I can't remember people's faces, even right after I just saw them. I memorize body shapes and hair styles in order to recognize people I know but it takes time and isn't a perfect system. My husband of two years got a hair cut without telling me (only about an inch) and stopped by the coffee shop I worked at and I didn't recognize him. My coworkers assumed I was giving him the cold shoulder, but I just didn't know I knew him. I've also had a boss that had the same hair color/style and body shape as another man in the building. Several times I would ask the wrong person questions about projects I was working on. I don't know what my face likes like and can't remember what my daughter's face looks like. It is all very embarrassing. That is my confession!
