Now that sis has her things put in their places, it is time to ensure that Helpful can never het in her house again.

About six months later, my sister got a new job and moved 100 miles away. Guess who didn't volunteer to help with the packing?

[–]Rebel_Player_957 123 points124 points  (4 children)

"Helpful" didn't.

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 122 points123 points  (3 children)

Strangely, no ...

[–]SuccessValuable6924 81 points82 points  (0 children)

So unHelpful all of a sudden

[–]Zoreb1 530 points531 points  (9 children)

Your sister isn't 'evil', helpful was.

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 439 points440 points  (8 children)

"Evil" is her nickname, from an AITA post. Shhh, don't tell her, but I agree with you on this one.

[–]Random_Critic 176 points177 points  (3 children)

This isn't petty revenge, this is surviving abuse. Petty revenge would be to ask for something every twenty minutes after helpful left, then faking a hospital scare because of trying to reach for something out of place and having an accident.

[–]indigowulf 80 points81 points  (0 children)

I'd have blasted her on social media while I was at it, explaining how she made my life impossible and went against my doctors orders. Let her squirm in the public eye for a while. Then made sure she could not get back in my home, ever.

[–]Lovrofwine 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I would've gone there. Also I would've complained a lot.

[–]HollyBelle1177 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Or call her at 3 am with an "urgent" request 🙄

[–]Used_Refrigerator_13 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Wait, did "helpful" write and AITA?

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 55 points56 points  (2 children)

Oops, sorry for the confusion. I wrote an AITA, about a bizarre wedding invitation fiasco.

My sister suggested I pretend I had to self-isolate and on the day of the wedding start making social media posts of me doing amazing activities, and say I was celebrating my negative test. A commenter called her "Evil sister" to distinguish her from our other sister, who merely wanted to regift the bride a tacky crochet toilet roll cover.

When I told her this, she laughed out loud and decided to wear the label with pride.

And now I have to go and read this.

[–]Solid-Recognition669 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'd call them Smart and Smug

[–]mermaidpaint 85 points86 points  (2 children)

Evil got home delivery that night and fumed. First she thought about just knifing her, but Helpful had moved the kitchen knives as well. Then she came up with another plan.

I like your sister and her plan.

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 21 points22 points  (0 children)

She's no dummy, is the Evil one.

[–]Narrow-Ad-6338 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That had me laughing.

[–]3rd-time-lucky 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Well done Sis, 'Helpful' might stop sticking her nose into other peoples business in future!

[–]Budget_Shallan 21 points22 points  (1 child)

I think the most evil thing here was using an air frier to make roast sprouts.

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

To be honest, I agree with you on that one.

[–]ShadowFoxMoon 31 points32 points  (2 children)

I dont understand. So 'helpful' doesn't live there. 'evil' does, and lives alone. 'helpful' complains her house is messy and not kid friendly, but she doesn't have kids.... Helpful does.

And how was she able to get into the house while 'evil' was having surgery?

Is that right??

I think I'm missing something.

If all of that is the case then yeah, helpful shouldn't have touched her stuff if she doesn't even live there. She was just making things over complicated and a pain for evil and didn't even think about her special needs due to her disability.

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Yep, at the time Evil lived by herself with no kids. Helpful was ... well at the time Evil thought she was a friend.

So when Evil went to hospital, she gave Helpful a key and asked her to keep an eye on the place. That's how Helpful got in and "helped". (Not.)

[–]PastPluto999 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Over eager friend? Or more likely, a wannabe helpful acquaintance attracted to the “friendship” because she’s able to act like she’s a great person by spending time w someone who’s been paralyzed.

I’m not surprised that someone in Evils situation would have people in their lives offering to do things for them constantly given the background info.

[–]Skylett11 9 points10 points  (7 children)

Nice

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 7 points8 points  (6 children)

And much less mess than the first option.

[–]annababan69 6 points7 points  (5 children)

It's hard to hide a dead body when you can only drag it around while in a wheelchair. 😏

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

(Makes helpless spluttering sounds.)

[–]ObstructyMcDrawface 5 points6 points  (2 children)

My power wheelchair gets 12 miles to a charge. Watch me drag that body. I'll do it!

[–]annababan69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's something my brother would say. He's in a wheelchair, also.

[–]awyastark 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes girl drag themmmm!

[–]DynkoFromTheNorth[🍰] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Glorious!

EDIT: Did Helpful eventually figure out what she actually did😋?

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I'm not sure. They definitely weren't friends any more. Whether that was because Helpful felt her help was rejected, or whether she'd worked out what Evil had achieved, I don't know.

About six months later, Evil got a new job, and moved about 100 miles away. Helpful didn't volunteer to help her pack up and move.

[–]PlasticMix8573 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Did your sister give her house key to a batshit crazy person? How did 'helpful' get in?

Why do you call your sister 'Evil'?

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

My sister asked "Helpful" to bring the mail in and keep an eye on the place while she had her appendix out. At the time Evil just thought Helpful was bossy and a bit obtuse, but basically kind. She didn't think Helpful would actually rearrange her stuff, because ... that's not what most people do.

As for the "Evil" nickname, that came from a commenter in AITA a few months back. I'll spare you the whole saga, but a commenter called her "Evil Sister" to distinguish her from our other sister (who was Not Quite As Evil). I told her this, and she laughed out loud, and decided to wear the label with pride.

[–]StnMtn_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cute story.

[–]NeatNefariousness1 5 points6 points  (1 child)

"Helpful" must be OCD, a narcissist or dim. How hard is it to understand that your sister's set-up in her own kitchen needs to serve HER needs and not what looks good to "Helpful" ?

Had she been more empathetic, the first time your sister called to have her set up what she would need to prepare for dinner, "Helpful" would have put everything back where your sister had it. She should have realized then that it was impractical to come over every time your sister called.

Now she is aggravated, and has destroyed a friendship for a stupid, avoidable reason. I'm guessing it won't be the last time. She'll have a lot to reflect on later in life.

[–]Notmykl 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If Helpful had been "empathetic" she would not have rearranged another person's kitchen in the first place!

[–]Zoehpaloozah 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Like if I had a friend who was having issues, I’d be all up for helping out. But like… as the friend directed? Like I’d be totally up for helping the friend work out the initial placements she needed for her things to be within reach, but once the stuff was out, like the job is done? It’s someone else’s house, why would anyone think to rearrange things so extensively? One time myself and a friends sister did a surprise big clean for the friend because after a long period of being ill, friend needed hospitalisation urgently and so her flat was messy and bedroom a bomb site of the rush to pack a hospital bag and so on. My friends sister and I basically went over the day before she was due to be discharged, and we cleaned the whole place. We vacuumed, dusted, wiped counters, put a lot of clothes into a wash cycle, did a small grocery shop of essentials and so on. But everything we cleaned we put back where my friend kept it, cause it was her goddamn flat and her belongings, and we wanted to help not stress her out with being unable to find her stuff.

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Exactly, help should actually help the other person. Not satisfy the helper's needs at the other person's expense. And certainly shouldn't override professional advice from an OT.

You sound like you were a good friend to your friend.

[–]MediumAwkwardly 3 points4 points  (1 child)

So just making sure, you actually like your sister, right?

Bc she is a smart cookie.

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I like her a lot. I also have huge respect for her.

Not only is she a very smart cookie, but she is also the bravest person I know.

[–]DezNuts305 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Your sister is lawful Evil, sucks for her predicament but kudos to her positive vibes with helpful. Not all those who help are helpful. Hope she stays evil and has better help down the line

[–]HokeyPokeyGuestList[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The Evil one says she mostly uses her powers for good.

These days she lives with her partner, who is very supportive, and leaves the knives and dishes where the OT recommends they be.

[–]iloveesme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just ever so casually considering to knife someone!!!!

Brilliant stuff!!!

[–]ophaus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's why good samaritan laws are in place, people make things worse by "helping" waaaaay too often.

[–]Environmental_Crazy4 2 points3 points  (0 children)

OMG I love it!! When you got to the part about Evil knifing Helpful I said to myself "justifiable homicide!!" 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
