Should sister still have an allowance???

I was recently at lunch with my mom, I paid the bill and I asked my mom if she could cover the tip. She told me she could'nt because she had to give my sister her allowance for the last 2 weeks....I"m floored, My sister is 26 still lives at home with my mom, dad, and 28 year old brother. Has not had a job in 3 years, does not pay rent or any bills, neither does my brother, but I am just 2 years older than her. I recently told her that she should try to find a job, even if it was part time, and she flipped on me saying that I just think I'm better than her. I moved out when I was 20 and I have worked hard to get where I am... Is this crazy??? and by the way they also pay for her clothes and personal items as well!!!

    Allowances should be stopped at 18 for everyone. They need to go out and get a job on their own and show mom and dad they are responsible.
