I went to a private school for my last three years of high school, so I'm pretty familiar with spoiled teenagers, but they sure as hell don't have the monopoly on being a pain in the ass. I knew my fair share of pain in the ass low/middle class people too.
While in the Army I had this guy who kept claiming his family was loaded. Every day was I'm rich, my family has this, my family has that. he had the most horrendous work ethic as well, like he didn't need to or have to work. "Hey asshole, why the fuck did you join the Infantry then? Couldn't mommy and daddy pay your way through Yale?"
His rank went up and down like the stock market. He would gain rank then loose it for mouthing off. None of use believed him until his parents showed up in a Bentley. And even then, we still treated him like trash because he was an asshole.
Remember, they aren't rich. Their parents are rich. They're just kids who have spent their limited time on this planet in an environment which they're going to be sharply jolted out of when they have to start providing for themselves
I'm glad I never had people like that around when I was in high school. I live in a rural area so it was really just a LOT of pregnant chicks (nothing better to do I guess?) Spoiled rich kids complain about everything because their parents baby them all the time and they're used to getting everything they want. One can only hope they'll grow up and become a decent person. I'd like to see how well they fare in the real world when their parents aren't around to give them money and all that.
I get called 'rich' a lot and even though I don't act like a snob or brag about money or even really dress classy at all, I have the exact opposite problem.
"I only have a flip phone. What kind of phone do you have?" "I have an IPhone....." "HOW DARE YOU HAVE AN IPHONE, THERE'S NO WAY YOU DESERVE IT YOU SPOILED LITTLE SH-T YOU COULD'VE FED THE POOR WITH THAT."
As for those kids, eventually their parents will cut them off/real life will kick their ass and they'll have an actual problem to complain about lol.
Rich people should teach the value of money to there kids and make them understand how lucky they are and how important it is to respect others. I understand how frustrating it must be for you to deal with this kid. He think he deserve what he got, when it's all about luck for him. He was born in the right place at the right moment. There is nothing to brag about. Those people who feel entitled to their "luck" annoy me so much.
I'm not justifying my smelly shoes. Hell, I complained about them. But when you continuously say "ew whats that smell, ew I'm moving lockers" and covering your nose in front of the person I strike that as rude.
I had to buy all the expensive stuff myself when I was a kid. My parents thought it would do me good to learn to save money for something I really wanted. That also made me more conscious of how expensive the stuff really were, and then I took better care of it.
I've contemplated that. In grade 4 some kid bothered me so I beat him up with a text book in front of my teacher. She didn't really seem to give a shit. But when I was done she sent us to the office and neither of us really got in trouble
I agree with you (hell I'd change lockers if I was him too) But I was away for about 2 weeks home sick so I didn't know about the smell. I had just noticed the day he started complaining about it. He just continued to complain about them when I told him that I knew and I'd clean them tomorrow when I have time. Instead he just continued to complain about how smelly it was. In front of my face. Did he not bother to think about how insulted I would have been? You don't go up to somebody (other than a friend) and say "you smell" it's rude.
