Dialectal Differences

I just had a rather amusing experience today at our mini grocery. I can't help but share!

Customer: Isang kahang Fortune ho. Sigisteen?

Me: Po?

Customer: Sigisteen?

Me: Ano po 'yon?

Customer: Sigisteen!

Me: Ah... (realising he probably means 'sixteen', I confirm the brand) Fowchoon?

Customer: Ha?

Me: Fowchoon?

Customer: Ano 'yon?

Me: Fowchoon! (hands over his pack of fags and says) Thank you, come again!

LMAO. At least, mine is a legitimate pronunciation!
