Blue smocks? Aren't they just ventors? Red smocks are employees, right?

I'm sure there would be a long line for Walmart greeter jobs. They're good at that now. I was in there today and the same person greeted me 3 times.

Re: Home Depot Is Filing For Bankruptcy!


I guess they are red.

Red means STOP!!! Don't talk to me, I don't want to help you and if you do approach me and ask me a question, I will have a worthless or otherwise dumb answer.

I think the brown smocks are for the senior employees who have honed their skill of being mute and completely avoiding eye contact with anyone resembling a customer.
