To Keep or Not to Keep the Pot? 🤔

So, our protagonist saves a pricey pot from the trash, cleans it up, and now her SIL wants it back. But is she obligated to return it? 🤷‍♀️ SIL initially agreed to let her have it, but now she's fuming and calling her an a**hole. The pot wasn't even SIL's purchase - it was a gift from a former flame. Our pot-rescuing heroine intended to use it as a plant holder, but SIL is annoyed by that too. 😒 With emotions boiling over, let's see what the internet has to say about this heated situation... 🔥
