Picture this: your entire family is planning a fabulous cruise to celebrate your aunt's retirement, but they 'forget' to invite you. 😲 Instead, they assume you'll be the designated babysitter for all the little ones while they're off having the time of their lives. 🍹🌴 How would you feel? Betrayed? Frustrated? Well, that's precisely what happened to our protagonist here. But instead of playing along with their plans, they decided to take matters into their own hands. 😏 Buckle up, folks, because this story is filled with drama, conflict, and a healthy dose of family pettiness! 🍿

🤯 Family Assumes Babysitting Duties, Gets a Surprise!

Our protagonist discovers their family's secret cruise plans for their aunt's retirement just a week before the trip. 🚢 They were never invited, and everyone assumed they'd be staying home to babysit the kids. 🍼 Feeling left out and used, they decide to take their own vacation with their boyfriend and adult son, without telling anyone. 🏖️ As their family members show up to drop off their kids, our protagonist is long gone, ignoring calls and messages. 😎 Upon returning, the family is furious, but our protagonist stands their ground, reminding them that no one ever discussed babysitting plans with them. 🙅‍♀️ The cousin accuses them of being selfish and childish, even threatening to report them for child abandonment! 😡 But our protagonist refuses to back down, asking if they were really in the wrong for not wanting to be an unpaid, unappreciated babysitter. 🤔 Let's see what the internet thinks of this wild family drama! 💬
