This quote is said to Character A who is trying to relate or suddenly realizes what Character B has to deal with from time after time.

A variant of this is "Does (Character B) feel like this ''all the time?''", said after Character A behaved in a way they strongly associate with Character B.

This has nothing to do with with literally being taken into someone else's world, or about a character using this line to boast that they have power over someone else.

Usually played for laughs, but can be used seriously when a character realises that another only appears to be a bastard because of their frequent necessary evils.

[[folder:Literature]]
* In ''Discworld/{{Thud}}'' Vimes manages to work out that the Vampire he was sort of but not really forced to employ was [[spoiler: a spy for Rhys Rhysson, Low King of the Dwarves]] in a time of almost sort of war. After utilising this to his advantage and noting that this means that no one will ever be able to tell him who he can and can't employ again he muses if this is how Lord Vetinari feels all the time.
** Moist von Lipwig has a similar feeling near the end of ''Discworld/GoingPostal'', after successfully manipulating his enemies.
* This is Martya's tart response when Miles wonders why genes should trump competence in ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga A Civil Campaign]]''. As a girl she's essentially property under Barayaran law.
* The main male protagonists and female protagonists in the WheelOfTime have these with each other rather frequently.

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** A character from the AlternateUniverse tells the Doctor "This is our world, not yours. And you're going to listen for once," humbling the normally hubristic Doctor.
** In another episode, Rose has been given superpowers from the Time Vortex. She tells the Doctor that she can see the past, present, and future. The Doctor replies: "That's what I see! All the time! And doesn't it drive you mad?"
** A variation in another episode, ''The End Of The World'', it's Rose's first travel with the Doctor. After she almost gets killed, the Doctor asks "You've seen how dangerous my world can be".
** Rory actually used the trope name in 'The Rebel Flesh.' Apparently referring to [[TheyKilledKenny his multiple deaths]] thus far.
* In ''Series/StargateSG1'', Carter says this to O'Neill after he is treated to her father's unique brand of humour-in-the-face-of-death. More amusing is that this comment could apply to her relationship with her father or to her relationship with O'Neill himself, who is well known for his sometimes irritating humour.
* In ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'', when Cox is forced to sack a junior cafeteria employee, Kelso tells him, "Welcome to my world. And now try going home to my wife."
* A variant is used in an episode of ''Series/{{Bones}}''. Cam is annoyed at having to deal with the rest of the team squabbling immaturely, and wonders aloud if this is how kindergarten teachers feel all the time.
* Done in an episode of ''Series/{{Monk}}'' where Captain Stottlemeyer's wife was badly injured in a car accident and he was afraid she would die. Monk tells him, "What you're feeling right now, that fear? That's how I feel all the time."
* ''LoisAndClark'': In "Soul Mates", it's revealed that, in at least two past lives, Clark also had a dual identity. When the Tempus from one of them learned of this, he was shocked that he let [[ClarkKenting a mask]] deceive him. Lois told him to join the club.
* ''Series/TheXFiles'', same sentiment expressed differently: In "Humbug", circumstances force Scully to offer a completely outlandish explanation of an event if she's to report accurately, and she's met with disbelief. Mulder comments "Now you know how I feel".
* Used a few times in BuffyTheVampireSlayer. When Buffy and Cordelia (who has been mistaken for Faith) are hunted in Slayerfest '98, Buufy uses this line.
** Also played straight at the end of season 4, when Buffy presents a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to the head of the Initiative. She tells them that this is her world and they are the intruders, not the other way around.
* Used a few times in ''Series/MythBusters'' whenever a member of the Build Team other than [[ButtMonkey Tory]] has to undergo suffering of some kind to test a myth.

* ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' has used this gag several times.
** When Elan repeatedly fails to grasp that Miko may have the title of "samurai", but does not have points in any Samurai class, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0209.html Roy describes the experience as like being outside his own life looking in]].
** When the other five Order members repeatedly rebuff Vaarsuvius' attempts to explain the nature of Blackwing the Raven, including his presence throughout many earlier plotlines which the others somehow did not notice, [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0674.html Blackwing says that now that V knows his pain, the healing can begin]].
* In ''Webcomic/GirlGenius'', when Gilgamesh Wulfenbach [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20080305 comes to the realization]] that he and his father are not so different after all.
* Ash, the GenderBender protagonist of ''Webcomic/{{Misfile}}'' frequently gets this from his/her best friend Emily whenever she comes up against a DoubleStandard or is forced to confront some discomforting or disconcerting aspect of girlhood. But unlike a lot of other examples Emily is usually sympathetic about it.

[[folder:Western Animation]]

'''Grampa Simpson:''' Ehh, welcome to my world!
* Nicely done in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' pilot when Bruce invokes the trope after hiring Terry to be his assistant. Terry's mother thinks it's welcoming Terry to the world of big business and all that Bruce Wayne represents. Terry and Bruce (and the viewer) both know it holds more meaning than that.
* [[{{Superman}} Kell-Ell]] says those exact same words upon introducing the ''WesternAnimation/{{Legion Of Super Heroes}}'' to his war-torn future at the beginning of Season 2 in the AnimatedSeries.
* Candace in ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' typically says this whenever somebody loses their vehicle conveniently filled with evidence of Phineas and Ferb's big ideas or is flabergasted about what happened to them.
