This happen awhile back when I worked at a KFC. I just got off work and needed to pick up a few things at a Kroger (the "K" in both names are significant). I was wearing my KFC uniform with KFC on both sleeves and chest and a baseball cap with, you guessed it, KFC on it! And after working 8+ hours I smelled like fried $%^&@#% chicken from 10 feet away! You couldn't possibly mistake me for a Kroger employee... right? Nope.

AP = me
CL = Caper Lady

I was looking at an item in one aisle when I heard someone behind me clearing their throat. I turned and CL was just glaring at me. I thought I was in her way so I said sorry and move over a bit...

AP: Sorry (moves over)
CL: Excuse me!
AP: Huh?
CL: Where are your capers.
AP: My what?
CL: (huffs) YOUR. CAPERS. WHERE. ARE. THEY?!
AP: (dawns on me that she thinks I work here) Sorry I don't work here, but capers should be where they keep the pickles.
CL: I looked there and they weren't there. Where are they?
AP: I said I don't work here. I work at KFC (points to the big bright colored letters on my hat and chest)
CL: THAT (tapping the K on my chest) stands for Kroger you idiot! Now, where are your capers?!
AP: This (pointing at each letter) stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken. NOT Kroger so I don't work here!

Before she could say anything else I walked away before I said something or do something I'd regret later. CL yelled after me and tried to follow me around the store but I lost her.... down the pickle aisle :lol: I was curious if capers weren't really there and went to check. They were there :rolleyes:

Be glad the customer didn't respond "No! It stands for Kroger's F***ing Capers". After all, a SC's view of reality is too badly warped to be explained by LSD.

When I told the story to coworkers they all agreed CL must have been on something to act like that :lol:

It does! :lol: KFC was one of my first jobs. When I hit 15 my parents agreed I should get a job. I wanted something like a boutique shop in the mall but nooooooo! They thought if I got a job at KFC they'd get free chicken! I absolutely HATED working there! Every time I came home I smell like fried chicken! :cry:

What's really infuriating is that she called you an idiot when she couldn't understand a simple declaration from you. What is so hard about "I don't work here"?????

"It's a rat turd."

"It's a caper!"

"A rat turd."

"A caper!"

"If it's a caper...eat it."

my answer to people who automatically assume I still work at the grocery store (quit 4.5 years ago...) is to point them in some random direction with explicit instructions like "aisle 7, about 10 feet in on the left 3rd shelf up from the bottom next to the (some random product)" and then wander off as they thank me. It's just easier than trying to explain I do not and have not worked there in a long damn time.

Also works at the local home despot when I'm grabbing supplies for a project at home.

After reading someone's story here, my answer, if asked, will always be "Aisle 42, next to the towels." :D

When I used to manage a Jack in the Box, I'd sometimes go shopping at Wal-Mart after work and I would constantly get confused for a Wal-Mart employee by people asking what aisle various products were on. It was especially baffling because my management uniform - black slacks, light blue long-sleeved shirt, tie with Jack in the Box logo pattern, black sweater vest, and badge that says "JACK IN THE BOX" on it in big letters - looked nothing whatsoever like any uniform that anyone at Wal-Mart has ever worn.

I'd like to imagine that after the OP's conversation, that customer marched up to the front end and demanded to speak to a manager about the rude employee that was pretending to work for KFC.

I used to work at a KFC like you. I worked as a cook, so I smelled even worse like chicken after a full shift. But the tradeoff is not having to deal with customers.

And my answer,just to entertain,will be 'Aisle C'.
