Horrified People Describe The Biggest Spoiled Brats They’ve Ever Seen
We’ve all heard stories about spoiled people with their entitled attitudes or their fits of rage to get what they want. But what exactly does it mean to be spoiled? After all, spoiled people come in all shapes, sizes, ages and wealth.
It’s not a matter of too much love, and it’s not the act of receiving everything you want or being handed everything on a platter. Being spoiled is the belief that you’re entitled to everything and you will do anything and act in any way to get it.
The silver lining to all of this is that sometimes their privileged, entitled attitudes catch up with them! Some lose their privilege, others lose their dignity. But at the end of the day, there isn’t much that’s more satisfying than watching a spoiled child get exactly what they deserve, and in some stories here, they definitely do.
#1 Call the Police
I was at the Ford dealership getting my oil changed and killing time by walking through the big showroom. There is a Mustang GT350 sitting in the middle with a huge bow on it and folks gathered around waiting for someone. Minutes later the family comes in with their son, who immediately yells about wanting it in blue instead of black, and denting the passenger door with a swift kick.
#2 Good Riddance!
#3 Wash Her Mouth Out
I was in a Toys R Us in the 90s. A mother and daughter, who had to be around 12, were shopping. The girl asked if she can have some toy. The mother said, “No, we are here to get a gift for … .” The girl asked once or twice more, and the mom declined.
The girl then said “f*** you, Mommy” and took off running. The mother chased here, while the kid cursed her out. Eventually, it must have ended.
I went to check out, and they were behind me. The mother not only got her the toy she wanted but actually apologized.
My cat will only eat his kibble if it’s whole pieces. He ignores the broken ones. Spoiled cat… I mean brat!
#5 Oooh, It’s Shiny
#6 Pass The Classifieds, Please
#7 It Wasn’t A Good Year
#8 But Me My Own Or Else
#9 Jet Set
In college, I knew a girl whose daddy was some big shot banker or something. He made enough that the wife didn’t have to work, and three kids could go to expensive schools with little financial aid.
This girl didn’t have to work during college, had all her supplies and lodging paid for by daddy, and got to fly home every time there was a 3-day weekend — all on her father’s dime.
I once had to borrow $10 from her to pay for some food when we went out to eat. I promised I would pay her back once I got my check next week (at the time I worked for a cafe), and she seemed cool with it. It turns out she was not cool with it, and promptly bashed me on her blog and to all her other friends, calling me a bad person and a thief. All because I borrowed $10, which I paid her back. I brought up the blog posts, and she was very embarrassed.
Last I heard of her she’s living in a daddy-paid Manhattan apartment, working part-time as a receptionist at a yoga studio. She started a new blog about “the struggle.”
EDIT: Another instance, this was back in high school, so the details are a little fuzzy, but there were two girls. 1. The daughter of oil money 2. the daughter of a garbage truck corporation. They always tried to out-do each other. The oil money girl got a brand new Audi convertible when she got her license.
#10 Rich People Problems
I’m from a rich area in Dallas, TX, so I’ve seen some stuff. I went back for a visit, and my childhood best friend was complaining that her parents were only letting her go to New Zealand instead of Amsterdam. Her dad is a multi-millionaire, and both of her teenage brothers drive Teslas.
My male best friend was complaining to me that he didn’t get to go to prom in a hummer limo, only a regular stretch. He looked like he was going to pass out when I told him that I missed prom in high school to work a night shift.
Glad I don’t know them anymore.
#11 It’s Not Fair!
I dated a girl who was given a brand new car for her 16th. She had it for less than a year before she crashed it. Her parents bought her a used car. She had it for about a year before crashing it. They bought her a THIRD car (used), and when her brother turned 16, she pitched a fit because he got a new car, while she had to drive around her used car.
#12 Jobs Are Beneath Me
I didn’t know her personally, but I’m still friends with a guy who dated one of her friends, and I heard this from him.
We all went to a private, pretty expensive school in the US. The “spoiled rotten” girl got a degree in journalism and promptly moved to London to find a job.
Her parents rented her an apartment, and I assume I paid for her life, for about two years, before she was forced to move back. She had never looked for a job, nor was employed while there.
Once back in the states, she refused to live in her parents’ house, citing she was a grown woman and how could this be expected of her.
Her parents bought her an apartment in NYC.
Last I heard, she still lives in that apartment, without a job, but is/has moved because it’s in “lame Brooklyn,” not Manhattan.
#13 Here. Now Quiet.
#14 Make It Bigger
#15 Just Not Good Enough
#16 There’s Still Hope
My boyfriend’s sister has skirted the line of “spoiled rotten,” but for now, she’s just “spoiled.” She throws fits the moment school and work get a little too challenging for her (like full-on, screaming temper tantrums). Whenever she feels overwhelmed, her mom will spend hours doing her research homework, and writing her papers for her. (I would report this to the school if it wouldn’t be blatantly obvious who did it. Her mom is an educator and should know better.)
She once had her boyfriend drive four hours out (and another four back) to pick her up during a family trip because she didn’t have a space private enough to focus on her school work. We were all sharing rooms and dealing with the lack of space equally (her mom ended up doing that school work for her.) Her parents even offered to give her the master bedroom to herself, which would’ve had two of us sleeping on the floor.
I should mention, this girl is 22 and in college.
She does have a sales job, which she’s surprisingly really good at, which is why I think she still has a hope of being a productive adult.
#17 Change His Name. Quick!
#18 Fetch My Slippers
#19 Champagne, All Around! Or Not
#20 Carry Me, Commoner
#21 Color Is Everything
The car was a brand new M3, and she was maybe 17.
#22 Spoiled Plan, Foiled
I think I’ll break up the negativity in this thread with a good spoiled kid.
I knew a guy in high school whose parents were loaded. I’m talking multi-million dollar house in Louisiana loaded. He’d invite a few of us over for dinner sometimes. I remember one time his parents brought out a big slice of chocolate cake for him and no dessert for us. We were cool with it. It was his house, right? He demands that we get cake too because it’s not fair.
He’d also regularly “loan” us some of his allowance money. He got like $1,000 a month from his parents, so sometimes he’d show up at your door with a $100 and stuff it in your pocket — all around cool dude.
#23 Buy Me Something. Anything
#24 Walking Is For Suckers
#25 Tony The Tiger VS The Captain
It’s me. According to my older brother and sister, I’m spoiled rotten because Mom bought me, Cap’n Crunch after my brother and sister left the house and went off to college.
This happened when I was 15, and 30 friggin’ years later, it’s brought up at every family gathering of how spoiled I was because I got Cap’n Crunch instead of Frosted Flakes.
Oh, the shame I’ve lived with.
#26 Boat Boy
This girl from my school went and begged people to retweet this one tweet of hers because if she got over 100 retweets, her mom would get her a husky puppy.
And yes, she got the number of retweets, and her parents got her the puppy. Just because of… retweets. Yahoo.
#28 Fifty Million?
My family is well off so there are a lot of spoiled brats in the family. My uncle wanted his daughter to do well in life so he sent her to college and hoped she’d continue with some type of career as he slowly cut her funding. She broke down within a few weeks so he backed off, let her quit school, and gave her fifty million because he couldn’t watch his little princess be stressed about anything.
While visiting my ex-boyfriend and his close friend in Switzerland, the friend’s little sister had a birthday dinner with us that night so we decided to get her pie. Pie from the local shop just wasn’t good enough for her apparently and she threw a fit. We took a helicopter to France just to buy a pie.
#29 “Good Kid”
When I was teaching in Kuwait. One of the kids there was a relative of the owner and would just do nothing all day but sleep in class. One day he got mad and hit a teacher and got “suspended” for a week. I say suspended but it was really a vacation in Dubai for him. Came back with a $20,000 falcon that his father bought him because he had been so good. The kid was 12.
#30 Thorn In My Back
I worked at Taco Bell in HS. At the time, we had kids’ meals. This kid comes in with his parents and orders a kids’ meal. Apparently, he had been in recently and already had that toy. He started screaming at me to get him another toy. His dad looked at me with an absolutely dejected look on his face and begged me to go get the toy. I dug through the new box of toys and found one. The kid ripped it out of my hands, and ran outside… Directly into a rose bush.
My coworker was legit laying on the ground laughing.
#31 Math Attack
I was tutoring a 7th grader. I asked him to do the first half of his homework without his calculator. This wasn’t calculus. I was asking him to do basic multiplication. 7×5 4×8 nothing crazy… He threw a tantrum, and I stuck to my guns. His mom came in and asked what was wrong. She asked him to do just 2 problems without the calculator, but he continued to throw a fit. So she went down to one problem. He throws himself on the floor, rolls around, grabs things and throws them, all while screaming that we’re ruining his life and just want to see him fail. At this point I’m just sitting back appreciating my parents, appreciating the fact that I don’t have children… she tries to calm him down, and eventually, she tells me its ok to let him use the calculator. He got a Wii U the next day.
#32 Those Things Are Expensive!
In elementary school, these girls parents would pack her a pizza Lunchable every single day for her lunch. I used to have to sit and watch her unpack it, eat one pizza and the fun size candy that comes in the box, then throw the rest of it away in the trash. Rinse and repeat.
I STILL get angry about it to this day.
Tuition to Yale? Check.
Brand new car? Check.
Trips to Europe? Check.
And all she had to do was eat dinner with her grandparents every Friday night.
#34 Gucci Gang
I dated a girl whose parents would give her sister and her matching Gucci bags every year. She didn’t like that color so she complained to me for a week about how much she hated it. I just wanted to steal it and pawn it off so I could buy an Xbox and a few games.
#35 Small Loan
I once overheard this one guy who received $1 million dollars from his dad and called it a small loan.
#36 Burn Baby Burn
A kid who went to my middle school but a different high school was so upset that his parents bought him the wrong car that he took it into a field and set it on fire.
#37 Rich Kid
In my freshman year of college, there was a kid with really rich parents. I think he was from India. Everyone hated him because he was a real braggart (and wasn’t making it up, so he really didn’t deserve it) and would never study anything and would constantly interrupt the professor to nag them over piddling none-sense, so the rest of us would never get any learning done.
Not everyone has a fortune at home buddy, we actually need to learn from the class.
#38 Uhh… Daddy!
This bratty teenage girl yelled at her dad about her cell phone not working and told him to run to the Apple store for her while she waited in line to buy something else with his credit card. He did it and came back with a new phone for her. Maybe it’s easier to say yes than start a fight?
My cousin. When he turned 16, my aunt and uncle got him a brand new BMW convertible. When he hit a deer and totaled that, they got him a Mustang GT convertible. When he ran that into a ditch (speeding at night on Texas back-country roads), they got him a fully loaded F250 so that he would be “safer”.
#40 Say WHAT?
I went to a super rich summer camp near Boston Mass that my dad was a dean at.
I kid you not, there were some 14-year-old kids that didn’t know how to wipe their own behind.
Game, set, match.
#41 Mercedes So Nice We Bought It Twice
There was a girl in my high school that got a new Mercedes for her first car, at some point the car needed to be refueled so she took her car to the station and filled the tank with diesel….it was not a diesel car.
The car needed an entirely new engine and was pretty much totaled, so her parents bought her a new Mercedes the next day.
#42 Perspective Is Key
This one is just sad, in my opinion. A high school girl I worked with in the previous months had a collection of Uggs, Michael Kors, Rolex watches and the most expensive makeup imaginable. She was immature but sweet and sympathetic, so she wasn’t exactly rotten. I mentioned to the fellow manager that she was spoiled beyond belief, and she told me “that girls mom has brain cancer. She can have whatever she pleases as long as she doesn’t hurt anyone.” I never forgave myself for thinking that she was so lucky. I still talk to her now and then to see how she’s doing.
#43 Try Again
My best friend in 8th grade literally thought the median income in America was $300,000.
#44 Flush The Toilet
My previous roommate’s boyfriend was so beyond spoiled he never lifted a finger – up until 20 he lived so “lavishly” to where he never flushed a toilet. He would do his business, get up, and leave the bathroom and have someone flush for him. Found this out when he moved in with us and when I confronted him, he openly admitted that he’s never flushed a toilet.
#45 Gas Thing
I had a girl in high school call me to ask how to put gas in her Range Rover. I guess her dad took it out once a week and topped it off. In two years of driving it, she never had to stop for gas.
On her first road trip, I got the phone call. “Where does the gas thing go?”
#46 Yeah, That Isn’t Normal
A girl on my floor in first-year university class was spoiled and utterly clueless that her way of life wasn’t a normal thing for everyone.
She asked me once why I was making Kraft Dinner instead of just going out, or making myself something healthy like steak and salad. She really couldn’t grasp the concept of not everyone’s parents were wealthy enough to pay off a monthly credit card, or buy expensive cuts of steak and a nice bottle of wine for dinner like her parents did for her. Her parents were buying $500 a week in groceries for her, easy. Plus footing her tuition, residence, spending money, clothing allowance, travel tickets, and anything else she needed or wanted.
#48 House On The Hills
I have a friend who grew up with a waterslide in his backyard that went down a hill into a swimming pool. He also had a tennis court, basketball court and batting cage built into his backyard.
#49 Toilet On Demand
I knew a girl in high school who would have her mom come and pick her up during school whenever she had to use the washroom because she could only do it at home.
This one little brat kept throwing rocks and everyone told him to stop. He was probably 5. A little teeny two-year-old girl walked up to him with a sizable rock and clocked him right in the eye. She did what every adult at the playground wanted to do.
#51 Bratty Boy’s Rosebush Crash
I worked at Taco Bell in high school. At the time, we had kids’ meals. This kid comes in with his parents and orders a kids’ meal. Apparently, he had been in recently and already had that toy. He started screaming at me to get him another toy. His dad looked at me with an absolutely dejected look on his face and begged me to go get the toy. I dug through the new box of toys and found one. The kid ripped it out of my hands and ran outside… directly into a rose bush.
My coworker was legit laying on the ground laughing.
#52 Loud-Mouthed Brat Donating Prized Possessions
I used to work at a women’s shelter. Christmas time rolls around and a man and his sour-puss teenaged son come to the door. He says his son would like to donate some items to the kids staying at the shelter. Great! The man and his son start hauling in some expensive items. There was an Xbox, a bunch of games, a flat screen, iPod, a cool headset, etc. Turns out the kid ran his mouth and the Dad made him give everything to the kids. Christmas was pretty cool for our gang that year.
#53 Consequences For (Literally) Monkeying Around
I went on a bushwalk in Singapore and there are pretty clear signs around not to feed the monkeys as they can get aggressive.
Anyway, there were these two boys around the age of 8 swearing and throwing sticks and rocks at a little monkey in a tree. The dad was standing there laughing and allowing this to go on. I was about to say something when one of the kids ripped open a bag of skittles and started throwing them.
The monkey immediately ran down from the branch and snatched the skittles; at the same moment another three monkeys came out of nowhere, and in an epic display of monkey-justice, swarmed the kids, making them and the dad run away for dear life.
#54 A Violent Toy-Hog
I guess the situation is epic to me because it seems like spoiled kids always win. I took my kids to a children’s museum when they were toddlers. There was a specific area for toddlers with a whole grocery store set up. Such is life, there was an 8 or 9-year-old kid in the toddler area being a pain. He kept taking all of the kids’ toys, hoarding all the shopping carts. He would hand out a few pieces of food to the kids but mainly wouldn’t let them touch or play with anything else. Now, normally I would let my own kid deal with the situation. He doesn’t take guff from anybody. But they started getting into it when this kid got on my son’s nerves, and then the older kid hit my son. Done. I went over to the kid, got right up in his face and said, “No! We do not hit! Get out!” Instant tears, dropped all the toys and he left the play area. His mom caught the tail end of the scene and tore him a new one. “What is wrong with you?! I can’t turn around for two minutes! And then some other parent has to come in and tell you to behave!” Unfortunately too little too late for that one.
#55 Chastizing A Misogynistic Kid
On the first day of a two-week vacation, I saw my spoiled 10-year-old cousin tell his mother, his older female cousin, his aunt and his grandmother that he wasn’t going to clear his place or rinse his dishes because “that’s women’s work.” For the rest of that two-week vacation, nobody had to lift a finger to clear a plate, rinse a dish or wash a pot because it was his job. At times there were over a dozen of us there.
#56 Payback Via Porcupine
Boy Scout camp out in Utah (when Boy Scouts were pretty much run by the Mormon Church). A porcupine walked through our camp and this spoiled rich kid got a stick and chased it up a tree. We all told him to stop. He wouldn’t listen. Scout leaders were off doing God knows what at the time.
So this porcupine is up in the tree and now the spoiled weenie wants to shoot hard candy at it with his wrist rocket. He can’t get a clear shot so he climbs up the tree and sits on a branch under the porcupine. Shoots a hard candy at the porcupine and hits it, hard.
It was right then that he learned that when a treed porcupine feels threatened, it just lets go and lets the quills break the fall. The big as porcupine fell right onto the spoiled kid’s shoulder, bounced off, hit his thigh and then landed on the ground. It waddled away and we just laughed at the now howling spoiled kid.
#57 Cracked That
I work in an Apple Store as a Genius. A kid (13-15 yrs old) comes in with his iPhone X and tells me that he wants a new phone now. I ask him what is wrong and he says everytime he plays Fortnite or Minecraft he phone gets hot. Explain to him that is expected behavior for graphics-intensive games and explain that I play PUBGmobile and my phone does the same thing. He screams “I want a new fucking phone now!!” And slams the phone on the table, which shatters the display. The phone drops to the floor (which is stone) and shatters the back. He looks at me and blames me for making him slam his phone. I tell him well now the phone is broke and that will be $549 to replace it since it’s now broken. At this point, his mom comes in and sees the phone and asks what happens. Her son starts to say that I did it. She looks at me and says what happened. I tell her and she laughs and tells her son to get the hell out and he will be without a phone until he can pay for it himself.
#58 Sharp-Witted Security Guard
I used to work security at a hospital, and my booth was next to vending machines with candy that would agitate the heck out of kids. Kids have no finesse, and kids crying for candy are really annoying.
So any time I would hear the parent had decided no, but the kid kept on crying, I would walk out in my intimidating all-black security uniform, with the radio and huge key chains and inform the kid that the vending machine is actually out of order.
Every single time they would shut up for good.
I believe I was a good security guard.
#59 Giving Kid’s Toys To Abused Employees
I worked at Chuck E. Cheese for one year.
Some little kid keeps getting mad because he can’t win many tickets from a game. Kid begins to kick and scream. Toss stuff around, etc. I think he tried to hit one of the animatronics. When someone tried to get him to stop he pulled the, “DO YOU KNOW WHO MY DAD IS? DO YOU KNOW WHAT HE CAN DO TO YOU?”
We all just shook our heads and didn’t know what to say. Was his dad the owner? Rich?
“Tell me what I can do.”
We see this guy in a business suit just standing there with a really angry look on his face. It was the kind of face that you look at and wonder if this man ever smiled. The kid just froze up and muttered something.
The man apologized and walked away. He came back a few hours later and gave all the employees gifts. I got an Xbox 360. One of the first generation ones. I still have it with me if anyone wants a picture. He just gave me the console. No wires, controllers, or anything.
#60 A Sassy Snapback From Catholic School
This one was told to me by my parents since I was too young to remember at the time. The neighborhood bus stop for the Catholic high school was on the corner where our house sits. Sometimes when it was raining the kids would wait right next to our house for cover. That didn’t bother my parents. They had kids, they didn’t want somebody else’s kids standing out in the rain. What did bother them was when they realized the kids started passing the time by ripping up all the flowers around the house. Parents called the school to complain and had a nice chat with the principal. That Saturday all the kids who used that stop showed up to replant the flowers, which they or their parents paid for. When the flowers were replanted they got to spend a few more hours helping with our other yard work. Then the school moved their bus stop to the main road on the edge of the neighborhood. That meant about two more blocks of walking every day for most of them and waiting in a field with no shelter from bad weather.
#61 Surrendering Spoiled Brat’s Mustang
Just today, a neighbor bought their son a new six-speed Mustang. He knows how to drive stick, but told his parents last weekend he wanted another car that was an automatic. Today driving through town I saw the Mustang for sale in front of their store for $20k. Someone is going to get a deal. They bought him a used Crown Victoria from the sheriff’s department. Today they made the switch. Idiot kid thought they were going to get him a different Mustang. Ha.
#62 Hilariously Crappy Family Dinner
When I was 12, my dad dated a nice lady with a bratty 9-year-old who would talk back and refuse to do chores which would then be passed to me.
One day at the dinner table everyone is eating and he goes, “Listen!” and rips a tiny fart. His Mom is embarrassed and asks him to stop or go to the bathroom. Instead, he grins and leans in to rip one loose, and accidentally soils himself mid-dinner.
His expression of horror was the best thing ever, I died laughing as he ran clutching the seat of his pants away from the table.
#63 Fighting Thievery With Fire
When I was 11, there was this one kid in the neighborhood who was never disciplined, and as a result, got away with whatever. He loved to steal food. My best friend in the neighborhood was Latina, and as such grew up on spicy food, and would walk around snacking on Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and such. I gingerly tried them and got used to them after a while, so soon I was walking around with my own bag. This spoiled kid decided he wanted some and grabbed the bag from me (which I didn’t even fight him at this time; I had planned this and walked over by his house to instigate). He had one single Cheeto and started crying right away and ran to his mom. He didn’t steal my food after that.
#64 Putting A Plane Passenger In Their Place
I was on a flight from Washington Dulles to Heathrow. This 6/8-year-old kid behind me was screaming the whole overnight flight. Constantly complaining to his mom for food, toys, whatever. Mom was the “Shhhh honey, no honey, shhh sweetheart” type.
Finally, the mom had to get up to use the restroom. The kid starts wailing. The guy next to me leaned up over his seat, turned around, and said “Hey. Kid. Shut up.”
The whole plane didn’t clap but we enjoyed five minutes of dead silence till mom came back.
#65 Punk’s Plunge Into Cactuses
One summer, I was at the babysitter’s with a few other kids, including a girl about my age. She was a spoiled pain in the butt, and would constantly whine and cry when she didn’t get what she wanted. She also liked to instigate fights with the other kids over totally trivial things.
We got into it one day (I can’t remember what it was about), and she went to go sit on the porch. She tripped and landed in a bed of cacti. She got to spend the afternoon crying and getting cactus needles pulled out of her by the babysitter!
#66 Snapping At An Insincere Apology
Oh, I’ve got a fun one. This one I handled myself!
I waited tables in a breakfast diner a few years back. Two ladies come in and tow one of their kids along, a chubby boy with gold chains and a nice watch (the kid is probably 10-11, for reference).
Mom is clearly very tired of dealing with him as he is very demanding, blurts out what he wants before I can say hi, etc. Partway through the meal, he holds up his Sprite cup and shakes it at me, and utters only the word “More!”.
Mom looks aghast and chastises him for being rude, to which he begrudgingly apologizes. I shrugged and told him “Don’t apologize to me, apologize to your mom.”
Was a little worried when I came back around with his Sprite and saw his salty, hot tears streaming down his chubby face.
Mom left me a ten on a $30 bill, however, so I think she was happy with my service.
#67 Ice Cream For Dinner
One kid would not stop screaming until his mom fed him ice cream for dinner. I came over once and that is literally what she served me.
#68 Booting Out A Disobedient Bully
I worked as an outdoor camp instructor. One week, I was on logistics and had to drive the van to pick up kids. I had heard from my friend that one of the kids in his group was annoying, back chatting, lazy, and bullying other kids. When I got to the pickup point, the kids hopped into the van and my mate in the front. My mate Mitch gave me the run down of the kid. As I started the van up I did a visual check of seatbelts and everyone was good, except for the kid. I asked, he said no. I told him I can’t leave until he puts it on. So he did and I started to leave. A minute down the road I heard him unclip his seat belt again so I had to stop the van and ask him again. He put it back on. This happened one more time. On the third time, I just pulled over, turned the van off. Radioed base and asked for my manager and the overseeing teacher who was his dean to come and pick this kid up because he was a danger to the others in the van.
That’s when this kid started pleading and begging. Told him no. I already made the call. He got sent home. My mate Mitch had one of his best weeks after this kid left.
#69 Karmic Puddle Slip
I was at the Vancouver Aquarium with a school field trip for my kids and a few other families. One family thought that their you-know-what didn’t stink and would do everything to push their way to the front, not pay for things, etc. Their kids had heelies. The park was pretty busy. The brats would run into people and just skate away without a word.
We were sitting and waiting for the Beluga show to start and one of the kids comes buzzing in from stage left on his stupid heelies and hits a wet patch and his feet go flying out from under him and he lands flat on his back in a giant puddle in front of the entire crowd.
Everyone started to laugh. It was glorious.
#70 Generous Angry Grandparents
I was at the park with my brother’s wife and their daughter (my niece) and oversaw this exchange: A young kid, probably around 5-7 was being obnoxious. Every 15 minutes or so, his grandparents (I assume) would gather his toys and bring him over to their bench and put him in time out for a few minutes. He threw tantrums, but they would completely ignore him when he screamed and calmly ask him if he was finished. The timeout didn’t start until he stopped crying.
He would go back to playing, then get all wound up, and end up in time out again. This happened 3 or 4 times in the hour-ish we were at the park. Finally, he made a little girl cry by taunting her that she didn’t have a certain toy and he did. I think it was a Minecraft thing. The grandparents calmly walked over, took the toy from him, gave it to the little girl, and they left the park. The boy lost his absolute mind the whole time they were leaving.
#71 Silencing Disrespectful Private-School Punks
Went to see a local high school play set in Nazi Germany when two rich teen girls with their fancy handbags sat the row in front of me. They spent the whole show talking quite loudly about how the actors were so bad, and at one point said, “This is why I go to private school, so I don’t have to sit through this all day”. As the intermission began and everyone was applauding, the guy sitting next to me leaned forward and told them “If you shut up you might learn something”. The look on their face was priceless, and I didn’t hear a peep out of them for the rest of the play
#72 Brutal Blast By Air Freshener
I was at a family event for my girlfriend at the time. One of her cousin’s kids was just running around making a ruckus in spite of the numerous times his parents told him to settle down. Eventually, he took an interest in the motion activated glade air freshener on a counter. (It had been turned off because it would be spraying nonstop with all the people around). So this little 6-year-old is standing on his tiptoes ignoring the constant warnings of “don’t touch that, please” and reaching over pushing buttons and eventually it happens. He flips the switch to ‘on’ and 3 seconds later gets a direct blast of Glade to the face.
#73 Rowdy Brat On The Bus
I was on the bus a year or two back and a kid and his mom were seated in front of me. The kid kept screeching about wanting to ”press the button” (you press a button to notify the bus driver that you need to get off at the next stop) because he liked the beep it made. Every. Single. Bus stop. This little brat screeched asking if he could press it yet. Finally, his mom said he could press the button.
I pressed it.
It only beeps for the first person to press it.
The little kid cried.
#74 Bested By A Monkey
Monkey Forest, Bali. Obnoxious kid poking monkey with a stick. Monkey takes it for a bit. The kid keeps poking. Suddenly, the monkey just snaps and goes for the kid, but the kid has these baggy trousers on and as he tries to run away the monkey grabs hold of the trousers and somehow pulls them down to his ankles.
I swear there was a collective smirk on the crowd of onlookers.
#75 Swimming In Tears
One time I was going to my family’s gym. I had forgotten my card, but my dad was there all the time teaching swimming to disabled people, swimming, or working out.
At the help desk they didn’t recognize me, but I thought for sure they would recognize my dad, so I asked “do you know who my dad is? He’s…” The guy at the counter cut me off and made fun of me for saying that until I left humiliated. I didn’t return to the gym for months.
#76 What Are With These Heelys?
A kid and mum were walking out of a shop, he didn’t want to help her with the shopping, just roll on his Heelys.
Rolled right into a stationary car and then got a clip round the ear from his mom.
#77 Taking It To The School Yard
My neighbor down the street and his little brother were two of the most spoiled kids I’d ever met, and their mother was just horrible. For context, the younger brother’s first word was a swear (I wish I were lying, I really do). One day the younger brother was having a vicious temper tantrum while I was overplaying some games with the older sibling… Unprovoked, he threw a pair of scissors that hit my elbow, and I had to go to the hospital for stitches.
His mother just yelled at him with a Newport hanging out of her mouth, which I felt wasn’t sufficient justice. The next day I went back, left arm in a sling, and beat him up… playground style.
#78 Taking It To The School Yard
This kid from middle school was incredibly spoiled and wanted a Game Gear for Christmas, his parents surprised him in class with it on the last day before Christmas break, and gave this speech in front of our whole class. It was ridiculous.
He didn’t get the games he wanted so he left in the middle of his mom’s speech and went to the bathroom, threw it in the toilet, and came back and yelled at his parents in front of everyone, and told them he hated them and then cried the rest of the day. We got back from Christmas break and we were all telling each other what we got. His parents didn’t give him anything for Christmas, his sister and brother got tons of gifts, but they didn’t give him squat. He also didn’t get anything for his birthday 2 months later, or Easter, or the following Christmas.
We did pizzas every Friday, he was forbidden from eating pizza, he never got snacks in his lunch, he was grounded, never got to go to anyone’s birthday parties, the teachers were under strict orders to keep kids from giving him cookies or any kind of snack. For the first month after Christmas, he wasn’t allowed to play at recess. Dudes life was on lockdown. We all felt really bad for him but we were 12, so we didn’t say anything.
#79 You Tell ‘Em
These three boys who were a few years younger than my son kept trying to wrestle with him every day at recess. I got tired of telling my son to just walk away, so one day, I told him he could fight back.
These kids tried to wrestle him, and my son throws one of them on the ground. The victim’s parents call me up to tell on my son. I told them I didn’t care. If their children wanted to wrestle with my kid, then my kid is now allowed to fight back even if he is older and bigger.
#80 Eat Rocks!
When I was 5 or 6 my parents took my brother and me to this local park to watch fireworks for Canada day. There were lots of families there and tons of kids playing on the playground and having some fun with sparklers. There was this one little brat of a boy that kept shoving everyone around on the playground and stealing their sparklers and putting them out. The playground had all these little pebbles on the ground and at one point he pelted me with a bunch of them. All of this was happening in front of his mother who acted totally oblivious. When the fireworks were on I was sitting near him. He was munching on one of those mini cereal boxes of Rice Krispies. When he wasn’t looking I poured in a bunch of the little pebbles into the box and then watched him grab his next handful and chomp down on a mouthful of rocks and cereal. He immediately started crying and I disappeared into the shadows.
#81 Shaming Neil Armstrong’s Grandson
Neil Armstrong’s nephew or grandson or whatever was attending Space Camp the same week I was. There were many rumors of him being spoiled rotten. It was confirmed true that almost every day he was at risk of getting kicked out. The last day of camp Neil actually spoke to a huge crowd of space nerds. Minutes before the speech, that kid got kicked out, publicly, in front of everyone at the camp for scream obscenities and claiming that no one was worthy enough to listen to his grandfather speak. Neil must have been so embarrassed.
#82 Better Than You Afterall
When I was 12, I won a free pizza party for all my friends for being a “Reading Superstar”. Because I was a very, very awkward kid, I proudly wore my “Reading Superstar” button to school. A mean girl and her mean friends pushed me into a locker, knocked off my glasses and took my button. I distinctly remember this horrible girl calling me a “nerd baby” who ‘thought I was better than everyone else”.
I had NEVER spoken to this person before, and I don’t think I’ve spoken to her once since, even though we went to a small high school, but I did learn from Facebook that a few years ago, her grandchild got taken by CPS. When we were in our mid-30s.
So yes. I do think I’m better than you, you trash.
#83 Puppy Play
My youngest cousin is the most spoiled. He refuses to share toys and steals them from everyone else. He decided that all of our puppy’s toys were his and put them all together. Well, puppy knows his toys and, since they are combined with the brat’s, sees all the others as his too. Now every time the brat takes a toy away from the puppy, the puppy steals another and the kid can’t keep up.
#84 That Shut Him Up
This other day at the swimming pool a kid was pestering his father because he didn’t want to leave. He was making such a fuss throughout the men’s dressing room that the dad snapped at him: “One more word out of your mouth and I’m selling your PlayStation!”
That shut the kid up.
Had I been pestering my dad when I was his age, I’d get rapped upside the head.
When I was maybe 10, my 12-year-old sister snatched my last sushi roll off my plate and ran out back to eat it, laughing hysterically. While running, she accidentally slipped on a pile of fresh steamy dog poop and fell on her face.
#86 Do You Know Who I Am?
Before I retired, I worked in a paper mill office. One of the rules of the mill was no dangling earrings because of all the moving equipment, rollers, dryers, etc. Many kids of employees were hired as summer vacation relief. One of the girls whose father worked on carpet row in the main office came in wearing dangly earrings. She was told to remove them and looked at her supervisor and said, “Maybe you don’t know who I am”. She was immediately fired.
My school bully, the spoiled rich kid with a family of reasonably high regard in the small town community.
After years and years of dealing with his nonsense, even the school counselor thought he could do no wrong. Well, our senior year in high school, he gets caught with illegal substances on school grounds and gets expelled.
#88 It’s The Devil!
Was shopping at Target, around the time the last Twilight movie came out. In walks an exhausted dad and his preteen daughter. Dad grabs a basket and starts grabbing things while the daughter screeches over and over.
“You SAID we were going to see TWILIGHT DAD! THIS DOESNT LOOK LIKE TWILIGHT!” On repeat.
Dad snapped, flinging his basket to the ground and yells right back at her, “TWILIGHT IS THE DEVIL! AND SO ARE YOU! We are NOT seeing the movie anymore.”
He picked up his basket and went on his merry way, the girl silent.
#89 It Took 3 Crashes?
A girl I work with. She was 18, rich, always got everything she wanted.
She had 3 car wrecks in a year, her daddy replaced the car every time with a new one. Always bragged about clothes or a car or whatever. One day, her dad just got fed up and cut her off completely. She lost her car, got kicked out, everything. The following day, she was Ubering to work and I passed her in my brand new Jeep that I had saved 6 months for and made sure to flash the biggest smile.
#90 My Nintendo!
When I was a kid, Hurricane Hugo hit our tract development in Charlotte. We all lost power.
Except for Jason across the street, he was a year younger than us (third grade, he was second grade). He was bragging, “MAYBE you can come to play my Nintendo…nah”. We got power back two days later, his went out, as a result, they didn’t get it back for a week.
No, Jason, you can’t play MY Nintendo, go play yours…
#91 Mom Can Be Spoiled Too
Not the kid, but the ignorant mother. She left her little brat to run wild in marks and Spencer.
He picked a large expensive cake off the shelf, dropped it on the floor and stomped on it.
The manager came over and told her she would have to pay for it.
#92 Trouble With Sisters
When my fat cousin Dudley fell into the Python enclosure at the zoo.
Might have been my fault.
#94 That’s Kind Of Mean
I worked with a really annoying kid in high school who was the child of a Ford dealership owner. The kid was a total brat to everyone, constantly flaunting his father’s money, etc.
He did something to his mother (I forget what) and his father found out about it. On his 18th birthday, his father surprised him with a brand new Mustang Cobra.
Or, so he thought.
Inside the trunk was a sign that said he (the kid) was an asshole for doing what he did to his mother, and that he didn’t deserve any car. Happened in front of all of his friends at his birthday party, definitely ruined that birthday.
