Thread: Weird case of mistaken identity in Cork

    Default Weird case of mistaken identity in Cork

    I had really disturbing case of being mistaken for someone else today and I'm trying to figure if I should or even if I can do anything about it.

    Earlier on today I got off the bus and I walked passed the porn shop and on whim I thought I'd have look in. I was only in the door 10 seconds when the one on the counter started telling me to get out and that I'd done something in there but she didn't tell me what when I asked her and I asked to look at the footage she said she had it but didn't show me she said she recognised me and that she reserved the right of admittance and I was to leave so I said fine but I told her to watch the footage as she had the wrong guy but I don't know if she bothered.

    I was wondering if there is anything I can do as I don't want any bad behaviour associated with me but where it is is kinda sensitive and I don't ever have to bother going in there again and I don't live in the city but I do have to catch a bus near the shop sometimes.

    sometimes trying to fix something just makes it worse and you end up looking even more quilty in peoples eyes esp when someone doesnt know you dey are less likely to give you da benifit of da doubt and listen to your words.
    my advice is just leave as is as if you say nothing dey will say nothing.if you try to defend yourself and clear your name you may end up being put in a corner and having to go all out to clear your name and if you do this at some point you will ask yourself was it worth it.you could make this a whole lot worse by tryin to clear things,id leave it at that and if no more is said then all isnt to bad.clearing your name can be alot harder and alot more time exumming then you realise.some things you just cant win regardless what you may think..

    Probably right but it shook me a bit as I don't much like confrontations and an argument in a porn shop is a bad scene as well and the idea of having a doppleganger who's a complete eejit living close enough to cause me problems.

    Wouldn't fancy the arguement either but what if the weirdo goes back to the shop and causes more trouble?

    Best leave it alone, guaranteed she doesn't have the footage anymore so now that she has imprinted you as the culprit trying to convince her otherwise will be futile as all she will see now is you when she tries to recall.
    Could have been more embarrassing, I fought like cats and dogs with my sister when I was younger, she had really annoyed me, gave me a thump pushed me to the ground and ran off, I gave chase ran around a corner and there she was just standing there with her back to me, I snook up on her and gave her such a thump on the arm, not very manly but we were kids, anyway of course it was a woman that from behind was the image of my sister, even down to her hair, fuck was I embarrassed, apologized, told her I mistook her and ran off

    How could you mistake a woman for your kid sister? Just curious...

    Like I said from behind she looked like her and obviously I wasn't paying complete attention otherwise I probably would have realized, not like I was an adult when it happened, BTW thanks for the downer on an anecdotal story

    If I'm not mistaken you do have the right to view that footage under Data Protection laws. Though you may want to ask yourself if it's worth being bothered with.

    From my standpoint I'd be inclined to tell you forget it, no lasting harm done to your reputation. On the other hand if you feel you must address the issue then I think you've got the right to. Having said that, while you do have the rights it'll take blood, sweat, tears and probably money to exercise them. You'll probably be dealing with a pure ignoramus in that shop who will keep telling you to f**k off until a solicitors letter lands on their door mat.

    I was going to e-mail them to ask for a copy of the footage but they don't seem to have an e-mail but when looking the place up I did find another account of her being rude and shouting at people which is very bad form for an adult store.

    My advice for anyone in Cork is avoid the black adult store in Cork (don't want to name it). It doesn't seem to have much in it and at least one of the staff is very rude.
