I know how embarrassing and awkward it is to forget someone’s name like that. Jill was cool though.
Typically put, I tend to find that one can go for several conversations with a person without ever needing to mention a name. Without the other person even noticing infact.
We actually don’t really use people’s names that often unless we feel a need to clarify who we are talking to or about. Which works in my favor since I can never remember a name to save my life.
I know what you mean. At my job, I know my boss’s name and his boss’s name, but nobody else. And I haven’t needed to know yet, despite talking with many of them nearly daily.
Ha. I am better at remembering faces before names. I will know someones footsteps before their name, My friend knew me for five years before we even knew each others last name. That was only because I was running late to one of my college graduations.
Know how that goes… The nephew of one of my best friends (he’s a year younger than me)… I talked to him almost every day in a month before I even remembered where I had seen him before, now I’m just working on remembering his name 😛
My best friend too, we became best friend the first day we met… From that day, we called eachother brother, since we look and act like we are brothers… Took us about 2-3 weeks until we actually knew eachothers names, and took a year or more until we knew eachothers last name 😛
Is it merely a coincidence that her surname is very close to “sundial”?
Why yes. Yes I did…
had a friend that forgot her friend’s name. for intro she’d just say “this is my friend from college” apparently that went on for a couple of years, or so i’m told.
