If you're in Target and you happen to be wearing a bright red shirt and khaki pants, you aren't allowed to be offended if someone asks you if you work there.

Just sayin' is all...

I was wearing calf-high silver doc martens, black cargo pants and a purple t-shirt that said "13" on the back and a lady asked me if I worked at OfficeMax. I wasn't offended, I was confused.

yes... that's clearly OfficeDepot attire.

I was once with soemone who was wearing a black skirt and a black and red rubber corset in Office Depot and someone asked her if she worked there.

Me, just about everywhere I go I get asked if I work at whatever place I happen to be standing. I guess I just look like a retail employee. Either that, or I don't walk around with that "What's going on here?" glaze that most people have in their eyes.

Now that could be it. We exude a sense of awareness of our surroundings.

That corset sounds familiar.

That's happened to my wife. I mocked her for wearing khaki pants.

Actually, I was wearing a khaki skirt. But really...These things never happen when I go to home depot wearing my orange apron, or when I go to foot locker wearing my referee's shirt.

Heheheh... that's a great idea. Like a whole new fashion trend for you. You should get a collection of uniforms from various pop-culture obvious stores and restaurants and wear them all the time. McDonalds outfits, K-mart smocks, the god awful Old Navy outfit. It could be like your thing...

The scary thing is I could assemble all of those with a very brief phone call. But it's a bit too... sheik for me. donald != fashion maven

khaki is ok sometimes... in fact, one of the things I really adore about Target is the manner in which their uniforms allow for personalization. Here's a basic color scheme you must obey so that we all look like a team, but please feel free to individualize within those specifications. It reminds me of an early New Mutants comic or something...

Hmmm... I've been using my outkast icon for fashion talk, but I invented it for parties... I'm going to have to add a fashion icon.

Khaki is eh. Pants are worse than eh.

I was in a department store in Seattle once, this was during my violet hair phase, so I certainly didn't look like a retail employee. Anyway, this old guy stopped me to ask where the childrens department was. I was like "I don't work here. I've never been in this store in my life before today, so I can't help you."

He got so pissed at me! He actually yelled at me in the middle of this store until I wander away. Freaky old people.

Same outfit for Circuit City. I happened to be standing in front of the video cameras waiting for some folk and this guy starts asking me about the diff between VHS-C and DV. I didn't even stop to think why he was asking me before I launched into an explicit rant about A> VHS-C and B> the general shit quality of all the cameras in for sale at CC. I managed to wrap it up with something about how he should quit being a cheap bastards and go spend the $1500 for a passable 3 chip camera from another store before he walked off to complain to the manager. I guess the upsell was a little to aggressive.
