We are at risk of developing a new ‘sub’ class of people bent on self entitlement. These people only see their world through their own eyes and are oblivious to the needs of those around them.
Indeed, there are several ‘pointers’ which identify them as needing to be ‘the one’ or the ‘centre’.
Such as backing into car spaces expecting all traffic to stop to feed their desire to reverse in instead of driving forward into a car space without holding up traffic and reversing out when there is a gap in that traffic. And, they get easy access to their boot. Simple. This is particularly prevalent at South Melbourne market where the stupid class back in then realising they can’t load their shopping they have to drive forward into the traffic to open the boot. Not very intelligent. I have even seen morons backing into 60 degree parks - always at the expense of other road users.
How about these same people adorning their cars with tinted windows so dark they have difficulty seeing out. I have been hit by such a goose backing straight into me. You couldn’t see anyone in his car as the windows were nearly black. This is close to insanity.
These same people also believe their bodily needs must be met by everyone else. They believe they have a right to use the toilets in any restaurant despite not being a customer thereby proving a complete misunderstanding of ‘private’ property. They refuse to accept the fact that any person in a restaurant is there as a result of an invitation by the restaurateur. It’s not public access. Perhaps they should advertise their own house as a public toilet.
Another, this sub class also has a speech impediment through and by the use of the word ‘like’ which they can annunciate as many as 5 times in one sentence. Why? Perhaps it’s a bit ‘like’ [properly used as a conjunction] saying ‘ummm’ or ‘errrr’ to retain the no gaps in their own personal need to maintain primacy through their speaking agenda. They believe their opinion is so important that everyone will want to hear what they have to say but to make sure ‘like’ is used in speech as an adverb and a meaningless filler and/or to signify the speaker's uncertainty about an expression just used. In other words, of zero value but designed to keep attention on the speaker. Like, who cares?
Then, the whole ‘look at me’ concept of share plates in a restaurant. I watched one hero demand 8 share plates for 3 scallops which he diligently cut up and served to his lesser dining companions lauding their gratitude for a cold, minuscule and inappropriate morsel. He believed he was ‘entitled’ to demand the restaurant at their cost provide extra everything so he could feed his ego.
Lastly, a further speech impediment proving the often loud self entitled are unable to use the language instead replacing adjectives with expletives. Swearing is inappropriate and it identifies an idiot. Swearing is not a part of normal speech except if self entitlement takes over from social norms. Add people feeling the need to shout a conversation and see a person with a self entitled view of their own self. ‘Look at me – I’m talking loudly so you mere mortals can bath in my magnificent oratory.’
