INT. SANTA MONICA REI – DAY
CASEY is browsing the selection of microfiber towels. His bag is stuffed with gear for an upcoming backpack and accessories for his new bike. A woman approaches him.
Excuse me, do you work here?
Oh no. Sorry.
It is not the first time I’ve been mistaken for an REI employee. It will probably not be the last. Does this happen to any other hikers?
