Growing up with siblings is hard because there were so many things that made our blood boil.

No way, Jose were we about to throw the towel in.

Here are 15 things every sibling growing up in the '90s fought over. And I mean EVERY sibling, whether you were the oldest, youngest, or middle child.

1. Hogging the TV.

I had to pry the controller out of my sibling's hand or stand in front of our small TV to get their attention. The amount of buttons my television controller lost per month is too embarrassing to reveal.

2. Who was Player 1 and who had the better controller.  

We all know that Player 1 is the best. They get to choose the character they want to be and what area the game would be played in. It sucked for Player 2 who would have second pick in everything.

3. Playing music too loud (even if you liked the song).

I simply did not want to heart it. Just be silent in your room, others live here too!

4. What "toy or color" you would be in the board game you were playing.

Monopoly and Snakes and Ladders were such a pain to play. It took so long until everyone was happy with the color or piece they chose. Once your sibling started winning, now that's a whole different story.

5. Your sibling eating the last piece of food you were saving for yourself.

The one thing that made me scream at the top of my lungs was seeing an empty packet of my favorite candy or chocolate. I know my name wasn't on it, but it should be common knowledge that the most important person in the household should get the last candy or chocolate. Am I right?

6. Who got to play with the Gameboy first on a trip.

We all want our vacation to start off with a bang. If it starts out boring, it's going to dampen the mood. In hindsight, fighting to play with the Gameboy was a bad start.

7. Borrowing or using anything that belongs to you without asking.

Finders keepers was so subjective.

These next ones will hit close to home...

The Original Barbie Dream House Is Back And Our Inner Child Is Screaming With Joy

A lot of us grew up playing with our barbies. They were a way to explore the realms of our imagination and no matter what you think about Barbie's visual aesthetic, you've got to admit that being able to be creative with her story was pretty great for kids. Sure, her look has raised a lot of controversy, but the fact remains that a lot of us enjoyed playing with Barbies and had countless stories to go along with each one. I remember when I was a kid, one Christmas my parents brought my sister and I into the basement


They Told Us They Could Erase Pen, But It Turns Out Blue Erasers Have An Entirely Different Purpose

Going to class and using pen was a pretty confident move. What, you don't think you're going to make a mistake? I spell my own name wrong on a regular basis, how can you be so sure of yourself? Well, then came those blue erasers. The so-called pen erasers would help even those who are overconfident in their spelling abilities. In theory, they were supposed to remove the pen from your paper, or at least that's what we all thought. Instead, we would be left with torn paper and illegible notes. I was always terrified of writing in pen, so


The Backstreet Boys Are Trying Out The Food Industry Because They Really Do Want It That Way

The Backstreet Boys have been a surprisingly consistent presence in our lives since the 90s. While a lot of the other boy bands faded out over the last couple of decades, The Backstreet Boys aren't afraid to keep going and bring us those pop jams we've loved for so long. I honestly can't imagine my childhood without them. Well, to be completely honest three of their CDs are actually in my car right now. I can't help it, their music is perfect for road trips! Well now, our favorite pop group is not only filling our hearts, they are filling


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a
