This does not have much if anything to do with Autism but ...
Today when looking for the toilets in Marks and Spencers, when, walking in the opposite direction, was someone who even I would have mistaken for me!
I had to think twice to make sure I really was 'me' and not the other person. Really, he was so much like me in appearance (poor chap!) it really made me look twice.
A bit disconcerting at the time! I know in a world with so many people in it there must be others who bear a resemblance. But it is still quite disconcerting when you see someone with such an uncanny likeness!
I wonder if anyone else has had this experience and what their reaction was!
You hadn't walked into the fitting rooms by mistake?
No, but I've had the opposite experience. When walking up a flight of stairs in a clothing store years ago, I turned a corner and apologised to the person coming in the opposite direction as I had almost collided with her. It was a mirror. I didn't recognise myself.
No but I have met what I thought was by brother, I'm so glad I wasn't in a huggy mood.
