I am the single greatest secret keeper.
You can tell me anything and I won't tell a single person. Not one.
In fact, odds are good that I will have forgotten your secret before you have even finished telling me.
Somewhere in between looking for the best exits / weapons in case of a zombie outbreak, thinking about how funny you would look without a nose and tapping my foot because I want to start talking but screaming over the top of you isn't socially acceptable - I'm not listening to a damn thing you are saying.
This is GREAT for secret keeping.
Not so great for remembering important things about people.
Like when I get to work and I ask how people's weekend went. And they are like, "Um, I was in Egypt for four weeks. Didn't you notice I wasn't around? I mean, we share an office and everything."
The worst is when people tell me something big and important.
"Hey there Rick! What's new?"
"Narm, we talked for over 2 hours yesterday, remember? I was drunk and breaking down. My wife left me. I lost my job. My doctor gave me some horrible new. My kids won't talk to me. I have this super annoying hang nail."
"Dude - you would look SO weird without a nose. Like, seriously, whoa."
