It is interesting if you translate “你以为你是谁啊?”directly.
I don't know whether there is such a statement in English,probably not.
So just for fun to translate it.
Follow your own course, and let people talk.

It may be the same meaning wtth "none of your business" sometime.
I think "你以为你是谁啊" can also be used in other situations,such as when you feel someone doesn't have the ability to fulfil their ambitions.

不一定吧?
我觉得至少有两种情况可以这么说:
1. 觉得自己很了不起, 离了他/她地球就转不起来的人.
2. 明明自己不行, 非得说行, 打肿脸充胖子.

I did say it can be used in other situations...I agree with you except your "不一定吧":)
