Embarrassing moments


I inadvertently posted my experience about being mistaken for someone else in my reply to Jeff’s post, so, today I’m going to repeat what I said. 🙂

It’s car show season and while we were at one today, a man from across the way looked straight at me and bee-lined for me with a strange expression on his face. When he got to me, in my face exactly, he said, “Oh. I thought you were someone else. You look like her” and he left without another word. I just laughed and went on my way. You know what “they” say about each of us having a double somewhere in this world. LOL!
There might be other times I’ve been mistaken for someone else, I’m not sure. I know I’m always mistaking my bf for someone else when he suddenly vacates my side while I’m not looking and someone else shows up. Of course, my attention is on something else and I start talking to the stranger like they’re him. Embarrassing. 🙂

    I think we all have dopplegangers out there. I’ve have people on several occasions ask me if I’m related to so-an-so, that I look just like her.

    I’m fascinated by the notion of dopplegangers. I’ve even started a couple of stories which deal with aspects of that notion


  3. LOL, I’m really bad about, if I’m engrossed in something, not noticing that the person next to me moved on and someone else took their place. I’ve had entire one sided conversations with strangers before I looked up and realized they were my mom/son/dad/sister, whom ever else I expected to be there !

    I mentioned it last week I often see people looking like someone I know … like deja vu. errie feeling.

    I’m especially always seeing young men who “look like” my two boys. They’ve been off in the military for years and I’ve always attributed it to how I miss them.
