Every time I encounter someone who’s a fantastically rich dickhead, an Abe Lincoln quote pops into my head. It states “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.” No, I don’t think ol’ Honest Abe was referring to rich people being asshats when he said that, but you can see how it might translate.
With that in mind, the good people of Reddit decided to share the worst cases of ‘Rich Kid Syndrome’ they’ve encountered, and it’s nothing short of blood-boiling. Stick around until the last few captions, it’ll be worth it.
“Girl in my high school physics class offering her brand new iPhone to be destroyed in an experiment because ‘my dad will just buy me a new one’. She had it for like 1 week.”
“Hey guys please help? Which car should I get, I want a lot but daddy will only buy me one.” That was posted yesterday on Facebook.”
“A kid in my graduating high school class was very wealthy. His parents bought him a Land Rover when he was 16 and he crashed it into a school bus. “They bought him another Land Rover and he lost it street racing. Guess what? They bought him a Mercedes.”
“Dude would stand in a club and rip up bills of 10 euro yelling ‘this is nothing to me!’. Okay, how about just giving away beer instead of antagonizing anyone in sight.”
