Twins have the opportunity to prank everybody by pretending their the other twin. Which shows how hard it is sometimes to tell the difference between them. Here are the most embarrassing moments twins have been mistake for the other one...
The Cheating Husband
“My twin brother recommended a restaurant to me. Said that he and his wife went there all the time, good food, really friendly staff…So I took my wife there. Food was as advertised, but the service… somewhere between cold and openly hostile. Like they resented our presence. I was puzzled by the contrast between what I’d heard and what I saw.
Suddenly from the front of the restaurant, explosion of laughter, much rapid talking, suddenly the waitress is there, smiling and all… just as my brother and his wife walk around the corner. They thought my brother was cheating on his wife with some blonde… Yeah, it’s funny now.” Source.
The Full Head of Hair
“I went to a party once, and my bald identical twin bro had yet to arrive. His girlfriend was already there, so I gave her the obligatory friendly hug, then sat on the other side of the room to hang out. This other guy, a mutual friend of his and hers, kept staring at me, then staring at her, with this real nervous ‘WTF’ look on his mug. For about fifteen minutes, every so often, this guy would look around nervously and then furiously text on his phone. Then my brother arrives. He kisses his girlfriend and says hi to everyone, and this guy blows up. ‘JESUS WAS NO ONE GOING TO SAY ANYTHING? WHAT THE F–K WAS THAT? I THOUGHT HE GREW A FULL HEAD OF HAIR IN A DAY.'” Source.
The McDonald’s Fakeout
“Not me but a co worker has two sets of twin daughters. The younger pair are identical and both work at the same McDonald’s. The manager often puts one on the pay window and the other on the food window just to mess with customers.” Source.
The Wrong Sister
“Not an identical twin but married to one. When I was dating my wife, she and her twin sister had a bunch of friends over. I walked over to her and put my arm around her and she leaned into it. I leaned in for a kiss but then she pulled away. I thought, well maybe she’s not comfortable with a little peck in front of our friends since we hadn’t been dating for too long. Then I scanned the room and made contact with my girlfriend. I looked back in awe that I had my arm around her sister (who was messing with me until things went too far). I then tucked my tail between my legs, walked over to my girlfriend, put my arm around her and said, ‘well, will you give me a kiss?'” Source.
The Magazine Thief
“My twin brother had a huge stash of dirty mags in his closet and I always wondered where he got the money to buy them. One night I walked into a nearby convenience store with some friends and the guy behind the counter threw me out. I had no idea why. When my friends asked he told them he had caught me stealing dirty mags the week before.” Source.
You’re in the Wrong Room
“Not a twin, but my brother and I look startlingly similar, even being almost 2 years apart. I’ve gotten harassed by teachers, faculty and other members in grade/high school for being ‘in the wrong room’ or ‘this isn’t your lunch schedule’ or had people get furious that I didn’t know what they were asking for/about (homework, sports practice, whatever). What takes the cake is I had leg surgery in highschool and somebody called me out for ‘faking my injury’ because he saw me at practice at night, and in a wheelchair during the day. Don’t flip somebody out of a wheelchair at school. Seriously. Who fakes broken legs to be cool?!” Source.
It Wasn’t Me
“My father is an identical twin. He was mistaken for my uncle while walking with a woman hand in hand down the street in London, England. The witness was a friend of my aunt, and immediately called her to accuse her husband of infidelity. She was at that moment sitting beside my uncle in Ontario, Canada.” Source
Not a Twin, Just Asian
“Not a twin, just Asian. Constantly asked at work about projects I am not involved in. Realize coworkers think I am the other Asian guy.” Source
The Psych Out
“I was dating a girl in college, the first time i went to her house, she opened the door, i told her i liked what she did to her hair and kissed her, she kissed me, we went inside, she then yells ‘your boyfriend is here’. They were weird girls.” Source
That’s Not My Name
“I’ve been called my twin sister’s name my whole life… So one day I accidentally introduced myself to someone as her. When I caught and corrected myself after, they thought I was straight up crazy for not knowing my own name.” Source
What Do I have to Do to Prove…
“When we were in the 6th grade, my brother decided he wanted to stay at home because he wasn’t feeling well. So far, there had never been a day where only one of us was at school but I didn’t think anything of it. I was walking down the hall and all of a sudden I was pulled in by a teacher who I had never seen before and she started yelling at me (and I mean yelling at me) because I had skipped her class and I had the audacity to walk in front of her class right after. It was really awkward to just say, ‘Uhh, I have an identical twin brother… My name is JSweat’. She of course, thought I was making a terrible excuse and I had to go get another teacher that knew I had a brother to come tell her that I was telling the truth. She never bothered me again! Other than that, we’ve never had a super embarrassing story.” Source
I’ve Seen Your Husband With Another Woman
“A friend and his wife go to the same supermarket every week. His identical twin also goes there, with his wife. One day, after summoning up the courage, the cashier pulls my friend’s wife aside and says: ‘I’m sorry to have to tell you this but I’ve seen your husband here several times with another woman.'” Source.
He’s No Boyfriend, He’s My Brother
“Some girl decided to suggest that I date a guy that looked very, very much like me. Yes, those were her words. ‘There’s this guy, who looks so much like you…you two should get together!’ ‘Is his name (name)?’ ‘Yeah!! You’ve met him?’ ‘Yes, that is my brother!'” Source.
A Prolific Pedigree
“My father spent a year abroad before returning to enroll in the same college as his twin brother. The first few days were pretty standard, acquaintances of my uncle mistaking my dad for him, business as usual. That was until one girl approached him, publicly mind you, and with a wink said ‘you were really great last night. I gave your number to a few friends, I hope you don’t mind.’ Naturally my dad went from there to immediately seek out and congratulate his brother on his good fortune…and hopefully share in the spoils. On the way he found himself receiving a disproportionate level of sly smiles and sidelong glances from some of the groups he passed. By the time he finally found my uncle, he was thoroughly perplexed. Surely his brother couldn’t have been this lucky, they were good-looking guys, but this was just ridiculous. My uncle flushed and faltered when confronted by my dad. He stammered and tiptoed around the issue before my dad finally got it out of him. How had he managed so prolific a penile pedigree? He hadn’t. Turns out my uncle had spent all his money in the first few weeks and had turned to desperate measures for cash. He had been working as a stripper, doing mostly private parties, but naturally word got around. So for the rest of the year my father had to contend with the fact that a good number of the people on campus had effectively seen him naked.” Source.
Senior Year Switcheroo
“My sister and I had been asked all through out school if we had ever switched classes. So our Senior year of highschool we finally decided to do it. I wore and outfit of hers and did my hair like hers and vice versa. I sat through her art class no problem. The teacher never f–king noticed. She sat through my American Government class and the teacher waited until the last few seconds of class to make the announcement, ‘I’d like to thank Kate for visiting our class today, please tell Becky we hope to see her back here tomorrow.’ Did I mention my American Government teacher was f—ing awesome?” Source.
That’s Your Reflection
“My friend said ‘Hi’ to his brother one morning. Well, it turns out his brother was actually his own reflection in a window. His Mom witnessed it and has never let him live it down.” Source.
Stop/ Slow/ Switch
“I work for a construction company. We used to have a set of twins that were flaggers, held up the Stop/Slow signs when we have a lane closed. Their favorite thing to do would be to hand the driver of the first car something and tell them to give back to them on the other end.” Source
The Sorrowful Sibling
“My twin had recently committed suicide and I was at a bar drinking away my rage and a friend of his came up and flipped out on me saying how awful of a joke it was and took everything I had not to remove their teeth with my fist.” Source.
Guard Your Booty
“Not a twin but dated one of two identical twins. They used to play pranks on me where they would pretend to be the other one / switch places to test me. That all stopped when I walked up to the wrong one, grabbed onto her butt, and told her some of the very explicit things I had planned for her booty later that night. Needless to say one twin found it hysterical while the other one less so. Pretty much for the following three years we dated the other twin used to say ‘Goodnight and guard your booty’ every time we went to bed.” Source.
Gee, Thanks Jon
“Embarrassing I guess…more just totally terrible. We were out with friends and he decided to go to one of the back rooms which was set up for a private party with bottle of spirit everywhere. Well he decided to take a bottle and run off. Cut to me in the club and some bouncers come up to me and take me to a back room saying ‘Oh you’re f—ed mate, we saw you on camera stealing a bottle bla bla’. I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about and they thought I was just playing dumb to get away with it. ‘Stop it mate, we got you on camera’ Somehow finally convinced them I had a twin so they fished him out and they evenutally say we need to come back tomorrow to settle the ‘damages’. That didn’t happen. Fast forward to about 2 weeks after I’m staying at my GFs mum’s house and get woken up by her mum at 6am: ‘Harggot, the police are here’ ‘what..’ Got arrested and put in the police van where my twin is already sitting. Interviews…long waiting…dissapointing polystyrene ‘lunches’. Get off with a warning. Thanks Jon.” Source.
The Joys of Being a Twin
“I have an identical twin sister and we look very very similar. Also some context, my sister is quite a c–t 🙂 and when we went to the same high school she used to be very rude to people that she hardly knew, but sometimes those people were my friends and never believed me when I said It wasn’t actually ME shouting profanities at them from across the hall. ah, the joys of being a twin.” Source.
The Poor Little Twinny
“It was during those awkward middle school days and my twin sister got her first boyfriend. We had our first 8th grade dance and thought it would be soooo funny to switch places with each other to see if her boyfriend noticed….he didn’t and proceeded to go for the big first kiss. Didn’t go so well. They broke up and it was an emotional 2 weeks for my poor little twinny. Ohhh middle school.” Source.
Wrong One, Wrong One
“If you’re a twin, you’re bound to eventually have a few embarrassing stories. My whole life has been a system of awkward hugs or ducking a kiss from a girl and yelling, ‘Wrong one! Wrong one!’ Brother’s girlfriend jumps in your lap while you’re watching movie? It happens. My personal favorite has to do with situations that have occurred due to mistaken identity with my brother now that he’s a marine officer. I joined the Peace Corps shortly after he became an officer (yea, we’re a sitcom setup), and worked as a teacher in Eastern Europe. Over drinks at a dinner during my service with friends of my host family, one of the gentlemen tells me that he used to be a Soviet helicopter pilot and asks me if I’d like to see his uniform. He brings down the full outfit in all it’s medaled glory. We’re almost exactly the same size, and he lets me try it on. Thinking how cool this is, I post a picture online wearing it to show everyone.
My brother calls me a few days later pissed as all h-ll because during his screening for a security clearance someone finds pictures of him wearing perfectly tailored soviet regalia. He yells at me for getting brass up his a– and complains that he might get his clearance postponed. We still laugh about it.”Source.
The Parent Swap
“I’m not a twin but my mom and aunt are identical twins and my girlfriends parents own the only restaurant in my small town and they have told me how they thought my mother was having an affair. Also have had texts from friends that my mother was with another man. I send a picture of my uncle and it’s always him.” Source
