The Name Game

When I was a Cambridge undergraduate, I was in the same yeargroup and at the same college as this guy. Mind you, in the year below us at Clare there were two Andrew Smiths.

Samuel Pepys finds himself in a slightly more extreme situation, having dinner with no less than four Richard Brownes, three of whom were knighted and thus Sir Richard Browne.

Tell me, does this ever happen to you?

I took a government-run summer course to learn French at the University of Ottawa the year before I started university; partway through they sent me a very nasty letter telling me I owed them $3000 or something like that, and if I didn't pay they'd kick me off the campus and not give me the credit I was earning.

It took a ridiculously long time to get it across that as a nineteen-year old recent high school graduate, I probably hadn't racked up tuition fees going back five years at their university. What a hassle that was.
