Uncle's attempt at babysitting backfires causing family feud 👻

Babysitting can be a daunting task, especially when you're not used to it. One uncle found this out the hard way when his sister dropped off his crying nephew and disappeared for hours. Despite trying to calm the baby down, nothing seemed to work, and the uncle became increasingly frustrated. When the baby had a dirty diaper and the uncle couldn't reach his sister, he made the decision to take the baby back to his sister's house. Little did he know, this would cause a massive family feud between his sister and her husband. The uncle is now questioning whether he made the right decision or if he should have waited for his sister to return. Was he in the wrong for taking matters into his own hands or was he simply trying to do what was best for the baby? Read on to find out how this situation escalated and what others have to say about it in the comments.
