Do you feel insulted when people don't know your name

Just moments ago, a room mate of mine, who I have been living with for a year now cannot remember my name.

I felt like slapping her.

Just home from the convent, Christina just couldn't muster the words 'Mommie Dearest'.

On the contrary, I count on it.

It deeply offends me!

Are you the guy who started two threads about his roommate who won't talk to him? Face it: she hates you. She doesn't *want* to know your name.

I feel less insulted than I used to over people not remembering my name, but it's because I remember everyone's name. I have a really different memory from most people's.

So your room mate (sic) had a stroke and all you can do is take it personally? Just like an old twat.

OP, I feel your pain. My friend Julie has been living with me for a year and she can't remember my name. She is such a bitch.

No, because I have an unusual name.

No. I forget peoples names all the time.

I ate lunch with a guy almost every day for two years and two months later he didn't know who I was. It didn't hurt that he didn't recognize me. What really hurt was that he didn't recognize my name after I told it to him.

I was a second son and a middle child. No one has ever known what my name is. My neighbor of going on 20 years has called me by the wrong name all of those years. A name with the same first letter but otherwise not similar. I gave up correcting her long ago.

There are people I see only a few times a year, usually because they are friends of friends, but knowing they will be at a social event, I always make sure I brush up on their names before I get there. You would think they would do the same but it's always obvious when they say "How ya doin'?" that they don't remember my name.

Maybe she has a brain problem.

Geez OP.

Maybe Mr. Cellophane should been your name...

When I lived in Seattle many years ago, there was this one guy (I called him the Aryan) who I would run into all around the country for some strange reason. He never remembered me.

One time, I ran into him in Boston. I said hi, he said something to the effect of "I don't know you, do I?" I said of course you do. You've been to my house for dinner parties so you must be an imbecile. Felt good to say that finally.

Was his name Tim by any chance, R18?

It's pretty insulting but I've forgotten people's names I try to not take it personally. There are always ways to carefully work around the fact you don't know their name and then later ask someone "Who was that again? I can't believe I forgot their name!"

It basically just makes you look bad if you blatantly let someone know you forgot their come across as uncaring and not all that bright (kind of dumb in that when you're an adult and in a professional setting, it's part of your job to remember people's names).

What's in a name, OP? Don't fret yourself about it.

I feel insulted when they pretend not to remember my name to put me off. So I sent him a clip on bow tie and suspenders for his birthday, in recognition of his white trash status.
