So I'm at K-Mart earlier today and the second I walk in, this lady asks me for help.
"Ehhhh, como say, ehhh." I promtly set her straight. "I don't work here," I informed her. "Ohhhhh, you no work here?" she repeated all disappointed. I mean, don't department store workers usually wear uniforms?
Minutes later, I saw this lady rearranging shoes. She didn't have a uniform, just a red polo. I needed help with something, but rather than assume, I asked, "excuse me, do you work here?" It turns out she did. Barely two seconds later, some douche who was but two steps away when I asked my question started asking me for help. "Sorry, dude. I don't work here," I told him. Mind you, I had my red funkyminds t-shirt on. Why would a dude with a red shirt with a skull holding two mics be working at K-Mart?
Interestingly, the two people who mistook me for a K-Marter were latinos. But I'm not sure if that means anything. What about you guys? Any of you been mistaken for an employee rather than costumer before?
