Phrase uttered by parents and some teenagers who grew up in the late 80s-early 90s when a Spoiled Brat starts to do what he or she does best.
Spoiled Brat- I don't wanna go home! I want to go to Burger King! *proceeds to throw a huge tantrum*
Brat's Mom- Now, sweetie, you know we can't go to Burger King; we're on a budget....
Spoiled Brat- SHUT UP!!!!!!!! I WANT BURGER KING!!!!! *continues to whine and cry and kicks down a display* GIMME BURGER KING!!!!!!
Me- Kids these days....what little brats.
