Entitlement is truly one of the wildest human traits. We're all stuck on this spinning globe together, and yet some people truly believe they're owed other people's time and resources simply for existing.

Obviously, we all unintentionally fall into patterns of self-absorption now and again, it's part and parcel of surviving. But there's a distinct line between having an off day and approaching your peers as if they're your personal servants.

Reddit user Fandangoo is unfortunate enough to work with one of these entitled souls, and felt it their internet duty to share receipts of a particularly absurd interaction.


It all started with the coworker inquiring about Fandangoo's dinner plans, and from there it quickly escalated.

Apropos of nothing, the coworker barreled into the conversation with the full expectation that Fandangoo would change their meal plans in order to accommodate her cravings.

Luckily, Fandangoo had zero qualms about calling out the bonkers level of entitlement, and refused to be manipulated into doing free favors. This did not sit well with the coworker who quickly transformed into tantrum mode, even going so far as to call Fandangoo names.

The interaction was perfectly capped off by the spoiled coworker instructing Fandangoo to not speak to her when she got into work, which was certainly no loss for them.

Sometimes the best way to deal with a grumpy entitled coworker is to throw their behavior back in their face, and call it a day.

True

If the past year has taught us nothing else, it's that sending love out into the world through selfless acts of kindness can have a positive ripple effect on people and communities. People all over the United States seemed to have gotten the message — 71% of those surveyed by the World Giving Index helped a stranger in need in 2020. A nonprofit survey found 90% helped others by running errands, calling, texting and sending care packages. Many people needed a boost last year in one way or another and obliging good neighbors heeded the call over and over again — and continue to make a positive impact through their actions in this new year.

Upworthy and P&G Good Everyday wanted to help keep kindness going strong, so they partnered up to create the Lead with Love Fund. The fund awards do-gooders in communities around the country with grants to help them continue on with their unique missions. Hundreds of nominations came pouring in and five winners were selected based on three criteria: the impact of action, uniqueness, and "Upworthy-ness" of their story.

Here's a look at the five winners:

Edith Ornelas, co-creator of Mariposas Collective in Memphis, Tenn.

Edith Ornelas has a deep-rooted connection to the asylum-seeking immigrant families she brings food and supplies to families in Memphis, Tenn. She was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and immigrated to the United States when she was 7 years old with her parents and sister. Edith grew up in Chicago, then moved to Memphis in 2016, where she quickly realized how few community programs existed for immigrants. Two years later, she helped create Mariposas Collective, which initially aimed to help families who had just been released from detention centers and were seeking asylum. The collective started out small but has since grown to approximately 400 volunteers.
