5. Perfect description of a spoiled brat. He's placed himself in the spotlight, all smug and mighty,

and full of himself. Time to get the trash picked up, and carried out. With him on the very top of the heap.

8. Actually I

read somewhere ( maybe the KC Star) a woman who used to babysit him when he was young called him just that-a spoiled brat-and it seemed that he had never heard the word NO. I think he needs another babysitter 🙂.
