Now, what was your name again?

Well, it’s confessional time, of sorts- or the closest my Baptist self will come to it, I suppose:  I am bad at remembering names… scratch that- I am really, really bad at remembering names.

I’ve heard it said that 80% of the times one is handed a pen to try out, they’ll write their name.  No hard evidence to support that that I’ve seen, mind you (and I might argue that drawing a bunch of squiggly lines is near the top of the list, too), but I can see a the reasoning and all:  Names are important.

On the TV show Cheers, that bar was a place “where everybody knows your name”- a warm, welcoming sort of busines.  Who wouldn’t like the folks at their favorite establishment calling out their name when they arrived?

On the other hand, Alan Jackson sang a song called “I Don’t Even Know Your Name”- and his evening with a waitress named whatshername didn’t turn out too well at all.

We’ve only got one name.  There may be others that have the same name, but our names belong to us- and deep down, they’re pretty dang important to us.

Clients like it when you remember their name.  It sends a message that you’re someone who values their business, and someone who generally cares about seeing to it that things turn out for the best.

That’s why I came out with this here confessional…. I’m owning up to the pitiful name-recollectin’ ways of my past and looking ahead to better name-recalling days ahead.

Now, what was your name again?
