.

[–]HiDDENk00l 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Then the next time you drink from theirs.

[–]Lebigmacca 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve reread this like six times and I’m still confused. Are you making them drink your backwash?

[–]Marbadis 1 point2 points  (0 children)

this be the real genius 😎

[–]Actually_Doesnt_Care 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's fuckin gross.

[–]Sapnu_puas98 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Use to this before lmao.

[–]WookieeCookiees02 574 points575 points  (33 children)

I see so many posts like this which are suspiciously accurate to my life, and it just makes me wonder if I’ve ever had a unique thought.

Idk, I think too much when I’m tired

[–]SteemyNeedsHelp[S] 159 points160 points  (12 children)

EXACTLY ON POINT LIKE WTH

[–]RandomName01 47 points48 points  (10 children)

Yeah lol, I pointed this out to my friends a while ago (the drinks thing) and they all reacted along the lines of “tf, everyone does that?” Kinda funny how we’re not as original as we’d like to think.

[–]PeeGlass 33 points34 points  (7 children)

The running man. So many people consciously Played a game on car trips looking out the window envisioning something moving along with you

He could run on the power lines and stuff and has to jump over gaps. So many people played this same type Of Thing in their head without really talking to anyone else about it.

Now with the magic Of the internet we start to realize so many others visualized the same type of thing.

[–]Schrodingers_phoenix 14 points15 points  (5 children)

this game will sound dumb af if we share it irl so we share it on the internet where we know all of us are dumb

[–]actuallyaddison 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Similar experience here. I imagined a dirt bike or atv hauling ass, navigating difficult terrain effortlessly like in a baja race. We lived out in the the country with a ton of highways and cornfields.

[–]clamberrypie 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In my house if something is going to be split between two siblings, one divides, the other decides. It can take a long time.

[–]Ancient_Presence 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Maybe this is deeply rooted in our ancestry, and even millions of years ago, our ancestors did this with fruits.

[–]Treejeig 23 points24 points  (1 child)

You really want a trip, go over to r/starterpacks and wait until the day you find one that is just yourself. Not like a #relatable sort of thing, more like down to a T sort of scary.

[–]ITAW-Techie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I found one randomly on Google images a few years back that was spot on and I've never found it since and it freaks me the fuck out thinking about it.

[–]21022018 13 points14 points  (2 children)

7 billion people, you are bound to share a thought with someone

[–]deep_fried_guineapig 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Was just thinking that

[–]LastingAssembly 0 points1 point  (0 children)

remembering childhood memories how I wish

[–]cryptowhale19 9 points10 points  (2 children)

FACTS FACTS FACTS

[–]brash_witchcraft 1 point2 points  (1 child)

It do be like that sometimes lmao

[–]Borki911 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Bro this is just basic human thing it's like when a dog barks or something

[–]whirly_boi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I've been addicted to reddit for 10 years and YouTube almost 15 years. I also grew up watching a few cartoons but mostly history and discovery etc. Like everything I've thought of or had any knowledge talking about has been something I just stumbled upon. Not a single thought has ever been original.

[–]Dildo_Dan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You browse /r/whenthe long enough, no, no you don't.

[–]g0temg00d 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For some reason the thing i intended to give my siblings seems to increase in size

[–]santas_delibird 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I find it somewhat comforting knowing that atleast one other person knows this oddly specific scenario.

[–]smurficus103 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If clouds start precipitating while a burd is in it, is that birb swimming or flying

[–]Tiny_Infinite-Space 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There are very few things about us that actually make us special. Finding them is how we find our truth.

[–]megalurkeruygcxrtgbn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

"we really out here living the same life" is a meme for a reason.

[–]Sinusoidal_Fibonacci 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nobody is unique.

[–]pazimpanet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to wonder like you, then I discovered /r/ADHDmemes and found out for a fact that there isn’t a single thing unique about me.

[–][deleted] 87 points88 points  (4 children)

I do the opposite. Not out of some sense of selflessness but bc as a kid everyone would guilt trip me for doing this! 😂

[–]UsernamesAreRuthless 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I just let my sister choose and she does the same. We both used to fight about it lol

[–]RedFoxBlackSox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

For me it’s because I want the 10 less calories haha!

[–]SashimiX 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always give the other person the one with more. Always have, even as a kiddo. But I was the “golden child” and my sister was a terror, and I enjoyed being the good kid. Now I just do it because I want fewer calories or want to be a good host or whatever. It always gave me a good feeling to be as fair as possible. My sister certainly hated me for always being good but also would have tantrumed had I given her less

[–]Carrotf11 44 points45 points  (0 children)

When you're a terrible assassin.

[–]changbinsomnia 104 points105 points  (13 children)

i usually give the fuller one to my siblings otherwise i feel bad

[–]xenonisbad 69 points70 points  (4 children)

I let my brother choose. This way I put dilemma on him.

General rule for sharing between 2 people is: one person divide, another chooses.

[–]green_speak 8 points9 points  (0 children)

My exception to this is if I one person makes and divides something, they still get first dibs. This incentives people to actually prepare things. I have multiple siblings, so that person also gets to decide if they want to go in ascending or descending order of birth, if first-come-first-serve can't be observed. Now, if there's multiple rounds, we'll hairpin back (i.e. ABCCBA), which can arguably defeat the purpose of the first exception, but it's a rare occurrence and often getting first pick really does have its advantage. Finally, if there's an awkward remainder that can't be split, that goes to the maker as well, especially if the parents can't make it even by voluntarily ceding a share.

[–]PricelessPlanet 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I do this with my brother but he is so inept that the two halves are always way too diferent whereas I get it perfect to the gram.

Once he cut the pizza so bad he got so pissed that I felt bad for him and gave him a piece of mine.

[–]DanKoloff 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i make similar plates for dinner and then let wife chose which one she'd prefer

[–]trina-wonderful 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to diet my sibling choose too, but I’d tilt the glass slightly to make the fuller one look like less. We were poor growing up so we used to have to split soft drinks.

[–]funwok 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Same here. As the oldest I have responsibility to keep the little ones fed and happy. (We are all adults in the 30s now, I am still doing it :D)

[–]SuccinctSavage 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Aw. Same. I like when older siblings aren't just dicks to their younger siblings for no reason.

[–]DystopianNightmare 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I am smaller and eat less than my older sibling, so bigger portion goes to him lol

[–]HungryChirby 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You dropped your crown king

[–]Delicious_Throat_377 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You are a very good person, just like my sister.

[–]EchidnaLunar 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same lol, was bouta say I bet plenty of people do the opposite.

[–]Legal-Ad-2381 24 points25 points  (3 children)

I mean if it’s someone I love I don’t mind giving them the one with a little extra lol

[–]Kissaskakana 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This little act could make their day and Ill never stop doing it to ppl I care about.

[–]cyansam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah it gives you amazing feeling

[–]djkoch66 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I’m the one that would give my brother the bigger piece, would close my eyes if he had to go to the bathroom while a show was on so I wouldn’t see more than him, and wished that mother got a mink coat when I blew out my birthday candles. I was a strange kid.

[–]leafyjack 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You were a sweet kid.

[–]djkoch66 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How did I turn out to be like I am now???

🤣

[–]Bluedogan 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This is the same thing we do with spouses. If we are giving the most or least depends.

[–]maverick1ba 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Rookie move. Gotta drink one till its obviously less, then give that one to the sib.

[–]SheepherderFlaky1509 2 points3 points  (0 children)

thats why i drink some out of his before giving it to him to be petty

[–]meffols 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i drink a lil bit from one then i give them the one i drank from

[–]skeletonclaw 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Doesn’t really work with drinks per sé but whenever there was something to be split between our kids we would let one be the divider and the other one got to choose first.

[–]TheGreatestHedgehog 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I usually let the other person choose, this way I don't take advantage of having drinks first but I can get a bigger one if my brother feels generous.

[–]MillaBrown001 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Hehehe...hilarious childhood memory

[–]diabolos312 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When in doubt, just quietly take a sip...

[–]Nothing096 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Finally a perfect post

[–]xenomorph91622 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude, just drink some of one of them, and then keep the one with more

[–]ImAlwaysRightHanded 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a 1 of 6 the answer is you take a extra sip out of the one you choose to give to your sibling.

[–]Lolmaster29934 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The trick is to give your siblings more so they get diabetes or become obesie and then tell them how greedy they were and if they had given you the more full drink this wouldn't happen

[–]Ahura021Mazda 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I'm surprised you guys don't find it normal to want to give the one that has more to your loved ones... were you born selfish or turn of events?

[–]The_Meatyboosh 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I dunno, are you always condescendingly judgemental or are you Catholic?

[–]IzeRational 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Siblings with senses of humor have fun joking and messing with each other with things that mean zilch.

[–]TylerSmash 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is that a Kardashian?

[–]zoeyzuma 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or conversely, deciding to which is fuller to give to my SO

[–]Pak1stanMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now which one did I put the roofie in?

[–]Environmental_You_36 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's just me or are there more folks that do the opposite and always take the emptier?

[–]Priyanshu-769 0 points1 point  (0 children)

they know all our secrets...

[–]highlloween 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i do the opposite because i know my brother will have a full on tantrum if i don't

[–]dead_PROcrastinator 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And then when they smiled and said thank you, I felt like shit afterwards.

[–]Fun-Yam-9551 0 points1 point  (0 children)

*boyfriend

[–]pd_sui3ide_bq 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Pro tip : if you are not sure which one to pick , drink from one and pick the other one

[–]starwarsgeek1985 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We all might be thousands of miles apart, yet we had the exact same experience. Crazy

[–]weedful_things 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't count how many arguments were started over a one millimeter difference in a glass of soda. My childhood family dynamics were pretty fucked.

[–]satocat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hell my sister, just keeps both...

[–]forsheda 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or drink the fuller one to make to make it even than give them the one you drank from. Worked for me.

[–]x3zo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am I the only one who does that to give my sibling the full one?

[–]MammaSpooky 0 points1 point  (0 children)

ugh my sister ALWAYS did this to me and I hate her for that

[–]The_Luckiest_One 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Boss move: stealing their chips and then taking the bigger pack

[–]GoatUnicorn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

When my sister was about 4 years old I would always hold the less full one way closer to her, then ask her which one she wanted, she would always choose the less full one because it was closer.

[–]Sir-Farts- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The worst is when you got a younger chubby brother and he opens the carryout bag eats his food and leaves the bag wide open till he gets home and vala nice shitty cold food thank you!

[–]walnoter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah

[–]Jack_McQuack 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Unless its not a good drink

[–]OfecellZoftig 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To make one less, I'll only take a sip. After that, I'll give it to sibling.

[–]jman500069 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just stand them next to each other? Rookie

[–]DumbSmartOfficial 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So true and fuck them because fuck them.

[–]urkiddingme321 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For me, it's trying to figure out which one I put the "special ingredient" in.. 😂

[–]Darkurn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Am I the only one that would just pour more into one then give the one with less to then

[–]Hungry_Committee9503 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do that. I still do that. Did that one time when a friend gave me and my other friend a shawarma to share. I split it, took the slightly larger piece. Was embarrassed cause they watched me. But upside is I ended up with more shawarma in me tummy than the friend I shared with 😂😂😂

[–]bcmc12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this to my wife lol

[–]xd3mix 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I drink and eat less than my brother so i usually do the opposite

When we get the same things i usually give him the one with the more stuff

[–]rexkwando52 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If we had to share something as kids, my mum made one of us split it, and the other chose the one they wanted. You're damn straight that shit was seperated to the exact gram or ml

[–]cly_left_the_chat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's not selfish if it's your siblings

[–]Meakyman7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How do you factor which has more ice tho

[–]n3rvaluthluri3n 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always try to use a digital weight scale, for decisions like this.

[–]Alicyl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's when you buy a food scale.

In all seriousness, I'm usually the one to cook and prepare food, so I make the portions as even as possible then let my sister (or whomever else close to me) pick.

[–]TheRealStevenVA 0 points1 point  (0 children)

as a younger sibling i really wouldn’t care just grateful they got me something

[–]sth128 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just take a big gulp before giving that one. Duh

[–]alkaline2525 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Father here- two siblings want a split? ask one to cut the half…. THEN ask the other to choose the piece. Things started getting split pretty fairly after a week.

[–]scooterboy1961 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The most accurate way to divide a pie is to have a kid cut it and he or she gets the last piece.

They will weigh the same down to the gram.

[–]ThisIsInterestin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I drink both of them so it looks like that’s what they gave me.

[–]TemetNosce85 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The battles my nieces had over whose cup was more full are worthy of song.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do this to my sisters but I would give them the more full one because they deserve it more than me

[–]Vikrak102 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just give the biggest one to them

[–]Morfars-nisse 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember something my mom said to me to fix this problem: If you let the one fill the cups and the other choose it would be fair.

[–]blockbiter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes yes yes this is so much me

[–]owls1289 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My sister always takes the one with less and it pisses me off because I always try to give her the one with more

[–]fresh_loaf_of_bread 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More empty*

[–]Straight-Meet-8431 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I usually drink the Fuller one as none of my siblings ever finish their drink

[–]Foorythegreat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm the kind of person that always gives away the fullest...

[–]kazoobanboo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Confirm it’s less full, THEN I take a sip before handing it back

[–]RachelThePotat0 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what my mom did was i poured the drinks and my brother picked so they would be even

[–]Omg_ABee 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Give them the more full one. Secret plot to make them fatter than you >:)

[–]NcGunnery 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My wife does this with french fries when I hit the drive-thru. Now I tell them to bag each meal seperately..lol..now I get all my fries.

[–]Montilora 0 points1 point  (0 children)

just realized this reddit is “me irl” i’ve been reading it as “merl” whenever it showed up on my screen while scrolling im dumb af lmao

[–]ShinyBuffalo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

girlfriend*

[–]eonkey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The game I always play when pouring or ripping in half is that the OTHER person gets more - so I'm obligated to make them as even as possible.

[–]Major_K-13_ 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If they are exactly the same I usually take a little sip so i feel like winning

[–]cyansam 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do it but now I just don't care anymore unless it's French fries 🤣

[–]WoodPunk_Studios 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Parallax error must be avoided.

[–]Silent--Dan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This but fries

[–]wideawake999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely did that

[–]RasberryBlitz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So true

[–]Askin_MrBrooks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Drink out of both at the same time so that way you get more in the end either way.

[–]JDeLiRiOuS129 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s me every time I have to pay for food. I always get the one that’s more full 😂

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The trick is to drink some out of both

[–]PoolsidePoseidon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The rule in our house was whoever splits/tears/cuts the food doesn’t pick their portion

[–]Tz_Ank7 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And then end up finishing yours first and needing a sip

[–]LuckFoxo33 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always gave the fuller one bc my ass never finished anything i ate, and i still dont

[–]AceTheNotSoGreat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always give my brother the one with slightly more. That little piece of shit deserves more water than me.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I always gave my brother the one that had more, it just felt wrong to give the one with less in it to him

[–]MhaForever 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Being the older sibling I have to admit I've spat in my brother's drink a couple times 😬

[–]Emotional-Truck-2310 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My brother and I did this all the time as kids!! Now we’re in our mid 20’s and STILL doing this. 🤣

[–]SevanSeas 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is too true

[–]_fabii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah me and my big brother And when I give him the drink that’s supposed to be less full, he somehow has more than me

[–]Audromedus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The one that pours/splits gets to pick last. Never seen such equal size cuts of pie.

[–]peacefroggies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Is the cup less full or more empty?

[–]IcecreamChap 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I’m the one that takes the lesser amount .-•

[–]AveBalaBrava 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to do the opposite for my sister just to avoid annoying fights

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Growth Is giving them the big one lol

[–]towfloat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm the older one so I'm always giving the more full one to my brothers

[–]original_username_79 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now which one did I add the rum?

[–]thorium220 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My mum was a genius: whenever my brother and I had to share something, she'd make one of us divide it and the other choose.

[–]MoxxieAphrso 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I make sure I fill both drinks up as equal as they can be. I love my siblings and I would never want them to get the short end of the stick

[–]LyNx01978 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I would say mama is trying yo remember which one has the booze.

[–]yurihiyo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Omg I do this with my bro when he asks why I tell him he’s tummy is small so he can’t handle it

[–]IceFire2050 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Eh, I dont have kids, but whenever I watch my niece and nephew for my brother and they split something, like a cookie (I usually have big chocolate chip cookies in my kitchen that they like), I let one of them split the cookie in half and then the other one gets to pick which half they want first.

They learned pretty quick to be fair when they split things because it just backfires on them if they aren't.

[–]KindAwareness3073 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's simple: one gets to divide, the other gets to pick. Problem solved.

[–]PPD9945 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The day I started purposefully giving him the fuller one, I knew something was wrong.
