It's ridiculous. I'm buying bananas at the grocery store and I get asked if I work there. I'm not even flying the colors.
How should I respond? Bonus points for most clever comeback.
That is strange. Maybe there's someone who works at that store who looks like you. People used to come into my girlfriend's store all the time and say "Oh you work here too". There was a girl who worked at a restaurant across town who looked similar.
Some weird chick at Walmart asked me I knew how to tell if a pineapple was good or not. I'm already extremely awkward, so whenever a stranger talks to me, I get even more awkward. As for what to say to the people who keep bugging you, just tell them, "No, I'm a stripper." That'll get 'em to quit buggin' you.
That only happens to me at Hot Topic, FYE, and Gamestop. I usually help them by saying,
"If you had some glasses then maybe you could see that it is on aisle 4 and you would be able to see that I don't work here. I'm not even wearing the uniform or the badge." (+)
@russellmania77: I thought the stereotype was Asians were smart and graduated college and had GOOD jobs?
That's the American stereotype about Asians and it goes a long way in the important areas, such as employment, especially from the prospective of African Americans who suffer the opposite stereotypes. I'm thinking, they're just trying to irritate you, since they're probably really assuming that you're a computer engineer.
