i just discovered that what i've thought (for years) was one person is, in fact, two distinct people
i've been mistaking this guy "Tom", important but not in my org, for "George", important, my boss's boss
i just thought this is what george looked like when he shaves (george has a scruffy beard, tom is clean shaven except for a goatee)
i've had important career conversations with tom that i then referenced in an email with george and i had NO IDEA
prosopagnosia is bullshit, for fucks sake,
my boss says he's always had the goatee
i countered well yeah but he shaved the, he shaved the sides though
"no he's always had that"
i float through an ocean of uncertainty, carried upon waves of doubt, no harbours in sight,
@killeveryhetero phantom beard syndrome
@gdkar it turns out that every employee at this company is actually a humble man named Kevin,
@killeveryhetero you can’t honestly be expected to tell us all apart, honestly.
@sweetmercury no one can convince me that the middle guy there isn't a serial killer
