Forgetting someone's name?

    Forgetting someone's name?

    Do you ever forget someone's name, and avoid that person at all costs, until someone else reveals it.

    Did you ever find out their name, or did the issue come out in an embarrassing way?

    yep, to over 1k people, after I told them I had 9 concusions they let it go. Trust me this isn't something I'd be trying to be funny about.

    Yes. It happens all the time for me. Remembering someone's name is very difficult and it takes three times for me to see them and be reminded of their name for me to know who they are.

    Yes, I forgot someone's name and felt terrible.  I worked at a bookstore and this gal came in to order one of the HP books.  She was a member of our church (my husband was the pastor at the time).  She was so sweet and so grateful for my help but when I ordered her book, I had to have her name and did not know it.

    I had to swallow my pride and ask her name but I really felt bad because she knew who I was and my name and I just drew a blank.  I can remember numbers after one glance but names are hard for me.
