Allowance Drama: Is Dad Playing Favorites? 🎭💰

This dad thought he was being fair by giving Twin A a little extra cash for his emotional labor and leadership skills. But when Twin B discovered the secret allowance boost, he was furious, accusing his parents of unfair treatment. Now, the parents are struggling to explain their decision and justify the extra money for Twin A. Is this a case of playing favorites, or are they simply recognizing the less obvious contributions of one twin? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🕵️‍♀️📢
