Brilliant. It's so true.

Trick for if you forget someone's name: Ask what their name is, and when they tell you, say, "No, I mean your last name". Makes it seem like you knew their first name all along.
even better, ask them how they SPELL their name. Works EVERY TIME.
Not every time, my mom asked a friend how to spell her name and she answered: Gail. And no we don't need the post that you could spell it Gayle. The point was that she saw through my moms inability to suck it up and ask or just simplly make a voodoo doll with a strand of hair plucked from her head while sitting in the pew behind her and offering the doll up to the god of run on sentences.
