Entitled to the Robot

Once upon a time in the small town of Harmonyville, I was a young boy named Josh. (My name is still Josh, as luck would have it!) My parents, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson, were hardworking individuals who instilled the values of honesty and integrity in me from a young age. However, as I grew , I developed a sense of entitlement that would shape my future in unexpected ways.

One day, while walking through the town’s bustling market, I laid my eyes on the most magnificent toy I had ever seen – a state-of-the-art robot that could do all sorts of incredible things. The desire to possess it overwhelmed me, and a mischievous idea sparked in my mind.

Being me, with my growing sense of entitlement, I decided to manipulate my parents into buying me the coveted toy. I knew I couldn’t simply ask for it, so I strategically pulled the “entitlement card” on my unsuspecting parents.

I started dropping hints about how I deserved the best things in life and how having the latest and greatest toy was my right. I used my words to make my parents feel guilty for not providing me with what I believed I was entitled to. Slowly but surely, I wore them down until they finally caved in and bought me the coveted robot.

As the years passed, I climbed the corporate ladder, achieving success in my career but losing touch with the values my parents had tried to instill in me. One day, as I reflected on my life, I stumbled upon the dusty old robot in the corner of my office. Memories of that fateful day flooded back, and I felt a pang of regret.

Realizing the error of my ways, I decided to reconnect with my roots and make amends. I reached out to my parents, apologized for my past behavior, and expressed gratitude for the values they had taught me. I also decided to use my success to give back to the community, establishing initiatives to help those less entitled, and here I am today, CEO of Bank of Entitlement!

The moral of the story is that entitlement may provide short-term gains, but true fulfillment and happiness come from humility, gratitude, and genuine connections with others. I learned that the path to success should be built on a foundation of integrity, kindness, and a willingness to contribute positively to the world. In the end, I found a more meaningful and fulfilling life by letting go of entitlement and embracing the values that truly mattered. Nonetheless, Bank of Entitlement is here for you, my entitled followers.
