Since German is my native language I spend like 27 years of my life thinking of Lassie a boy. Until I met my husband, who is English, and he introduced me to the expressions of "lads and lassies"! LMBO!
Another funny one is this: When I moved to the Netherlands and couldn't speak Dutch yet, my husband would say things like: "The buurman is doing this or that. Or The buurman says 'hi' ". And I thought that was his NAME .... Luckily it didn't take long before I found out that "buurman" means literally "neighbour" lol
Do you have any mistunderstanding you carried for years? Wanna share?
