Last week i was in my hometown. My brother in law is fishing in a pond in front of my parents house. His phone rang many times but he didn't know. I wanted to call him to let him know that he had phone calls but suddenly i forgot his name. I told myself...hmmm what is his name? Unfortunately there are many people who stand near there heard my talk and they reminded me that his name is Long. One woman laughed and told me: Oh, you are so bad, you don't remember your brother in law's name, so bad... I was embarrassed a bit because i really don't know why i temporarily forgot his name. Have you ever got the same situation? suddenly you forget someone's name...

It happen to me sometimes when I rarely get along with a person. And that make me confuse and think over his/her name and even recall some situation to make me remember the name. Its embarrassing though but I apologize afterwards.

Yeah, why not? That usually happens when I'm not close with someone or I don't get to talk to the person as much as the rest. I'm bad at remembering names and I'm even bad at recalling their faces! I think that's normal since you're not always in your hometown in the first place. I think it would be bad if you forgot the name of your sister or brother though! Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

No, i can't forget my sister and my brother name's because i lived in may parents house 17 years, spent my childhood with them. I just know my brother in law in Dec last year, and i don't meet him regularly. Meeting him, i can count on my hand only. that's why i suddenly forget his name...however is is embarrassing situation...

Awww, i can understand your feeling at that time. However you didn't need to call her name so that she didn't know that you did forget her name for a while...
