at the newly opened Joy Avenue Foodstore:
little girl was lingering while there were no customers. my brother's kumpare was there, who incidentally has the same family name as ours so the hubby calls him 'insan (meaning: cousin).
'insan came over the softdrinks fridge, calling out 'nay pahingi ako ng royal. (<-softdrinks font="">-softdrinks>
bayaran mo yan ha, said the little girl. so she thought, by saying "pahingi" the guy was literally asking for it for free.
ayoko nga bayaran. bakit ko babayaran e pinsan ako ng may-ari?
e ako nga anak ako ng may-ari nagbabayad ako e.
ayoko pa rin bayaran, 'insan taunted her, laughing as he said this.
the little girl, obviously pissed, retorted, ta-taekwondohin na kita. marunong ako mag-taekwondo. lumalaban ako ng lalaki, tumatalo ako ng lalaki.
to which 'insan and everybody within earshot started laughing. and usually, when she's laughed at, the little girl gets really annoyed. she said, naiinis na ko sa yo. iiyak na ko! then broke down in tears.
