It’s surprising how often I am mistaken as staff. As in “Do you work here?” or I wish people would bother to ask, but no don’t be ridiculous. That would make sense.
Today I was in my local supermarket and I had a man come up to me as I was waiting to pay for my one item. The man asked me if there was a rest room for the public there. Now, I don’t know any supermarket that do. It was not in a shopping complex and I imagine not, but I suggested the man ask a staff member.
I didn’t at all think I should be misconfused/mistaken as working these since I was sitting on my mobility scooter at the time.
A staff member came past so I asked her.
“Why yes they do.”
