For those uncomfortable situations when someone apparently important in their little corner of the world starts yelling and carrying on in public, we bring you the Pocket-Portable Self-Referential Personal Personnel Identifier.

Now, when the screaming starts, you can just hold this handy gadget up near the screamer's mouth and it will analyse voice, spittle and (if the screamer should grab hold of it) fingerprints then crossreference them all against as many databases as we can access.

In a short time you may well be able to tell the screamer who they are, if that's what they are after, or tell the police the screamer's identity, if the screamer becomes violent.

And a very happy day to you too, Mr Ibrahim.

       why can't you just say "no"?

       A Paddington-style Hard Stare can be even more effective than saying “no”.

       Because it would be far more fun to have the person identified AND branded a wanker than just to say no to them.   

       Mr Ibrahim was definitely a wanker. I tried everything to reason with him. Seems he's related to some crimelord or sommat. Twat.

       Whether or not one knows the identity of the screamer, one should always claim ignorance. Nothing hurts a diva more than inattention.   

       I have only had one experience of this kind; I was cut up by a mercedes with blacked out windows, pulled up beside it at the lights and banged on the drivers window on order to remonstrate. The window rolled down about 3" and the driver uttered the immortal "do you know who I am?" I responded "no, do you know who I am?" to which the driver responded "no". I said "good", deftly removed the door mirror with a single upward swipe and rode off.   

       I've still no idea who it was. Their ego probably remembers an unprovoked attack, motivated by jealousy.
