    For Everyone Who Is Terrible With Names

    Because embarrassing yourself is just a daily part of life.

    For everyone who has ever forgotten someone's name immediately after meeting them:

    For everyone who tried to use a handy name memory trick...

    ...that backfired horribly:

    For everyone who has had to awkwardly describe a person in order to figure out their name:

    For everyone who could remember what a name looked like, but not how it was pronounced:

    Viacom
    Viacom

    For everyone who needed to quickly figure out what to call someone, and panicked:

    For every person who has had to awkwardly greet someone by saying "Hey... you":

    For everyone who can only remember what a name is supposed to sound like:

    DIsney

    For everyone who has tried to disguise their crappy memory by calling everyone the same thing:

    For everyone who sometimes forgets the names of family members:

    Netflix
    Netflix

    For everyone who has tried to stall for time:

    For everyone who wishes there was an app for figuring out people's names:

    For everyone who has ever had to reask someone for their name, and then pretend like they didn't:

    HBO
    HBO

    For everyone who has ever seriously offended someone for screwing up their name:

    For everyone who is super confident that they have a name right, and then is utterly wrong:

    FXX
    FXX

    For everyone who accepts that they are sometimes a forgetful, ridiculous person, and that they just need to roll with it:
