I had a strange conversation with a client today. It went a little somethin like this...
Woman: Hi Kat, I have an appointment with you. (big cheery smile)
Me: I'm not Kat, but she'll be right with you. (less than cheery smile)
Woman: Oh, then I think I made my appointment with the wrong person. I wanted you. What's your name? (frowning)
Me: I'm Robin.
Woman: No, that's not it. (deeper frown)
Me: *blink blink, looking down at name badge* Um, yeah, I'm pretty sure it is... Kat is probably who you want, we look similar.
Woman: Wow, you two must be twins or something. (smiling again)
Me: (weak half smile, not saying a damn thing because this is the 3rd time today I've been mistaken for Kat who is 9yrs younger, has a shaved head and just happens to be the only other lesbian in our shop)
Seriously people. We don't really all look alike, right??
