Wow! Talk about family drama... and I thought my brother was annoying. I
guess you were pretty mad at him. I hope that at least people realized that
it was his fault and not yours.

In high school I got them to show me the way ahead of time.  In
college I decided I would be ok just following the person in front of
me.  It was my brother, so thought I was safe.  He started college
before me, transferred in to where I was, and ended up graduating at
the same time.  Anyway, the problem turned out to be that he was
drunk at the ceremony, so he, and I turned the wrong way!
