Many people like perks. No, not like that. Many people enjoy being entitled, or at least just feeling entitled. Even if they do not have any slightest reason to feel a bit better than others at something, they will just come up with a reason.
This happens especially often, for example, in the service sector, where people who for some reason feel "entitled" help themselves to much more than the boundaries of decency allow. Sometimes one look at a person is enough to understand that they are entitled as hell.
And sometimes it's not. So Reddit users shared their stories about how they had to interact with these categories of entitled people, and how to recognize them easily. The thread came out very popular with almost 2K upvotes and more than 2.3K various comments. Bored Panda has created an incredibly entitled curated list for you with a selection of the most interesting stories from this thread.
So feel free to scroll down, leave your comments - and just try to never be like the heroes of these "entitled-persons-and-where-to-find-them" stories.

#5 People Using The Phrase "It's Just A Child!" To Excuse Their Child's Bad BehaviorPeople use the phrase "It's just a child!" to excuse their child's s***ty behavior. When the zoo says "Don't tap the glass, it stresses the animal" that means your f**kball child needs to knock it off.

#18 Incessant Whining Over Shared InconveniencesIncessant whining over shared inconveniences. For example, person goes to the DMV to find a 90 minute wait. Everyone else that arrived around the same time as them is also having to wait 90 minutes. But this person just. Won’t. Shut. Up about it. Like dude, we get it. It sucks. Literally no one is enjoying this experience. You’re not entitled to any faster service than anyone else, and bitching about it isn’t going to change that.

#21 Treating Gas Station Workers BadlyI'm a gas station worker and when people don't say please or thank you, when they're on the phone(mostly when they're VERY loud). When they walk in, dont even look at you, practically throw the money at you and say "20 on pump 5" and walk out.
OH! And when there's only one person there, we have to close our store for lunch. We have a very polite worded sign on the door. I'll be walking with my food to the back and they try and bang on the door, put their arms up like "what the f**k?? You're not going to serve me??"
And there's literally another gas station kitty corner to us.
Edit to clarify: where I'm from(Sacramento, California) you pay at the pump with card and pump gas yourself. I'm not stopping most people from getting gas by taking my lunch(ONLY thing that stops people from getting gas is if they're paying with cash, but most people don't. There's no discount at my store by paying with cash rather than card)
The only thing they can't get is cigarettes, beer and snacks. But as I stated, there is another gas station right across the street.
I am also entitled to a lunch, just as every other worker in America.

#31 Telling "My Taxes Pay Your Salary" To CopsWhen I was a cop in the 90s I heard, "my taxes pay your salary" to which I would reply, "my taxes do as well"
#32 Blocking Public Transport While Parking Their Own CarsI went to private school for all of high school. It was even further divided by wealth because it was an American school in a foreign country, so most of the kids from there were very wealthy, did coke on Tuesday nights, and would buy their way into Harvard. The rest of the kids were pretty much all from military families who had the price of education covered. I used to take the city bus home from school (it was out in the suburbs). One day this mom in her shiny convertible car and 200 dollar jeans parks her car where it is completely blocking the road and goes to pick up her kid. When the bus drives up, it can’t get by. Bus driver honks for a couple minutes, but the mom is no where in sight. When she finally comes out, she’s not even bothered by the fact that she’s been blocking traffic for 10 minutes. She just takes her sweet time getting in her car with her kid and finally drives off.
Still makes me mad to this day.
