My embarrassing fob moment? Introducing myself to one of my coworkers…for the third time in a day. “Hi! I’m Suzanne!” I said. He stared back at me for a while, then said, “Uh, we met this morning.” Doh! I guess I’m really fobby, because I’ve realized I have a harder time distinguishing between Caucasian people. And it’s particularly bad with guys for some reason. Either I’ll forget ever meeting the dude, or I can’t remember his name for the life of me.
Not to mention, there have been so many times when I’m watching a movie, and I’m utterly convinced that the white actor or actress is someone else. Maybe it’s proof of the “other-race effect,” but here are some actors and actresses that I literally cannot tell apart. I mean, I know not all white people look the same, but don’t the people below totally look like twins?! (At least totallylookslike.com agrees with me.)
