Some people have such big egos that they don't understand how much being selfish and putting themself first puts everyone else down. They can't understand why someone wouldn't want to bend over backwards to help them do something because they think everyone will like what they have done. They also don't think they do anything wrong.. and instead of thinking like a normal person when a conflict happens "I wonder what I did or said to make someone feel that way, I hope I didn't offend him or cause any harm" they think "What a loser, that person is offending me and I'm perfect." This is the problem with their egos. When people apologize to them, they think it is well deserved and even though they might pretend to be sorry they aren't because they think they are perfect and better than everyone else, so when someone crosses them they are always annoyed (whether secretly or outwardly), instead of ashamed or wondering if they really did do something wrong (like a normal person). Sometimes they'll act ashamed or sorry that someone did something to them.. but really they are just mad that someone had the nerve to cross their perfect self, like "how dare they"
In places like high school these people might win. But when they get older they just get more and more inwardly angry because people don't see them as up and rising and don't try to be friends with them... they are just rude to everyone and no one is good enough for them, including their spouses. They often walk around hot and bothered all the time when people don't give them what they want. And there poor kids aren't in a stable situation in the long run because this parent, especially if it's a mom, will put their needs in front of their kids when it comes down to it. It's never fun to live with a person like this in the long run.
