“I Don’t Work Here” With A Christmas Twist  

, , , , | Right | December 23, 2020

It’s a couple of days before Christmas and I’ve gone to the superstore to grab some Christmas and birthday wrapping paper, as I still haven’t wrapped my girlfriend’s presents and her birthday is two days after Christmas. I get in the store and immediately find birthday wrapping paper, but none Christmas-themed. As I keep walking around the aisles, someone stops me.

Customer: “Excuse me, sir. Where did you find the Christmas wrapping paper?”

I’m wearing a black sweatshirt and khakis so it’s hard to mistake me as an employee.

Me: “I don’t work here.”

Guy: “Oh.”

The guy seemed to get flustered and walked off. After the fact, I thought about how he’d asked me and I realized he probably didn’t actually think I worked there; he just saw me with wrapping paper, probably assumed it was Christmas, and thought I might know and I just instinctively told him off. Oops.
