Since this is some kind of indicator i had tons of cabbage patch dolls and even now i didnt realize that they were a big deal. Its not like they are $100 american girl dolls. Anyway my uncle worked in toy sales and so i got one every year for xmas and my bday.

I hate the word entitlement
Me too! Especially when people mean SELF-entitlement. We should respect other people's entitlements. They are entitled to them.

And on another tangential note: Someone said my daughter looked like a cabbage patch doll. I had never seen one before and assumed it was a compliment. Then I googled them when I read this thread and now I am steaming with fury.
