When greeting people, say, "Hello, (YOUR NAME), I'm pleased to meet you." They would reply, "Hi, (THEIR NAME), haven't seen you in a while." No need to remember their name anymore. Nice and Neat.

       You should try this with your class for a few days; maybe you'd learn their names quicker.

       People already do this all the time: "Hi, I'm Chris." "My name's Mike; pleased to meet you."

       Thanks, RayfordSteele, you're the guy with class.

       As [snarfyguy] points out, people do this already and, in fact, I think it's common for them to drop the "Hi" or "my name is" part altogether.

       Two psychics reverse greeting:
"We haven't met. You're Mr. Nice, you're glad to know me."
"And you're Mr. Neat, pleased to meet me."

       " Hello Mr and Mrs Tidy Garden   

       How are those children of yours what were their names again ?..oohh thats them, Neat and Nice "
skinflaps, Nov 22 2002
  

       "Hello, *thumbwax*, I'm pleased to meet you."

       Sure would make those conversations with schizophrenics entertaining. I wonder if they'd ever let anyone else join in.
