A Bit Creepy

Today at work I was standing next to the counter, as I always do. It's a neutral spot from which I can see most of the store any keep an eye on my customers. As I was standing there, an older gentleman (65+) walks up to me and mumbles something. I couldn't understand him, so I asked "Did you have a question, sir?" in my best 'happy shop-girl' voice.

He looks at me and replies "I was wondering whether you worked here or if you were for sale, I was going to ask you how much you cost."

I laughed politely... Mostly because I had no idea whether to be flattered or insulted.
