So I got my Religious Education exam results in the post today. B. Not bad, could do better. Then I look closer. These are the result for ‘Alex Quang’.



Damn. They've done it again.

My name is Antony Quang. My cousin is Alex Quang. Our dates of birth are three days apart. We're in the same school. And the same grade. See where this is going? This last school year in particular, there has been numerous occasions where we've been mixed up for the others. I've been called Alex more times than I remember. A lot of conversations with teachers include their apologies for mixing us up. And the most annoying thing is that we don't even look alike are are very different. He's a Mario and I'm a Luigi if you compare us in size. He enjoys listening to Red Hot Chilli Peppers while my mp3 players has a ton of JRock. It's getting on my nerves now. Really.

Argh.

Rant over.

Ha.

I also go to school with a relative, but I'm a 5'10 Russian, and he's a 6'0 Puerto Rican. And we have differant last names. So, as you can guess, we've never had mix-up problems before. But, I have had many teachers say to me, “Brandon Wargo? Is Joshua Wargo your brother?”

And then I always say the stupidest thing ever, “Yes.”

And then they just have a weird look on their faces, but I can tell they're thinking, “I now hate you with ever fiber of my soul, and will do my best to make this year a living hell for you.”

Story-time over.

That's one of the coolest pictures I've seen recently. LOL it's even got Avatar in there! Saved!

Well, for the longest time (years), I thought Evil Emperor Nick is the guy who drew 99 Demons. They both liked my comic FIGHT; the guy who drew 99 Demons drew a guest page for FIGHT. I could swear his name is also Evil Emperor or something. Nick, even.

Somehow I got 2 fans rolled together into one superfan in my head. Like Voltron!

Don't worry Alex, I'm sure they're intentions are pure.

Back in junior highschool there were these two chicks in my class, same first name, same last name. Then, when I was in high school, there was this case of a brutal kidnapper/killer by the same first and last name.

I went to all the same schools as my brother only 3 years afterward. And he was a horrible student, and I look just like him!

So the teachers by proxy hated me. WONDERFUL!

A girl and I shared similar names back in high school. We're both Asian but that's pretty much where the similarities end.

There's been a few times throughout the years where we would get mixed up. Sometimes the PA system would mangle the last name and we weren't sure whose name they mangled. One time I had a teacher come up to me offering sympathies for my grandfather. Except it wasn't my grandfather that passed away so I had this confused look on my face while she did that. No big deal but yeah~

That's what you get for having the most common first name in the USA.
Oh, but you're not USAmerican. Close enough.

Religious Education? Man, that sounds like a barrel of laughs. Is it comparative religion or more of a “This is Jesus. He is the son of God. You will pray to him. These are the 10 Commandments. You will follow them.”?

You forgot the rest of the syllabus, which includes “Commandments don't count when there's money involved.” and “Choirboys: Not just for breakfast anymore.”

I kid! I had a great Bible of Literature class, so I know it can work

People like to pronounce my name “Linderman.” Also, my XBox Live subscription says “Linderheiman,” but I did that intentionally. :p
i will also like to know you the more

I've never been mistaken for anyone who looks like me. Sometimes they'll be a vague resemblance (ie, skinny, wears glasses, similar name etc.) but not always.

That bothers me when they mess up my name. My last name is effing four letters long! The teachers somehow came up with, like… 5 different ways to say it!

This year, school's full of BS!!!
