Useful tip!

On how to deal with journalists who do the "Do you know who I am?" and are obviously not well-known enough. Recently, the proprietor of a popular eatery in South Delhi was confronted by a big, aggressive woman who asked for something which seemed implausible. We do not know what exactly, but what followed was rather interesting, when challenged by the "Do you know who I am?" line and various threats, the gentleman sourced the number of her (incidentally former, since the woman was 'let go' recently) boss and made a call/sent a text and did that with the #2 boss as well.
One must applaud this guy for doing what he did! If you piss someone off (usually this is because something - a meeting or an exclusive was promised and there were 'delivery issues') then yes, you (PR chap, yada yada) get a shellacking. But when an unusual favour is asked, then well, you have all the right in the world to escalte the issue.

Was it a foodie restaurant critic type triple cubed person, perchance?

Was triple cubed person let go recently? Sigh - where shall we get our bad puns now?

Does this mean the end of triple cubed free meal and was the initial fight because she refused to pay the bill as is her wont! You should name her also dude, otherwise non-journo's (actually non-Delhi journo's) have a clue who the fat bitch is.

Wait a minute - she doesn't pay her bills and she doesn't expense them to her newspaper either? So much for a reviewer's integrity.

And ahem, is she really such a bitch?

Maybe it is the lady burdened with carrying two surnames...
