Remember when we were growing up and our parents taught us manners? Or you wanted to put down a friend or a pest who was acting unbecomingly?
If we "got to big for our britches," or didn't act right, they would tell us, something like, "don't be a spoiled brat," or "don't be a poor loser."
No need for that anymore. One word will suffice for a multitude of pejorative judgments and put downs. "Oh quit being a ---trump." (lower case please.)
Think of all the instances that will fit. Some version of with, "Don't be a..." or "Quit being so.... " Here are a few that come to mind. Other ideas?
- Spoiled brat.
- Poor loser.
- Cry baby.
- Con man.
- Full of yourself.
- Thinking you're entitled.
- Freeloader (not paying your taxes).
