Many (including me) are oftentimes baffled by a Filipino's positive answer to an appointment or to instructions given only to discover later on that the same individual did exactly the opposite without cancelling the appointment or asking questions regarding the clarity of the instructions.
An average Filipino will say "yes" when:
1. He does not know.
2. He wants to impress.
3. He is annoyed.
4. He wants to end the conversation.
5. He half-understands the instruction or what is being said.
6. He is not sure of himself.
7. He thinks he knows better than the one speaking to him.

Usually the Filipino agrees weakly instead of giving a flat refusal of "No." Siguro nga, Marahil, Pipilitinko ("Maybe," "Perhaps," or "I'll try") are his usual answers to questions to which a Westerner would really say "No."

This is because of the Filipino desire to please in spite of the negative response. To interpret the meaning of this "I'll try" or such similar vague answers, requires only a little persuasion to change the "I'll try" to a reluctant "yes" or an apologetic "no."
