This is a question Spoilt Brats

Mr Newton sighs, "ever known anyone so spoilt you would love to strangle? I lived with a Paris Hilton-a-like who complained about everything, stomped her feet and whinged till she got her way. There was a happy ending though: she had to drop out of uni due to becoming pregnant after a one night stand..."

Who's the spoiltest person you've met? Has karma come to bite them yet? Or did you in fact end up strangling them? Uncle B3ta (and the serious crimes squad) wants to know.

and he comes into work every day!
I work in a pub, not a family pub, not a pub that does meals, not a pub that does handy colouring in packs for the little folk, not a pub where the cherubim are welcome before 9pm.
It's a boozer. there is a lounge, it has carpet, there's a bar, it has lino, a pool table, a gambling machine, a jukebox full of obscurity, a manky yard, smoking for the use of, and thats it.
So why, when the lovely oldish bloke regular picks up where he left off with his ex wifey, does said wifey bring her obnoxious brat in with her?
She'll get herself 2 or 3 pints, get the child a lime and soda, go and smoke in the yard, and then ignore him. No matter what he does! We used to have a good early doors crowd loads of ordinary working people used to come and decompress with a pint and a game of pool, until the brat and it's parent started coming in.

She gets pissed and ignores him, whilst he runs amok in the pub, yells and shouts over people's conversations, orders me to turn up the jukebox loud enough to drown out peoples conversations (I turned it back down again and he whined and whined at his Mum until she told him to "Fuckin well shuddup". I actually had to shout at him when he tried to pull someone's chair out from under them because they didn't want to play pool with him. He also comes into the pub complaining that 18 year olds have beaten him up... There's not a mark on him, and all of the 18 year olds round here are either in the nearest big town getting pissed or in this pub, ditto.. It's the yelling and constant attention seeking that really wind me up. It's not that I haven't got children (single parent, 2 kids, 1 at Uni, one at FE college, Ithankyew)or that I don't like them. I just cannot be having with this one and his attitude, although two things have stopped me just slinging him and his drunken slattern of a parent out.

1) It really isn't his fault, it's down to parenting, so it's hers...

2) the poor sod's name. I won't give it here, I may get the sack, but it's the same name as one of King Lear's daughters, and a girl out of my mate's year... Yes this loathsome boy HAS A GIRL'S NAME!!!

I really should just get over it, I know...

Apologies for length, and for getting bent out of shape over it.. ooo err..

I know
Finally going to have a word with the bosses on Monday, it has only been for the last two weeks, so I'd need to see the figures to be certain...
rather than just be driven mad!!

Regan? As in Jack Regan of The Sweeney.
The parents probably think it's a macho name.
(, Sat 11 Oct 2008, 9:26, closed)
never thought of it as a girls name before
... As I have only heard it in association with a bloke, Regan King, NZ rugby player who plays for Llanelli Scarlets. Hard bugger too, for a back.

Some of you aren't wrong...
Sorry Smashmonkey, The others are right.. I think it has to do with the Sweeney, as I very very much doubt they'd know about rugby, I think I met Mr King at my other job..oddly...

Goneril would've made a better story...;-)
