As an undergrad university student, I worked as a supervisor at Barnes & Noble. Countless times per week I would have customer service experiences that left me looking for a shank, but these two particularly stand out in my memory.

customer 1: Yeah, I be lookin' for a book.
me: *blinks* Yes, ma'am. Which are you looking for, in particular?
customer 1: Ah, I dunno. A book on chest.
me: I'm sorry. What are you looking for?
customer 1: Chest! You know! The game. *mumbles*
me: Oh, chess. Yes, ma'am. Right this way. *walks*
customer 1: Damn, these is a lot of books on chest.
me: Yes. So, what topic are your researching, in particular?
customer 1: You know, like, not when you're bad and not when you're good...
me: Intermediate. Well then, here's the Russian Master's Guide for improving your skills.
customer 1: *opens book and looks at English text* No, I don't want no book in Russian!

customer 2: Hey, you got them books? You know the type with words up in it?
me: *blinks* Yes, ma'am. We have plenty of books that aren't in audio format.
customer 2: No! You know! Them books about words and stuff.
me: What do you mean, a dictionary?
customer 2: Yes, that's it!
me: Sure, right this way. *walks*
customer 2: Which one should I get?
me: I'd recommend the Oxford Dictionary.
customer 2: *looks confused* But this one says Oxford American dictionary.
me: Yes. There are the British and the American versions to choose from.
customer 2: What? I don't speak no British! I speak English. They different.
me: *continues speaking in her English accent* Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?
customer 2: *blinks* So how long it takes to read this book?

Idiot Guy: Have you ever seen one of those Saskatchewatch things?
Friend: What?
Idiot Guy: Saskatchewatch.
Friend: Yes, we're in Saskatchewan.
Idiot Guy: No, no, no, the big hairy thing.
Friend: Your mom?
Idiot Guy: No, the other one.
Friend: Umm... Oh! You mean Sasquatch? Those don't really exist.
Idiot Guy: How do you know?
Friend: Well, I don't but there's no solid proof that they really do exist
Idiot Guy: So they do exist!
Friend: No.
Idiot Guy: But you just said that there's no solid proof that they exist!
Friend: Exactly!
Idiot Guy: So why would you think that they didn't exist?
Friend: Because nobody can prove it!
Idiot Guy: But I thought you said that there was no solid... oh.

She teased him endlessly.
