Stop being so arrogant.

There are narcissists everywhere. Some of them are so arrogant that they think they can ask for anything they want and give you the feeling as if they could fly.

Say “Who do you think you are?” in Chinese: 你咋不上天呢? (nǐ zǎ bù shàng tiān ne) = Who do you think you are?

 (zǎ): why
上天: (shàng tiān): fly to the sky
