Spoiled Brattiness: Not Just for Childhood Anymore
I was going to write about Victoria's Secret giving away stuffed doggies with their lingerie, and how creepy that sounded to me.  I know I'll probably offend someone with this, but if you're old enough to be having sex and wearing lingerie, the allure of a cuddly stuffed animal shouldn't be swaying your purchasing decisions.

Then, I went to their website and became disturbed by the word prezzies.  It's not as bad as I originally thought (it's British slang), but it still invoked images of a grown (physically) woman pouting at her boyfriend or (poor, poor man) husband and whining, "Did you bring me a prezzie?"   Then, falling into a full-blown temper tantrum if the answer is "no."

Still, I am disturbed by the general trend of glorifying immaturity and decided to write about it today.  I Googled the term "spoThe image “http://extremecostumes.com/hb874hr.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.iled" because it's a law or something that all blog posting activities must involve the use of Google, so I got it out of the way immediately.

Apparently, only children are spoiled -- at least according to the internet gods.  Yes, people over-indulge and under-discipline their children.   That's been going on since time immemorial.  I have seen them up-close and personal.  When it comes to children, however, I sense that they want someone to stop them, and they act more and more outrageously in the sometimes vain hope that someone will care enough about them to say "no."  Otherwise, they feel like they're in a swimming pool sinking deeper and deeper and never hitting bottom.

I have less empathy for adults in that situation.  And we all know they're out there.  Yet other than this website, no one seems to notice the toll extravagance extracts from our society.

As usual, a bratty starlet steps up to illustrate the danger of overindulged "adults":

"I hate my judge," Spears declared to Bret. "He is so mean. Just an old fart. He told me I was being catty with him, but he was being catty with me and paid me no respect at all."

Her verdict?

"His job is to sit there and tell people what to do," Spears said. "And that's just so sad, because he gets off on it."

Um, Brit?  They call judges "Your honor" for a reason -- you're supposed to show THEM respect, not the other way around.  Did you notice she was in the Neiman Marcus dressing room at the time?

I suppose calling people out on their extravagance is bad for business, so it's not gonna happen outside of church, and who listens to what church has to say anymore?

Our country is going to the dogs because indulgence is revered and sacrifice is either scorned or reserved for "someone else" to undertake.  Even if children are as "spoiled" and "bratty" as people say, at least they aren't making policy or personal decisions that are gambling away our future and negatively impacting our world right now.
