as seth godin just blogged a truely unlikely coincidence, i thought i might blog similar ones i’ve experienced. thus: small world 1 – the tennis-pro and i.

years ago a man and a woman come to sit by each other on a british airways flight from somewhere to somewhere. as they notice their accents they switch to german right away. both happen to be from austria. she: “where are you from?” he: “linz.” she: “what a conincidence, i’m from steyr!” (50km away.) he: “well, actually i grew up in steyr, too.” she: “it’s such a small world! speaking of it: in 1980 my son (ex-ATP-tennis-pro peter feigl) played a tournament in lagos, nigeria. when afterwards they were having dinner in a restaurant a little boy walks up and says ‘grüßgott herr feigl’. he happened to be from steyr, too, and my son knew him and his parents, who at that time lived in nigeria, from the local tennis club.”

he: “i’ve heard this story before, the boy is my nephew..”

as you might have guessed already the boy was me and the guy on the plane my uncle. so far small world 1. stay tuned for small world 2 – where autologin can lead to..

Damit hätte ich nicht gerechnet, dass ich heute zufällig über die Frau Feigl lese, die im Nebenhaus wohnte und uns Gfrastern (vor 15, 20 Jahren) immer die Leviten las, wenn wir auf der Terrasse zu laut waren.
