Curious Cat Question

I don't understand why people-- when faced with a possible confrontation with someone they don't know, say in a raised voice-- "Hindi mo ba ako kilala?" (Translated: Don't you know who I am?) I thought at first that it's a Filipino thing but really, it encompasses race, nationality and gender.

It does make me wonder though: why am I supposed to know you? Are you on Facebook or something? (Not that I'm on it.) Did you send me a link that I completely forgot to say 'yes' to? And really, why should I even care who the fuck you are to begin with? Trust me, the world won't stop spinning if it doesn't know you exist.

In the end, I think it's a stupid question to ask. But maybe it's because I prefer to commit violence and illicit activities anonymously. After all, why tell everyone who you are before or after you've done something particularly stupid, right? That's why they're called witnesses.
