Not a compliment

As I walked down the street, feeling basically comfortable with my personal appearance, a man on the street said to me: "You look like Bill Gates. Are you related to him?"

I hope this was the start of some kind of a scam, rather than an accurate reflection of how I look to others. I spent the rest of my walk peering at my reflection in doorways and store windows, muttering Bill Gates' name and trying to figure out if the guy was serious or not. Am I doomed to a middle age of aviator-style glasses and overall jowliness? I would suspect so.
