The worst is when manners dictates that you introduce a third party to someone you might have known for years (neighbor, dog Parker, eg). What I do, as I do sometimes in similar cases when it is just me and the forgotten-name person: "what is your full name again?"

Thus, with luck they'll say Joe Smidlap, even though you don't care about the Schmidlap.

The real worst, I suppose, would be the case in _Seinfeld_ where you forget the name of the person you're necking with.
