"My toddler cousin, when I visited her while in college, apparently was treated to a birthday party whenever she wanted one. Complete with friends, presents, cake etc. She had had 3 or 4 that year already when I visited in the early fall... Yes, she didn't quite turn out 100% ok either" (Source).
"I knew a girl in high school who had a very spoiled boyfriend. His parents weren't rich or anything, but they did stuff like buying him a vintage muscle car for his 16th birthday. Anyway, this girl had three part-time jobs in high school, paid for everything she bought with her own money, including sharing the cost of a nice, safe used car with her parents.
I think the guy was either jealous of the time she spent working or maybe it was her obvious autonomy with regard to money, but apparently he was so concerned with the issue that he asked his parents to match his allowance to what the girl made at her three jobs. He didn't want to 'feel bad anymore' about how much money of her own she had. That's spoiled" (Source).
"When I was in college, my middle class roots fiancé lived in a fraternity house with some relatively wealthy people. One particular person sticks out for me as the high bar for spoiled behavior. He had a penchant for wearing Calvin Klein boxer briefs. They were roughly $25 each (and this was before you could buy them at Costco).
He sent out his laundry to be washed and folded (and dry cleaned), and never did any of it himself, but he absolutely refused to have anyone touch his underwear. In fact, because of this, he refused to wear the same pair more than once. So, every single day, he would open a brand new, $25 pair of underwear. And, every single day, he would throw out yesterday's underwear. If someone happened to touch his underwear for any reason, there would be another change. He was ordering them by the case. No one else has ever even come close to this on my spoiled-o-meter. How do I know this? His fraternity brothers, always happy to scrounge through the garbage, noticed that perfectly good underwear was going to waste. So they all stocked up. And then when they all (and I mean all) had more than enough underwear to go around, and there was still an endless supply, they started an underground underwear selling ring" (Source).
"I saw so many growing up in Gig Harbor it is not even funny, but this has to be the top. There was one girl in my middle school who would have 'half birthday' parties in addition to birthday parties. Basically she figured out what day it was 6 months before her next birthday, and invited her friends to a party her parents supported. Her dad owned a movie theater chain. In the seventh grade, her dad booked Wild Waves for her on her half birthday, and paid Britney Spears to sing at her party. They had a Wild Waves slumber party... All the cool girls in the school went and talked about it for weeks. 'Britney Spears was so cool' 'Britney Spears signed my yearbook!' blah blah blah. Britney Spears.. not only at a birthday party, but a half birthday party. If that is not spoiled, I do not know what is" (Source).
"I was shopping at a Hugo Boss store in California with my girlfriend when all of a sudden a young looking (~17) teen walks in with a private butler. The kid announces to the store attendees and everyone present that the entire mall is not 'high end' enough for him and that he would rather be at his father's penthouse in Las Vegas. The Butler (wearing formal Butler attire with a bowtie and everything) looks visibly embarrassed to have to follow this kid around and hold his shopping bags.
The kid then starts buying many suits and other clothes without trying them on, and the store attendant brings out some champagne for him. I'm pretty sure the kid spent $10,000 in 5 minutes. I asked the store attendant if I could have some champagne too, and the kid said that 'clearly I wasn't spending enough money to deserve champagne.' I said I left my visa black card at home and wanted to shop in other stores too. The kid said I clearly don't know fashion...
The kid then turns to my girlfriend and says 'Damn girl, those boots are fierce, where did you buy those!' She said, 'I got them at Ross....' (FYI Ross is a budget store for those who don't know. Those were $10 boots. I guess that kid doesn't know fashion). The kid then exclaims 'Ross! Don't tell me about no Ross, don't even talk to me with those cheap shoes' and proceeds to storm off.....
Literally the most spoiled person I have met in my entire life. It didn't help that the kid had an extremely high pitched and screechy voice. It felt like from a movie, but it wasn't, sadly. (And I am from Los Angeles near Hollywood/Beverley hills, so I have met plenty of spoiled kids). I never did get that glass of champagne" (Source).
"I used to go to public school in a very rich town in Connecticut. One day, I was walking down the hallway to see a huge crowd forming around someone's locker, with a huge stench accompanying it. I walked over to see what the commotion was all about, only to be met with, 'Get back! Get back! Everybody go to class, now.' Not one to break the rules, I obliged. Still curious, but I figured whatever it was would soon be circulating the school in the form of whispered gossip.
And sure enough it was. A girl, two grades above me, had asked and begged her parents for a puppy as a birthday present. They had dared give her a white bunny rabbit instead. So, she reacted the way any rational person would- she brought the bunny to school with her, and suffocated it in her locker. School personnel smelled it within hours of its death.
This truly scarred me. The fact that she was went so far as to kill an innocent animal, to, what. Get back at her parents? Prove she was responsible enough for a puppy? Definitely one of the most spoiled people I've ever had the chance to meet" (Source).
"I have a relative who is married to a man who brings her coffee in bed each and every morning before he makes breakfast for her and their two school-aged children. He then goes to work. He does all the grocery shopping, usually on the way home, because he does all the cooking. This she says, is because 'He's a much better cook than I.' He also walks the pet dog before and after work. On one visit, this relative complained that the back yard hadn't been mowed because her husband was lazy. She failed to mention that he's the one usually running errands for the home or for the children.
On one occasion while staying at their home, I awakened to find their dog lapping at a bowl without water, even though this wife and mother was awake playing computer games. I gave the poor thing water. I did this after pointing out that the dog consistently had none in her bowl, and was told that feeding their pet or giving her water 'is not my job.' Her children fetch drinks, a tissue, whatever, as she lounges in front of the TV or at the computer. Hubby often brings surprises home for this stay-at-home-wife/mother to make her happy. Did I mention she has NEVER worked?
During one heated discussion I heard her say that no one ever does anything for her. I pointed out how fortunate she should feel for everything they do for her. Her response, 'Anything anyone does for me doesn't count if I don't ask them to do it.' WOW! I thought those are the things that count the most" (Source).
"At a previous Academy I worked at, one of our high school students was told if he got into a 'reasonable college' after he graduated from one of the most expensive boarding schools in the world, he would get a Ferrari. At least, that's what I was told. I did have dinner with him once and found out he went to Institut Le Rosey in Switzerland which costs a cool $114,300 USD a year. So, you would think my story ended right there to prove I had been in the presence of possibly one of the most spoiled kids I have ever seen in life. However, it doesn't.
What I heard after that was that he went onto say how jealous he was of his classmates. Why? He was jealous because at lunch, the children of middle east oil barons were taking helicopters to lunch. The Ferrari he was going to get the year after didn't come fast enough.
I felt bad for him. So, I let him rest his head on my shoulder and patted him on his head. I had to relieve him of the agony he was feeling. Obviously, most of us can feel his pain" (Source).
"I was friends with a boy named Tyler on Facebook when I was 13 or 14. We had known each other since grade school. On the day of Christmas he posted a video of himself, 'My parents got me this crappy laptop!' He then shoves it across his desk, 'Haha, I hate my stupid parents and this crappy gift...' The camera cuts to him outside with the laptop. He then throws it off the deck, smashes it, and stomps on it for a good 2--3 minutes longer. He kicks it aside and laughs. I was so young and I was mortified he would do that to his parents! To the laptop, to the gift. It was so disgusting" (Source).
"Someone I know actually refuses to serve himself. He pounds on the table and orders his wife to serve him. She actually stands behind him to serve him, putting the food on his table, and then putting condiments on at his direction. She even cleans the dishes between courses for him. After he eats, he reviews her cooking and tells her how she could improve. I wish I was kidding" (Source).
"One of my mother's best friends is the daughter of a billionaire, who founded a major fast food chain. She has never worked a day in her life. She has no idea what it means to actually hold a job. She receives an 'allowance' of $20,000 a month. She spends her days sky-diving. She does 2--300 jumps a year. I remember her visiting our family a few years back, when she and my mom got plastered. Listening to her complain about her 'problems' was like nails on a chalkboard. 'Oh, I could only get in 10 jumps last month,' 'I told my dad I wanted to get a Ferrari, but he said no,' 'My dad wants to drop my allowance to $15k a month. Can you believe that?' Ugh" (Source).
"A family friend was extremely spoiled. His parents were both medical doctors. They told him for his 16th birthday he could have any luxury car as long as it had 4 doors. He wanted a fully loaded Lexus with 2 doors. His parents told him he could have it, but it needed 4 doors. He screamed and complained about how they weren't being fair. The nerve of this guy. He wasn't going to pay for the car, the insurance, the gas or the maintenance. Eventually, he reluctantly agreed and his parents purchased the car for him.
Bonus story: About 10 years later, I go to his parent's office for a checkup. His mother tells me that she's so happy my parents didn't give us everything, raised me to work and not have my hand out constantly looking for mommy and daddy welfare as adults. She wishes that she would had done the same thing. Those words stuck with me. Don't excessively spoil your children" (Source).
"My aunt, who used to be a professor at college, had a private lessons business at her home for children and teens. Most there were the sons/daughters from the 'rich and famous' from my area. I used to help her some afternoons and, yup, I had the chance to see firsthand how these kids behave. Some of them were very down to earth and then... There was THAT girl! She was around 12, and she was the daughter of a very well known businessman from my area. Her dad used to have a couple casinos and some restaurants back then. She used to complain about EVERYTHING. She used to be left and picked up by her bodyguard in a huge armored SUV, and her attitude was always, 'You'll never ever deserve to clean the dust of my shoes.' She used to talk all the time about how fabulous her life was, how expensive (including prices) were her shoes, shirts, etc. She also used to brag a lot about how her mother was swimming in The Maldives while her dad was 'running the NYC marathon in the morning, having lunch in Paris, and then, dining in Australia at the end of the very same day.'
One day she said she had to write an essay about crickets. I was on the PC as usual, so, I told her not to worry, I could find something for her. And I did. In fact, I wrote her an outstanding essay on crickets. She took it happily, didn't thank me (which I expected), and left late that afternoon.
Next day, she appeared crying and making a MASSIVE fuss because her teacher humiliated her (I highly doubt it!), she said her teacher in front of the whole class said it was the worst thing she had ever seen in her life, that all of her classmates did an excellent job talking about the crickets while her job was considered a piece of crap... blah blah blah... All of that during at least 15 minutes, while crying and shouting because she had the worst day of her life at school, so bad her classmates were calling her 'the cricket' (Are you serious!?)
She approached to me and shouted 'I NEED A NEW PAPER FOR TOMORROW! My teacher gave me a second chance, and YOU HAVE TO DO IT BECAUSE OTHERWISE YOU'LL REGRET IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!' Honestly, I wanted to smack her, but, I just got a poker face; I stood up from the chair, and said with the calmest voice I could find, the worst words she had probably heard in her whole life: 'Thanks, but no. Do it yourself.' Her face got red! It was like a volcano about to erupt. She started to cry and shout even louder! Hyperventilating! Everything! That girl was acting like she was about to have a heart attack. 'YOUUUUU HAVE TO DOOOO IT!!!!!!!! THAT'S YOURRR JOOOOBBBBB!! I was humiliated at school and...' Me: 'Once again, thanks, but, no. I'm out.' And, yep. I got out for the rest of the afternoon.
My aunt said that girl spent the rest of the afternoon absolutely stunned. Finally the girl was picked up in the huge armored SUV, as usual. A couple days later my aunt called me and told me with a relieved voice that I had done the best thing ever! My aunt told me she was trying to get rid of that girl since months ago, and, well, after that evening she didn't wanna go there anymore. Almost a year and a half later, we found out that her dad wasn't exactly a very legal businessman... It was quite the scandal here! Most of his businesses closed because of police investigations, and as of now, I'd like to know what happened to that spoiled brat, and how she coped with it" (Source).
"I once met a girl in college. She told me that she was previously studying chemical engineering in a very, very, very expensive university in my country, but she dropped out because she didn't like it, she always wanted to study art, which was the subject she was studying in the free university we met in. When I asked her why she opted for that university in the first place, if she knew she didn't want to become an engineer she answered: 'Because my dad pissed me off, so I made him pay the tuition knowing that wasting that money would infuriated him.'
She also made her boyfriend buy her expensive gifts, and always bragged about them, and when he couldn't buy her something she would be pissed and withhold sex until he complied" (Source).
"This is a true story. A Chinese student was shocked when she saw orange peels. I thought she was joking. But she was not. Apparently, her grandma always peeled the skin off for her so she never knew about the peels. wow. And she was 18 at that time...Yup, some people have very loving grandmas.
Another spoiled person that I have seen was a person who did not know how to use a microwave. In college, I have seen people who could not use an oven and other stuff. But a microwave!!!! We were so shocked. Apparently, this guy's family was quite rich and he had no idea where the food came from. Unfortunately, for him, my undergrad had everyone live in dorms for the first year unless for special circumstances. Well, he had quite an adjustment time, sharing bathrooms, and not having food whenever he wanted" (Source).
"At my age, I've seen so many, but the one case that takes the cake is what my best friend from high school went through with her new husband, years ago. They dated for years and Meg thought she knew everything there was to know about Ronnie. After they were married, however, she found out she didn't know Ronnie at all.
The younger of two boys, Ronnie and his brother were spoiled way beyond the meaning of that meager word. Ronnie expected Meg to change the sheets every day, like his mother had always done. After they were washed, they were to be ironed and folded correctly, before returning them to the linen closet. Ronnie expected Meg to iron everything, including his underwear. After all, his mother always had and that is what he was used to.
I think Meg put her foot down saying, 'No' so often, she stomped a hole right through the floor. Their marriage lasted a total of two months" (Source).
"I immediately thought of a girl I knew in college, over 30 years ago. She was a pleasant enough girl from a VERY wealthy family in New Orleans, attending a small liberal arts college in the Northeast. Although she didn't flaunt her wealth it was pretty obvious.
She had a private phone line in her single room, while most of the rest of us shared a phone booth and had double rooms or larger. Each year before the semester started, her parents had her Mercedes driven up north, while she flew back to school. Anyone else in the dorm with a car clearly got a family hand-me-down.
But the thing that really showed me that she was spoiled was her subscription to Vogue magazine (keep in mind that back then there was no Amazon Prime or other quick easy ways to order items you wanted). Each month when Vogue arrived, she would curl up in a chair and read it cover to cover, turning down the corner of some pages. Then she would call home (picture this in a very heavy drawn out New Orleans accent), 'Oh Mama, I just have to have the cute little skirt on page 118, but I don't know what color I want. Just send me a few nice colors. And the gown on page 76 would be perfect for Uncle Billy's party on New Years.'
Sure enough, a couple of weeks later, she would get a big package in the mail room with hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of the clothes she had asked Mama to buy for her. I would be sitting in class wearing my finest Allman Brothers t-shirt and she would be sitting next to me in a $300 cashmere cardigan. Pretty spoiled" (Source).
