Do you get offended when an acquaintance doesn't remember your name?
I hear remembering folks names is a good business practice.
good thread, uh, Rolling Pin
no poll btw.
We've had our share of hard times
But that's the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you'll never be lonely
And you are?
Napoleon the Third, Emperor of France and nephew of the great Napoleon, boasted that in spite of all his royal duties he could remember the name of every person he met.
His technique? Simple. If he didn’t hear the name distinctly, he said, “So sorry. I didn’t get the name clearly.” Then, if it was an unusual name, he would say, “How is it spelled?”
During the conversation, he took the trouble to repeat the name several times, and tried to associate it in his mind with the person’s features, expression and general appearance.
If the person was someone of importance, Napoleon went to even further pains. As soon as His Royal Highness was alone, he wrote the name down on a piece of paper, looked at it, concentrated on it, fixed it securely in his mind, and then tore up the paper. In this way, he gained an eye impression of the name as well as an ear impression.
one ^ of my better posts
If someone has known me more than a few days or a week or two, yes, its insulting and I have that person fired
I must have missed it.
I'll write yer mom.
My name isn't very common so I find that most people don't remember it. For that matter, many think it is something completely different.
Thanks to the "Twilight" movies, it is now a little more prevalent. There is a vampire with the same name. And there is also a saint with the same name as me. So goes my life.
No one in my family remembers my name.
Sup, Bella...you blood sucking hewer?
It's not Bella but I wish it was!
I forget which actress plays the character with my name...
