Why is it that men have such a hard time remembering names. Each and everytime I bring up a person that Dustin isn't closely aquainted with I have to go into a very detailed description of who that person is so he can locate where in his muddled brain that memeory is located.
We are in the process of selling our townhouse so we can move into the house we're building in September. A local realtor, let's call him "Brian", has been calling on a regaular basis trying to get us to give him money so he can sell our place to his customers. Everytime he calls, which is quite often, I'll tell Dustin about it.
"Brian called again today."
"You know...Brian. The realtor guy. The guy who initially wanted to buy our place but now he can't cuz him and his wife havn't lived in Canada long enough to get a mortgage so now he's trying to sell our place to someone else for us by trying to get us sign something so he can get some of our money. You know that guy."
This is very common. For every new person I meet I have to memorize not just their name but a garbled slew of info to spew forth to my husband everytime I want to tell him anything about anyone. it's a good thing I'm good with names.
However, the funny thing is, if i give cetain people a new name or nick name to go by he usually picks up who I'm talking about.
"Hey, honey...ChumpChange called again."
"The Realtor Guy?"
See what I mean?
