I'm Not Saying, I'm Just Saying

Three weeks ago I submitted a paper. Professor B, a friend of my professor, was suggested as a reviewer. Today my professor got a manuscript to review from a different journal than that which I submitted to, that has very similar experiments to mine. This is fine and not surprising, more support for the conclusions and such. But I have to say their abstract is eerily similar to the last paragraph of my manuscript.
