reminds me of some rather disturbing sexting messages from a guy who apparently also knew my name somehow (and was calling me 'boy').... hadnt even given my new phone number to my friends yet... but i did enter it on facebook when it asked for it... removed it from there as soon as i could afterwards..

Pro tip: Doesn't work as well at family reunions
#200 to #11 - jaydarkwater (12/30/2013) [-]
It can happen. Many people, at least on my mother's side, have completely different last names. Hell, I live in a house where my mother, little brother and I all have different last names. It's a good question 'round these parts, especially if family trees interest you.
User avatar #232 to #11 - skinjacker (12/30/2013) [-]
Instead of saying that you meant their last name, say that you meant their middle name.
If they ask about why you want their middle name, just say that you're curious.
User avatar #76 - wacemindu (12/30/2013) [-]
"WHat was your name again?"


"no no your last name"

" why the **** do you want to know my last name freak? you've known me like 5 minutes... are you a stalker?"
User avatar #137 to #76 - xtwinblade (12/30/2013) [-]
why would you need to save yourself if you have just known the person for five minutes. It should be acceptable to ask for their name again within that period.
#236 to #76 - rakoom (12/31/2013) [-]
Coming up with a reply to that to show her off as twice as creepy as you is so easy it's not even fun.

"... Te **** kind of people are you hanging out with?"
And then start to leave.

"... What? No, you simply looked like someboy I thought I knew..."
Adding '...bitch' to the end is optional.
User avatar #243 to #236 - wacemindu (01/01/2014) [-]
Ahhh Yes....BURN, She truly will be shown up. Assuming she's maybe 12...

That's honestly the kind of weak neck beard **** that would have her laughing even harder in someone's face.

It's okay, they're grouped together and spreading the force a bit better. It's the single legos that end you.
#117 to #115 - xsolicitedsilkx (12/30/2013) [-]
I've walked across a small room with the floor covered in a three inch thick layer of legos (it was called "the play room" ) and it was a horrible experience.

"What was your name again?"
"You don't remember my name?"
"No no, i want your full name so i can add your number to my phone."
"Oh, {insert full name here)."

i have used this so far and it works.
User avatar #140 to #138 - funnyrage (12/30/2013) [-]
oh yeah, ask for the number after that.

"What's your name again?"
"What, you forgot it already? Asshole"
"N-no i m-meant your l-last name"
"Why do you want to know that?"
User avatar #130 to #27 - TheExile (12/30/2013) [-]
Just play it off.

"I was just curious", "I thought I recognized it", or even just saying you forgot it. If you're not a social wreck, it's very easy to dodge that question without making an ass of yourself. If you do, I'd suggest working on your social skills some.

Albeit, if someone is rude enough to act like that to such a simple/innocent question, they probably either don't like you or aren't the kind of person you want to hang out with.

Wow, if someone responds like that you probably don't want to be their friend.
User avatar #34 to #27 - lasmamoe (12/30/2013) [-]
Yep, i tried it 2 times. Both times, this happened.
User avatar #29 - merfmerf (12/30/2013) [-]
I've done it a thousand times, it works like an angel, and what you do is when they wonder why you'd like to know their last name, you just say, "oh i thought you were related to a friend/some guy i know/girl i know, nevermind then." Seriously, try it out sometime, but beware, does not work with relatives...

"What was your name again?"
"No, I meant your last name!"
User avatar #136 - tearsoblood (12/30/2013) [-]
I tried that once.

-Can you tell me your name?
-You don't remember my name?
-Oh, I remember your first name I just wanted to know your last name.
-Then what's my first name?

and all I could remember was his last name...

I just moved to uni some months ago and basically, I introduce myself to a lot of random people and vice versa. Then there's this guy whom I forgot his name, but I always call him "bro" and he always call me "bro" too.

Mfw I still don't remember his name for a semester
Mfw realizing that he probably forgot my name too
Mfw we both are too awkward to ask each other's name
Mfw none of my friends know who he is, so I can't ask them for his name
User avatar #102 to #74 - bookyle (12/30/2013) [-]
Ask to check your answer with his on an assignment. You exchange papers and now you both know each others name.

keep trying then. There are lots of opportunities if you are close enough to him.
User avatar #128 to #74 - keltainenlumi (12/30/2013) [-]
I know it sounds stupid but you could just man up and ask him....
User avatar #141 to #74 - funnyrage (12/30/2013) [-]
hey man, how did you spell your name again? this girl asked me on Facebook.
okay thanks, i know a guy whose name has an "a" instead of "o" and its pronounced the same.

or something like that.

so the above content just doesn't work, does it
User avatar #23 to #20 - Midirr (12/30/2013) [-]
I think you missed the point of the content.
First of all, you already know this person (probably from the past somewhere) but you just can remember their name.
Secondly, you first ask for their name (they will give you their first name and feel a bit disappointed that you didn't remember).
And then you save yourself by saying: "No no I knew that, I was asking for your last name."

They won't feel bad any more since last names are harder to remember and at least you 'knew their first name'.

User avatar #13 - fuzzlefeenix (12/30/2013) [-]
This is too widely known now, every time I've tried to use it the other person has known the trick and given me that sad look of "I know you don't know my name and you're trying to use a trick to be polite."
After these experiences I decided to go with "What's your name on facebook so I can add you?" which works most of the time, unless they have a weird-ass facebook name.
User avatar #15 to #13 - genderless (12/30/2013) [-]
That's bad to hear

On facebook, what if they just say "It's my real name." :|
User avatar #44 to #15 - isenseven (12/30/2013) [-]
Then you can say you don't know/remember their full name (most people don't expect people to remember their last name).
User avatar #16 to #15 - fuzzlefeenix (12/30/2013) [-]
hmm, not sure... that's not happened yet.
