    Eyesight Only As Good As Hindsight

    | Anamosa, IA, USA |

    (I don’t work here. I am wearing work boots, jeans, and a muscle shirt, not anything close to the employee dress code. An elderly woman wearing glasses approaches me looking confused.)

    Customer: “Excuse me.”

    Me: “Yes?”

    Customer: “Can you help me find epoxy?”

    (Having just been in that section, I decide to just show her where it is.)

    Me: “Uh, sure. Follow me.”

    (I take her back to the hardware department and explain to her the different kinds and recommend one for her.)

    Customer: “Thank you so much.”

    Me: “You’re welcome, Have a nice day.”

    Customer: *adjusts glasses* “Oh my, you don’t work here, do you?”

    Me: “No, I do not.”

    Customer: “Well, thank you again sir.” *walks off*

    (My buddy comes by at this time and asks what I was doing.)

    Me: “Helping an old lady. I hope she’s not driving.”
