🩺 Sibling Showdown: The Battle of the Doctors! 😷

Well, well, well... looks like we've got ourselves a classic case of sibling rivalry! 👭 Our leading lady, the 31-year-old doctorate holder, found herself in a heated exchange with her half-sister, Sharon, at a party celebrating the latter's acceptance into med school. 🎉 Things took a turn for the worse when Sharon claimed that a non-medical doctorate was nothing compared to her future degree. 😤 Ouch! In a moment of frustration, our doc clapped back, questioning Sharon's ability to make it through med school if she couldn't handle someone else being called a doctor. 😬 Talk about a low blow! 🥊 Now, the family is taking sides, and our protagonist is left wondering if she went too far. 🤔 Let's see what the internet has to say about this juicy drama! 🍿
