You Know Me


One time at work I heard somebody say “You know me” and went on to say something he would do that was complete out of character for that person. The statement “You know me…” is a way to brag without bragging. It is suggesting that you already know how great he/she is.

At work I got plenty of mileage of the “You Know Me” statement. If someone was talking about how some football star came within a yard of making a touchdown I would walk by and say, “You know me – if I was there, you know yourself that touchdown would have been made.”

Or talking about what place did I think I would come in on the Peachtree Road Race (10K): “You know me, probably first or second.”

The reason I just thought of the “You Know Me” is that on the news they were interviewing a group from a neighborhood watch and one woman said, “They (the co-members) know me, they know I’m not one to mess with.” Or something to that effect – planting her reputation before moving a muscle. Anything to boost that ego.
