Radio station America FM 100.7 was doing one of their "Is anyone listening" bits one morning. The first was, "Did you 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, Montana, they went to dinner at a restaurant that did not take reservations. The wait was about 45 minutes. Lots of other rancher types and their spouses were already waiting. In came Ted Turner and Jane Fonda. They wanted a table. The hostess said that they'd have to wait about 45 minutes. Jane Fonda asked the hostess if she knew who she was.

"Yes, but you'll still have to wait 45 minutes."

Then Jane said, "Is the manager in?" The manager came out and said, "May I help you?" "Do you know who I am?" asked 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 asked to speak to the owner. The owner came out. Jane again asked, "Do you know who I am?"

The owner said, "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."
