I Do Work Here, Does Not Work Here

| Right | November 27, 2014

(I am working in a popular clothing store chain. I notice a woman browsing so I approach her.)

Me: “Hi there. Can I help you find anything?”

Woman: “Oh, that’s very kind of you, but I’m sure I can flag down a staff member soon.”

Me: “I am a staff member.”

(She looks at me, somewhat shocked.)

Woman: “You?! You don’t look like you work here at all!”

(I laughed and showed her my store ID. She blushed and apologised profusely. This actually happened on numerous occasions over the time I worked there. Every staff member looked quite similar: bleached blonde hair, long fake nails, tight, revealing clothing, and sandals or heels. Then there was me: naturally dark blonde, wearing the most subtle and body covering clothing the store carried, and sneakers. It was no wonder!)
