Why do people think because they are poor they are entitled to stuff?

Working the food pantry and clothes closet yesterday just made me wonder.


People complaining we didn't have shorts, we only had pants.  Moms bitching because we didn't give jelly with peanut butter and bread.  Jerkfaces cussing at grandmas because they didn't give them as much food as they wanted.  Poor trash complaining because we gave store brand mac and cheese and baked beans.


When did the poor become so entitled?  Being poor doesn't mean you get anything.   Be thankful.

It just isn't the poor, it is this entire generation.

 All I ever thought I deserved when I was poor was a better plan on how to get out....which is probably why I'm not poor anymore!

Such is the reason why they are poor. They think they are entitled to have things without working for them.

I have seen and heard of this before. When I was working, we would volunteer for clothing drives for before school. You would not believe how many parents came in, to tables FULL of neatly folded, clean, gently used clothes and complain that they weren't name brand. Or that they didn't have tags.
I am not saying that they shouldn't be picky of what their kids look like, but, if you're having to go to a charity drive for school supplies, you'd think they would repress some of those words and be a little thankful.
There were more people there who were plenty happy, but I was honestly surprised at a lot of the comments:/

It's all in how they were raised IMO. If they don't have to work for it, then they don't understand it's value, so they don't appreciate the charity. This isn't all poor people, just the kind you are describing.

Its not people's fault that they are poor.  I get tired of people driving mercedes thinking they're better than everyone.  

Sweden helps their the poor the most and their the happiest people on the planet.
