    (A mother and her young daughter approach the counter. She puts down Princess Mononoke and begins to get out her card.

    Me: “I’d just like to point out while this is an excellent movie, it’s probably
    something you’d be uncomfortable with your daughter watching.”

    Customer: “Why? It’s just a princess cartoon!”

    Me: “It’s actually quite violent, it deals with a lot of complex subjects, and has scenes with realistic sword fights, there’s several dismemberments in the first few minutes. But I can recommend several other movies by the same animation studio that both of you could enjoy.”

    Customer: *slightly taken aback* “Um, yes, that sounds like a good idea, I wouldn’t want her to be scared.”

    Customer’s daughter: *to me* “What’s a dismem-peppermint?”

    Customer: “Don’t answer that!”

    Customer: “I had a question about this one movie.”

    Me: “Okay, what’s up?”

    Customer: “How blurry is it?”

    (I am surprised for a moment, but then think maybe she is referring to movies in 3D, sometimes those look a little blurry.)

    Me: “Pardon?”

    Customer: “Well, it says here that it is blurry and if its too bad I do not want to rent it.”

    Me: “Oh, let me see it.”

    Customer: “Do you have any other copies?”

    Me: “Ma’am, this copy isn’t blurry. It is in Blu-Ray, the new format designed to replace DVD movies.”

    Customer: “Oh, alright.”

    Me: “Do you have a Blu-Ray player?”

    Customer: “What is that?”

    Me: “I’ll just grab a DVD copy of the movie for you.”

    A Complete Avatard

    | Phoenix, AZ, USA | Uncategorized

    Customer: “Do you have any copies of that new Avatar movie?”

    Me: “Sorry it looks like it’s not available anywhere right now. I could call you when a copy comes in if you like.”

    Customer: “You didn’t check the back room. Do you have any there?”

    Me: “No, we don’t keep movies in the back. Company policy says we have to have all available copies on the shelf.”

    Customer: “So, why don’t you have any on the shelf?”

    Me: “Because we’re all checked out. There are none present at this store or any other in this area. It’s an extremely popular movie since it just came out a few days ago. We have no more copies at any nearby store.”

    Customer: “Why not?”

    Me: “Well, they all got checked out by other people.”

    Customer: “Well, why the h*** did you let them do that? What kind of video store lets people just take whatever movie they want?!”
