When a woman and her husband bought her grandparents' house, they inherited a playground built by her grandfather. Parents from the neighborhood started using the playground, but things went awry when a child climbed onto the roof and fell. The woman put up a fence to protect herself from lawsuits, but when asked by her parents why she did it, she revealed the true reason and named the mother of the child who fell. Now the neighborhood is divided, and the woman wonders if she was too harsh. Was she the a**hole for telling the truth?

A woman and her husband recently bought her grandparent's house, which had a playground built by her grandfather in the adjacent lot. The previous owners had let neighborhood kids play there, but after the new owners moved in, a child fell and the mother threatened to sue. The new owners put up a fence to protect themselves from potential lawsuits and informed the other parents of the incident. As a result, the mother who threatened to sue has been shunned by the other parents, and the new owners are wondering if they should have just put up the fence without telling anyone about the incident. Do you think they were in the wrong for putting up the fence and telling the other parents the reason why? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
