Some children get everything handed to them on a silver platter by their parents.

Resulting in their spending their living life without a care in the world, and seemingly zero consequences, and more often than not, full of entitlement.

Some might call these children the luckiest in the world?

But are they?

After all, most of these parents will eventually cut their children off when it's time to enter the real world.

Resulting in their being faced with a cold, hard dose of reality they were not prepared for.


Redditor GhostRxm3 was curious to hear the most delicious stories of spoiled, rich children getting a much deserved reality check, leading them to ask:
"What was the best moment you've seen where the real world hit a spoiled rich kid?"

It Will Get Replaced, Right?

"Knew a rich kid whose parent's bought him a car and he treated it like absolute garbage."

"Purposely driving it really hard and generally abusing it, confident in the notion that his parents would buy him the one he wanted after he destroyed the one they got him."

"Well they didn't buy him another one, ever."

"He rode the city bus and bummed rides off of friends after that."

"He was the most entitled f*cker I'd ever met."

"If he was over at your house he would just help himself to whatever was in the fridge like it was some sort of paid buffet."- Ajj360

Some People Think They're So Special

"I saw Justin Bieber throw a sh*t fit and end up not getting what he wanted."

"We have quarterly team building exercises at my company where you basically go and play mini golf or some other activity capped at $25/person."

"Sometime between 2009 and 2011, I really can't remember exactly, my group just decided to go for a fancy lunch in Downtown Portland."

"After lunch we took one of our coworkers to the semi-famous Nike store which was a couple of blocks away and that was the day Justin Bieber happened to show up."


"When he and his entourage arrived he said something somewhat loudly along the lines of 'Y'all are going to have to leave for a bit 'cause I'm here to do some shopping' and some of his people acted like they were going to try and politely force the already-present customers out of the store so Bieber could shop alone."

"But the Nike employees even more politely told him that was not possible."

"At that point Bieber lost it-I mean he threw a total tantrum because they wouldn't shut down the store for him."

"The tantrum didn't work and he and his folks left in a huff."

"That's really my only 'celebrity in the wild' encounter and it's freaking lame."- Oakwood2317

It's Not Attractive To Gloat

"Spoiled rich kid showed up to school in a $325,000 sports car."

"He was showing off, lost control of the car, and drove it through a brick wall and totalled it."- Galemianah

Think Pink, Or See Red!

"Dad buys a rich kid a Mercedes."

"It was pinkish, salmon colored, so the kid b*tched about it."

"Dad took to away, sold it, and never bought him another car."

"Rich brat had to buy his own."- BrilliantWeb

Blame Game...

"Saw a college guy with a ridiculously expensive car, can't remember the model, rear-end this woman who drove an absolute beater."

"Her car was definitely totalled and his wasn't looking that hot either."

"He got out and started screaming at this woman."

"She was in tears."

"He kept telling her that she was going to pay for this."

"When the cops came, I saw each of them give their statements."

"After that, me and like 10 people came forward and gave our witness statements."

"It sounded like each and every one of us put complete fault on him, which was the truth."

"When the cops went back to him, I saw his face just sink."

"He probably told them it was her fault and just found out that two handfuls of people just confirmed that he's full of sh*t."

"I've never seen that many witnesses stick around for a simple traffic accident."

"I think the other people felt the same way I did."

"That kid was a douche and should be punished for what he did."- the_planes_walker

Some People Actually Hear The Wake Up Calls!

"One of my college roommates was very rich growing up."

"I didn't realized just how rich until I had to explain to her what a coupon was in very extensive detail."

"On multiple occasions she bragged that she wasn't even interested in her major, philosophy, or college in general, but she was at uni because her parents were requiring her to get a degree, any degree, in order to get access to her trust fund."

"I don't remember ever seeing her go to class and she eventually got expelled sophomore year over academic dishonesty."

"I guess this was the last straw for her parents because they cut her off pretty soon after that."

"This actually served as a wake up call."

"She somehow managed to get a public health degree at a different school in spite of the academic dishonesty listed on her transcript."

"She's doing pretty well for herself these days."

"We've kept in touch and last we talked she was considering grad school."- __justbecause

Schadenfreude, or happiness at the misfortune of others, is never kind.

That being said, it's hard not to smile when people who shamelessly flaunt their wealth and privilege suddenly find themselves a creek without a paddle.

Hopefully, this will teach them to make some necessary changes to their lifestyle.

Though, one can only hope that their parents, who enabled this behavior, also learned a valuable lesson.
