ME, ME, ME! The arrogant air of entitlement in today's society.



I've been watching a bit of tv of late, Housewives of Jersey, and the one thing I've really noticed is the arrogant air of entitlement.

Every second person believes they are entitled to whatever they want.

If you win lotto, they believe they're entitled to it.

If they give you a scratchie for your birthday, if you win, they believe they're entitled to some.

If you become a celebrity they believe they're entitled to ride on your coat tails.

If you get a new house, they believe they're entitled to just come on over.

If you get a new car, they believe they're entitled to drive it.

If you dare to mention what you think of something on social media, they believe they're entitled to call you every name under the sun, plus racist, sexist, fat shamer, weight shamer, hater, troll, bully, etc, while they're actually doing all of that to you, because they can't discuss a subject like normal people, they have to attack you just for having your opinion.

Now we all know my view on Gen Ys and how many have been raised to be entitled, but I have seen many a Gen X and some Boomers of the same entitlement lately. And it's incredibly suffocating and makes me want to punch a few people in the head.

We currently have our version of The Bachelor going on and the girls are in their mid to late twenties, Gen Y, and the amount of insecurity, immaturity and entitlement going on is disgusting. They all believe they're entitled to attack if you get more attention, entitled to call you names, entitled to bitch and whinge about you.

Some older people think that because they're older it entitles them to push ahead in lines, not follow rules and generally be as big a pain in the bum as Gen Ys. It seems rules are not meant to be followed any more, it's just all about doing what you want to do and to hell with everyone else.

Well I say a big fat NO!

You are NOT entitled to my stuff, to use it, abuse it or wear it.

You are NOT entitled to my money if I win any, or my home if I get one, or my car if I buy one.

You are NOT entitled to borrow my things, copy me, act like me, or try to be me.

And most importantly, you are NOT entitled to treat me like shit and walk all over me just because YOU are a bitch and don't agree with me! I don't care if you don't agree with me, but I will smack the crap our of you if you attack me for it.

Have you guys seen this crap going on?

Last week's phrases got me to thinking about making my bed and having no regrets.

After talking about potty mouths and toilet humour last week it got me to thinking about other phrases that we use, and actually, how wrong they are.

Take "you've made your bed, now lie in it".

The way I see it, you don't have to lie in it, you just have to deal with it, and in dealing with it you can fling back the covers and go and buy another bed. You don't have to live your whole life in that bed, get rid of it, change the sheets and linen, and change who you share it with. You do not have to stick with a decision that has proven itself to be wrong.

CHANGE IT!

The other thing that people say is "don't have regrets".

How can we not have regrets? There is stupid shit I did in my teens that I still feel that twang over, my head hangs and shakes side to side at the stupidity of my choice, and I'm like, ugh, why did I do that?

I think it's a good indicator of how things work. By regretting a choice you can learn to not make the same one. By feeling those feelings you remember how it felt so you won't continue making the same stupid choice.

There is no possible way that there is a person on this planet that does not have regrets, even just one. Or is it just that at their age (it always seems to be older people who say this phrase) they don't remember the feelings they had over the regret, so they no longer have it?

I don't know, but it seems to me these days that phrases just don't cut the mustard any more and don't mean what they once did because I can debate and argue a phrase to death.

Have you guys come across a phrase that no longer seems to work in the current environment of being human?

Potty mouths, toilet humour and a couple of songs lyrics poking fun at celebrites

While writing up my song lyrics a few weeks back I, for some reason, starting laughing at the term potty mouth.

Seriously, who calls it a potty? A potty is for toddlers to learn to sit on to do a “number 2”. Bahahaha. What it should be called for adults is what adults call it, toilet.

Toilet mouth!

I know it doesn’t sound as “polite”, lol, but it’s probably not meant to in the first place. Potty is just a weird word to use for swearing and toilet is used for “toilet humour” which is also a ridiculous phrase.

But I kept laughing because with the way my brain works it kept going and rolling the conversation I was having with myself on, and it went from calling it potty mouth to toilet mouth and then came 'because when it backs, up shit comes out'.

Which is true, isn’t it, lol. So that’s a new phrase for me.

'Toilet mouth. Because when it backs up, shit comes out.'

Bahahahaha!

Below are two sets of song lyrics I wrote about celebrities (I'm no Eminem) way back in 1992 and 1993, still slightly relevant, especially OVEREXPOSED and a certain family that are never out of the rag mags. I've uploaded these two plus last weeks to my new Pinterest board, so feel free to share.
