Check this out. For those of you who know my real name, you know that my last name is not extremely common and is certaintly never likely to be used as a middle name. My name appears in the paper usually twice a week and sometimes more often. So when people see my first and last name next to eachother, they know that the story is likely about city business. Well, in today's newspaper in the police blog section there is someone from a neighboring town who got a DUI who's First and Middle name are my First and Last name. His last name appeared on the next line down. So I can imagine there are several people going... "Look Budgie got a DUI".
Has this sort of thing ever happened to you? Have you ever read your own obituary? Have you ever been mistaken for someone else under embarassing or hard to explain circumstances?
