Family Vacation or Doggy Dilemma? 🏖️🐶
A family vacation to a Florida beach house is on the verge of falling apart due to a disagreement between two brothers. The older brother, his wife, and their 18-month-old child are considering skipping the trip because the younger brother insists on bringing his terrier along. The protagonist is not a dog person and doesn't want to travel with the dog, stay in the same house, or have the dog around his son. The younger brother refuses to budge, claiming his dog is part of the family and even suggesting the baby would be more annoying than the dog. With the deadline for a full refund fast approaching, let's see what the internet thinks about this tense situation... 😬👀
"YTA It's a small dog and you said it was well behaved. It's fair to ask the dog is kept away from the baby. A baby is a far more inconvenience than a dog. You can leave a dog home alone for a few hours if people want to eat at a nice restaurant. It's rude to bring a baby to a nice restaurant, they have bed times and they scream at movies. Kids are awesome- but you're on a different planet if you think the vacation is going to revolve around the dog- it's going to revolve around your baby." - Engaging debate on dogs vs. babies 🐶😱
"YTA - Family isn't defined solely by squirting out an infant." 😱

"YTA. A small dog that behaves 'fine' is easier to deal with than an 18 month old. Don't expect all adults to put up with child-friendly activities. Trip won't fall apart because your entitled ass pulls out."
YTA for nitpicking about a well-behaved dog. Family matters more.
