Have you ever shopped after work or during your lunch break with your uniform on? I think it can get really funny sometimes.
I like to shop around after work but I'm too lazy to bring a set of clothes along to work. So I always ended up shopping in my Prima Deli uniform.
Incident 1 : I was shopping for a mothers' day card after work. I have this habit of walking lots of rounds while trying to decide which item to get.
As I was walking around, lost in my own thoughts, someone approached me asking the paper was used for baking.
At first, I actually thought that she might be asking me because I work at Prima, and they thought I should know it. But on a second thought, they may have mistaken me as the Popular staff instead. Not to mention that the uniform are quite alike.
Incident 2 : I was talking with Ben on the phone while walking around Watsons one day after work. Right after I hanged up the phone, this china woman asking me where the make up sponge is placed.
I told her I'm not sure and suggested that she ask the staff at the counter. Then she tried to steal a glance of the logo on my uniform. I really thought she was asking me because I was the nearest to her. =.=
Incident 3 : I was wandering around CompassPoint as usual. This time, I was looking at the cute Disney stuffs at ValueShop when this auntie suddenly appear beside me, asking whether they sell nail polish remover.
I believe this time I can be pretty sure that she mistook me as one of the staffs there.
It can be really funny while shopping in uniforms. People just think you are one of the staffs, no matter how different the uniforms are.
