Arabic blunder # 1

I only just realized today that I've been saying "abgha saksouka" instead of "abgha shakshouka" to the cashier guy sitting in my local mat3am in the mornings. No wonder he's been looking at me strange all year. How embarresing.

No way is this worse than yelling out "the zip won't close, the zip won't close, the stupid zipppp just won't close!" in the middle of a packed department store.

Zip, rather, ziB...is errr; I'll let your friends do the translation.

Haha that reminds me of a story about a professor, a student, and a zip disk. Student doesnt know how to use the zip disk so he goes to ask his professor after the class. Professor sees him and says "ahh tal tal shoof al zib". Needless to say the student got the hell outta there.
