Ah, undeserved entitlement. It’s that thing that makes your first impression of a person go sour in a matter of moments because of how obnoxious, arrogant, and in-your-face high-and-mighty they’re acting. Greedy, needy, and unabashed, the entitled can be found everywhere—you just need to keep an eye out for those who believe they’re at the center of the known universe.

There’s an online community that’s entirely dedicated to shaming entitled people, and it’s a heck of a ride. We’ve compiled some of the subreddit’s best posts to show you the insane levels of entitlement some folks can reach, and it’s making our eyebrows rise high enough to merge with our hairlines.

Scroll down, upvote your fave pics, and be sure to let us know in the comments what the most entitled people that you’ve ever seen have done. Got any tips on how to deal with the ultra-entitled? Let us know as well.

With over 284k members, the subreddit is doing very well for a community that is just over a couple of years old. The subreddit’s moderators want to show the internet what others’ experiences with people who “always get their own way and are better than everyone” have been like.

However, just because a person’s entitled, it doesn’t mean that they deserve getting hate online. For this reason, the subreddit forbids including any information that could make it possible to identify the people connected to any posts. From names and phone numbers to addresses and locations, it’s best to keep those things private. People change, after all, and you never know if somebody who was narcissistic yesterday might have turned into a Good Samaritan today.

This is a point in history we dont want to be defined by race,sex,or sexuality but we are happy for the block of time.

This has nothing to do with being one of the millions of people born between 1946 and 1964 and everything to do with having a sense of entitlement. I can find any number of 30-50 year olds who would do this.

I am of the boomer generation and try to be nice to people as much as possible. No matter what generation we are, we can be good or bad. Let's just be good. It feels so much better. Sorry you had a bad experience with someone I may have gone to school with. Y'know I think I remember having a bad experience with them too when I was younger than you! So let's just be nice.

I wonder why the person's age mattered in this story? It was a person being awful to someone they thought they could bully. Age is irrelevant - there are bullies of all ages.

Why do you find it necessary to identify an individual by their generation? What has that got to do with being nice or rude? An individual of any age can be rude to the clerk behind the counter. They could also be extremely generous with tipping and comments. Shaming someone for their age is wrong in so very many ways.

You know, there are a lot of years covered by the term "Boomer." I was born in 1949 and don't find the people I grew up with nearly as self-centered and disrespectful of others as some of the generations that came after me. Look at most of the volunteers in your community. They are probably Boomers.My father called these people the "Old Heads," the ones that had been around long enough to have had an awful lot of experience. It might be a good idea to listen to some of that experience rather than highlight a rude individual as being characteristic.

Starbucks barista wouldn't make an iced coffee because 'it wouldn't live up to the Starbucks standard'. I was with two coworkers so... I continued and asked only a bit louder, Same comment from him and louder. Two more tries and out comes the manager, 'WHAT is going on?' Barista says he won't honor my request because of the standard thing. The manager sneers at him and says to 'give the man what he ordered' and walked away. I get my drink and as I turn to see a line that has grown since this started, I hear coworker number one say 'Iced coffee please!'

I’m a late boomer (1960), but have also spent decades in jobs where customer service was either all or part of my duties, so I would never berate anyone like a nut job Karen would do. I know how it feels to be—-undeservedly—-on the receiving end of that treatment. Honestly, the old saying “you can kill more flies with honey than you can with vinegar” is just so true.

All that had to happen here is the lady needed to ask for extra chocolate, and pay for it. Was that not put forth as an option by the teenager? If the lady kicked up a fuss about paying for it, then let the manager deal with it. No one comes off good here. Poor customer behaviour, poor customer service, and someone who really just needed to mind their own business.

According to ‘Better Help,’ a sense of entitlement is considered to be a personality trait where a person believes that they deserve privileges or recognition that they didn’t earn. One way that a person can become entitled is growing up in a household where they don’t learn how to earn rewards which makes them expect them for nothing when they grow up.

In short, entitled people make life all about them: everything has to benefit them, everything is about them, and they believe they’re superior to everyone else. That means that the entitled rarely compromise with others, they lack empathy, and they get frustrated when the world doesn’t rush to fulfill their every whim.

While it’s obvious that entitled folks have a strong desire to be at the center of attention, some of them do this through self-pity and playing the victim. Though they might seem extremely confident on the surface, some of them have a lot of insecurities that they’re working through.

In fact, research shows that entitled people can end up hurting not just those around them, but also themselves because they have unrealistic expectations which can’t be met sometimes.

Why do people not get that business run on money- the income they make from whatever they sale or produce? Ridiculous.
