👶🚪👋💰 AITA for dropping off my sister's kids at daycare?

Babysitting can be a tough job, especially if it's unexpected. A 19-year-old girl was asked to babysit her sister's kids but had to refuse due to an exam. However, her sister left the kids with her anyways and drove off. Not knowing what to do, the girl dropped the kids off at daycare and informed her sister about it. Her sister was furious and accused her of being irresponsible. The girl is now wondering if she was in the wrong for leaving the kids at daycare. However, she did inform her sister about the situation and provided her with the daycare's address and phone number. Was it her responsibility to babysit regardless of her prior commitments? Or was she justified in dropping off the kids at daycare? Read on to find out what Reddit has to say about this dilemma.
