1. How tall are you? I'm 5' almost 1'

2. I read somewhere that its offensive to ask people who don't want kids why they don't want kids? Would you find that offensive? I wouldn't because like, most people do want kids so since what you want isn't the 'default' then its perfectly expected for people to ask. I do want kids, just substituting my feelings for other things that people do do, that I don't or don't want to.

3. And I don't want to start any fights with this one but its been bothering me a lot lately. Do you think that people in general feel way too entitled to things? Cause I do. I feel like we all think we're entitled to these wonderful things and maybe we are but people also act like because they think they're entitled, that these things should just happen to them and they don't have to put any real work in. Which frustrates me because my personal view is that most of the time you reap what you sow, and if you don't sow anything, you're not gonna get anything back and you shouldn't because you literally did no work whatsoever.

I just meet a lot of people who are like waiting for their lives to start going their way but they just sit around and do nothing and then get angry and bemoan the universe for not giving them their 'due'. Which I find ridiculous.

ETA: I felt like clarifying. All people feel entitled to some things, that's natural. Sometimes we're right to feel entitled to those things (stuff like clean air and water and affordable food and all that) and sometimes we're wrong (expecting people to drive us to work or class all the time without ever really asking or showing our appreciation, which is a personal example of me being a buttface). What I am talking about though, is people who feel entitled to things that the majority of us need to go out and get or work really hard for (obviously some people don't need to work hard but that's a different story). Things like a lover or a good paying job that also makes us happy or happiness in general or being a master at a skill. People who expect these amazing things to just fall into their lap with little to not effort on their part. To the point where they won't put effort in to get those things because they expect them to just happen, despite having not done anything. And then when those things don't happen, they get upset because they were supposedly entitled to whatever, when really they weren't entitled to anything they didn't make some effort for.
