I usually remember names but yes there are times when I am talking to the person like a long-lost friend and all that is processing in my mind is what’s the name of this person. The bonding makes the people around assume that you’re best of buds but all you can think of is “Oh God! Don’t let her know I don’t remember her name.”
It’s understandable though if the friend is your parents. Right? Like how am I supposed to remember someone I met when I was small? They are like “Hey! You have grown up so much. Remember me?” – No I don’t but somehow I don’t want to hurt his feelings and so I tell him that “Of course! I remember you” (Hoping he wouldn’t further ask me about anymore details) but his expectant face reveals how much he is waiting for me to utter his name. Dad??? Come on! Help me!!! He is your friend.
Fine! Such situations are still acceptable but what if the other person is your friend? There is this moment that I am going to share with you all which I am not so proud of. There was this instance when I was out with my mom shopping and I suddenly met someone from my college. We both were from the same batch but different branch and had Hi-Hello relationship whenever we met. She was very excited the moment she saw me and came over to meet my mom and as we chatted my mom expected me to introduce my friend to her. Now, I knew the alphabet with which her name started but got confused between two names. I was deeply embarrassed and felt really bad at the moment. Somehow got over with it but now I am very particular about names and whenever I meet someone I am like I am going to remember you my friend (even if we don’t meet ever.)
Tell me have you ever been in that false position beofre? How did you get out of it? Are you good with names or perfectly imperfect with them. Don’t let me feel bad alone. 🙂
PS: This definitely doesn’t mean I will forget your names. Staying connected makes my memory work better 😉
I Heart You All ❤
