(My partner and I were just wrapping up a shopping trip to a well known retailer whose employees wear red shirts. We had a full cart of items, he was wearing a plaid shirt and camo trousers, while I had a grey t-shirt, black pants, and backpack on. We decided to use the self checkout, when another customer turns toward me)
Other customer: “Hey.”
(I was talking to my partner at this point, and barely noticed the customer)
Other customer: “Hey!” (louder this time)
Me: “Yes?”
Other customer: “Do you work here?”
(I pause for a moment, confused)
Me: “umm, no?”
(Other customer looks at me with the most confused look I have ever seen, then turns back to his purchases.)
