Who?

OK. Here's something that bugs me: when people talk about other people like I know who they are.
"Bobby and Liam are coming over for dinner tomorrow night and then we're all going over to see Jennifer, Mike and Jason."
"Laura told me that she's pregnant!"
"I can't believe how old Emily is looking these days. I mean, she and Kevin have only been together for 19 years!"
Excuse me!! Who exactly are Bobby, Liam, Jennifer, Mike, Jason, Emily and Kevin? I don't know them!
Can I get some context please?

I have a coworker who does the same thing! Drives me crazy!! "Jason went to Duluth this weekend."

Yeah? So? Who is Jason?

You'd think my confused facial expression would give it away. Apparently I need to work on that!

UGH! I am guilty of doing that. I always think every one knows each other.
