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.

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?"

On an off note, I quite like the way that video player was designed/set up.

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.

I am truly god awful at remembering names, I can name about half my family... xD

It also doesn't help that I'm bad with faces...

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

I forget peoples names exactly after they say them. I learned to live with that.

A lot of the times if I have forgotten someones name, I just try and avoid calling them by their name for as long as possible...

"the average PERSON forgets about half of what HES heard within 30 minutes"
"the average PERSON forgets about half of what HES heard within 30 minutes"
in other words, the average guy.. lol xD

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.

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

I dont bother to remember peoples names until I know them about 6 months. Or they owe me money.
