I have had extensive ongoing experience with this stuff all my life.
In my 20's while working as a sales girl, 2 tough looking chicks approached me and starting giving me # right away.
They starting saying things like "How did you like it when you got back to your car Bitch?"
"Didn't you think we'd find out?"..."You think you can just screw him and no one would find out?"
I was dumbfounded and said what the hell are you talking about?
Then they got in my face and called me by some other chick's name.
I said it's not my name.
They said "Oh come on we see you all the time,stop playing games" and mentioned some bar name that I supposedly hung at all the time....
I had never been to that bar in my life
They were there to beat me up or rather beat up my lookalike I guess...(THANKS EVIL TWIN)
I even had to show them my drivers license to get them to believe me.
It took some time to cool them down and explain to them I truly was not this girl.
They left after apologizing, muttering something about "Damn,she looks just like her"
Another time period during my life, in my late 20's-30's ..
I was a popular locally well known bartender with a large following of "regulars">drink patrons who came to see me and hang.
Every once in a while I'd get jokes about "Hey, saw you at the football game with your new boyfriend, going pretty hot and heavy there weren't ya
OR ..."What are you stuck up now ? I waved to you at the racetrack, what's up with that ?".....They'd swear it was me and were sometimes quite
I hate sports and wouldn't be caught dead in football stadium,was faithfully married and never been to the racetrack EVER.
So, great now this chick with my face is a big slut and apparently really gets around all over the place!!!!
My own boss came in one day shocked and said "I saw her, she looks exactly like you."
Few years later a bar patron came in and said "Hey I didn't know you had a kid ?" and said they saw me holding a baby at some public event
somewhere.....I'd just nod and smile..having given up on trying to explain.
By now it was standing joke that I had this lookalike and it was kind of fascinating and cool how I got to keep up with my lookalike's life as it
The best of all was the day my own sister came in with a weird look on her face and said "WOW" "We just pulled up next to
"you "at the traffic light and "you" turned and looked right at me. I would swear it was you."...
THE KICKER ???
"SHE WAS DRIVING THE EXACT SAME MODEL SILVER CAR AS I DROVE" !!!!!!
I also was interviewing for a job one day and the interviewer keep looking at me strangely as she checked out my resume.
I finally ask if there was something wrong and she said "I'm sorry but you look just like my niece"
I asked if she drove a silver car and did she just have baby recently.
She freaked and said a slow, very bewildered "YES"...I smiled
So Yeah, you guessed it I didn't get hired ..too spooky I guess
I never have seen my look alike even though everyone else apparently has.
I sometimes wonder how she is and if she heard about me all her life too.
