    who does she think

    Hi,

    Who does she think she's fooling?

    Is this sentence normally pronounced by someone who has been fooled (by her in this case)?

    Thanks

    Re: who does she think

    No, in my experience, it's said by someone who has not been been fooled at all.

    A: What a pretty purse!
    Woman: Thank you. I got it for my birthday last week. I turned 40.
    B: Well happy belated birthday.
    {woman walks away}
    A: Just turned 40? Who does she think she's fooling.
    B: No kidding. She's 50 if she's a day. (Meaning: She is at least 50)

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Didn't you mean "has not been fooled at all"?
