Despite her modest income and responsibilities, she finds herself constantly pestered for groceries. From a Thanksgiving SOS to an 80-item list, the demands keep escalating. But when she finally draws the line, she's accused of being an a**hole. With her past experiences of food insecurity, this is more than just a neighborly dispute. It's a battle of boundaries, beans, and basic respect. Now, let's see what the internet thinks of this sticky situation... 🍿
