Who, me?

I was in the home supplies store, buying a 2x10 & some spikes to make a plank bridge, when these two ladies came up to me and asked where something was. I explained that I was a customer, and they seemed disappointed. (Note: all the employees in this place wear red vests. I wasn't wearing one.)

This happens to me all the time. I'll be standing around in a store, and strangers will come up to me and ask for help. I'll be walking down the street, and someone will ask for directions. I'll be part of a group doing a tour or something, and they'll go right past the actual group leader to ask ME what we want to see.

I guess it's a leadership gift of some kind; either that, or just natural arrogance. But it's weird. For an introvert, I don't fade into the background very well.
