12.02.2012 | 尊姓大名

[Volume 7 Issue 2, #1322]
對於嗰啲成日話「啊邊個, 你咩名again?? 我記性差呀!!」嘅人, 唔該你, 唔好搵藉口怪自己記性查.. 明知自己記性差, 唔該有所行動做啲嘢.. 我覺得記得一個人嘅姓名其實係一種禮貌, 尤其你用方法幫助自己記得一個人個名, 係對人嘅尊重!! 譬如我會寫低對方個名, 或者用聯想法記住佢個特徵, 都會有幫助㗎!! 所以我絕對唔會允許自己當面問人哋尊姓大名超過兩次.. :)
to those who always say "sorry what's your name again?? i'm very bad in remembering names!!".. sorry but i think this is rather rude, since you know you are bad in remembering names, then please do something to help and not just blame on your forgetfulness.. i actually think it is being polite to remember the name of others, and especially if you use ways to help yourself in remembering the names, it shows respect to others!! for example, i will jot down the names or use some linkages to the significant appearance, and this works well!! hence, i do not allow myself to ask for the name directly for more than two times.. :)

  1. Yeah, it's not polite but it happens, even to the best of us, no doubt. But you are right, we need to make an effort to remember the name saving ourselves the embarrassment of having to ask for it. Good point, SK.

    Another beautiful day ahead. Happy Sunday, SK!

  3. Yes, I think its rude to say that.

    If I can't remember your name, I usually just keep quiet about it and find a way to get your name without being obvious. xD

  4. I'm bad with faces, but I am rather good with matching voices with names.

    Maybe I talk too much on the phone. Hahaha

  5. Got cases where I look like I'm friendly with some people and actually had no idea what their names are! Rude right? But I feel uncomfortable asking their names when they obviously know mine! LOL

  6. If I have to ask for names for the second time (and onwards), I ask someone else who know the person. xD

  7. As long as you can remember my name, ok lah! LOL!!!

  8. If I can't remember, I just avoid it...and carry on some idle chit-chat...and then go our own ways. Can't be somebody very significant if I can't remember his or her name. Hello...goodbye!

  9. 你是B型的嗎?我看你美術很好耶!
    藝術好的人就會有這種問題 是真的
    記得樣子 不記得名字 因為比較能記住影像
    我是記得名字不記得樣子的人
    所以在聚會上看到熟悉的面孔但是卻喊不出名字!

  21. As to address my girl's classmates' parents, I usually go with, "Hi, Nicole's mummy, blah, blah, blah...". Does this sound rude? I don't want to remember which girl's + the mother's name. Scare I'll mix up the names and start calling wrong girl to her mother :p Unless I know them quite well.

  22. Frankly I don't mind if someone I met once in a blue moon doesn't remember my name. Auntie here also the same, hihihi~

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hmmm, sometimes human beings are forgetful la~ I think people won't mind if you say it politely ;)

  24. 有時候唔記得就係因爲對方實在太唔重要,點吓頭就算囖。

  25. In fact, I have a few buddies in gyms, which I have talked them for many times, we will greet each other like old friends in the gyms, but I don't know their names. I didn't ask them. I will sure know their names one day, if I hear others calling them. Hahahaha, I ask for people names also lazy.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I can remember English name easily but give me a chinese name and I tell you, after ten times also I wont get them right. I still cant get Ethan's teachers' name correctly and still refer them as the short hair one, long hair one to ethan as they all just sound the same to me -.-

    btw, what's MY name? :P

  27. true..we love people to remember our name..

  28. 我记性差,通常都会问多几次人哋叫乜名。。。除非係对方畀我佢嘅名片,如果唔係我真係唔记得咁多。呵呵呵~~~

    ReplyDelete
  29. 其实我应该学你寫低對方個名,咁就容易记得囉!呢个未尝係个好方法。

    ReplyDelete
  30. 係吖,记得人哋嘅名係一种尊重,如果问过几次都係仲唔记得咁就真係冇心肝囉!呵呵呵~~~

    ReplyDelete
  31. 我都试过畀人同一时间问过我尊姓大名超过两次,感觉对方真係记性好差,还是唔心去记。而我本身就要见过对方两次面先至记得,我係唔係仲差哩!呵呵呵~~~

    ReplyDelete
  32. 不过,有啲人真係相逢何必曾相识,啲名记嚟都冇用,一转身连佢姓乜名乜都唔记得囉!係唔係问嚟都多余!呵呵呵~~~

  33. You idiot Thambee.... you called me Grandma instead of Anay!!!! Kaneeneh!!... Ha ha ha

  34. My memory is good with names! However many people forgot my name but not my size!

  35. We should wear name tags like the school kids today. That will save all the problems.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I know too many Jason, Eric, Michael and Gary! How come they don't mind sharing common names??

  37. The American scientists found out that playing the 4-Player Mahjong is good for our brains so that can exercise the memory functions well.

    ReplyDelete
  38. The 3-Player Mahjong will not help much but make you greedy!
