Someone uses that means different from what you normally think of.

Example: My grandma uses the word "thongs" to mean flip-flops/sandles. Kinda wierd when she asks if you wear "thongs".

So Pit, anyone else have experiences like this?
Obviously Fassa.

Weird, your grandma asked me if I wore thongs too...


And I don't think she was referring to my flip-flops.

Faggot. We term it to be a derogatory term about gays, when in fact the man on the cover of Led Zeppelin IV is clearly carrying a faggot.

I went into a fish and chips shop a few days ago and I told the person that I wanted cod and chips.
then she read the order back and said so you want chips and dog?
dog must be cod to her..................................meh it still tasted nice
They made me do push ups in drag

"Spooks" seemed to be a slang for n*ggers when I thought it meant ghosts. Idiots fired me for using it and said I was a racist.

You'll never get the reference.

What? What the heck are these flip-flops you speak of? They're called thongs.
Oh, and rubbers. Apparently those strange Americans use the term for something else.

And I've always been confused by the kiwi term "lover". Here we just call them sheep.

what tomo009 said. i have an australian friend, and she often refers to her 'thongs' and i get confused and scared.

i dislike when people say 'sick' when they're talking about something they like or think is cool.

My old highschool physics / electronics teacher thought the word "Melancholy" meant happy and he would use it as such. Until one day when a student pointed it out to him. He searched and found out he had been using the word wrong, to express happiness for 30 years.

I too have experienced this.
There's a special sex move I do called the Charizard.
It's where you light the girls pubes, then put it out with your cum and run around the room flapping your arms screaming, "You don't have enough badges to train me!"

whenever i talk to my guitar instructor i have to speak to him in spanish because he's cuban. whenever i describe guitar strings i use a certain word, but since i'm colombian i use one word for it and he uses another. turns out my word for strings in his spanish dialect means a black prostitute. so whenever i'm like carlos do you have any new strings mine are rusty and old he'll die laughing.
