Canada is a great nation, but it gets visited by its fair share of idiots, and sometimes produces them as well! If you want to know how stupid customers overcome the metric system, or those funny Canadian coins, then read on!
Me: “Good evening, sir. How can I help you?”
Guest: “I need change for a $5.00 so I can leave the maid a tip.”
(The guest hands me a Canadian $5.00 bill and I open my register and take out a ‘toonie’ and three ‘loonies’ and hand it to the guest.)
Guest: *blank look* “What is this?”
Me: “That is change for $5.00.”
Guest: “Is this real?”
Me: “Yes, sir.”
Guest: “Are you kidding me?”
Me: “No, sir. I assure you that is Canadian Change for five dollars.”
Guest: “Is the maid going to understand what this stuff is?”
Customer: "Why is my credit card being denied?"
Me: "Is it an American credit card?"
Customer: "Yes, I’m from Texas and I’m traveling to Alaska."
Me: "Credit card companies sometimes block purchases made in other countries if they don’t know you’re traveling."
Customer: "But I’m not in another country."
Me: "This is Canada, sir."
Customer: "But it’s on the way to Alaska."
Me: "I know sir, but it’s still another country, so you probably need to call your credit card company."
Customer: "What stupid country is this?!"
Me: "Actually sir, it would happen with any country you travel to because it’s a safety feature for your own security."
Customer: "Well, if Canada wasn’t in the way of Alaska, this wouldn’t be a problem!"

(The customer’s total is $9.67. She hands me a ten dollar bill and three Canadian quarters.)
Me: “I’m sorry, ma’am, I can’t accept this change.”
Customer: “Why not? It’s 67 cents and I gave you 75.”
Me: “Right, but this is Canadian currency.”
Customer: “So? They’re still quarters.”
Me: “Right, but they’re Canadian Quarters. I can’t accept foreign currency.”
Customer: “Canada’s not foreign! It’s in America!”
