Me: “Thank you for calling [theater]. How can I help you?”

Caller: “I had three coupons, but they flew out the window. Is there anything you can do for me?”

Me: “No, I’m sorry, without the actual coupons there’s nothing we can do.”

Caller: “Are you kidding me!? I’ve been driving thirty or forty minutes to get there!”

Me: “I’m really sorry, but there is nothing we can do.”

Caller: “You are so rude! Is there a corporate number I can complain too.”

Me: “You can go on our website and file a complaint.”

Caller: “Well, can I complain to you?”

Me: “You already are.”

Me: “Excuse me, do you need help?”

Customer: “Yes, actually. Would you happen to know what a good game for a seven year old boy? I need a present for my grandson.”

Me: “Well, you could always go with a classic Mario or Pokémon game.”

Customer: “Well what are those about?”

(I give a very general description, explaining the basics of the concepts since she was obviously new to video games.)

Customer: “Oh, I don’t know. Those sound very violent to me.”

Me: “Well, they’re very popular games, especially among young boys.”

Customer: *thinks for a moment* “No, I think those games are too violent. I’ll just get him this one.”

(She picks up the latest Hannah Montana game for the DS and walks off.)

Me: “Oh, do you have an ID with you?”

Him: “Um…”

Me: “An ID?”

(He hands me his room key and smiles.)

Me: “This isn’t…”

Him: “I know.” *walks sadly out*
