Strangers Look Like Twins: Two British Men Share Striking Resemblance

By    |   Wednesday, 01 Apr 2015 08:25 PM

In England, it took two strangers who look like identical twins months to figure out what was going on in their community as people continually greeted them by the wrong name.

Neil Richardson moved to Raintree, Essex, and thought it a friendly community as people continually greeted him warmly, but they kept saying, “Hello, John.”

Turns out, Richardson, 79, and John Jemison, 74, look just alike — alike enough, in fact, to be mistaken for identical twins.

“Twice a month I would have someone pass me in the street and say ‘Hello John,’” said Richardson, according to the Express. “I brushed it off at the time but then I realized that the cafe owner always referred to me as John as well. One day I took him to one side and said, ‘Can I have word with you please?’”

What Richardson discovered was that the cafe owner thought Richardson was John Jemison and didn’t believe he wasn’t until Richardson showed his driver’s license and credit card. Although Richardson looked for Jemison online, it wasn’t until later the two shared a bus trip and discovered each other.

Once the two met, they “hit it off immediately,” Richardson said, according to the Express. They have a lot in common, too. Both sing and write poetry, and studied at the same college.

Jemison said he couldn’t believe it when Richardson approached him.

“My only worry is that a number of people probably think I’ve been ignoring them when they’ve been saying ‘Hello John’ to Neil all this time,” he said.
