Sorry, Dude...I Don't Work Here

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?

Maybe it's the fact your old K-Mart Employee of the Month plaque is still up? You real should tell your old manager to take that shit down already, especially after you got fired for stealing all them Viagra pills.

normally i'd slam my ace of spades square on the table and yell "RACE CARD!"

but in this case you had on a red shirt in K-Mart.

that's like wearing a zebra-striped polo in Foot Locker. someone's gonna ask you for help.

that and you're black... so you have to be working there, right?
