    What I mean is for example the other night I was going through the London Underground and my brother had a problem with his ticket so I waited the other side next minute this women is flashing this ticket at me thinking I am the ticket guard even though I was wearing full football colours of Aston Villa. Has anything like this ever happened to any of you?

    Not really. Someone was about to ask me a question because they thought I was a doctor but they then realized I wasn't. I think it was because I was wearing my ID card holder.

    Yes. Someone thought I worked for Sports Direct. I was wearing a Man City shirt.

    A gondolier in Venice, I had dark blue trousers, a polo shirt with a similar print (unintentionally) and a boater (which I bought there on purpose).

    Some kid thought I was a policeman just outside Westfields.

    I also had this elderly woman come up to me and ask for help with her iPhone at an Apple Store thinking I was a tech guy lol

    I was coming down the escalator in M&S and a woman came up to me holding a big fish and said something like "what are you going to do about this fish?" I was taken aback for a second or two - then I said "I don't work here". She muttered something and walked off. But someone else must have seen this, and also assumed I was an M&S manager and started complaining about something else.

    I have several times been mistaken for a footballer, and was on none of these occasions wearing football kit.

    I always get mistaken for someone who gives a s**t.
    I hope you don't let it upset you.

    Never mate. In all seriousness I have an identical twin brother so I get mistaken for him at least 10 times a day, not exaggerating it.
