Do people feel so entitled that they can take a selfie anywhere they please even if they damage historical monuments?  Just yesterday in Italy a German tourist damaged a famous fountain in Florence.  The damage in dollars is Five thousand  four hundred fifty. That was foolish.  There has also been damage at the Coliseum in Rome by people doing selfies. This attitude that these individuals are far more important that history is appalling.  Their inflated egos that they can do whatever they want for a picture of themselves is unbelievable.  I have also seen people take a selfie off the edge of a mountain and fall to their demise. This obsession of taking pictures of oneself seems to have blown out of control.  In the previous times people wouldn’t dream of this.  They would have been called egomaniacs. Of course, now everything is different.  The technology has overtaken the lives of the younger generation.  The family member that I have written about that is getting a divorce has a wife who puts her pictures on Facebook, Instagram and other social on a daily basis. She is using these forms of media to show off with her friends, how much she is suffering and her plans to start a new life.  It’s not going to help her in court. The continual barrage of data to our brains also includes a role of entitlement.  A friend of my daughter’s posted the other day about her visit to a grocery.  She did not take a small basket and her hands were full of items. When she reached the self checkout, she took a twenty dollar bill out of her purse.  She accidentally dropped it and a woman picked it up.  She said since she collected the money it was hers.  My daughter’s friend was livid.  She followed her out to the car park after making her purchase.  When she saw the woman at her vehicle she was having trouble opening her car,  the girl quietly switched parcels and kept on walking.  When she arrived home she had three porterhouse steaks, Atlantic salmon and many other expensive foods.  It sure was worth that twenty dollars. How do you feel about the selfie craze? The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
