do people in stores ever comment about your purchauses?

Haven't made a question topic for a while, but here's a new one because of an amusing event tonight :p
A while ago, I posted the topic "do you ever get embarassed by your Pokemon collecting hobby?", but this time is slightly different: do you ever get remarks when you buy your pokemon stuff? Usually I don't and I just get rung up at Target, TRU, etc and go on my way (or in TRU's case if I need a gift receipt, but I think they ask everyone anyways), or once some guy at Target was like "Pokemon! Awesome! Haven't played the games for a while!" Today though, was interesting...




I used to be embarassed about my hobby, going into toy aisle, picking out cards, etc but I've grown since then and all my close friends and stuff know and everything. They bug me sometimes but whatever :p Anyways, today I checked out Target and picked up a Jakks figure (they got new ones in finally and on sale! ...missed out on a plush again though v_v) and a promo pack of cards I've been looking for. I also got a pack of supplement vitamins in gummy bear form (only because I forgot to take the pill-forms often) and maybe that was the icing on the cake :p The cashier looked like she was early 20s or so, and looked like she was trying not to laugh! I kept glancing back because I wondered what she was smiling about, and she even asked "is there a problem?" because I was looking over alot. I shook my head with a "nope". And was curious: did I make HER embarassed for ringing up Pokemon? 0_o I've long gotten over my embarassment, but she was WAY too smiley! I doubt she was a collector though, or else she would've said something or not make it an awkward situation for... herself >_> I dunno, I thought it was funny :p Not like she knew it was for me either, could've been a gift or something, but I dunno...
Also, I used to work at a department store before and I've seen far weirder stuff go through the till, and I dunno I never questioned it or laughed (well, there was one time I sure wanted to :P) A non-kid buying Pokemon isn't weird to me >_>

So have you gotten anything similar from people who you've bought from? Or perhaps it was like the one guy who commented on how cool it was?
