I thought I'd give this old thread a bump, it being Halloween and all, the season for relating spooky tales.
There are some great little anecdotes here; I have no difficulty believing they are real, having had several similar experiences myself.
I was in a pub in my early 20's getting some cigarettes from a machine when this group of lads of similar age suddenly started talking to me,
addressing me by my actual name.
Never seen them before, and of course I told them that. The other 'me' turned out to have a different surname, but was otherwise apparently identical
to me in every way. They were completely dumbstruck...as was I.
About the same time, I had a mate and we regularly spotted each other's doppelganger. "What were you doing today going into that hardware shop on
Hastings Road about 11 o'clock?"
"Nope, it wasn't me. I was at home all day." And so on.
Again in the same time frame, I was paying a fine for a motoring offence in instalments. I was very meticulous and paid the due amount at the due
time, so I was stunned when accused of being in arrears.
It wasn't me in arrears but another man with the same first and last names, only our middle names were different.
