A Thorny Dilemma: Is Our Green-Thumbed Hero in the Wrong? 🌹

Our anonymous gardener found themselves in a sticky situation when their sister, drawn by the allure of their beautiful garden, demanded similar services. Despite offering to help plan and shop for the garden, our gardener stood firm on not maintaining it. The sister's plea, 'But, I'm family. You need to help. I'm your sister.' fell on deaf ears. Even the prospect of payment couldn't sway our determined gardener. Now, the question remains: Is our gardener in the wrong for refusing to maintain their sister's garden? Let's see what the internet has to say... 🕵️‍♀️🌐
