Thank you all for sharing your stories.

 I was at my favorite restaurant in  India to order a Taali, which one of my favorite things in the world to eat! After I made my order, I said, “Please no Peas!”  And the sever replied with, “Madam, no piece, not possible” with an awesome Indian accent followed by infamous Indian head bob.  Then I said,
”No no no, I mean peas, they are  small and green.” Then he said, “No PEACE, very sad.” We went on for awhile until he realized I was talking about a vegetable.
