People Break Down What Absolutely Screams 'I'm Entitled'

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.


A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"


Where's the fire?

"Impatience in situations where it should be just universally understood that you need patience".- c7hu1hu.

Positions of power.

"I will have you fired!"- Vergo27.

"Generally just leaving something for someone else to deal with."- Splatty_boi_420.

Name your price.

"I work as a ticket seller for a ski resort."

I can do whatever I want, because of my car

"For me its people who have 'Rich' or 'Fast cars' and when there is traffic and they feel like they can go into turn lanes but go straight in front of everyone, or drive on the shoulder as THEY have to get where they are going and THEY are important, at that time."

"I feel like we should be able to record it to show they are doing things illegal and then we should be allowed to shoot their car with paintball guns."

"This way if you see a car shot up with paintballs you can go, okay there is a asshole so we need to watch out for him."- VivaLasVegasGuy

Rulebook slow down.

"Driving too close behind me and beeping when I’m going the limit."- MountainsRoar

Perhaps one of the most obvious ways to unwittingly show off your entitlement?

By being oblivious to how entitled you are.

Remember the Dreamcast? If you don't, then you've been missing out. Sit down, sweet summer child, and listen up.

The Dreamcast was a console so ahead of its time that console has been a Dreamcast since there was a Dreamcast. Too advanced to match its competitors, not appealing enough to be considered part of the next generation. I have fond memories of that console. Crazy Taxi was a gem.

Not everything comes out at the right time. We heard about a few other examples after Redditor rentinghappiness asked the online community,

"In your opinion, what’s something that flopped because it was way ahead of its time?"

People Share The Most Life-Changing Purchases They've Made That Were Worth Every Penny

Consumers who have money to burn often buy things they don't really need, like travel accessories, specialized sports equipment for an activity they've only done once, or even cookbooks, when plenty of recipes can be found online.

You know, try as I might, I just can't bring myself to bother with The Walking Dead. I quit the show some years ago, probably around the time of that weird fakeout with Glen in the dumpster (and then his actual death right after that), but the truth is that the show was getting on my nerves for some time before that.

Did anyone actually care about all the nonsense going on with Deanna and the citizens of Alexandria? And can we go back a bit further and talk about how ludicrous Beth's death at the hands of some power-tripping officer in a hospital ward was? There was such a noticeable drop in quality after the third season that I questioned why I kept tuning in.

But this show is far from the only one to make people want to throw their remotes at their television screens. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor regian24 asked the online community,

"What TV show was amazing at first but became unwatchable for you later on?"

People Break Down Which Professions Hollywood Gets Completely Wrong

More often than not, what gets us to keep tuning in to our favorite TV shows, or drawn to certain movies, is to get a glimpse into various professions which fascinate us, but which we wouldn't ever want to work ourselves.

Needless to say, there aren't many people who find the Indiana Jones films to be a remotely accurate depiction of archaeology, or that the Jurassic Park films show what paleontology is really like.

But many people tend to watch iconic procedurals like Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order under the notion that they both give an accurate depiction of the medical field and the legal world.

Only, how accurate are they?

Redditor Just_Surround_2108 was curious to learn which professions have been documented on screen without as much research as one might expect, leading them to ask:

"What profession does Hollywood get completely wrong in films and TV?"
