    Me: “Good morning! ASU Information.”

    Caller: “Umm, yeah, hi. Where am I?”

    Me: “You have reached the ASU information desk. How can I help you?”

    Caller: “No. I mean, like, where am I?”

    Me: “Could you be more specific please?”

    Caller: “Dude, I don’t know where I am. Can you find me?”

    Me: “Are there people near you?”

    Caller: “Um, yeah.”

    Me: “Do any of them know where you are?”

    Caller: “How do I find that out?”

    Me: “Walk up to one of them, smile, and ask them if they know where you are.”

    Caller: “Okay, thanks!” *fumbling around, muffled talking, phone beeping* “You are so awesome; it worked! Thanks!”

    | New Jersey, USA | Geography, History

    (My university has a very long winter break which allows me to work over the holidays. I am working the Christmas season when a customer begins to make small talk.)

    Customer: “What high school do you go to, sweetheart?”

    Me: “I am actually in college and am just working seasonal.”

    Customer: “Oh! Where do you go?”

    Me: “The University of Delaware.”

    Customer: “What state is that in?”

    Me: “Delaware.”

    Customer: “Yes, honey, I heard you but what state is that in?”

    Me: “The state is Delaware.”

    Customer: “When did Delaware become a state?”

    Me: “It was the first state in 1776.”

    Customer: *stays quiet for the rest of the transaction*

    Customer: “Do I have signal where I live?”

    Me: “I would be happy to check for you. What is your city and state?”

    Customer: “I live in Alamb-ma.”

    Me: “What is the zip code where you live in Alabama?”

    Customer: *gives me a zip code*

    Me: “That zip code is a Georgia location. You wanted coverage for Alabama, correct?”

    Customer: “Yes, but I don’t know the zip code, so I made one up.”

    Me: “That’s fine. Let’s try searching by city name instead.”

    Customer: “It begins with T-A-L-L…but…I don’t know the letters after that.”

    Me: “Why don’t I just pull up the map for the entire state for you…”

    | Missouri, USA | Geography

    Customer: “I need to know where you’re located. We want to visit the one in Quebec.”

    Me: “Okay, we actually don’t have any locations in Quebec. We do have Toronto which is in Ontario, and we have Calgary which is in Alberta.”

    Customer: “Um, I think it’s Tor—…no. I think it’s Calgary. That’s right.” *talks to someone in the background* “Wait, I guess it’s the one here in Denver!”

    Me: “You’re in cinema number four. It’s up the stairs to your left.”

    Patron: “Which way?”

    Me: “Left, and then go up the stairs.”

    Patron: “Which way’s left?”
