Picture this: Your niece, who used to babysit your child when she was younger, offers to take your kid for a weekend to help you out. You're grateful and think it's a sweet gesture. But when she returns your child, she hands you a bunch of receipts and an invoice for her babysitting services! 😳 Would you pay up or stand your ground? One woman faced this exact dilemma, and now she's questioning if she did the right thing. 💭
