It's called 'retail face' and you are afflicted with it! It happens to me all the time. I've worked retail all my life and every once in a while I'll be in a store somewhere (not where I work) and someone will approach me and ask 'Do you work here.' hate it!
I must have a real nice retail face. They usually just assume with utmost certainty that I work in whatever store I happen to be in and just walk right up and demand help. It's usually little old ladies. I think I'll stop being so nice and kind and getting things off high shelves for them and instead just yell "Scram, ya old bat!" at them.
Sometimes my daughter acts like a blond. Yesterday we had gone somewhere, and the baby fell asleep. She was still asleep when we got home, and my daughter went to get my grandson off the bus. The baby had woke up, so I got her out of the car seat. When my daughter came in the house, she asked, "How did she get out of the car seat?"
I just gave her a look, and walked away...
My poor dear wife had a hernia during her last pregnancy so her tummy still has a bit of a bump to it. People are always asking her when the baby is due. Usually she'll gesture at the kids and say "They're already here!"
Ive been on both sides of an equation. Saw a friend I hadn't seen in awhile, figured she'd gained weight and wasn't pregnant and wisely said nothing, the next time, saw another friend, assumed that she was pregnant, and blurted it out. Same person, two different ends of the pendulum swing.
I was at the gas station the other day and I paid at the pump but had to go in the purchase something else and the lady behind the counter asked if I needed gas. I told her I paid at the pump and she asked outside?
"What is the efficacy of banning these magazine clips? I will tell you. These are ammunition, they're bullets, so the people who have these now, they're going to shoot them, so if you ban them in the future, the number of these high-capacity magazines is going to decrease dramatically over time because the bullets will have been shot and there won't be any more available."
--U.S. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colorado)
focking idiot! She's been introducing bills in Congress to ban magazines since 1997; by now she might have learned at least something about them.
Be afraid...be very afraid. I suspect Ms DeGette will spend a lifetime in Congress. We get exactly the kind of government we deserve.
