Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : World Class Idiot


World Class Idiot

The other day I noticed a girl (for the sake of keeping identities safe we'll call this girl Penny Lane) had commented on a mutual friend's Facebook picture. Realizing that I hadn't looked at Penny Lane's Facebook recently and wondering how she was doing, I clicked on her picture.

Gasp! We weren't friends. 

I felt incredibly miffed that I had been "unfriended". It's the worst feeling in the world, especially when you think your friendship/relationship is valid enough to make it through a round of filtering even. You know the feeling I'm talking about, I'm sure of it.

I decided I wouldn't let the "unfriending" bother me, so what did I do? Naturally, I sent her a friend request again and a long message asking how her baby was, how she and her husband were doing, etc, etc.

Later that night I opened up my messages to find something along these lines, "Um, sorry but I think you have the wrong Penny. You look really familiar though... maybe I know you?"

At this point in my head I was thinking, Really? You really just pulled a "you don't know me" when we used to hang out and our husband's went to grad school together?! REALLY?

Before I fixed myself into a huffy mess, I decided to check my friend list just to be sure. As I typed in her name, up popped Penny Lane... one with whom I was friends!


Apparently Penny Lane has a real like look-a-like. (Side note: I hate using the word doppelganger because the real definition of the word scares me). Really though, what are the chances of having the same name, same face and practically the same baby too?

Moral of the story? This would happen to me. Oh yeah, and learn from my example. Check yourself before acting the fool.

This was too funny. On a side note, I just have to say those shoes are fabulous!

Haha awkward. At least you didn't mistake her for the other Penny in person. That would be like 10 times more uncomfortable.

This is hilarious! I have never discovered being de-friended but I have gotten a message like the one you described. It was so incredibly awkward!
