Unintended

ok well when I was travelling in China we were doing a tour. Now i'm from Australia and swearing is known. The tour guide met us as we were driving to the hotel; my mum was chatting with him. He told us his name but he then said his chinese name was fu that's f u! We didn't say anything to be polite of course but me and my sister where cracking up seeing a mistake of not understanding what he had just said to us! It was a very nice way to be greeted even if no harm was meant.
