Internship Drama: A Family Feud 😤

Our protagonist has been a dutiful older sibling, taking care of their much younger sister for years. When COVID-19 changed everything, they even adjusted their work schedule to accommodate their family's needs. But now, as they enter their senior year of college, they've found an internship that requires them to be away from home for a few hours each week. Mom's not happy about it, and she's demanding they find a way to be home for childcare. Despite sacrificing so much for their family, our protagonist is now being accused of not helping enough. 😔 Let's see what the internet has to say about this sticky situation...
