I did yesterday. I was asking this Mexican guy how much the flowers he was holding cost. He said "is a 5 doller" I said "a doller" he said "no five dolla" I said "Oh I don't think i have that much" he says "no 5 doller?" I said (accidently) "no, i no have 5 doller" I felt kinda bad, luckly I dont think he heard it.

i do.. make of funny or out of this world accent. especially hearing native people who try to speak English or even plain tagalog. i can't help it but to laugh at them. not actually showing it. but hearing them on TV, really it's a laughing out loud manner.
