When a person is spoiled, they're damaged by having been given everything they want. Spoiled people are usually pretty rotten. Spoiled milk smells terrible and tastes even worse. This adjective comes from the verb spoil, meaning "ruin" or "destroy"; the idea was that giving in to a child's every whim would ruin him.
