I've not only got a good memory for faces, but also the ability to not get recognised in the street by people I've known for years

Oh, except by super-recogs like bomber
I'm similar. I recognise people from my school in different year levels who I haven't seen in 20 years but noone even remembers who I am.

I like it like that.

Had to have a covid test this morning with flu like symptoms popping up.

Have rung around and canceled a bunch of appointments I had this week and one campaigner made me pay a $10 rescheduling fee cause I’ve got the audacity to be smart enough not to rock up there with flu-like symptoms and care about not screwing over other people who could lose money if they have to isolate

like 2 days isn’t enough notice you fu**buckets?
I couldn’t give sh*t about $10, but charging people to reschedule during a pandemic is ******* gross behaviour.

Surely 24 hours notice is more than enough

Think I'm feeling the effects of sun stroke.

How do you guys resolve an issue at work with your umbrella girl? There were a few times between takes where I think my coverage could have been better.

(in case yous haven't already noticed, I'm gonna be flogging this horse til it's decomposed, which is about another fortnight. For the first time in a long time I have something to gloat about)

Anyway, back to JimmyBC and his My Name Is Earl reboot.

I reckon I'd recognise you. (IIRC, I think we established that we went to the same school)

I have an uncanny ability for facial recognition, even to the point of picking someone's siblings that I've never met before.
I can do that too, yet also can't remember the names of people I meet like five minutes after I met them.

Just rock up then. Tell them the test was positive, but you're soldiering on.

Except bragging about conquests with the opposite sex is extremely tacky and incredibly bogan.

Find something a bit lame then overstate your importance within it to epic proportions if you want to be edgie.

Like having a one episode non speaking role in an Aussie TV series for washed up Home & Away actors that left for Hollywood in unsuccessful attempts to become the next Heath Ledger/Chris Hemsworth.

No sh*t though, I did actually have my own trailer and person to hold an umbrella over me, and that was an unbelievable experience for me.

I like it like that.
I’m the exact opposite - everyone seems to remember me but I don’t recall them. I’m like a leaf floating on top of the current of time.

Like the time I was in a tattoo parlour in Hindley Street cause my friends wanted to get nipple piercings and the girl behind the counter, with more piercings and tats than a bikie, goes “Hey, don’t I know you from somewhere?”

“Err, do you?”

“You went to such and such college, didn’t you?”

It was at that point I realised who she was. If I was how I am now, I would have handled that situation a lot differently, cause she was trying to talk to me but I was a babe to badness at the time.

Didn’t help that one of my friends passed out from getting a piercing at that point, either.

I had a similar experience walking down some random street in Copenhagen years ago. Dude comes up to me and says:

Him: "Hey, I think I know you."

Me: "Probably not."

Him: "Didn't you go to Adelaide Uni."

Me: "Ummm ... okay."

I sometimes have guys I haven't seen for 15 years recognise me from junior footy, but the pretty girl I had a crush on and talked to a bit in year 1 (is it appropriate to talk about a 6 year old like that? I mean I was 6 as well at the time) who left town for like a dozen years then returned in late high school didn't know me from a bar of soap.

I imagine she knew bars of soap better than me actually. Her hygiene would have been beyond reproach.
