Maybe we all need name tags
August 30, 2011
It’s happened to all of us… and it happens all the time.
There’s that person, in the office or in the neighborhood, that you see ALL THE TIME. But you can not for the life of you remember their name.
What the heck are you supposed to do in that situation. You are supposed to know their name. You’ve been saying hi in the hall way for YEARS.
But there’s that possibility that they don’t know your name either. It could go both ways.
We never think about that. We just get stuck in that horrible feeling that we were supposed to remember and there’s nothing we can do.
Until someone we know greets them and then … hey presto! There’s the name.
Wouldn’t it just be easier for all of us to wear name tags?
