"Do you know who I am?"

A question which often comes from an exasperated individual, who believes they are entitled to VIP treatment everywhere they go.

Occasionally, these people are indeed household names whom most everyone would likely recognize.

More often than not, however, people might need some reminding as to how or why said individual should be recognized.

Each and every time, though, the arrogant question is never justified, and is often greeted with an appropriate response.

Redditor brotherbrother99 was eager to know the best clap backs to this notorious question, leading them to ask:

"What is the best response to "'Do you know who I am?'"

That's starting to get old.

"I bet you use that line a lot."- michaelochurch.

Right back atcha!


"I AM!"- itskavia.

Need a reminder?

"Did you forget?"- Virtue-Killer-2.

You tell me.

"No, who do you think you are?"- Random_puns.

I'll have to ask someone else.

“'Hey Brian, I’ve got a guy here who doesn’t know who he is!'"

"'Do you know who he might be?'”- llovejoy1234.

I'll take a guess

"Ronnie Pickering."- Shadow_0852.

I'm getting a sense...

"I know who you think you are."- automoth.

I'll help you figure it out.

"My husband was working in construction."

"A guy came onto the job site giving the workers a hard time about something or other."

"When he started yelling at my husband for whatever, my husband basically ignored him."

"The guy goes, 'do you know who I am?'”

"My husband yelled across the site to his foreman, 'Joe! Call an ambulance, this guy doesn’t know who he is!'”- Littlepaintbrush0814.


"Yes, and I've been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty."- ShadyMyLady.

Rightfully put in their place.

"There is the old joke about the British Prime Minister eating out during the war time and asking for extra butter with his bread, the waiter refused to which the PM, rather annoyed, asked "'do you know who I am?'"

"To which the waiter replied, 'yes, I do, but rather importantly you have forgot who I am, I am the man who responsible for the rations of the butter'."- ScholarImpossible121


Of course, when people do dare to ask "do you know who I am", they never realize that the people they ask this immediately discover the answer.

Which is someone absolutely no one wants to be around.

Remember the Dreamcast? If you don't, then you've been missing out. Sit down, sweet summer child, and listen up.

The Dreamcast was a console so ahead of its time that console has been a Dreamcast since there was a Dreamcast. Too advanced to match its competitors, not appealing enough to be considered part of the next generation. I have fond memories of that console. Crazy Taxi was a gem.

Not everything comes out at the right time. We heard about a few other examples after Redditor rentinghappiness asked the online community,

"In your opinion, what’s something that flopped because it was way ahead of its time?"

Consumers who have money to burn often buy things they don't really need, like travel accessories, specialized sports equipment for an activity they've only done once, or even cookbooks, when plenty of recipes can be found online.

You know, try as I might, I just can't bring myself to bother with The Walking Dead. I quit the show some years ago, probably around the time of that weird fakeout with Glen in the dumpster (and then his actual death right after that), but the truth is that the show was getting on my nerves for some time before that.

Did anyone actually care about all the nonsense going on with Deanna and the citizens of Alexandria? And can we go back a bit further and talk about how ludicrous Beth's death at the hands of some power-tripping officer in a hospital ward was? There was such a noticeable drop in quality after the third season that I questioned why I kept tuning in.

But this show is far from the only one to make people want to throw their remotes at their television screens. People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor regian24 asked the online community,

"What TV show was amazing at first but became unwatchable for you later on?"

People Break Down Which Professions Hollywood Gets Completely Wrong

More often than not, what gets us to keep tuning in to our favorite TV shows, or drawn to certain movies, is to get a glimpse into various professions which fascinate us, but which we wouldn't ever want to work ourselves.

Needless to say, there aren't many people who find the Indiana Jones films to be a remotely accurate depiction of archaeology, or that the Jurassic Park films show what paleontology is really like.

But many people tend to watch iconic procedurals like Grey's Anatomy and Law & Order under the notion that they both give an accurate depiction of the medical field and the legal world.

Only, how accurate are they?

Redditor Just_Surround_2108 was curious to learn which professions have been documented on screen without as much research as one might expect, leading them to ask:

"What profession does Hollywood get completely wrong in films and TV?"
