Sometimes I have trouble remembering names so I’ll say “hey Bud how are you today?” or “hey Bud what’s up?” I hate when people do that to me. It’s so condescending but there was dementia in my family and I easily forget names. My family was also highly critical and judgmental so I’m usually thinking what’s wrong with the person physically when I first meet them so I miss their name the first time. I’m thinking wow what a big nose that lady has or this guy seems a tad overweight. My friend might say, “Jim, this is Bob” and the name goes right by me. Even a minute or two later I’m thinking who is this I’m talking to? If I see Bob a week or two later I’ll probably say, “Hey Bud”…
