Same height, same pea-green coat, same blonde hair.

He looked at me fearfully
His Dad GLARED at me

I stuttered, giggled, blushed adn pointed at my own DS and the man just huffed off. Silly twat!

it sort of reminds me - whenm DH and I were pre-DC we were on holiday in Hong Kong <quick preen> and I'd put our bottle of water down. DH picked up SOMEBODY ELSE'S bottle and drank from it.

I CRIED with laughter, in fact I just spluttered again jsut thinking about it - DH thinks I am ver ver childish grin

I told DD off for saying something a bit unkind when we were out with friends. The silence made me look up to see DD wasn't there and I'd told off my friends DD. I swear they have the exact same voice. blush

Was an awkward moment as I'd clearly demonstrated my distaste for her comments when her mum hadn't said anything.

LOL chuff!

Fantastic! The world would be a better place if this happened more often.

That said, during the recent school closures, our house and garden was a bit of a magnet for a whole hoard of my kids' friends. When for the 50th time one of them (I thought it was one of mine) left the back door open and let the freezing air in, I shouted something along the lines of "FGS shut the <bleep> door!" and then saw I was saying this to a child not of my loins, I was a bit embarrassed. For a moment.

I have done similar, I was once in a shop looking at something, and not really concentrating, when I heard DD say "Can I have that?" and I said "Can I have that PLEASE"

Then realised I didn't even have DD with me and it was just a random child blush I also got a look from the parent grin

I once told ds to take care not to bump into a little girl at the playground. Little girl's dad had a go at me - 'Oh! You mean not like her brother who has just pushed past her?' No I didn't mean that twat head. Sadly I didn't actually say that.

at least your dc was there at these times..

I went supermaret shopping when ds was months old .. except I left him with gran

I was in the supermarket and a little one started crying... without looing round I started jiggling the trolley and saying yeah I know you need a nap ..

turned round to find my empty trolley and mum with upset little one looking at me like I was mad - which clearly I was

MamaG, I accidentally drank a mans drink in the cinema once, my friend had noticed but found it amusing so hadn't told me, I was so blush when I realised, my friend is still tickled by that too, along with the fact we both kept screaming at the film - texas chain saw massacre blush I was a very senitive 17yo blush

I was in children's shoe shop when I felt a little person biting my bum. As DS was prone to doing that, I wasn't bothered - till I saw him at the other side of the shop with his dad.

The little lad who had been biting my bum was horrified when I turned round, and wasn't his mum. He fell over on his bum and sat in complete stunned silence.

His mother, on the other hand was most entertained by the whole thing and cackled heartlessly.

Before I had children I would not have been so blase about anybody biting my bum!

Many, many, years ago SIL (about 3YO)wandered up to a man in her Dad's football club and put her arms up to be picked up by her Dad. He obligingly lifted her onto his lap and she was quite happy until she spotted her Dad on the other side of the room and turned slowly and screamed heartily at the poor chap who'd kindly picked her up.

Ohh Cicatrice, that made me laugh out loud!!

NonVinaigretteRien Fri 15-Jan-10 23:19:35

Arf at Cicatrice. When I was five, I held another mother's hand cos my mum and this woman had similar coats. I bet that kid never forgets your bum!

Lilred - that had reminded me of the time I was out with my dad at an indoor market. I was twirling about and went the other way around a pillar from dad. I grabbed his hand and walked on.

I will never forget the horror I felt when I realised the hand I was holding was not my dads.
The poor bloke I grabbed didn't know what to do. (This was in the 70's) I burst into tears and full panic.

Dad was a few steps behind wondering where I had gone - he soon heard me!

I was at an airport sandwich bar ordering my coffee. After I had paid, I grabbed the handle of the pushchair in order to get a seat for us, but a young couple wouldn't let me get by. I was not amused, carrying hot coffee, packages and trying to push the toddler. I got a bit cross as they really would not let me past at all and were saying something to me possibly in AustroHungarian, and they looked at bit shocked at my attitude.

It took some time for them to get the English words out for " Would you mind not stealing our child, yours is over there you mad bint"

I accidently told a mum off very sternly today. saw some kids kicking loads of ice on to a road that had just been cleared. couldnt catch up with them. then saw what I thought was a group of kids trying to block a drain with snow that was at a corner that floods every time it rains. didnt want it freezing all flooded cos our road is hellish. so I told them to stop blocking the drain. they turned round and one was a parent I know. oops.

Twice I have grabbed the wrong hand. The first time I tried to encourage a dwarf out of a toy shop, the second was a 70 odd year old woman outside a church. it was dark and she was the same height as dd.

Is it wrong to have laughed so hard at kreecher's post that I have cricked my neck? Ow.

When I was a child and ran up to a man in a wax jacket I believed was my father and gave him a huge hug. Only to look up and realise it wasn't....
