Seat mates can be the most aggravating part of flying. Whether you’re seated next to a chatty stranger, a noisy eater, or slumping sleeper—other passengers can really be the worst.
But what would you do if you sat down next to…yourself? Take a selfie, obviously.
That’s just what happened to Neil Thomas Douglas, a Scottish photographer traveling to Ireland to shoot a wedding. When Douglas boarded his flight he noticed there was a man already sitting in his seat. When he asked him to move, things took a funny turn as the man looked up.
The bearded man in his seat– Robert Stirling from London– bore an uncanny resemblance to him.
“They had a big laugh about it – everyone around them had a laugh, they took a selfie and that was it,” says Lee Beattie, a friend of Douglas who later posted the selfie on Twitter.
