Dumb Bastards

Have you ever been mistaken for somebody else ?
Read on.... (beware- I am venting and use the "F" word five times!)

I am 5 foot 7, 275 lbs. I have brown hair, hazel eyes, no glasses. I have a soft voice, and generally people like me.

We have another person who does the same job I do- he is 5 foot 10, 350 lbs, dark crew cut hair, dark eyes and thick glasses. He is a loudmouth,annoying, phony, and tells people about his surgery where he lost a testicle.... fortunately I have not had to drop my pants to show these shitbuckets that I still have my nuts just to prove I am not him.

Now- how in the fuck this happens, I do not know- but people are constantly mistaking me for him, and I am getting fucking tired of it.
I have started going slightly psycho with customers who mistake me for him. I do not give a dog turd if it scares them off, but dammit, people need to get their fucking heads out of their fucking asses and look at the fucking world around them !
His name starts with a V- mine starts with an H- so the names are not even similar. We wear NAMETAGS but people are too lazy to look.
It happened again today- the man was talking about coming over and doing work at my house in Sliver Springs, Nv.
I don't live there- the man got insistant I did, and I asked him "Are you mistaking me for V--- ?"
He was- then I looked at him and asked "Do I wear glasses ? Do I have a crewcut ? Do I weigh 350 lbs ? Am I that annoying to you ? I would rather you insult my mother than mistake me for a jackass."
He was stammering and I gave him his receipt and went on to the next customer.

Stupid son of a bitch.

I'd probably be tempted to say something like "Oh, no, I'm H--; you want V--; the Amazing Half-Man!" in a loud carny voice.

Or just start crying because the customer thought I weighted x-# of pounds more than I do.
