WWYD - weird/awkward/funny situation

I'm sitting in the airport waiting to board a flight. A woman sitting in the same area waived to me and said "hi. Small world! Where are you going?" I made small talk with her but I have NO idea who she is! Lol. I thought maybe she would say something g that would remind me (and even if I don't remember a name I almost always recognize a face ). I feel bad but I really just have no idea who she is

maybe she doesnt know you and that was her "icebreaker" to start a conversation with a stranger.
i would have probably said "do i know you?!" lol

No - she's sitting a couple of rows a away in the waiting area, not right next to me and made a point of waiving across the airport

Chat Icon Awkward!!!

I would just leave it as is...you shared where you are going, she shared where she is going...and hope that one day in the near future, someone in your friends/family circle will say something like "hey, I heard you ran into _________ at the airport!"

And also scroll through your FB feed and see if anyone you kinda-sorta know has checked in recently at the airport. Chat Icon

LOL! I must look like someone else in town cause I get random people coming up to me and talking to me all the time. Sometimes I look confused and they tell me where they know me from (and it is usually a place I have never been, although once it was a place I go with my kids....). If they seem really invested, I just go along with it and try to exit the conversation ASAP. It is AWKWARD though!

She is probably mistaking you for someone else.

Id totally admit it nicely
"Im so sorry I think its the environment - out of my daily routine - and my mind is on my trip, but I can't place you at all right now." I'd still be friendly regardless. I would just clarify I felt foolish for not remembering. :D

ETA: to be honest I really am HORRIBLE with names and faces! out of sight out of mind! I had coworkers I spent 3 YEARS with say hello to me once I stared blank back until they said the company name and it flooded back! Chat Icon

Funny thing is she said she was going to her nephew's wedding. We are doing the same - so at first I thought she was a family member (DHs side) that I just didn't remember meeting. But it's a different wedding!
