    Red face What are you a teacher or something?

    These are the lines I heard from a movie: "What was that all about? Playing the hero by protecting some (dim with its/his) {I couldn't catch this one, please give me some suggestions!} thugs? What are you a teacher or something?"
    I'd like to ask whether the last question means "What? Are you a teacher or something?" or "What are you? A teacher or something?".
    Thanks very much.
    Please notify me of any mistakes in my posts. It is much appreciated.

    Re: What are you a teacher or something?

    A​nd the final part would probably be your second suggestion: "What are you? A teacher or something?" However, your first written version is not impossible.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
