We get those too.
I mean, besides the people who think the word "jank" is a clearly communicative all-purpose noun. Like in sentences like, "Give me one of those beef janks," while gesturing vaguely towards a grill that holds hot dogs, beef sausages, and taquitos.

But my pet peeve is the people who just refuse (or are unable) to speak clearly.

"Do you sell pankars?"
"I'm sorry, I missed that."
"Pankars."
"Um, I don't know what that is."
"Pankars. PANKARS!"
"I guess not."
After a few minutes looking around,
"What's that behind you?"
"These?" as I pick a package up off the shelf.
"PANKARS!"
"Oh, playing cards. Yes, we sell those."
