Which of these 2 examples do you feel is an example of entitlement?

A. A man who has had a good job that he spent years in college racking up loans and years working hard for. He also has a wife who stays at home to take care of their 2 children. The wife never went to college and does not have the skill set or experience to have a career. He get's laid off from his job. He runs out of unemployment and has to take a huge paycut which means she needs to work too. Even after downsizing their life they can't make it so she goes back to school. In the meantime they have to be on welfare to cover their needs. She also gets grants to help pay for college.

B. A man who has never had to work in life because his parents have tons of money. The husband worked hard starting his own company. His wife sat at home getting drunk all day screwing up their children. The eldest son starts working for the company expecting to take over when his father retires. Where his father put in a helping hand wherever it is needed, the son tells people everything isn't his job. He runs aroubd bossing around people who have been there building up the company from the beginning. He shows up late, calls out all the time, and takes 2 hour lunch breaks. The company is having trouble because even though they have the government contracts they need. There is no money coming in until they get the green light to move on the projects. Hos wife got pissed when he said they would have to cut back on their 5 vacations she takes first class at the nicest hotels. Instead she forces him to lay off employees.
