Laptop Woes: Uncle Puts His Foot Down 👣🚫

In a whirlwind of emotions, our frustrated uncle finds his cherished laptop shattered after letting his niece borrow it. The parents refuse to pay for the damages, claiming their 7-year-old 'doesn't know better.' 😡 The uncle, who has been babysitting for free, decides enough is enough and refuses to babysit until the niece is older or her parents pay for a new laptop. Eventually, the niece's parents reluctantly agree to pay whatever Apple Care doesn't cover, but they're still fuming. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿
