Yes, I don’t work here.

I most supermarkets, people assume that I work there.

It’s really quite amazing. I am frequently asked for help, very specifically with questions and language that point to me as being an employee, with not a second thought about it.

The best part is, normally I do answer their questions, and make a joke, or do something to make them smile … and then they person often walks away never knowing.

Sometimes I mention it at the end of the conversation – if the person is paying attention, or not in a rush to move on.

I think it’s because I look helpful.

On purpose.
