    Oh my god, I need this. I`m HORRIBLE with people`s names!

    Especially since school starts tomorrow and I don`t have hardly any classes with anyone I know.

    People always come up to me and say my name, and I`m always like, "Hey... yooouu...!" And it`s always awkward.

    Always.

    I always forget people`s names at work...well just the new ones really (a lot of people just quit, so there`s a bunch of newbies swarming about)...and those with the weird names that I`m not sure if I`m pronouncing it right, so I just avoid using it. :/

    @Bekil, I`ve known quite a few Yoshi`s (dinosaur from mario) shiratori`s (white birds), that`s at least a step forward.

    Person is a male noun. Genders in nouns are not that widely used in the English language but you notice them when using pronouns.

    But now to get back on track:
    I forget/ignore 90% of what I have heard in the last 40 seconds. I must have ADD, or just very selective memory.

    Yeah I use a similar method for studying i.e remembering the different carbenes I picture a fisherman on his own at the bottom of a cliff and 3 rocks at the top...

    Shrock triplet state carbene, high energy = 3 rocks high up.

    Fisher singlet state carbene, low evergy = lone fisherman low down.

    ...A normal person forgets 99% of chemistry as soon as they`ve heard it :P

    Thats not what I do.

    So your name is Deborah? Hmm.... with an H right? Did you know that your name can be re-arranged to say bad hero?

    Then I normally end up calling them Shawty making it pointless.

    These never work for me, I am just terrible at remembering everything.
    "So, you have to take this paper to this room, and you have to give it to this person."
    "Uhhh...so I take that paper, to uhh that there room and..."
    "..."
    "...what were we talking about?"

    I`ll just stick with:

    Old friend: Hey! Wassup dude! We haven`t seen each other in decades, man!

    Me: Sorry, I don`t have any change.
