The very title of this trope is wrong. "Entitled" means that someone is given a title, authority or rightful ownership of something. Some people however use it as if it meant the opposite, "someone is claiming to deserve something, although he doesn't". Like here.

I would bring this to TRS, but it's full as usual.

Yeah, it confuses me too. "Entitled" means that he deserves the treatment s/he is getting. E.g. you are entitled to get the tar beaten out of you if you are a criminal.
