A group of Redditors are telling their worst "affluenza" stories, and the results are rich with rage-inducing humor. The term is now synonymous with (but actually pre-dates) a very rich Texas teen named Ethan Couch who used "affluenza" (the fact that he has no sense of consequences from being spoiled so badly) as a successful court defense after he killed four people while drunk driving. These examples of wealthy people being pretentious and condescending might make you angry, but they'll also make you laugh—because good lord, these people are clueless like whoa.
