Setting: Restaurant in Kingston
Background info: Ting is a Jamaican grapefruit soda
Waitress: Do do you want to drink?
Me: Diet Coke, please.
Waitress: No, sorry. No Diet Coke. You want a Ting?
Me, repeating my earlier order: Uh, yes, I want the grilled chicken sandwich.
Waitress: No, do you want a TING?!
(I thought she said, "Do you want anything?" and, for some reason. completely forgotten the order.)
Setting: Department store in Kingston mall, browsing in the clothing section
Staff: You t'rough?
Me: No, I'm still looking. Is the store closing?
Me: Is the store closing?
Staff, who is clearly smarter than I: No! (laughs) Are you TRUE? Are you alright, need help?
(I thought she asked if I was THROUGH and was telling me I had to leave the store. At 3 pm in the afternoon on a workday.)
Clearly I have a problem with the "th" in Jamaica.
