Miley Cyrus to burger guy: don’t you know who I am?

Disney's 2nd Annual Concert For Hope

Miley Cyrus has quite the big ego wrapped up in a small package. According to the New York Post, Miley had a classic “Do you know who I am?” moment recently. And it wasn’t when someone refused to do what she wanted or give her the best table in a packed restaurant. She and a friend stopped by a burger joint in midtown Manhattan and placed an order. The guy taking her order had the NERVE to ask her name (so he could put it on her food). That’s when Miley freaked.

Miley Cyrus is famous, but there are still some people out there who’ve never heard of “Hannah Montana.” When Cyrus and a friend came into the Pop Burger on East 58th Street and ordered, the counter manager asked for her name to mark the order. She snapped back, “Are you serious? You don’t recognize me? I’m Miley Cyrus.” The counterman still had no clue who she was, ran her credit card with her name on it and shrugged, “That’s nice for you. Here is your order. Have a good day.”

A teeny tiny part of me has a hard time believing this story, but not because of Miley freaking out and pulling a diva trip. I just can’t imagine any New Yorker having the customer service skills to respond as hysterically politely as that manager did. I am absolutely going to Pop Burger in the next few days, because it sounds like they have unparalleled service.

Miley recently “bragged” about how she’s good at blending in and not being spotted. She said she likes to explore new cities and whatnot. So I guess this would have been okay if Miley was in disguise. But don’t you dare not know who she is when she wants you to recognize her. Seriously, unless you have or know a tween or teen (or write for an entertainment blog), it’s totally reasonable not to know who Miley Cyrus is. Even I tried to remain oblivious for as long as I could. And many days, I still wish I didn’t know who Miley Cyrus is.

“That’s nice for you.” Best passive-aggressive comeback ever.

    I kinda wish I didn’t know who she was. Her obnoxiousness seems to be growing exponentially.

  2. MeMyself says:

    I can’t stand it when people use this line..no matter who they are.
    Get over yourself!

  3. Laura says:

    Salma Hayek did the same thing to a hostess when she didn’t have a table ready for her except she also added cursing her out in Spanish. All celebs do this. Miley is not exempt.

  4. TaylorB says:

    I probably wouldn’t recognize her if she was standing on my foot, though I might recognize the dulcet tones of her 40 year old barfly, chain smoking voice.

  5. nAynAy says:

    I completely agree with both Lucy2 and MeMyself. I hate when people use that line, as if, that makes her better than everyone else. NOT!! Miley is completely obnoxious and really, really, dumb. Matter a fact, her whole family irriates me.

  6. Firestarter says:

    I think if I were a celeb, I would go out of my way to NOT be recognized!

  7. QB says:

    I thought the reason celebs liked Manhattan was because people did not cared who they were?

    But Really who Miley Cyrus is? That wasn’t even her birth name ? Being one of disneys marionette is not something to brag about.

    I’m pretty sure that the manager haves more important people to recognize then Miley.

    PS: I’m ashame that I even know this about her.

  8. Obvious says:

    I recently used that line just to see what would happen. Sometimes people actually assume they should know you and bend over backwards. it was quite hysterical. Free dinner for me!

  9. kelbear says:

    I agree with Lucy, I kinda wish I didnt know who she was either.

  10. Kevin says:

    TaylorB,,,extra points to you for working dulcet into your post. You are a true wordsmith. BRAVO!

  11. Cinderella says:

    This is why I LOVE New Yorkers! They just do not waste time with arrogant hicks.

  12. vale says:

    Yea this guy must be a REAL new yorker, utterly unimpressed with celebrities. Well maybe with someone say like Robert DeNiro, but certainly not Miley Cyrus.

  13. anna says:

    That is a TOTAL NYC reaction: ” I don’t care.”

  14. Corina says:

    I’m pretty sure that as soon as anyone uses the phrase “don’t you know who I am?” they instantly jump the shark into an ocean of douchiness. Although Miley was probably already there, come to think of it…

  15. Sylvia says:

    She is an obnoxious little twit.

  16. ligeia says:

    she’s looking thinner/more defined in this picture. looks like she’s losing the baby fat. britney 2.0 in the makin’ ya’ll…

  17. Sumodo says:

    Yo, Cinderella! Right back atcha! Miley “Beyotch” Cyrus must be in town to ride on a float in the Macy’s Parade, and lip sync to the adoring crowd. Wholesome? My foot! I have to add “That’s nice for you!” to my vocab.

  18. Emily says:

    @Obvious, oh, I want to try that now! Where did you use it?

  19. gossip_ho says:

    LOL…that’s hilarious!!! Miley/Hannah get over yourself

  20. Vermithrax says:

    Pfff… lame. I don’t believe it for a second.

  21. GatsbyGal says:

    HAHAHAHA, this story is awesome. I hope it made her upset for the rest of the day and that she went home and cried into her pillow because she isn’t universally beloved.

    I hope that someday I’m put in a position to put Miley in her place like that.

  22. Kat says:

    Dear Miley. Please die already.

    Dear NYC. You rock.

  23. ViktoryGin says:

    A deal with Disney is the most effective way to fade into oblivion past age 16.

    And she shall go the way of those that preceded her…

    HIlary Duff, Raven Symone, Miley Cyrus…RIP

  24. raincoaster says:

    Actually, when you think about it, it ISN’T nice for her. How would you like to wake up and realize you were Miley Cyrus?

  25. liz :) says:

    I don’t like her
    well at least was has been reported
    on her lately
    but now this
    seriously!
    not even celine dion or beyonce
    would do that
    & I compare her to them because
    they are singers and famous
    but miley
    you are not that famous yet
    & if you want to be
    stop saying “don’t you know who I am?” line because your fame will fade
    just like your father’s.

  26. BamaGuy says:

    People like Miley Cyrus, that have no humility and are arrogant and self-proud will have a lot of misery and sadness in later life when their careers and fame dwindle – if they do not self-destruct and destroy themselves first. What kind of a rude bitch is she that she believes all the world knows her by sight. She is disgusting.

  27. sylenthika says:

    who cares who miley virus is anyway?

  28. Josephhhhhh says:

    Are you serious? What as she got- some of her hill billy straw stuck up her butt?
    If I was the burger guy, after I gave her her food, I would have said “Oh btw you forgot your drink.” SPLASH!
    I think after that, I’d pe surprised if people didnt know me too, haha :D
