The Sleep Saga: Who Wears the Crown of Tiredness? 😴👑

In the left corner, we have the Sleep-Deprived Worker, battling long hours and the threat of unemployment. In the right corner, the Parental Patrol, armed with sleepless nights and toddler tantrums. 🥊 The ring? A casual hangout turned battleground over who gets to claim the title of 'Most Exhausted.' The Worker's plea for understanding was met with patronizing laughter and a lesson on 'real' tiredness. But when she clapped back, the room split faster than a banana at a sundae bar. 🍌💔 The aftermath? A flurry of texts, a divided friend group, and a whole lot of folks needing a nap. Now, let's see what the court of public opinion has to say about this snooze fest...

Exhaustion isn't a competition! Parents and childless both feel it 😓
