Name? What's your name?

Why oh why can I not remember names? In my previous life I was a travel agent and I can remember hundreds of airport codes, still, to this day....YQB-Quebec City, YVR - Vancouver, SMF - Sacramento, YYG - Charlottetown, FMO - Rome, but buddy accross the street ???? No clue, eventhough we speak all the time, back and forth, he and his wife call me by my first name, really it's very embarrassing.

Regular customers at the diner introduce themselves and I only remember them by burger no mayo, omelet with the works, dry brown toast....

Or even worse...buddy in that red car, or volvo dood, church guy...

There are two people I remember Wayne and Margy and the rest...not a clue, sorry folks, I really appreciate your business and I love speaking with you so pardon my lazy brain but I can not for the life of me remember...

Margaret,
I am really bad with names and my hubby is even worse!! Don't feel bad, you are not alone.

Here's a test - do you know where POC and CCB are? Hint, add a K in front.

I'm terrible about names too, but yours and Art's were easy. We are both Margarets and Art was my dad's name. When I was a kindergarten teacher I made the kids sit in the same place on the rug for at least a week. I could memorize the name with the place on the rug before I could associate it with the face. - Margy
