Eyesight Only As Good As Hindsight

(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.”
