The Entitlement Generation and “WTF?! I Wanted an IPhone!!!”

A comedy writer, John Hendren, retweeted a bunch of tweets from teenagers complaining about not getting an IPhone, IPad, etc. for Christmas. The song is hilarious, but it also saddens me because it reminds me of one of the things I hate most about Christmas. Namely, when we put so much emphasis on getting gifts for Christmas, our children become petty snobs when they don’t get what they want. The song is also indicative of the much maligned and discussed “entitlement generation,” in which our youth feel entitled to what they want regardless of whether they deserve it or not.

Here’s the song. If you happen to be one of those who are easily offended by cursing, I suggest you don’t click on it.
