You'll eat the paella and you'll LIKE it!

Has anyone seen this commercial?

I don't know about you, but it infuriates me.

I don't know if I want to smack the bratty kid with a ridiculous sense of entitlement or the doormat mother who is spending all this time in the kitchen only to order a pizza to feed her unappreciative son.

Perhaps I want to smack them both.

Are people really like this? Seriously? I don't have teenagers yet... but when I do you can be sure I won't be ordering them a pizza because they refuse to eat something I've made them for dinner. Especially when they fully admit they don't even know what it is.

That kind of attitude would most likely warrant me snatching that cell phone back from them and telling them they'd better find a way to pay for their own food and cell phone or learn to show a little appreciation and respect.

Thank you! This commercial drives me crazy. I don't let my kids 5 and under get away with it, so no way on earth would I let a teenager get away with it.

Wow. I have NOT seen this commercial, but feel the same way. Eat it and like it, punk! Or keep quiet and make yourself a PBJ after dinner with the family.

I've seen it and thought the same thing you did. I have 2 teens and it does NOT work like that in my household!
