Most Memorable "Guests"

Ok, so let's try this again...
Today I decided to *try* to remember some of the dumbest guests I have ever seen.
I have had people get into an all-out argument with me disputing where Target was AS I WAS CASHIERING! They left still not believing me, I guess the nametag, shirt, and billions of signs everywhere wasn't enough of a clue.
One lady asked me how to get out of the store. She looked like she was going to cry. We were up by the front lanes too. Scary...
I watched this guy walk right into the NON-automatic doors. That was the loudest thud I've ever heard. It was hilarious.
Some old guy asked me how to spell 'Target'. If you can't spell Target, maybe you shouldn't be writing checks.
Being that I'm at a SuperTarget, we carry groceries. Occasionally we'll get someone asking if they can pay for their groceries at the registers. (They think the grocery store is seperate for some reason.)
Outside, while walking into the employee entrance, some people were perplexed on how to get into the store because it says employees only. Some think Expect More Pay Less over one side is a Payless Shoe Source, and Grocery over the other side is a whole other grocery store.
I've had checks made out to all different kinds of places. Mostly Wal-mart and the local grocery store. I had to convince one guy he was in Target, not Wal-mart. Maybe the RED was a clue? And that the store is CLEAN?
The guy who couldn't operate a telephone. I had to tell him where to find his account number, what a pound sign was, and what a zip code was. I was amazed.
Getting asked where they can return something as I'm standing at Guest Service.
Getting asked if there is a Target in a major city in another state. YEAH! Target IS a national chain.
We had this woman argue with us for an hour and a half because she was trying to return an expensive camera 6 months after she had purchased it. We only have a 90 day return policy, and our computer system and refund authorization would not allow it, so she thought if she argued with us, that it would magically change things.
We had some drunk guys urinate in the men's clothing section. Definitely ruined a bunch of clothes, but we made them pay for it. They also got arrested. We don't play games.
I love the countless times that people say they'll never shop at Target again, and yet I see them a week later.
I've been asked if US currency comes out of the ATM.
I've had multiple things thrown at me because of a policy.
One guy threatened to call the cops because we couldn't do his return.
I know I'm leaving some out, but I'll try to remember. My memory and I don't get along too well.
