I now understand why people wear pajamas and house shoes while shopping at Walmart. However, If you really want to draw attention to yourself, wear a red shirt with tan pants to Target. If you are caught in this situation, you have two options: Tell them you don’t work there, or try to help them out anyway, such as…
- Direct them to isles that don’t exist
- Recommend certain “personal” items, and explain you’re using as we speak.
- Lead them around the store, searching for items that don’t belong, like looking for grape nuts in the camping section
- Recommend the wrong TV shows for kids, like getting Dexter confused with Dexter’s Labratory
- Rummage through their cart and say things like, “Wow, I thought this was recalled”
- Offer unwarranted advice like: “Seems like you should be looking for the prescription strength deodorant or some age defying make-up”
- Offer to check in the back stockroom, and never return.
- Say that you’re a manager, and you don’t “stoop” to the customer level.
Same could be said for a blue shirt and tan pants to Best Buy. If you are a tech guy or know anything about electronics, you will probably help them more than the people that actually work there.
