I feel for ya. In high school and college I tended to go around in polo shirts and khakis, just because I thought that they looked more professional without having the high cleaning bills or monkey suit factor of more formalwear. And yet people were ALWAYS asking if I worked whereever I was, no matter what the official employee shirt color was. I guess that people just have a natural predilection that tall clean-cut guys with glasses will invariably end up in retail. That's just weird.

I suppose it could be considered a compliment, but always considered it an insult to their intelligence. Genuine retail employees generally have nametags and aren't wearing sneakers. Did anyone notice this? Nope. Never.
