The OP asked if she's an a**hole for telling her neighbor that she and her roommates aren't babysitters.

She explained that her neighbors have one-year-old twins and will often dump them on the OP and her roommates.
The OP says that the neighbors are often uncontactable when they leave their kids with them.
Recently, the neighbors stopped the OP and her roommates as they were going out and said they needed them to watch the kids so they could go to a movie.
The OP told them they are not babysitters and will call social services if they dump their kids and become unreachable again.
In an update, the OP said they did call CPS on the neighbors and have been avoiding them ever since.
Here's how people reacted.
"It's completely unacceptable."
"Bold words from someone who dumps their kids on unsuspecting neighbors."
"Not your responsibility."
Shut it down!
"I'd stop dealing with them."
"Good for you!"
"You're literally being taken advantage of."
"That's just flat out parental neglect."
"Of course NTA."
Perhaps cameras are in order.
"They really needed to be told."
What's your take on this situation? Do you think the OP overreacted or was her reaction entirely warranted considering John and Jane's negligence?
It certainly seems that John and Jane have very little respect for the OP and her roommates. Not to mention a lack of responsibility.
