comment “is it me, or…” meaning and usage
@Martin Beckett, No, it's more than just stating how you feel, in a way it's used to ask subtly whoever you with whether they too are hot/cold.

comment “is it me, or…” meaning and usage
I often hear the phrase 'Is it me or is it cold/hot in here?' which is used when somebody is concerned whether their body temperature is normal, or everbody else is experiencing the same thing.
