I have a defect i must admit and it's a serious one. I have the worst time retaining someones name when i am introduced to them. I don't think there has ever been one time that i have remembered it. Put better, i don't think i have ever even heard the persons name!
I am not sure what i am thinking about or what is going through my mind but it can be very embarrassing. Never quite sure how to handle situations like this. Do i ask them again or avoid at all costs to address them by name?
There is a neighbor who lives across the street. She has introduced herself more then once. She has my name down pat and addresses me by my name. When i went out to the car the other day she was across the street walking the other way when she dropped something out of her purse.
In a panic i am not sure how to address this situation. I can't say "hey" i can't say "ma'am" or "excuse me miss". So i said "oh hold on you dropped something"!
Do you have this deaf in one ear syndrome like i do when it comes to a person's name?
