(I am in college and working at a small restaurant over the summer. It is mid-afternoon and only one other person is working. A man comes in carrying a winter coat and a radio, but no backpack as one might expect if he were homeless. He uses the bathroom and then comes up to me.)
Customer: Can I have a packet of ketchup?
Me: Um, sure…here you go.
Customer: Is that you in that picture?
(The picture on the wall is of the owners, a married couple in their 40s.)
Me: No, those are the owners.
Customer: It is you!
Me: No, it’s not. It’s the owner, and her husband, the other owner.
Customer: Are you SURE? It looks just like you!
Me: …I’m sure.
(Customer leaves without buying anything.)
