A bunch of people mistaken me for a 16-year old teenage girl a while ago.
I will not leave it in your imagination and I will spill the beans: I was also 16-years old at that time and it was happening only when I was talking on the phone (I hope).
I have always had quite high pitched voice. When I was a child it did not differ from my peers so I did not see a problem then. However, around puberty when all of my friends’ voices dropped and mine did not I started having these funny occurrences.
When I was calling my friends in their home phone and their parents were picking up, we were having every time the same discussion:
Friend’s mother: Hello??
16-year old Thanos: Hi there Mrs, can I talk to Michael?
Friend’s mother: Of course dear wait a second. *shouting in the room* MICHAEL, A YOUNG LADY IS ASKING FOR YOU!
16-year old Thanos: Ahm… It is Thanos actually.
Friend’s mother: Oh sorry Thanos! I did not recognize you…
Every flipping time the same.
Finally, I started dropping my voice a bit when I was talking on the phone to avoid this kind of discussions.
