Do I Have A Sign On My Head?

It just happened again:

I'm in Home Depot, shopping for a new patio shade. I'm dressed in a blue t-shirt and shorts, no orange apron, no name-tag.

But this guy looks at me while pointing at an umbrella, and he asks, "How many colors does this come in?"

"I'm sorry," I say. "I don't know."

"Can you ask someone?"

"I don't actually work here," I reply.

"Well, why didn't you just say so?" the guy says.

I apologize again and go on my way.
