Alright Chris?
A few years back, I used to do a proper job i.e worked in an office, answering phones, filing, nicking stationery etc. There was another guy, Chris, who worked on the same floor as me, but in a different office. We were separated by a walkway on which were situated the shitters and the lifts.

Chris was a bit short, a bit dumpy and with receding hair. Nice bloke. Very nice bloke as it goes. He actually went to the same school as me, but was a few years older, so our paths had never crossed.

One afternoon, I walked across the walkway. Random guy walks past;
'Alright Chris?'.
'Oh, I'm not Chris. I'm TH from Accounts.'
'Oh Sorry. You look just like him.'
'Eh? Really? But he's a short, fat, baldy cunt.'

...30 seconds (if that) later, our paths cross again.....

'Alright Chris?'
'Still TH, not Chris'
'Oh..ha ha..sorry'

....a few minutes later, I see him again on a different floor..

'Alright Chris?'
'Me again'.

To be fair, he did face-palm. I couldn't understand why he could be so sure we looked so similar when Chris was a bit short, dumpy and ugly, and I'm a t'interweb Brad Bit lookey-likey.

In the last 5 years, after I'd left the company, I've seen this same guy twice. Both times, he's said....
