Working On Getting Groceries Only

, , , , , | Right | February 5, 2021

I’m out doing my grocery shopping. An older man enters the aisle I’m in, and we both browse in silence for a few moments, until…

Old Man: “Do you know where the [item]s are these days?”

I have a vague idea of where they are, so I try to be as helpful as I can.

Me: “I think they’re two aisles over.”

I point in the direction I think the items might be.

Old Man: “They’re always moving things around and putting things in weird places!”

This store has recently gone through a minor reorganization so I can understand his frustration. I just nod and make a vaguely sympathetic noise, and he wanders off in the direction I pointed him in.

I don’t think any more about it until it comes time for me to check out, and I end up in line directly behind the same man.

Old Man: *Seeing me* “Oh! I’m sorry, I thought you worked here!”

I look down at my black tank top, black skinny jeans, bright pink hair, and shopping cart full of items.

Me: “Um… no. No, I don’t.”
