Thought this was nice... ^__^  
I received this in an email from my mom's boyfriend this afternoon:

On America FM 100.7 (A local radio station) was doing one of their "Is anyone listening" bits this morning. This first one was, "Ever have a celebrity pull the "Do you know who I am' routine?" A woman called in and said that a few years back, while visiting her cattle rancher uncle in Billings, MT., they had occasion to go to dinner at a restaurant that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45 minutes. Lots of other rancher types and their spouses were already waiting.

In comes Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. They want a table. The hostess says they'll have to wait about 45 minutes. Jane Fonda asks the hostess if she knows who she is. "Yes, but you'll still have to wait 45 minutes."

Then Jane says, "Is the manager in?" The manager comes out, "May I help you?" Do you know who I am?" ask both Jane and Ted. "Yes, but these folks have all been waiting already and I can't put you in ahead of them."

Then Ted asks to speak to the owner The owner comes out. Jane again asks, "Do you know who I am?" The owner says, "Yes, I do. Do you know who I am? I am the owner of this restaurant and a Vietnam Veteran. Not only will you not get a table ahead of all of my friends and neighbors here, but you also will not be eating in my restaurant tonight or any other night. Good bye."


That was nice.. I wish more things operated like that-- where fame can't get you everything. Like, oh... for example, the JUSTICE system?!?! It's not very just, is it? *coughs and looks at O.J. and that-stupid-preacher-who-ran-over-that-kid-but-got-off*
Current Mood: happy

You know what you should do, is go into a restraunt that serves nothing but celebrities and proceed to say this:

"Do you know who I am?! I'm not a superstar! Which, in a room full of celebrities, makes me unique, and therefore very special! MWAHAHAH! SEAT ME, BITCH!"

Haha, that happened to me once, I used to work in a Hollywood Video, and Jason Mewes(aka Jay of Jay and Silent Bob) came in with some lady to rent movies. I asked him for his membership card and he didn't have it, so we are supposed to ask for a license then for proof of ID. He was all like, "Don't you know who I am?" I said, "Yeah, and I still need to see your license." Hehe, it was funny to put him in his place. Kevin Smith is so much nicer than Jay. ^_^ And the way Jay talks in the movies is exactly the way he talks in real life too. o.o He's weird...

That. Is. INCREDIBLY. Awesome.

People who think they're all high and mighty just because they're famous pisses me off x_x

Way to go to that restaurant and its staff and owner!
