Some difficulties

I despise people telling me that I am from the entitled generation.  I most certainly do not believe that I am entitled to anything.  I had an extreme difficult childhood.  I had one parent growing up and numerous younger siblings of whom I was in charge of raising while our mother went out with her friends, partied, occasionally worked, but mostly lived off of survivor benefits.  Growing up, I felt that appreciation for life was hopeless and that I would never be able to achieve my dreams. This negative feeling was mainly driven by the reality that I was basically saddled with raising our siblings with very little help from our mother.  During my teenage years while in high school, I realized that I needed a college education so I wouldn’t turn out like our mother.  I worked hard all through high school, college and nursing school.  I am currently in a position that enables me to move out of my mother’s house mainly because my youngest sibling will be leaving for college in the fall.  I make good money at the local hospital I work at on the labor and delivery floor.  I have viewed more than eight apartments that are all at the low range of budget, but so far none of them include air conditioner and I want an apartment with an A/C.  I have been insulted by three bizarre proprietors for turning down their apartments just because there was no air conditioner included.  One of them even called myself an entitled brat.  I am not entitled.  I am looking for my first apartment and I had to work struggling to get to where I am.  I don’t comprehend why it’s a concern if I pass on an apartment just because of the lack of A/C.
