A dissenting opinion:

I think people should just wear name tags at parties.  That way you don’t have to remember people’s names and you can learn them slowly as you talk to them.  You could wear name tags at meetings, too.  Don’t you think that’s a good idea that would solve the problem?



Name tags are tacky.  Not just in appearance, but in utility.  The markers smudge all over, the stupid little borders, the nasty glue they use to adhere them to your clothing…everything about them is just appalling.

So no, no name tags for you.

Or how about this…if you want to wear a name tag, go ahead.  But don’t expect everyone else to wear one.  Deal?

Again, I think we have a duty to remember people’s names.  It’s up to you to figure out how to do that, and delegating the work to other people is not acceptable.

Try again.
