A 35-year-old man is caught in a family conflict after refusing to babysit his sister's 10-year-old twins. With a career and a busy life, he's grown tired of watching the energetic boys who seem to have no interests other than jumping around and watching TikTok videos. Despite his concerns about their behavior and recommendations for them to see a specialist, his sister hasn't taken any action. When he finally put his foot down, it led to a heated argument and a strained relationship.
