I get the, "Do You Work Here?" question a lot! I used to just look down at my name tag and say "apparently so" with a grin when people asked me that. I've found a little gentle humor allows you to call custys idiots without them getting offended.
It's funny how some people just can't figure this out.
There was one time my hubby and I were going to a wedding and he decided at the last minute that he needed a different tie. Fair enough. We stopped at Kohls on the way there. He was dressed in smart pants and shirt, I was wearing an ankle length silk skirt with a silk bodice top and had my hair and makeup all done up.
Some woman comes up to me and asks where the Juniors department is so I told her I really didn't know. She started giving me all this cheek about how I should know and she was going to complain to the manager, getting really worked up.
I told her I was sure he'd love to hear about her harassing his customers. Cow didn't even apologize, just stormed off.
We've all had these! Whether we're in uniform or as a customer with our purses and kids in tow, in grungy clothes, or wearing Bullseye colors in Hellmart. Let's hear your dumbass "Do you work here" stories, or just give us a list of comebacks! firstname.lastname@example.org
