An unbelievable exchange between two women in Judge Judy’s courtroom is making its rounds on YouTube.
The plaintiff was seeking the repayment of what she claimed was a $2,000 loan to a friend.
Nothing new or unusual there. What has liberty-minded individuals disgusted is the mindset of the “friend” who won’t pay it back.
During questioning, the defendant, who claims the loan was a gift, says she feels entitled to keep the money.
Why? Because, according to her, her friend is “floating in dough.”
Judge Judy sarcastically asked when the defendant declared herself “a partner” in the “dough” that was earned by the plaintiff and her husband. “That’s what’s wrong with our country,” Judge Judy said.
The judged asked why the defendant thinks it’s her “business” what her friend earns.
“It’s not my business, but she had the money to give me,” the thick-skulled defendant insisted.
The defendant appeared completely justified in keeping the cash because her generous friend drives a “BMW,” has “her house cleaned,” and “only has two kids” compared to the defendant’s five children.
The hubris the defendant displayed is testimony to the growing sickness of class envy, greed, entitlement, and laziness that has enraptured a large portion of the U.S. population under the political ruse of “fairness.”
While it’s gratifying to watch Judge Judy lay into the entitled woman – before she mistakenly confesses the payment was indeed a loan, oops – there aren’t enough Judge Judys to go around and wake up the growing number of people seduced by the age-old empty promise of free stuff.
It might be too late before the entitled among us discover the cliché is true … nothing is free. And your successful friend, neighbor, or boss don’t owe you a thing just because they’re rich.
