Running into someone whose name has slipped your mind is never a comfortable experience, which is where 'The Rules of Forgetting Someone's Name' comes in. The hilarious illustrated guide by Christie Young of GOOD.is takes you through the awkward steps of unexpectedly seeing someone who seems to know you a lot better than you know (or remember) them.

Acting as more of a support system than an actual how-to guide to avoiding those uncomfortable situations, Young mixes humor and an extremely realistic situation for another hilarious addition in the 'Rules' series. I've definitely found myself in almost the exact same situation, trying to find a ripe avocado at the grocery store and being surprised by an overeager, friendly acquaintance.
