I recently had a conversation with someone who referred to himself in the third person. It was the first time we’d met and it was at the beginning of our first conversation. I was so taken aback it took me a full minute to realize the name he was using was actually his name.
Unfortunately the rest of the conversation was not very memorable but there was really no way he could top the way it started. And oftentimes I forget people’s names as soon as they tell me but his I will never forget.
It’s funny how a mixture of arrogance and nervousness can leave such a lasting impression.
