To be honest, it's probably good that they ask because more than once I've been stopped in shops and asked "do you work here?" when I did not :p

With me, people didn't stop. They just proceeded to ask me about grocery and shopping stuff to which I replied: I. DON'T. WORK. HERE.

That's how stupid people are.

Full trolly load at Tesco. Nothing else on my person. "Do you want a bag?" No mate, I was gonna carry it in my magical invisible kangaroo pouch.

Alternatively, my friend who works in DFS. A customer bought a sofa. "Can I have a bag?" In what universe are you carrying a sofa in a bag.

I've been asked that on multiple occasions at places like Rasputin and Newbury Comics. I guess the metal head look does wonders there. I'd applied to both several times in the past, but only got one interview.

EDIT: I also hate it when I'm discussing movie and/or video game sequels/remakes with people, and I hear them say things like "Times have changed, stop living in the past." As if the veneer of chronological snobbery impresses anyone. Not all changes are for the best. Marry the spirit of the age, and you will soon find yourself a widower.

I sometimes get that one when i'm at Tesco's doing my shopping.

11 years ago when i was working at a hotel for a summer job i overheard one of the staff telling someone else about the annoying things people say over the phone, whenever the phone at reception rings they answer it and say the hotels name and how may i help you and the person at the other end of the phone says back to them what they said for example is this hotels name in such and such a place.

Another time long before i started working there an american checked in and went up to his room half an hour later the phone at reception rang it was the american saying he couldn't get out of his room.

The person at reception was most likely :confused: anyway they told the guest to walk towards the bathroom and just past the bathroom door is the door to your room, he went and checked and said i see the room door there is a do not disturb sign hanging from the door handle :vlol:

*dark circles under my eyes and walking like a zombie through the hall*

"Are you tired?"

^That reminds me of when someone asks me if I'm sleepy after seeing me yawning in class at 8 o'clock...

To quote Australian Comedian Carl Barron:

*person points at clock*

"Is that the time?"

"Nah mate, it's a hamburger, have a bite."

:pi:

"I could care less". Dumb because 99% of the time people actually mean "I couldn't care less".
