Generation Entitled: Woman sues her high school for life’s failures

David MenziesMission Specialist

I’m thinking about suing the Ryerson School of Journalism. By this stage in my career, I thought I’d be a senior correspondent with Fox News. Since I’m not, I think Ryerson owes me an apology — and a cheque.

I’ve been inspired by Tiffany Peters who recently filed a lawsuit against her former high school, blaming it for kyboshing her dreams of becoming a dancer and an actress.

It used to be, those experiencing “the agony of defeat” would chalk it up to "stuff happening."

But for Generation Entitled, there’s always gotta be somebody to blame and somebody has to pay.

Fortunately, Tiffany experienced the agony of defeat in the courtroom but incredibly, she's contemplating an appeal.

Obviously the judge is to blame for her courtroom failure.

Cameron Robock – the only delusion is that there is a moral imperative between left or right at the power structure level. Partisan-based moral supremacy is a myth that is propagated by both (self proclaimed) sides to politically exploit arrogant narcissists and borderline personality disorder types into accepting self-destructive public polices makes them superior to their peers – the Canadian slag-America arrogance is a direct result of this.

USA. They all delusional in some form. Just like conservatives in Canada.

This poor delusional woman is clearly living in a dream world if she thinks she can sue a school for lack of personal success in her own life.

I say suck it up. Dust yourself off and apply yourself. Maybe you shall achieve something. When life knocks you down you have a responsibility to yourself and your self respect to pick yourself up.

This women need to sit down and make herself a life plan. What she wishes to achieve in life and then write down the baby step task analysis as to how she shall achieve it. By setting small realistic goals, achievable goals that can be measured she will see she is in control of her own destiny.

Education provides you tools with which to achieve your goals. It does not promise success. Success is up to the individual. Remember, I believe it was Thomas Edison that discovered 101 ways of how not to make a light bulb before he was successful.
Failure is only a disaster if you do not learn from the mistakes.

I think the way in which educators got it wrong is when they provide children with this false sense of specialness. They did this through giving everyone an award instead of making it a competition.

Guess what children? You may be special to your mother & father, but you are no more special than anyone else. Suck it up and get used to it!

In real life we compete. If we apply ourselves and work very hard we may get lucky and succeed. Success never comes easily. It takes a lifetime. When you fail you can only blame yourself.

I know it is an injustice and insult to female canines , but what other word can you use to describe someone like this Princess.

If she would have stuck it out at drama class, she could have been our new entitled PM.
Instead we got JT.
Look at what he accomplished by being a part time drama queen … whoops – teacher.

Post -secondary institutions should be sued for offering programs that have few if any employment opportunities and not disclosing that fact.

I need some money to cut down the trees that are dying from the draught….do you think I could sue my HS?
Let’s see…that was only 46 years ago; I don’t think the school is there or any of the teachers are still alive, and I can’t remember what it was that I really wanted to be, but, hey, maybe I can come up with something.
Or maybe I should try one of these freebie ads that are showing up on TheRebel website…freeloaders who don’t want to pay for their advertising

A dancer and an actress? Artists of any stripe, with extremely rare exceptions, have day jobs. Or they starve. Reality bites, eh?
commented 2016-08-20 20:18:38 -0400
A dancer And and actress. She definitely had high hopes. Perhaps ,the theatre could not afford the cost of beefing up the structure supporting the stage --for when she starts ’thundering ’ around.

While I do believe the education system needs a shake up, this lawsuit is the dumb way to do it.

So now we know why she flamed out at Canada’s Got Talent and didn’t make the Canadian Olympic team. She was brimming with talent (and incredible looks, I bet) that she would have been the Canadian Kardashian.

Its the self-entitled generation. Years ago a survey of US high schools showed that a majority of students believed that fame and fortune would just fall in their laps. All they needed was sports or being an entertainer. Without training or skill, they would succeed.

I remember while at work at a major university overhearing three students discussing how one of them failed badly. The other two told him that he paid to be at that school so he was entitled to an “A”. The suggestion was to go back to the prof and demand the grade he so richly deserved – or else. He agreed with them. Great job skill – being a thug.

Time to move to the wildress, set up a prospector tent, and live off the land as the world continues to consistently spiral out of control into insanity🤔

Wait, if you graduated from Ryerson in 1984, how did you hope to become a senior correspondent on Fox News, which didn’t exist until 1996, a full 12 years later?

(Yes, I know it’s a joke, I just like nitpicking inconsequential anachronisms.)

I think I’ll sue society in general because I never got to fulfill my dream of living in a sane, intellectually honest culture, free from the insane ambitions of developmentally impaired sociopaths passing as social justice. -

Sounds like a total waste of skin, Probably an entitled liberal or NDP no doubt. Ill bet she got a ribbon every time she did something, no losers only winners. Schools do not prepare kids for life anymore they indoctrinate them to be good little SJW warriors. So basically useless and helpless.

This reminds me of a case I heard about 20 odd years ago. An American, whose parents were intelligent, attractive and successful, sued them because he was stupid, ugly and unsuccessful. The judge dismissed the case. At least there is still some sense in American and Canadian courtrooms….

Personally, I think that most of our schools the schools should be sued for the horrible job they’ve done of preparing students for life. The last couple of generations of school graduates should launch the biggest class action suit in history and sue their former schools for failing to educate them. When high school graduates:
- do not know when WW II was fought or who the key participants (countries and leaders) were
- think that the Titanic was one of the ships on Columbus’ first voyage
- can’t multiply by 2 or make change without a calculator or computer
- etc. etc.
then something is clearly wrong with our schools.

Tiffany you’re song and dance routine sucks. Go back to being an occupier, all you have to do is sit and complain and you seem to be very good at that

And she got the money to pursue this action from…?

Contingency deal with a lawyer who has nothing better to do.

So sad for Tiffany. She likely would have cashed in had she gone whining to the ON Human Rights Commission.
commented 2016-08-20 10:31:37 -0400
I encourage her to watch fight club a couple of times. Especially the scene where Tyler explains that we aren’t going to be movie and rock stars and that were pissed off. She should be fined for tying up the courts but I suppose I’m dreaming.

How many of these nuts are hatched ever day?

Yup. Sounds typical of todays’ wimpy socialists. Run to your safe space, Tiffany, and cry!

A now very typical Canadian response to difficulties in life.

Blame someone or something else.

And the rest of us pay.

I wonder what the government spend in defeating this typical entitled Canadian claim?
