Meet our 32-year-old protagonist, a man who's firmly decided to live a child-free life. He doesn't hate kids, he just doesn't want to invest his time and energy in raising them. His older sister, however, has three little ones and seems to have a habit of dumping them on anyone she can, including their younger brother. But when our protagonist moves back to town and his sister tries to leave her kids with him, he puts his foot down and refuses to babysit. 🚫👨‍👧‍👦 Now, both his siblings are calling him the bad guy. Let's dive into this family drama and see what unfolds! 😬

Uncle's Babysitting Battle: Who's in the Wrong? 🤔

Our protagonist has made it clear that he's not interested in babysitting his sister's kids, even after moving back to town. He's taken them on outings, but refuses to be a regular babysitter. His sister is furious, and his younger brother is upset that he's not helping to ease his own babysitting burden. 🥺😤 The protagonist argues it's not his responsibility and that his brother needs to set boundaries with their sister. So, who's in the wrong here? Let's see what the internet thinks of this sticky situation... 🍿
