A Tractor Tug-of-War 🚜💥

Our protagonist found a broken power wheels tractor for her nephew at a yard sale and, with her boyfriend's help, managed to fix it. The little guy had a blast driving it around her boyfriend's field, and it seemed like the perfect way to bond with her nephew. But when her sister-in-law came to pick him up, she wanted to take the tractor home. Our protagonist preferred the tractor to stay at her house so her nephew would be excited to come over and play with it. Her sister-in-law wasn't too happy about this, calling her an a**hole for getting a cool present he could only use at her house. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation...
