On people who object to being mistaken for clerks

When people object to being mistaken for clerks, you know what they think of clerks. (I've been a clerk and been mistaken for one.)

I shared that comment on Facebook. To my surprise and delight, people began telling about times someone had mistaken them for clerks.

Perhaps the most useful advice: Jonah Earl Thomas said, "If you just tell them Aisle 3B they'll go away."

Perhaps the funniest: David Cummer said, "I was once mistaken for a mechanic at a gas station and thought "I have just achieved the goal of many a gay man from the 70s"."
