Mistaken Identity

LETTER: Mistaken identity

Source: Independent, The; London (UK)

Sir: Last week I made a short business trip to Padua, flying between Heathrow and Marco Polo airports. My passport was examined 11 times - four times times by airport security, three times by airline staff, twice each by Italian and UK immigration. Only it wasn't my passport, it was my wife's, mistakenly picked up when I left home. Our friends are kind enough to say we bear little resemblance.
