Entitled Folks with Their Outlandish Demands

Every day it becomes more apparent that some folks live in a fantasy land where they can just flout the conventions of decency and demand free stuff. Entitled people with their absurd audacity will expect people to work for them for free, try to abuse the trust of strangers, and throw tantrums when they don't get what they want. There's no good way to deal with entitled people and their laughable boldness.

Half Brothers Get Greedy, Threaten To Sue, Costs Them 158K

What we have here is a tale as old as time itself. Some half brothers get obnoxiously greedy, fly too close to the sun, and pretty much melt their wings off to the tune of $158K. If they'd have simply been reasonable human beings and offered some sliver of understanding in regards to the circumstances of the inheritance that was so graciously left behind, they might've actually gotten their share of the money. But alas, they took the different, ill advised route.

This person gets someone to housesit and feed their pets for a week, then they turn around and make up a bunch of charges for the person? Sounds like the cartoonish demands of an entitled person.
