I used to have a visual doppleganger in university, which confused a lot of people. We never met each other, but we heard a lot about the others' movements ("oh, why were you at X location last night?") and got approached by acquaintances-that-weren't-ours pretty frequently! (at least, so I gather from the acquaintances of hers I met [who I initially thought were just faking so as to strike up a conversation, which was a golden opportunity missed to find out who on earth this *was*] and from the acquaintances of mine who reported to me that there was this person who looked like me but wasn't me that they'd talked to.) Fortunately, as far as I know, she was non-problematic as an individual to be confused with. :-)

A legendary debt-dodging name doppleganger would be... a substantially different experience... though! Congratulations on shedding this debt-collecting company!

KC - there was a girl in my college who didn’t look like me but had all my mannerisms - a number of people mentioned it.

KC

Fascinating! A mannerism doppleganger! I wonder if you shared some cultural influences, or what was going on there exactly?

TheQueen

KC - people explained that she was very direct and “artistic” and had a deadpan sense of humor that people found confrontational.

KC

Fascinating! How did you feel about that?

TheQueen

KC - enh. They quoted things she said, and they sounded fine to me. She would have fun with people, pretending to be insulted by some innocuous comment. I think I would have liked her.

KC

Yeah, that sounds fine. It's just often... weird... how people see/categorize you. But if it sounded like you would have liked her, I think that's a triumph. :-)

TheQueen

KC - me too.
