I work for a retail garden center in my hometown, and wear a denim vest bearing our logo. After work one day I stop at a local drugstore to pick up a snack, while still wearing my work vest. I was standing in an aisle contemplating when an elderly customer approached me:

Customer: Excuse me, can you tell me where I can find *some random item*.

Me: I’m sorry Ma’am, but I don’t work here. I work at *retail garden center*.

Customer: Oh… Well, do you have your water plants in stock yet?

Me: Indeed Ma’am, we do.

Customer: Wonderful! I’ll be in next week!

Me: Sounds good, Ma’am.

(Customer wandered away, hopefully to look for someone who actually worked there)
