Unwarranted sense of entitlement

One thing about you monkeys that amuses this kitty is your unwarranted sense of entitlement. It doesn’t matter where you are or what country you’re in, it seems that naked monkeys all feel they’re entitled to something other than death and taxes. To whit, this little gem from Australia:

Student: “Yeah, there’s something wrong with my academic transcript.”

Me: “Oh, ok. What’s wrong with it?”

Student: “It’s got fails on it.”

(I start looking up his record on the database.)

Me: “Yeah, I can see the fails. Did you pass those subjects?”

Student: “No.”

Me: “Okay, so you failed the subjects, and now they’re on your record as fails. That’s normally how it works.”

Student: “Well, yeah… but can’t you, like, take them off? It looks bad!”

Me: “…”

Student: “How am I going to get a job?!”

So: This student feels he’s entitled to a transcript free of failure, even though he failed. Because he’s entitled to a job. Just because, well, because.

Of course, the stupid little shit is going to learn some unpleasant truths about life. Or maybe not. Maybe he’ll just cruise along on his natural charm or his family connections, like that venal little shit George W. Bush, and become Prime Minister of Australia some day. It wouldn’t be the first time some fucking asshole moron became ruler of a nation, after all. See:

Fuck you, America!

Fuck you, America!
