I spotted your blog when I was Googling for "Sarah Duncan Bath" - but immediately saw that it wasn't you on the road rage video. Hope you aren't the focus of any misplaced anger.
So glad that you've spotted this, Sarah and are aware of it. Aren't people weird ?
Brian, I hope so too! I've asked the local paper to make it clear that it's not me, so I'm hoping that will help. Lizzie, I"m not sure weird is quite the right word - just hoping no one thinks it's me.
I dont think the green knitwear was the reason people have a problem with the other Sarah Duncan. The one they are all looking for is Search "Sarah Duncan BA14"
Oh gosh, now I have to get onto YouTube and see what you're on about! I'm sure no one thought it was you anyway, you're far too balanced and normal! (I think. Mind you, you never know what writer is really like if all you know is their writing, heh heh) Ginny
And there was me thinking, thank heavens for the lack of green knitwear in my cupboard!Ginny, I'm really utterly neurotic and peculiar, but v good at pretending to be normal...
Unlike your namesake, your internet response seems spot on! And besides you look nothing like her.Your "other" only needs to make a public apology and admit she was wrong in her parking, in her law and in her seeming video assault, to kill this story. Sadly, no such common sense, so different from yours.
I hope you don't mind me pointing out that you're much prettier than the cRaZy Sarah Duncan too.
I have to say that I will never again shop at SDK knitwear because of her demonstrably ridiculous behaviour. I will, however, continue to enjoy YOUR work xx
Anon, surprisingly, I don't mind anyone saying that I'm prettier than someone else!Mindy, thanks for reading me.
Hi. Just think of the passing internet traffic your blog will get.
Heck ya you are prettier than the other woman!!The said video is making the rounds on Reddit.Your blog will probably catch on fire from all the traffic you will get from this incident!redditorCalifornia
Any news articles I've read have gone out of their way to clarify it's not the author Sarah Duncan - I hope this turns into good publicity for you!
Sorry that this person had to share the same name as you. Hope people don't confuse you with this crazy person! Hmm...might as well check out your books while I'm here.
Hi SarahI'm sure no-one will make this mistake, it's stated clearly with the video "Bath knitwear business owner Sarah Duncan - not the author Sarah Duncan, who also lives in Bath - was caugh".Enjoy the accidental incoming attention though!
Have you ever thought about writing a novel about a wealthy knitwear owner who goes bankrupt after screaming at a pedestrian for catching her being a bit of a tit? You could chart her spiral into depression, hitting of the bottle, sale of the Audi etc. It writes itself!
This story is from your point of view is turning into a twisted ending of Kubrick's Spartacus. I have just had 10000 T-Shirts made in the "Frankie Says" style reading "I'm not THAT Sarah Duncan from Bath".
The persons in the video are just vile. The woman is utterly vile and the husband is an arse. I hope the guy who filmed it is not too traumatised! LOL
Take a look at this News link guys. This Blog is the REAL SARAH DUNCAN. She's just in hiding the obnoxious idiot. http://www.thisisbath.co.uk/Abuse-driven-Bath-road-rage-video-YouTube/story-15030136-detail/story.html Read the part where it says... 'On her blog, she says: “Just to clarify – the video of road rage currently going viral all over the net has nothing to do with me. It’s a coincidence that the shop and I share a name, and we’re both in Bath. I don’t drive an Audi, have short dark curly hair and never wear green. And I hope I’m not so daft.”
Dear Sarah,The Missus is reading Kissing Mr Wrong this week and she's been telling me how much she enjoys it, so I had a feeling that it wasn't you in the road rage video!I also really enjoyed your disclaimer, particularly that last sentence!Here's hoping that this bother will only be to your advantage!
Glad to hear it, Sarah. I'm also glad I found your blog as a result of looking for the "other" Sarah (and I have to agree with "Anonymous" about you being prettier). Stay away from those videocams, regardless. Adam
Thanks everyone for your comments, and to those who been so complimentary - aw, guys! *blushing like mad* I hope that no one's going to confuse me with the "other Sarah Duncan" and who knows - perhaps time will show that all publicity is good publicity. It's been a weird old week!I LOVE the idea of the T shirt, I am so going to have to get one made. And please thank 'the missus' for reading Kissing Mr Wrong - I hope she enjoys it.
Don't worry, Sarah. No one will confuse you with the slapper in the road rage incident. And the publicity will be only good for you; after all, the only really bad publicity is an obituary.CordiallyScofflaw
I found your blog while looking for the self-important Knitwear shop owner online. It's pretty obvious that you and Mrs Duncan from Bath are not the same person. But your blog is on a subject I enjoy so I guess your namesake has at least found you another reader.
And now you're here, I hope you enjoy it!
