There's spoiled and then there's spoiled rotten. You'll realize the difference after reading these stories...
Never Good Enough
In high school, 1987. This really pretty girl was about to turn 16 and her parents got her a fully frame-up restored 65 mustang. Wasn’t what she wanted, so they got her a new Porsche 944 (not the only one at my school). It was customized with rims and upholstery that had her name embroidered on it. When she graduated they got her a new Lexus sedan. Her father was a preacher at a small rural church. Her mom was a stay at home trophy wife. Still have no idea how they pulled that off Source
Was at the Ford dealership getting my oil changed and killing time by walking through the big show room. 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 kickSource
Temper Tantrums For Days
Sister refuses to look for a job and as a result moves back home. She uses my parents vehicle to drive around with her boyfriend and go to parties and s—. One day there’s a family emergency and the car is not in the driveway for her to use. She throws a tantrum, trashes the house, and runs away with her boyfriend. Btw, my sister is 22 years old Source
Now That’s One Bad Driver…
A girl in my high school had totaled 4 cars by the time she graduated on account of crashing two, flipping one onto someone’s lawn and accidentally running someone else’s car completely over Source
A Repeat Offender
Okay I’ve got one. My boyfriend’s little half sister. So her parents are real hippies, live at least 40 minutes from the nearest town which doesn’t have much anyway, they live on an Eco friendly farmlet which her parents built from scratch. Since the age of say 10? She’s now 16, my boyfriends sister has been a stealer of money. Started off by taking coins when she was babysitting for neighbours eventually finding out where stashes of cash were kept and then the neighbours found out and told her parents. They were mortified but didn’t do much apart from tell her off and make her promise she wouldn’t do it again. Little things like that happened and same outcome. Then her grandad passed away who left a share of $1mil to her mother which was used to upgrade the farm buy more land etc. she stole money from her dead granddads wallet in his f—ing pocket when he was lying in the house dead when no one was looking. All she got was a bit of a tell off. She never has to give the money back because she spends it first. Her parents just say ‘work it off’ by doing chores.
Now she’s 16 and her latest crimes have been stealing her mums card to buy $800USD of makeup online. Her parents took the make up from her hoping to return it but not before she replaced the make up in the boxes with old bottles. They let her keep the make up still let her do all her school camps, parties etc. the last I heard, her parents started a BnB, made a couple of grand only to have it disappear because she found out their internet banking passwords transferred it to herself, then spent it on food, friends, make up all in a weekend before they could find out.
Her punishment? Working it off by doing chores.
It makes me sick. I had to do chores for free! I’m still doing chores for free in my own house. F—ing hellSource
My employer’s two sons have everything paid for so they never have to worry about cost. They both have everything they want and need. One of them likes expensive shiny things and he’s always thrown fits until he got what he wanted from what his dad told me. For Christmas, he wanted a $1200 55″ Samsung curved tv, even after his dad stated that his budget is $1000 for each. He threw fits and got mad at his dad and his dad, being the wimp he is, apologized and ended up buying it for him anyway. The son is 21 years old Source
Take That Mom And Dad
The parents did not even have money. He wanted new clothes was told no, so he put his clothes in bathtub and poured bleach on them. Parents bought him new clothesSource
This will probably get lost, but this is one of my favorite spoiled kid comeuppance stories ever.
Had a friend “Don” who had a 2 kids, a year apart in age. When his son turned 16, Don was ready to give him his PRISTINE Volkswagen. Don really babied his cars, so this Jetta, though about seven years old, was truly in like-new condition, a car that most normal 16 year olds would be thrilled to have. I would have been thrilled to have it myself!
So Don tells his son the plan and his son goes “Dad, I’m not driving THAT car. It’s a seven year old Jetta. I need a new pickup truck.” After taking a deep breath so he didn’t throttle his son, Don simply said “Well, then, I’ll drive the Jetta for one more year and then give it to your sister when she’s 16. If you want a new pickup truck then you’ll either have to ask your mother or buy one yourself.”
Now Don and his kids’ mother had been divorced for years and, through a series of bad choices, his ex-wife had barely two dimes to rub together. Don had gotten remarried to a woman who was a very successful and wealthy business owner. So his son (very mistakenly) thought that Don and his current wife would foot the bill for whatever the son wanted; how very wrong he was…
Fast forward a year, his daughter is very happily driving the Jetta. Don bought himself a brand new Mazda. His son has access to neither of them. In desperation, his son bought himself a crappy $800 beater just to get himself to and from work. Lesson learned, I hope. I applaud Don for sticking to his guns and teaching his kid not to be an entitled asshole at an early age Source
A Toys R Us Fiasco
I was in a Toys R Us in the 90s. This mother and daughter who had to be around 12 were shopping. The girl asks 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 the mother/daughter are behind me. The mother not only got the toy she wanted but actually apologized Source
Working Like The Rest Of Us
A friend of mine is married to a very very rich man. Old coal money or something, no one in the family has to work they all just live off of investments. Anyway she was crying one day because her MIL was threatening to cut her husbands allowance and he might have to GASP get a job Source
Out With The Old
Went to school with a girl who got a 2012 bmw and literally cried and cussed out her parents because she didn’t get a 2015 Source
Well That Escalated Quickly
Similar thing happened in my school. A guy got a BMW and wanted a lambo so he set fire to his house Source
I was on my high school’s newspaper staff and we always did a section on cars in the parking lot, where we highlighted one “shitty” car and one super nice car and then interviewed both owners. Everyone loved it (and don’t worry, the shitty car owners were always super excited to be a part of it and they always had the best stories.)
So we pick Snobette Snootyson cuz she’s got a niceass brand new Range Rover or something, and after I’m the last to call “not it” I’m forced to interview her.
What’s your favorite feature of the car?
“Well one time I forgot to put it in park and it stared rolling away, but it didn’t roll that fast so probably that. Or my G-Eazy bumper sticker.”
Got any funny stories about your car?
“Yeah! When my parents first got me it, I was making faces at my friend and turned left when it wasn’t an arrow and totaled it. So they got me the same one again!”
I managed to sneak into the article: “Snootyson has managed to keep her car undamaged since October.” (It was January) Source
A Weekend In London
When I was 15 I was dating this girl that I met at a coffee shop downtown. Her parents were LOADED. Like home movie theater, wine cellar, live in maid loaded.
The girl got a brand new Lexus for her 16th birthday. It took her 4 times to pass her driving test. A week later she totals the car so they buy her another one.
Her parents also flew her from California to London to go school clothes shopping Source
Living In A Different World
I’m from a rich area in Dallas, TX so I’ve seen some shit. 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 (again, 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 Source
That’s One Spoiled Pup
My friends dog. He used to barbecue a steak for the dog once or twice a week. Apparently the dog didn’t like it pan fried Source
