LOL! that was a good one, doc. didn’t notice it until after a while, haha!
and one smart method, chuoming 😉
and i’ll post my doppelganger series #3 here while i’m at it, just coz i can. WAHAHAHHAHA! (sorry ah xes. u can delete it once u see this. heh)
the doppelganger trap (#3)
few weeks back, there is a group of people, within the s@lsa community who planned to have a vacation in phuket, which later changed to pangkor. this group of people are quite the elite group within the community. i was invited to the getaway, but i declined the invitation because i foresee that i will not be able to make it during weekends (weekends are a luxury, plus i might have to work way after office hours every day, and friday and saturdays are definite cases). i was asked again a few times, at which i declined every time, because i simply couldn’t make it.
and then suddenly the invitations stop coming. phew, i thought. it’s damn difficult to say no, u know, even if you have valid reasons. i just hate disappointing others. but… oh well. something i have to learn to change.
back to the topic, things were quite for a while. then one day, a wednesday, at a s@lsa outing at a club in a particular hotel, this girl came up to me and asked, “hey, u got the sms about the hotel ya.”
me : “huh? what hotel?”
she : “the pangkor trip!”
me : “huh? what pangkor trip?”
she : “didn’t u get the sms from me?”
me : “no, i didn’t get anything from u” (quite simply because i didn’t have your number and vice versa?)
she looked bewildered and then went off to look for the person who organized the trip (quite an authoritative figure) and there was a commotion amongst them for a while. i was confused but i didn’t want to pursue more coz i didn’t want to give the impression that i have changed my mind. so i let things settle at that.
the trip was just a few days after that, and they came back telling me how much fun it was and how i should’ve gone. -__-;;
anyways, 2 weeks after that trip i found out the reason for the commotion. apparently one of the girls, on hearing that i declined the invitation, decided to take matters into her own hands. she sent an sms to me, asking me to go. and the sms reply was, “ok, no prob.”
the problem was, that wasn’t me. that was the … urm.. cough-doppel-cough-ganger-cough. i didn’t even have her phone number, and yes, not even now as i’m typing this entry. not once did they realize that it wasn’t me, and all the coordinations were done thru sms. the organizer and another fren who at the beginning invited me, didn’t want to budge in, because they thought the matter was safe in her hands. they were like, “wow, we’re so close to him and couldn’t get him to go, but this girl just snap a finger and he said yes! damn geng!”
aih. sad case. too bad that wasn’t me. they didn’t realize this (for about a week or more, all the while coordinating the trip with him) until the last moment, 2 days before the trip. upon this realization, the other girls were like “URGH. THERE IS NO WAY, ABSOLUTELY NO WAY I’M GOING ON THIS TRIP WITH HIM!!! DO SOMETHING!”
so the girl who invited him had to do the difficult task of breaking the news to him. i dunno what she told him, but i think it’s somewhere along the lines of “sorry, mistaken identity”.
a bit sad for him though. not really his fault. but well, wat to do? i still don’t like him. gossips are circulating slowly but surely about his attitude, and it’s just a matter of time until somebody mistakenly thought that the the gossips were referring to me.
