Thread Name: Trouble remembering names?
Subject: RE: Trouble remembering names?
I'm horrible at remembering names. All the people who come through my work remember ME, but then they call up, and say, 'Hey, this is Chad. Wanna have the boss call me after 3?' And I know they're going to be insulted if I say, 'Chad, who?' So my boss gets a list of first names and phone numbers.

Occaisionally, they'll give me the number of their local union (we deal mainly with labour unions at work), like 'This is Gerry at 3821. Have the boss call me, ok?' But my boss usually figures out who these people are, so...

And I also suck at remembering the names of other people's girlfriends, boyfriends, and spouses. And when I go into a book store, my mind goes blank. Either I spend about 5 hours there, looking around, or I have to bring a little piece of paper with author's names on it. My god, what will I be like when I'm 40? :o
