When people ask me if I work at my place of work!
I get this all the time! I'm standing behind the counter, folding merchandise wearing my lanyard, and people still come up and ask me "Do you work here?"
I know. I don't have a retail job anymore, but when I did, this happened to me at least once a day. It's totally the, "I'd like to get your attention, but I'm not considerate enough to do so by saying 'Hi' or 'How are you?;" customer strategy. Hate it.

Yep, I know how this is. Part of me always wants to counter with "no, I just really like reorganizing things and folding clothes."

People do this because the entitled moron working at the store is ignoring them and they are trying to get your attention. It's not intended to be annoying, it's intended to be insulting: you're not helping customers yet you appear to be paid by this establishment, you lazy moron. This is why you're working retail in the first place.
