I once walked up and hugged a totally stranger I thought was my best friend. It was awkward.

@cafelatte:  lol. I hate when I do that!

If it makes you feel better… My mom is an identical twin. This happens to her all the time. She just smiles and waves just like this guy did, knowing its a case of mistaken identity.

Just over Christmas I was mistaken for someone I’m not. Granted, they thought I was my sister, so I understand! And the person who mistook me for her hasn’t seen my sister in-person for YEARS, they went to high school together.

Her:

We were at the Interior Design Show at the convention center. I walked  up to a man and put my arm though his, thinking it was my SO. It wasn`t. Luckily for me he was a man with a sense of humor.

Oh my gosh !!! I did something very similar at my new job, bumped into someone that i beleived was my sisters friend and started chatting with her. Oh you changed your hair and says yes and turns away from me. I try again and say something like I’m “Janes” sister wishing for recognition, nothing. Now this is a girl that I shared a hotel room with at my sisters Vegas wedding.  So I assume she’s being snobby and I carry on with my day. Call my sister at the end of the day asking what her friend “j” does for work now as I am in a totally different field than my sisters and “J’s” and she says she is not sure as “j” is pregnant now. I am totally confused by this ???? then she tells me you know she has has  a twin sister !!!!! omg !!!!! I never knew that !!!! most embarrassing first impression at a new job ever !!!!!

LOL! My dad once went up to a woman he thought was his friend and KISSED her… needless to say, it was not his friend, and she was pretty shocked.

I once went up and poked someone with a calendar I just bought, thinking it was a friend who I planned on meeting in that place, turns out it wasn’t and my friend was a few feet away!

Well, if that was his twin, I am sure that happens all the time. He probably thinks its funny when it does. It could also be he that is embarassed because he thinks he should recognize you but doesn’t! You know when someone comes up to you from your past and you kinda think you remember them but they remember you? Awkward but ultimately funny!
