I'm sure you're fine in terms of how well adjusted you are. I was pretty entitled until I graduated college last May, so its not even that long ago. I mean sure there was a gradual time of me becoming less entitled (because I lived off-campus and paid my own bills for junior and senior years and paying your own bills made me at least feel a lot less entitled) but it really comes as a shock of just how much you aren't entitled to that you think you are once you have to start making a living for yourself and pay your own bills.

I don't know how old you are but I do expect people to act pretty entitled until you've really had to take care of yourself. Its annoying, especially how I deal with middle schoolers everyday and they're a bunch of entitled little twits, but I can't exactly blame them for being that way. Its frustrating but you can't blame someone for being a certain way when they've never experienced something that makes everybody else not that way. They just gotta grow up and learn eventually. It happens to us all.

But I meet a lot of people who really should know better than to feel half as entitled as they do but they just don't.

Anyway I wouldn't worry about it, being aware of feeling entitled to certain things is, after all, the first step to realizing that you probably shouldn't feel that way.
