    at least by the time you're in a dressing room banging someone in front of the 3 way mirror you don't have to worry about getting fired.

    i kid you not, but back in my twenties, i had a few women come up to me to have me try on a coat or two for their 'brother' or 'friend' who is supposedly my size. i would try it on and they would ask me to twirl around and they would say 'hmmmm looks good on you. looks really hot on you...ooohh wow. nice buns if you dont mind me saying'.

    would have been nice if they were younger women but it turned out most of them were elderly.

    I have also worked at a walgreens and no this is not their uniform wise-ass [​IMG]

    It's pretty damn close to what they wear at the Walgreens near my office. Was just there this morning... just a different color.

    Your either lying or your blind. No walgreens employee including the manager wears a black 3 piece with a tie. Hell I never even saw a corporate member wear a 3 piece. these are the uniforms of walgreens

    I could have sworn that your post said you were wearing black pants, vest, shirt and tie which sounds like it could be a uniform.

    Didn't catch the Jacket until later.

    Does this ever happen to you?

    It never fails... whenever I go browsing around at a store (Nordstrom's, Banana Republic, etc.) at the mall, people always come up to me and ask me questions like I work there.

    Happens to me sometimes, but I don't let it bother me enough to start a thread...[​IMG]

    Just consider that the people who mistake you for sales staff are probably more embarrassed than you are.

    ^ Generally seems to be the case. If they're nice about it I try to help them out anyways.

    I just start helping people who ask me now. I know more than the people that actually do work in the store anyway.

    It has happened to me, I usually try to give advice since the fellow behind the counter looks like he has no clue.

    Exactly what I do too.

    I've had women ask me to do this. Similar to you, they're usually older women who are trying to buy for their son or son-in-law who they think is my size.

    We were in the Gap on like 18th & 5th last weekend looking for some stuff for the boy and a couple walks in minutes after we'd walked in and started asking me for help. I think I scarred her for life. She and her husband walked away with a terrified look. It was awesome!

    in fact, i have done this to someone a couple of times.

    i would ask someone a sales stock question but the guy would say sorry i dont work here, it was no prob im sure to him being mistook for a sales guy, but it enraged the hell out of me. like..why couldnt he be the sales guy working there??? i almost wanted to deck him out cold.
