Thread Name: Trouble remembering names?
Subject: RE: Trouble remembering names?
Well I had a friend who was a bit forgetful with names.....she rang to ask me what cd I wanted for a Christmas present a few years ago and I told her "Urban Hymns" by "The Verve".
She is quite a bit older than me and wasn't up-to-date with the bands around at the time and had the assistant in HMV totally bemused when she insisted that she wanted "One Hundred Best Hymns" by "The Burb".
I did get it though so he must have gone to the same sales school as Morticia's salesman did!!

I didn't do much better myself when I wanted to buy the cd called "Brimful of Asha" last year.....could I remember the title...not a chance!! The only lyrics I could remember were "everybody needs a bosom for a pillow".
Caused much amusement for the young guy at the counter.....and all he could do apart from laugh, was agree with me!!!!!

best (I think!!)
