Diply | Diply

Family gatherings can be a battleground, especially when it comes to achievements and titles. Our story today revolves around two half-sisters, Sharon (25) and our protagonist (31), who have never been super close. Sharon recently got into med school, and a party was thrown to celebrate her achievement. However, things took a dramatic turn when our protagonist, who holds a doctorate, found her place card at the party addressed as 'Miss' instead of 'Dr.' Let's dive into the drama that unfolded. 😬🍿

Sisterly Spat: Who's the Real Doctor? 🚑🎓

Our protagonist tried to correct a simple mistake on her place card, only to be met with hostility from her med school sister, Sharon. Despite her doctorate, Sharon claimed her sister wasn't a 'real doctor' and accused her of undermining her achievements. In a heated moment, our protagonist shot back, questioning Sharon's ability to make it through med school. Now, she's left wondering if she went too far in defending herself. Let's see what the internet has to say about this family feud... 🧐💬
