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!"

(A tourist is in line to get a ticket.)
Tourist: “Can I have a ticket to Loogahgbaroogah?”
Me: “Sorry, where?”
Me: Sir, there is no rail station in the UK called Loogahbaroogah.”
Me: “Did you mean Loughbrough?” (It’s pronounced ‘Luffbruh’)
(The tourist gets his ticket and walks off, followed by the next customer in line.)
Next Customer: “It’s a good job he didn’t want my ticket. Return to Llanelli, please.”
(I work at a historical site of the civil war, dressing and acting as if we were still in that time period)

Tourist: “This place isn’t very interesting.”
(I work in a small store in Oxford when a busload of tourists comes in to buy large quantities of sweets.)
Tourist: “We’re stocking up. We’re going to Stratford-on-Avon to see Shakespeare’s house.”
Me: “Okay, but why don’t you just buy it when you get there?”
(Several tourists stop what they are doing.)
Tourist: “They sell candy in the 16th century?”
Me: “Thank you for calling the [hotel]. How may I direct your call?”
Customer: *in a British accent* “I need a room for tonight.”
Me: “I’m sorry, sir, but we are booked.”
Me: “It’s the 4th of July. We’re always booked on the 4th.”
Customer: “I know the date! Why are you booked?”
Me: “Um, it’s July 4th.”
Customer: “Listen, just give me a room!”
Me: “I’m sorry sir, we are sold out. The entire town is sold out.”
Customer: “The entire town? Why?”
Me: “Sir, it’s the 4th of July. Independence day.”
Customer: “Independence from what?”
Me: “Um, England.”
Customer: “Oh bloody h***!” *click*
