It’s not exactly shocking that movies and TV shows portray much more dramatic, romantic, and generally idealized versions of reality.
After all, we turn to the screen to take a break from our boring lives, not relive them with 100% accuracy. (How fun would a detective movie be if it were just watching the main character attend sexual harassment training and file paperwork?
But the willing suspension of disbelief aside, there are some TV & Movie tropes that can get under your skin.
Recently, Author Tom Cox took to Twitter, resurfacing the “Hello, I am…” meme.
The meme, which has appeared in a number of threads since 2019, is pretty simple, it starts with “Hello, I am…” then lets the character speak in the first person about the annoyingly predictable thing about them. (Kind of like when your partner is mocking you in a fight, but in a high-pitched voice like that’s how you actually talk.)
Anyway, the Twitterati have been having fun with this one, so without further ado, here are the funniest and best responses to the thread.
