comment Difference between the questions 「男じゃないんですか?」 and 「男じゃないですか?」
厳密に言えば、両文とも、イントネーションによって意味やニュアンスが変わるような気がしますが、発音の説明はしにくいので、今回はパスで・・ 真面目に考えていると気が‌​変になりそうなタイプの質問です。

comment Meaning of 半分間違っているんじゃないかなと思う部分があるから、アメリカチック,アメリカナイズされすぎているっていうか。
Thanks for the context. This sentence (one starting with 半分), however, is still extremely ambiguous. I, a native Japanese-speaker, could not tell for sure who is being called "too Americanized" or even "half-wrong". It is not common for many Japanese to consider working hard to be an American thing. If this is important, even more context will be needed to decifer it. (I am personally more than surprised to hear this was in a textbook.)

comment Subject and beneficiary of 〜くれる
The whole "2nd dialogue" souns so unreal -- the way 店長 speaks. I cannot even picture the scene. The only 交換所 I have seen in my life have been located right next to pachinko parlors. Is this happening on OUR planet? I could probably post a decent answer if I tried but I just cannot empathize with the dialogue.
