    Default Interesting incident

    I was this funny incident in OP today. The Mandarin speaking Malay sales girl was talking to a customer, a guy in his 50s.

    Customer: The Nikon 70-200 how much har?

    OP: Three zero five zero

    Customer: No, no, I am talking about the 70-200.

    OP: Ya, three zero five zero

    Customer: *In shock, cannot parse*

    OP: Three thousand and fifty dollars.

    Customer: Can't be. So expensive?

    OP: 70-200 Nikon right? Three thousand and fifty dollars.

    Customer: *silence, in disbelieve*

    The customer must be thinking he stepped into a "black shop"

    The funny part is "Three zero five zero"

    000 + 00,000 = 00,000,000

    The lens costs you nothing.

    Funny or not?

    I think the customer said "70200 how much har?" without the "to" in the middle.

    Girl says 3050.

    Customer thinks she said 30-50?

    Wild guess.
