So many of the things we use every day have components produced with the help of literal child slave labor and these people bitch about their human rights being taken away because a private business asks them to wear a mask for the safety of its employees and other customers.
I had a great aunt who acted just like this. One of the most aggressively passive aggressive people I've known. Would constantly frame everything as a woe or sleight against little old her in order to garner favors and handouts, and get actively nasty towards anyone who didn't go along with it. Like the perfect mix of National Lampoon's Vacation characters Aunt Edna and Cousin Eddy.
One time she came out with my family and I noticed that she showed up with the covers to the bottom of her walker missing. Halfway through lunch, she starts putting on a show that the covers had just gone missing. Rants about how she never would have lost them if we hadn't dragged her out and what was she going to do now?
My dad says we'll go buy her new covers. I speak up that they were missing when we picked her up. Her nastiness went into full offense, how I was an ungrateful kid who was lying just because he was too uncaring to feel sympathy for an old lady and how did my parents raise such a child.
She couldn't just ask for us to help her out. She had to put on a big charade of passive aggressive victimhood backed up by mean spiritedness.
