Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments Actually I'm pretty bad at both. It's so embarrassing. People come up and say hi and usually I have no clue who they are. I always have to ask, and then apologize. It just gets worse the older I get. Sometimes I say I was on painkillers at the time, from a car accident.

Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) Faces. I can recognize someone easily, and know exactly where I've seen them before, but ask me to remember their name and it's a no go.

I have no shame at all in telling someone I don't remember their name. Why be embarrassed about it? I just tell the person straight up that I remember them from whatever place, but I really suck at recalling names. I even disclaimer that there's a chance I'll ask them again the next time we meet.
