Confused DOT Com


One of the nice things about living in a small town is that when you walk down the street you get to talk to lots of people you know. Of course if you are in a real rush it can be a bit of a pain.

Yesterday Alex was in a real rush and of course met everyone she had ever passed by or once sat next to on the bus.

But the interesting thing was she was grabbed by someone we have known for years. The lady in question is an artist and runs a gallery. She grabbed Alex and took her into the gallery to show her. Alex of course was interested but also in a hurry. Then the punch line came Alex was asked if she would like to sell her lovely jewellery in the gallery. Well Alex was quite pleased to be asked but a little surprised as she has never made jewellery in her life.

"Er, I don't make jewellery"
"Yes you do."
" Er, no, I think you are thinking of someone else." She then mentioned a jewellery maker.
"Oh, er, yes sorry!"

Despite knowing Alex for 15 years she had mistaken her for someone else! Nice to know other people get confused as well.
