Ask them their name and when they reply with their first name, say "oh no, I meant your last name"

[@335499,Zer0Point] clever lol
It takes less than a nanosecond from the time I'm introduced to someone until I've forgotten their name. Unless they have the same name as I do. Those I can recall.
I just call everyone Slappy.

[@638129,LyricalOne] and when you meet two together,do you call them slappy one and slappy two馃槅
[@11430,thesunisout] Exactly! 馃榿
I'm still unsure of which of my nieces is Aime, and which is Hannh. They are both teens by now. I see them frequently. Gotta start paying attention.
Hi. It's great to see you. I feel like a dummy, but your name evades me...forgive me. *just be honest, and sincere.*

I've always been good at remembering faces but never so good with names. Most of my encounters with them are brief so I just carefully avoid saying their name when in conversation (it always feels extremely awkward when I can't remember). If I see them often I'll eventually bite the bullet and admit my lack of memory and ask them, but most of the time I wait to see if I hear someone else say it.

I offend them and ask their name.
I pretend I know them..

I've gone an amazingly long time with some great conservations for weeks with people who's name I was unsure of. Eventually with a bit of help and creativity I got by and got their name.

[@11430,thesunisout] always tricky when you reach "that time" when it really has been too long to ask.

When you meet someone that you know, you don't need to know their name. The problem starts when they recognise you but you don't recognise them.

[@14495,pennynoodles] and then theres that lol

I'm honest. I say "I'm so sorry, but I've forgotten your name..."
