Every time I go to check in at a doctor’s visit, they ask me to repeat my name and DOB. In fact, I could sit down, they ask my name and DOB… and a few questions later, “can you please tell me your name and DOB?”
When I go sit for blood work, the nurse will initially ask me my name and DOB. After she prints the labels on the tubes, “can you please verify your name and DOB.”
So I was thinking… if they don’t feel weird asking me to say my name to them during our conversations together, then when I am having a conversation with someone I just met but forgot their name, I think I’ll try the same thing. …I’ll just have to wear scrubs to work functions from now on.
