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" :bsmilie:

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.
