The Great Debate: Should He Have Told Her? 🤔

So, there you have it: a slumber party turned sour because the host dad didn't mention his deafness beforehand. The mom's reaction was certainly intense, with her constant calls and texts, and even accusing him of being a "sick creep." But was he really in the wrong for not disclosing his deafness? Or was the mom's reaction completely over the top? Let's see what people think about this situation... 🧐
