It’s easy to spend money when it isn’t yours
All this talk about entitled brats, and the proliferation of shows like “Princess” (love!) got me thinking about how brats can feel perfectly fine with that kind of behaviour.
Mooching off their parents well into their 40s.
Feeling like an office job is ‘not their thing’, and they just don’t want to do it.
Frankly, it all boils down to the fact that it is easy to spend money when it isn’t yours.
Gold diggers have this mentality too (they sure work hard to get it though, with all that tweezing, buffing and squeezing into tight outfits), and if you don’t feel the pain of paying for something, you get used to having it.
This goes along the lines with why people go into debt for consumer purchases.
It’s mostly because they don’t see that debt as THEIR money.
They see it as the bank’s money.
Being given to them to spend on whatever they want.
With only a small string of a 30% interest rate attached.
No big deal.
Listen, if they had money saved from blood, sweat and tears, and then were told to spend it frivolously,they’d think twice.
It’s probably also why they’re cheap, selfish and don’t want to be generous either — it’s too painful to give when they’re used to taking.
