    Next to “id” in the dictionary, there is a picture of Calvin.

    You may not like the special treatment you’re going to get, Calvin! ;)

    And 20+ years later, wasn’t Calvin’s Father prescient?

    Definitely of the modern, and liberal, generation.

    Yet another product of the “Spock” generation.

    If exoticdoc2 and bluskies read the yesterday’s strip, they would know his parents do not let him get away expecting “special treatment.”
    If they read Sunday’s strip, they would know that his father fancies himself something of a radical.

    @Eyjafjallajokull

    It works if those around you are conditioned to give you what you want so as to stop your whining…. If
    they aren’t, you may have a problem.

    Reminds me of one of my in-laws. She refused to work outside the home even after her children were in middle/high school, bemoaned her financial situation and lousy marriage, and her family excused her situation by saying she had low self-esteem. Know how you can get some self-esteem AND improve your financial situation? By having a job!

    Yup, there it is….a Gen Xer in the making. That’s what happens when you tell kids that everyone is special. They grow up thinking you mean “you are a special case, deserving special treatment—Just because you’re YOU!”

    Those kids of the late 80s and 90s are the grownups now. That explains a lot.

    Calvin grew up with that exact philosophy of life and look where we are now.

    Congratulations, Calvin…….you could be six or twenty-six.

    And if you were to have read any of the strips, you would know that these are fictional people with no thoughts of their own. And whose words and depicted actions reflect the whim of their creator.
