“Do I look like a freakin’ people person?”

"Do I look like a (freaking/fucking) people person?” is a jocular statement that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts, bumper stickers and posters. The saying is popular with employees who are tired of being asked to solve everyone’s problems.

“Do I look like a freakin’ people person?” has been cited in print since at least 1999 and is of unknown authorship.

The Red Sox wasted a superb start from Josh Beckett. He wore a red T-shirt with the question, “Do I look like a people person?” in the Red Sox clubhouse on Thursday. There was an expletive included to amplify Beckett’s message. His message to the world was to steer away from him. And that was the day before Beckett pitched.
