The Most Embarrassing Thing to Forget

Forgetting someone’s name after being introduced to them is more embarrassing than forgetting a significant other’s birthday, according to new research. The survey of 2,000 Americans found 32 percent believe forgetting someone’s name is the most embarrassing blunder – more so than even forgetting a partner’s birthday (22 percent). Results found the average respondent draws a blank about six times a week – adding up to 332 forgetful moments per year.
