Same. Not sure why. I also have bad facial memory.
Maybe you just didn't care enough to remember those things. It happens to me too, I can't remember the faces of people I talked to once or twice, and I deliberately try not to think about things from the past that make me feel uncomfortable.
I have a meager memory but it's primarily due to trying to suppress all the bad memories I have.
Mine's fine. Unfortunately I'm a bit better at remembering trivial interesting things than everyday things.
