I don’t really understand whats wrong with my ability to remember people. I am not able to recollect names when I see people and end up in really embarrassing situations.
Last month when I was in my village. I went to a shop. I lived in that village for almost 4 years. Had a few friends there. I saw a person approximately of my age, approaching towards me. I suspected him as one of my friends. The face looked familiar but I couldn’t recollect his name. Even after trying my best, I couldn’t.
Friend : Aur kulbir bhai kya haal hain?
Me : badhiya hai .. tum sunao.
By that time he guessed that I was not able to recollect his name.
Friend : Tum to bhool hi gaye yaar?
Me : Nahin yaar aisi kya baat hai. Bas thoda chehra dhyan nahin aa raha …
I was like WTF. Chehra dhyan nahin aa raha … naam pata nahin … wtf is left to forget about this person.
This happens quite frequently even in IIIT. I remember all the names, all the faces. But I forget the god damn mapping
Once a guy from UG3, XYZ was in my room regarding some Linux problem. I happened to minimize all the windows and saw a friend request from Tushar Nandwal on gtalk. I knew that Tushar Nandwal was from UG3. I just asked (for the very sake of asking) XYZ, “Tushar Nandwal tumhare batch mein hi hai na”. And he said “Sir, main hi tushar nandwal hoon.”. I was like WTF. This was one of the (because I keep facing them frequently) most embarrassing situations. Why the hell I even asked that question ?? :((
I knew XYZ by face. I knew that there is a guy Tushar Nandwal. But I never knew XYZ and Tushar Nandwal are same May god help me 😐
