"In a perfectly legal manner is how!"]]

Some characters, most probably [[CloudCuckooLander unusual ones]], are participating in [[HilarityEnsues wacky hijinks]] on their way through the town and decide that they need to go shopping for something, be it mundane, supernatural or just plain crazy. They bust into the store, acting and looking absolutely and completely out of place (and most probably also being totally obnoxious). They get weird looks sent their way, some people sneak out just in case, most customers are stunned with the sheer audacity of the scene.

Cue the Super-Stoic Shopkeeper. He/she will [[TheStoic pay absolutely no heed to the hijinks]], serve the customers in a composed and orderly fashion, maybe suggest a thing or two the characters might also want, ask whether they prefer to pay with cash or a credit card and basically do anything else they would do for a regular customer.

This happens because perhaps this is [[IsItAlwaysLikeThis a regular occurrence to the shopkeeper]], or they've SeenItAll and it'd be really hard to surprise them, or maybe they're an AlmightyJanitor or someone had them ReassignedToAntarctica. Or maybe they're a disaffected teen who just can't be ''bothered'' to care. For whatever reason, anyone and everyone is just a regular customer in their eyes and has to be treated accordingly.

In a video game, they're likely to put up with anything short of [[KleptomaniacHero shoplifting]] or attempting to get a BallisticDiscount, at which point they will [[ShopliftAndDie rain down all hell upon you]].

Shopkeepers might not care about who the customer is; see NoHeroDiscount.

[[folder:Anime & Manga]]
* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'' gives [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Isaac and Miria]] coming into a hat store and acting like absolute children, ''then'' trying to be intimidating while paying the clerk. He pays little heed and counts out their change. Of course, it ''is'' a store where TheMafia buys their hats.

[[folder:Films -- Live-Action]]
* ''Film/{{Borat}}'': One of these visibly restrains himself when Borat asks what type of gun is best for killing Jews. He then suggests a Desert Eagle (an ''Israeli'' weapon).
* In ''Film/RoboCop3'', an elderly hotel receptionist barely glances at the [=RoboCop=], who enters with a naked gun and asks which room the villain stays in. The receptionist answers and gets back to his newspaper.

* The gun shop owner in ''Literature/{{It}}'' reacts perfectly calmly when the Bradley gang (who are topping the nation's most wanted list) just walk into his shop and order thousands of rounds of ammunition. Of course, this being by Creator/StephenKing, what happens when they pick up their order is not so pleasant.
* ''Literature/NeedfulThings'': Leland Gaunt doesn't even flinch when his customers are heavily underdressed. Then again the trope applies to him for [[{{Chessmaster}} his own]] [[HumanoidAbomination twisted]] [[LetsYouAndHimFight reasons]].

[[folder:Live-Action TV]]
* ''Radio/OurMissBrooks'': Mr. Fisher in "Mr. Fisher's Pawn Shop," played by the indomitable Frank Nelson. He doesn't get upset in spite of the wacky hijinks going on all around him.
* Averted in ''Series/{{Angel}}'' when Darla, after slaughtering most of the occupants of a clothing store, tries to enlist an employee's aid in selecting shoes. Since she does nothing but whimper and try to crawl away, Darla [[NeckSnap kills her]] and complains about the service.
* In an episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', the same room service guy keeps coming to a hotel room which contains, at various points: Niles and Lilith, Frasier and Lilith, and Niles and Frasier, in various states of undress. They're working through the fallout of Niles sleeping with Lilith. His response to everything is a bemused-but-stoic "OK".
* Korean series ''Series/FortyNineDays'' features Yi Kyung, the BrokenBird who is introduced as a Super-Stoic Shopkeeper getting robbed. She doesn't react to robbery, and even [[DeathSeeker tells them to kill her when she's threatened.]]
* Comic shop proprietor Stuart in ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'' and the way he deals with the parade of ill-adjusted nerds, sociopaths and weirdos who comprise his clientele. Not even Sheldon Cooper fazes him. Much. Although he can be panicked by a pretty girl. (He's had less experience in dealing with pretty girls. Or ''any'' sort of girl). And even then, he handles it better than his [[HollywoodNerd regular customers]].
* Granville (sir David Jason) in sequel series ''Still Series/OpenAllHours''. Having inherited the corner shop from the deceased Arkwright, he approaches life with a calm Yorkshire stoicity.

[[folder:Video Games]]
* In ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver HeartGold and SoulSilver]], the player character spends some time dressed up as a Team Rocket grunt. Every NPC in the city gets new dialogue to reflect this, with most of them expressing either fear or anger. The exceptions are the employees at the local department store, who continue to treat you like a regular customer. One of the other [=NPCs=] even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this.
* In ''VideoGame/{{ADOM}}'', you can have the weirdest mutations from the corruption of Chaos, but the only one that bothers shopkeepers is the aura that scares away customers. That this one does bother them shows [[DevelopersForesight it's probably a deliberate choice]] to have them ignore the others. Of course, a shop in this game might be halfway down the Caverns of Chaos, so it's only to be expected.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Burger]][[EmbarrassingNickname pants]] is a jaded washout working for a [[MeanBoss narcissistic, delusional robot]] in a BurgerFool restaurant that doesn't even sell real burgers. If he serves an OmnicidalManiac player character who's cut a bloody swath through the underground, the extent of his reaction is to complain that he still has to come to work even when everybody's dead and how he "only gets the freaks". He's so sick of his job that even when threatened by the player, he says he can't go to hell as he's "all out of vacation days".


* ''ComicBook/AtomicRobo'': In a flashback, when Doctor Dinosaur (who is, it should be noted, a talking dinosaur) shows up at a science fair with uzis.
-->'''Robo:''' How'd a dinosaur get ''guns!?''\\
''[One Week Ago...]''\\
'''Alonso:''' ''[of "Alonso's Gun Hut"]'' 'Fraid I'm gonna have t'see some I.D.\\
'''Dr. Dinosaur:''' ''[holds up a book labeled "Big Book of Dinosaurs", flips it open to a page showing his species]''\\
'''Alonso:''' Awright, let's ring y'up.\\
''[end flashback]''\\
'''Dr. Dinosaur:''' In a perfectly legal manner is how!


[[folder:Web Original]]
* RealLife example via ''Website/NotAlwaysRight'': [[http://notalwaysright.com/courage-under-hire/22826 Foiling an armed robber with annoyed exasperation.]] {{Subverted}} when he [[DelayedReaction realizes after the fact]] what just happened and experiences a mental PostVictoryCollapse.

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'':
** In the episode [[Recap/TheNewBatmanAdventuresE23BewareTheCreeper "Beware the Creeper"]], right after being drastically changed by a vat of chemicals and Joker's laughing gas, ComicBook/TheCreeper busts into a vintage clothing shop, makes a mess of the place trying to find some clothes to match his new appearance. Clients run and scream. The woman behind the counter says, completely deadpan, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny "With your skin color, I'd go green." while handing him a pair of underpants]]. After picking up a few more bits of costume ("How about the boa? Too much?!" "Not on you, baby.") he pays with his credit card.
** In "The Man Who Killed Batman", the bartender remains calm as the place [[BarBrawl gets turned upside down by a brawl]] started when another hoodlum decides to pick a fight with Sid (who had supposedly killed Batman) to [[VillainCred pump up his reputation]]. Given that the place is hosting a criminal party to celebrate Sid's triumph, this might be justified as the sort of thing that happens there all the time. The one thing the barkeep does is sneakily slide a glass bowl off a table and onto one man's head, so maybe he ''enjoys'' these fights.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In ''The Cartridge Family'' Homer goes to buy a gun from Bloodbath & Beyond. The clerk remains completely nonplussed, even when Homer repeatedly fires an unloaded handgun in his face and threatens his life for imposing a waiting period.
-->'''Homer:''' I'd kill you if I had my gun!
-->'''Clerk:''' Yeah, well, ya don't.
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'': In the episode 'Lion 2: The Movie', after Connie and Steven defeat the Robot Shooty Thing, they buy movie tickets with a pink lion and deadly weapon in tow. The ticket-seller is only slightly weirded-out by all this
--> '''Steven''': Two kids and one lion for Dogcopter 3.
--> '''Ticket Lady''': ...do you have a rewards card?
* ''WesternAnimation/TheTick'': Most shopkeepers in The City will be either this, or in [[ThereAreNoTherapists therapy]].
* In the ''WesternAnimation/WanderOverYonder'' episode "The Nice Guy", the cashier at a gas-station convenience store is a snarky teen who is, at most, mildly annoyed by Wander's antics trying to buy Sylvia a Thunder-Blazz.
* In the ''WesternAnimation/WeBareBears'' episode "Primal", after his brothers go mad with hunger on an ill-planned HorribleCampingTrip, Grizzly hijacks a parked car and drives them to a nearby fast-food restaurant. The cashier at the drive-thru window not only effortlessly translates Panda and Ice Bear's maddened growls into an order, but is completely unfazed by the sight of three bears (two of which are viciously mauling each other in the back seat) paying for the food.
