Random Loiterer: "Are you new?"
Me: "No, I've worked here for almost a decade."
RL: "I haven't seen you before. Where's the woman who works here?"
RL: "And the other guy?"
Me: "There are a few other guys, but the other guy who worked on Tuesdays was just covering for me for a while."
RL: "A while? I've been coming here for months."
Me: "I was gone for January and February."
RL: "Two months vacation? Must be nice."
Me: "I was in a coma."
RL: "Oh. Uh. Sorry."
