I forget peoples names/face all the time;; it could be someone that I've known for years or someone I just met it doesn't matter and I explain this to people and usually it doesn't bother my friends but others.. especially 'older' people I have noticed get really angry and upset with me even though I absolutely connot help it;;

but with people my age or younger i just ask for their name again and usually I can remember them if I have their name written down on like.. birthday calenders or in my phone etc. :')

and likewise if people forget my name I don't get upset because I know how awkward that feels so its all fine ^^ we get to make friends all over again.. sort off xD;

I tend to call everyone dude or bro anyway X3 Besides, asking someone for their name when you should know it just feels rude

I usually keep on pointing at the person with my friend until they say their name and then I say, "Yeah, _____" XD

I usually make up a nickname for them. The tech guy at my school became "The Wifi Guy" for example (eventually everyone at school adopted it, too! ;p)

Oh right! That should be an option too XD
LOL "Wifi guy", he must be in high demand all the time for everyone to adopt that nickname for him
