    When I was 18 or 19, I was working for a petroleum station supply company. We sold new gas station stuff like pumps and tanks and did installations. We had a job at this station where we were installing all new gas pumps. They were having some leaking issues (this was the late 70s and the stories I could tell about how much leaking gas there was at every station would frighten you) so we had to break out the islands and replace pipes in the ground as well as replace the pumps. We were at this site for at least a week and had the place completely torn up. There was a convenience store at this location that was still open but all the gas islands were closed and barricaded.

    So anyway, I am down in a hole where the old pumps used to be working on the pipes. A guy pulls up in his car, gets out and looks at me in the hole and says, "fill it up." I said (without laughing my ass off), "sir, there are no gas pumps, it's going to be a couple of days until the gas islands are open again." He said, "well, I'm never coming here again" and got in his car and drove off.

I think that's why I still have a nervous twitch in my eye.
    I once walked up behind someone in Target who was wearing khaki pants and a red polo and asked her a question. She turned around ... no name tag. Not a Target employee. I was a bit embarrassed.

    It always annoyed me because so many people would see me working at the store I was employed by and ask me if I worked there, but to this day I can be out shopping at other stores and people routinely ask me for help. And it's not the same people because the store I used to work at is in a different town from where I live. I guess I just look like a helpful guy.
