"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.

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"

People Dispel Common Hoaxes Some Folks Still Believe

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
