Entitled Uncle's INSANE Vacation Demands Has Niece Saying 'NO WAY!' 😠

Imagine being invited to spend an entire month of your summer vacation at a secluded cottage with your family. Sounds lovely, right? 🏡 Well, not in this case. Our protagonist, a 21-year-old female, was invited by her uncle to join him, his wife (who she describes as a 'nut job'), and their two children at a cottage in the Welsh countryside. The catch? The cottage has one bedroom for seven people, no working toilet, and an outhouse with a bucket as the only bathroom facility. 😱 Her family's reaction to the invitation was nothing short of hysterical, but when she tried to politely decline the offer, things took a dramatic turn. 😬

A Bucket-List Summer Vacation? 🚽

Our protagonist was put in charge of responding to the invitation, and she did her best to politely decline, mentioning that the cottage getaway sounded horrendous. Instead, she offered to visit her uncle's family before university starts up again. 📚 Her uncle, however, didn't appreciate her 'passive-aggressive' tone and accused her of not making an effort to see the children. 😤 She defended herself, pointing out that she always travels to see them, while they haven't visited her family in 9 years. An argument ensued, and to her surprise, her mum sided with her uncle, calling her rude and disrespectful. 🤯 Even after her mum apologized, her uncle refused to accept it. 🙅‍♂️ So, who's in the wrong here? Let's dive into the internet's thoughts on this dramatic family situation... 💭
