Ever waved at the wrong person?
Have you ever waved at the wrong person
Some unknown person waved at you?
Though we can recognize our friends or relatives very well from a long distance but sometimes it happens that we mistake someone else with our friends or relatives because they have similar features like them.
It can be because of their facial features, way of walking, hair style or dressing sense etc, which matches with some person in our lives. So, our mind processes this information and makes a related image from our memory.
In this situation we generally wave hands, pass a good smile, pat on their shoulders from behind or go near them to start a conversation.
But when it is realized that you mistook that person to someone else. What do you do?
In some cases you are not sure if that is the same person whom you are thinking about and try to look at him/her again and again
Go ahead of them for having a better look at their face to confirm if you are mistaking or not.
If it comes out to be a mistake , both individuals end up into a smile usually at this very common incidence. But some people give you a weird reaction due to this mistake?
What was your case? Ever been in this circumstance?
Also, do you think some people do it deliberately for the fun?
If yes, share it here in comments about your experience.
