If a person you are loosely acquainted with forgets your name, your reaction might be?

Asked by ucme (50021points) November 5th, 2019

Not condoning violence here, but maybe a metaphorical “slap” would be in order, like a severe eyeroll or a well placed sneer when they’re not looking.
For the purposes of this here question, you can assume “loosely acquainted” equates to a, ooh I dunno…a so called friend on the internet, let’s say…off the top of my head :D

A well placed sneer WHILE they are looking works for me!!!

Loosely acquainted? Who cares? Shrug it off. Not even worth the eye roll.

Any next time you see the person call them by the wrong name.

My reaction should be gratitude and relief in the obvious conclusion that “loosely acquainted” justifies either of us regarding the other as insignificant. It’s fine with me.

I don’t care, people are weird with names, I forget sometimes as well. A negative reaction seems silly and needlessly rude.

I would want to reassure them that it’s no big deal and that I struggle with names myself.

ucme's avatar

I shall come clean, like a naughty dawg with its tail between its legs.
This was just banter between a jelly & myself, kind of an in joke if you like.
You may rest easy folks of the www. i’m not that rude or silly…not yet anyway :)

Relief! I couldn’t remember a person’s name if my life depended on it! The last post here by @gorillapaws says it all.

It’s not something that would bother me; I understand it, especially if they are only loosely acquainted.

I would totally understand and kindly remind them. I would NOT turn into an asshole.
