New research from OnePoll finds what Americans are most embarrassed about forgetting. It turns out, forgetting someone’s name is more embarrassing for Americans than forgetting a significant other’s birthday. The survey gave respondents a list of forgetful moments then asked them to select which they ones they find most embarrassing. 32% of the 2,000 Americans polled thought forgetting someone’s name is the most embarrassing moment. The research also discovered that the average respondent draws a blank about six time a week. That adds up to 332 forgetful moments per year. This can take a toll on relationships!
