"I'll admit I may have seen better days,

Are you sure it wasn't Peanuts?
Low brow Nicolas!
Is she still a friend? X
Ask Tallulah Bankhead, it's her quote, but I did like it
Were you shaken? Was she stirred?U
Haha ... that is brilliant :-)
Not her best quote they were usually all about sex
A true LOL! Thanks, John!
Only good girls keep diaries x
So none from you then
Only u Sussex her
It is very embarrassing and happening to me regularly now.A while ago I called a acquaintance,another dog walker, by another ladies name that she was not fond of at all-she corrected me quite irritatingly x
Try this for size, Flis. Only yesterday did I learn (through a third party) that I have been calling someone Ian for years and years and years when his name is Rob. Do I feel robbed? Of my dignity? No. Shame on Rob that he never told me that he isn't an Ian. Though he does look like one.U
Could be worse. I can only remember the dog's names.
Ursula,thanks for that.I should think more like you do as being a bit mouselike does me no favours x CharlotteP I usually greet people and their dogs with the dogs names also.If I can't remember their name - it's " hello lovely ,sweetie,or darling" x
I chuckled at that Ursula. My hubby calls everyone Steve unless they tell him otherwise
At least you didn't introduce her as Popeye. I can see the funny side of calling her Martini.On the volunteers' rota emailed out for the charity shop I once wrote down Pasty for Patsy. We did giggle especially when Patsy told me she one worked on the pastry department of a grocery store !
Ah but what a way of remembering her. Touch of class and glass there I think. We had a neighbour who because of a high pitched voice when she spoke was referred to within the family only as "Squeaky Sue"; the times we nearly called her that in person was a very near miss on several occasions. One of the most loveliest people ever and an interesting and unique way of denoting friends. Some names are best not shared though xxPattypan
I love nicknames....they are a particularly Welsh phenomenon
My mother was an " Olive" and hated it all her life. Her lifelong best friend had the same name, both born in 1920 - many little girls named after WW1 because of the olive branch of peace. The war to end all wars- supposedly!Mother was most surprised when Olivia became a popular name more recently, but she didn't like that either!
I may name my next bitch olive
That is a word association if ever there was one!
I love it, check out Miss bankheads other quotes they will make u blush
I think I'd rather be called Martini than Olive. It's prettier :) I was selling Avon awhile back. I was going door to door. I was so shy and nervous that I introduced myself as "Anita". I didn't know any Anitas at the time. It doesn't even sound remotely like my name, Donna. I don't sell stuff anymore.
Martini"Any where any place any how" went the 1970s adverts
Hahaha, my first thought was he needs to use word association then I read the post again and realised that is exactly what you did do, except you turned it round a bit! Nice one! :D
Tallulah Bankhead' s work
Did she have a boyfriend called Popeye The Sailorman?
No, that was Olive Oil. :)
'OYL' I think it was, B.A., but what's the odd 'Y' between chums? - if I may be so bold. ;-)
Names are an issue for me too, but I don't think as quickly on my feet. Voices I remember, names escape.
Time for a name badge
Two lines of happy. Made me giggle.parsnip
I'm not responsible Tallulah Bankhead is
I have the same problem, though I usually get the first letter correct.
Thank Tallulah Bankhead for the quote
As I get old, don't think me senile because I can't remember names, I never could remember names.
But always a face!
I struggle similarly but have a simple system: I call everybody "there", as in just greeting them with "Hello there". The only person who gets offended when subjected to my system is my wife (whatever her name is).
Today I replied to an important email starting 'Dear Kirsty.' Her SURNAME was Kristy *sighs*I also resort to calling people sweetie. Very useful when former pupils meet me in the supermarket!!
I'm so bad at remembering names John that I can't even make a mistake work.
Better than calling her Bloody Mary.
If only I was bad remembering names... I can't remember faces either. I also have difficulties (sometimes) to even remember if i was talking to a male or a female... I'm somewhat faceblind, and other things (like gender or name) are not important to me. But it is not that people are not important, because I have troubles to remember my childrens names, my co-workers' names, names of my relatives etc.I do remember cars, though. And dogs.
I love all comments Except abusive ones from arseholes
