Your story reminded me when I just came to Australia, I didn't know the differences of meaning and pronunciation between Fax and F..k (maybe I learned it before,but could not tell the differeces between two words), so I asked the girl at reception "Can you F..k for me a letter to my mum" instead of "Can you fax this letter to my mum". She knew what I meant - but she must also had good laugh. And it still makes me laugh everytime I talk about it.. it made a big difference for a little mistake in pronunciation.
