The Uninvited: A Vacation Home Standoff 🚫🏠

So, our protagonist finds herself in a sticky situation. She's planned a lovely family vacation, but her difficult SIL and her even more challenging daughter, Emma, want to join. Emma's been pulled from school due to her bullying behavior, and her mom thinks a vacation would be the perfect mental health break. 🤯😒 Our protagonist, however, doesn't want her vacation ruined by their presence and stands her ground. Now, her SIL is fuming, and the family is divided. What do you think? Was she right to say no? Let's see what the internet has to say about this situation... 🍿📣

NTA. Commenters agree that SIL should take responsibility for her child's behavior.
