Weirdest. Thing. Ever.

I'd expect someone with the name "Jim Smith" to encounter a lot of instances where his name gets mixed up with someone else's.

But me? MY name?

Oh yes. I'm not going to tell you what it is, but if you already know it, well, there are two of us in Nashville, one in Greenbriar, and one in Memphis. JUST in the state of Tennessee.

I nearly picked up her tickets at TPAC for Handel's Messiah tonight. There were four instead of two - luckily I had the confirmation number with me.

A long time ago I signed on to online banking to discover $4000 in my account that wasn't mine. Turns out it was the OTHER me. I changed banks. We also have the same dermatologist.

Well, my last name is very common up north, but I wouldn't have thought it would be common down here at ALL.

Uh yeah, realized I had to change my post a bit. I read a book recently by someone whose name is the same is yours with slightly different spelling of the first name. And when I saw her pic in the book I realized the two of you do not look unalike...

I found her, she doesn't quite have the look, but she's not far off.

My family is so freaking huge I'm probably related to her. We have a cemetery near my home town. Yeah, that's right. A cemetery where everyone buried in it is related to me. It's pretty big, too.

Dude, somebody with my name is a Porn Star. I discovered this when I Googled myself, which, I just realized, sounds nasty. I just hope my parents don't see it!

My first name is uncommon enough that I actually rarely meet people with it. I think I've met about 6-8 people with my name. However, there was a woman with the same name as me who was arrested for a string of robberies in a town that's about 45 minutes from where I live. And my name is not really common at all. The strangest thing was that even her middle name was extremely close to mine.
