    'Why Don't I Call Her Right Now?'

    Posted by u/not_todaysatan:

    I used to work at a pony camp that catered to rich kids from a very nice neighborhood. We would have really spoiled kids all the time. While annoying, the most frustrating part is trying to maintain authority just so the little [tykes] don’t get themselves killed by 1,000-pound animals.

    Anyways, we had a 10-year-old kid from some mildly famous sportscaster one week. Kid was just downright awful. She ignored everything we told her and was mean to the other kids in camp. At one point, she started a physical fight with another girl, and when she felt like she was getting beaten, she started yelling, “Do you know who my mom is? I’m going to tell her!” The other kid got scared and started crying.

    My coworker replied, “Actually, I do know your mom, and I know she wouldn’t like to hear about this. Why don’t I call her right now?”

    Little brat didn’t believe her, so my coworker did. She was much easier to deal with the rest of the week.

      Belt Up

      Posted by u/churtothechur:

      I worked as a outdoor camp instructor. One week I was on logistics and had to drive the van to pick up kids. I had heard from my friend that one of the kids in his group was a little [jerk], back chatting, lazy, bullying other kids. When I got to the pick up point, the kids hopped into the van and my mate in shotgun.

      My mate Mitch gave me the rundown of the kid. As I started the van up, I did a visual check of seatbelts and everyone was good, except for the kid. I asked, he said no. I told him I can't leave until he puts it on. So he did, and I started to leave. A minute down the road, I heard him unclip his seat belt again, so I had to stop the van and ask him again. He put it back on. This happened one more time. On the third time, I just pulled over, turned the van off. Radioed base and asked for my manager, and the overseeing teacher who was his dean to come up and pick this kid up because he was a danger to the others in the van.

      That's when this kid started pleading and begging. Told him no. I already made the call. He got sent home. My mate Mitch had one of his best weeks after this kid left.

        'Dad Will Take Care Of It'

        Posted by u/sarcasm_hurts:

        Freshman year of college - the guy across the hall from me is a spoiled rich kid from a big southern city. Old money. A couple weeks into the second semester, he and a buddy found a checkbook on the sidewalk. Stupid [jerks] decided to write themselves a check and cash it at the bank that the account is in. The teller immediately called the cops, and they both got arrested.

        We talked the night he got arrested, and he laughed and said his dad would "take care of it" and everything would be fine.

        That weekend we met his dad as they moved everything out of the dorms since he got expelled. Guess Daddy didn't take care of it.

          Never Tease A Porcupine

          Posted by u/urbanek2525:

          Boy Scout camp out in Utah (when Boy Scouts were pretty much run by the Mormon Church). A porcupine walked through our camp, and this spoiled, rich kid got a stick and chased it up a tree. We all told him to stop. He wouldn't listen. Scout leaders were off doing God knows what at the time.

          So this porcupine is up the tree, and now the spoiled weenie wants to shoot hard candy at it with his wrist rocket. He can't get a clear shot so he climbs up the tree and sits on a branch under the porcupine. Shoots a hard candy at the porcupine and hits it, hard.

          It was right then that he learned that when a treed porcupine feels threatened, it just lets go and lets the quills break the fall. The giant porcupine fell right onto the spoiled kid's shoulder, bounced off, hit his thigh, and then landed on the ground.
