I have had the same problem and finally had a Thai person explain their misunderstanding.


I said sip-et. They heard sip eight. That's right. They understood me to say sip (10) in Thai and eight (8) in English. So, they came up with 18. So, how some one could think I said part of a number in Thai and part in English is beyond me. So, apparently at least part of the solution is to shorten the et so it is not understood to be eight.


This is also the only time I have a problem with a Thai number.
