Customer: “WHY ARE ALL YOUR TOWN NAMES STUPID? CAN’T YOU SPELL?!”
Me: “Sir, please don’t shout. The town names around here are in Welsh, because you’re in Wales. I’m sorry if this offends you.”
Customer: “It’s not just offensive. It’s f***ing stupid!”
Me: “Sir, please don’t swear. The town names are part of our unique history. They tell us about our heritage.
Customer: Well your heritage f***ing sucks.
Me: Sir, can I actually help you with anything, or did you just come here to tell us that you don’t like Wales?
Customer: You all need to be more English. *leaves*
Coworker: Well… at least you didn’t need to ask him to leave!
(Over the span of a month there are several university students going through orientation. We have a deal for the orientation groups in which they receive coupons for our theater, one of which is a deal for concessions. They get a popcorn, a drink, and a candy for $7. This is clearly stated on the coupon, and yet many of the students are confused about how it works.)
Customer: “I just want a bottled water.”
Coworker: “All right, that’ll be $2.50.”
Customer: “But I have this coupon and I just want a water.”
Coworker: “Right, so that will be $2.50.”
Customer: “But I got this coupon for free.”
Coworker: “Even if you used the deal on the coupon you would still owe me money, but since you are just getting water it will be $2.50 instead of $7.”
Customer: “But I got this free coupon.”
Coworker: “You still owe me money.”
Customer: “But I just want a bottled water. I don’t want popcorn.”
Coworker: *turning to my manager* “I really don’t think it should be this difficult to understand.”
(The girl still didn’t understand but she paid for her water. Despite this conversation the other students were still confused as well.)

(I’m working the drive thru late on Saturday night. I’m 17 at this point. A group of older women, presumably on a cougars’ night out, have come up to the second window and have paid. I hand them their drinks.)
Me: “Your food will be right out, ladies.”
Woman: *in the back seat* “Show him something!”
(I think I know what she means, so I’m not particularly keen to hand them their food when it comes up. Sure enough, when I go to give them their food, EVERY woman in the car has exposed her bare breasts.)
Me: “Here’s your food. Have a good night!”
(I immediately closed the window and fled. I could hear them laughing as they drove off. What a show for a 17-year old…)
(I am working the tablet display counter when a man walks in with his wife.)
Customer: “So, what’s the difference between these two tablets?”
Me: “This one has a faster processor and is better for playing video games or watching movies.”
Customer: “Good, because I’ll need the larger screen to watch all that po-… uh, party supplies…”
(At this, I can’t keep it together. The wife promptly collects her husband and leaves. As they’re leaving, he says…)
Customer: “I wanted to look at party supplies, honest…”
