    (At the bookstore where I work, we sell tickets for local events.)

    Customer: “Hi. I’d like tickets.”

    Me: “Alright, for which show?”

    Customer: “I don’t know. I heard about it on the radio today, but I can’t remember who it is.”

    Me: “Did they say when the concert was?”

    Customer: “Um…”

    Me: “Was it coming up soon?”

    Customer: *shrugs*

    Me: “Do you remember anything at all about it?”

    Customer: “I think the guy’s name was…” *spews out a couple syllables as he tries to guess a name*

    Me: “Is it ***?”

    Customer: “Yeah! That’s the one! I want tickets for that show!”

    Me: “Unfortunately, that show is tonight, and it’s been sold out for the past week.”

    Customer: “Huh?”

    Me: “There haven’t been tickets available for a few days now.”

    Customer: “You’ve got to be kidding me! I’ve been waiting ages to go see this show, and now you’re telling me I can’t? This is ridiculous!”
