    978 – Forgetting Someone’s Name…After They Just Told It To You 

    Let’s be honest. Half the time when we ask someone, “What’s your name?” we’re just being social. It’s one of the few questions that we know we can safely ask any stranger we have nothing to say to, giving us those few precious seconds to desperately try and think of a more interesting topic to bring up…well…that’s what I do anyway.

    Sometimes, you just don’t think you’ll ever need to know that person’s name. They’re a stranger to you. You only ask because it’s polite. You ask only because you have nothing else to say to them and sometimes, you don’t even realise that you actually asked them what their name is. It’s kinda like saying “How you doin’!”, you ask only because that’s just what people say to people they don’t know.

    Well, there’s all that, but honestly speaking (for men anyway), there’s a very good chance that we were far too busy looking at your boobs to listen to pretty much anything you ever said, let alone your name…sorry, we’re men…we’re awful…I know, I know.

    It’s safe to say, we don’t always remember people’s names. It ‘s bad enough to forget the name of a person you met a long time ago, that can happen to anyone. It’s downright shameful to meet someone new. To introduce yourselves to each other and just 3 minutes later be faced with the need to introduce that person to other people.

    You find yourself in that position where you start uttering the words “…this is…” you point at your new friend and “…”, you draw a complete blank.  You start recalling the entire conversation you had with this person. You remember them say “I’m ¿*”⌐sh“. You now have a clue to what the name is, but you don’t know for sure. Something inside you says “Tash!”, but you’re just not sure if Tash was the last person you met or the other person before that. Tash could be a completely different person.

    You’re now faced with a decision; say “…Tash” and risk getting the name completely wrong. Or openly admit to this person that you’re (at that very moment) introducing to other people, that you can’t remember their name. The simple name they literally just told you…shame on you.
    Worst of all is when this complete stranger actually had the decency to remember your name and they openly address you by it when they talk to you. They cared enough about who you were to actually remember your name. You didn’t. Then, you’re just the jerk that doesn’t bother remembering people’s names. And how self-absorbed is that?

    Forgetting someone’s name (when they literally just told it to you) is…AWKWARD!!

    987 – The Unwanted Boner, At Exactly The Wrong Moment 

    A lot’s got to be said about the benefits of being a man. We don’t have to bare children (thank God), we pee wherever we want and we don’t really get judged for the number of people we sleep with. It’s hard to deny that our awkward anatomy does give us certain advantages.

    Now if only it would learn to stay down when you tell it to.

    It happens to the best of us. Sometimes you can feel it coming and you know you have plenty of time before you need to stand up. It’s those rare moments when you find yourself fighting a bulge in your pants, at exactly the moment you need to stand up and leave, that things get stiff.

    Maybe you’re on the train, minding your own own business reading a newspaper. You’re skimming through the pages, looking at a few stories as you go along, when you come across that one picture. You don’t know why or how, but this one picture stirs up instinctual desire in you and you suddenly find yourself flashing back into one of your old sexual memories. (More …)

    990 – Tripping Up In Front Of Strangers (The Scatter Trip) 

    Nothing ruins a stranger’s façade of dignity & grace likencrashing & burning in public. It’s awkward. Sure. But the worst fall to experience is, without a doubt, the Scatter-Trip

    You were probably in a hurry. Your bag was wide open, maybe you were searching for something. Your phone is wedged between your ear & shoulder and you probably had too many things in your hands. Why didn’t you stop walking to concentrate on what you were doing?
    But it’s at that very moment that you hit something. Maybe it a crooked tile on the pavement. You miss a step. Suddenly you find yourself fall face first onto the pavement. You try to compensate, but it’s too late, you come splashing down.
    Your phone hits the ground and dismantles itself (damn cheap phone!), the coins in your pockets scatter and your bag’s contents scatter themselves all over the street. Now you have to try and pick yourself up with as much dignity as you can master. You look up and everyone’s staring. Some jerk is laughing…there’s always the jerk who laughs. (More …)

      The only thing that can make this even worse is if the things you scatter are very personal; like a brief case of porn mags & dildos >.>
