One of my favorite types of people are those who are in complete denial. They spend so much time convincing themselves and those around them that they are successful that they never put the time into actually being successful.
They constantly tell people on social media how they are doing certain things, but they aren’t. They always have something in the works that never pans out. They never answer direct questions about things because it would cause them to actually have to come to terms with themselves and realize that they have to actually put in some work to make something happen.
On the same note, we’ve all had grades we either 1. didn’t agree with or 2. received and were embarrassed because we knew we could have done better.
If it’s 2, then the normal reaction is to place the blame on yourself and move forward, getting better to get a better grade.
If you have severe entitlement issues, you’ll put the blame on someone else because you, in your twisted mind, can’t comprehend how you could actually FAIL something.
The C+ that (Megan) Thode was given scuttled her dream of becoming a licensed professional counselor and was part of an effort to force her out of the graduate degree program she was pursuing, said her lawyer, Richard J. Orloski, whose lawsuit seeks $1.3 million in damages.
Thode, the daughter of Lehigh finance professor Stephen Thode, was attending the Bethlehem school tuition-free in 2009 when she received the poor mark in her fieldwork class. But instead of working to address her failings, she “lawyered up” and demanded a better grade, Hamburg said.
“She has to get through the program. She has to meet the academic standards,” Hamburg said.
Thode, 27, of Nazareth, was enrolled in the College of Education in her second and final year of a master’s in counseling and human services. She needed a B to take the next course of her field work requirement. SOURCE: The Morning Call
You really need to read the entire article to get the depth and breadth of how impossibly insane this all is.
Thode is basically saying that the teacher conspired to give her a C+ and ruin her dreams because of some internship disagreement and, oh, also because Thode was a champion of gay rights or something.
Now, normally, I’d say that this is the result of our fun and new entitled society that has come about because we refuse to let children fail. We always want them to get a ribbon or a trophy instead of letting them go through the proper coping process of what happens after a true “loss.”
However, this woman is 27 or older now. She was going to Lehigh tuition FREE. She was given jobs at Lehigh due to her dad’s professor job.
So, no, she’s not entitled. She’s probably just super crazy. This is so much nonsense that it really lends me to believe she may have some sort of psychological issue.
And, guys, you never make out with crazy. Remember that.
