Ice Cream Cone Catastrophe 🍦😱

Our cherry-craving protagonist goes on a quick store run with her son, who asks for an ice cream cone. When they return to the family gathering, they're met with a surprise: her brother's family had arrived, and her niece wants ice cream too. Cue the tears and tantrums! 😭 Her brother and sister-in-law blame her for not buying ice cream for all the kids, even though she didn't know they had arrived. They call her selfish and treat her like an evil witch 🧙‍♀️. The family gathering ends on a sour note, with her brother's family leaving in a huff. But is our ice cream-buying mom really in the wrong? Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🤔

Niece asked her mom for ice cream, not OP. NTA 👍
