    (My customer asks me for a map and says he is going to be heading over to Newfoundland. I give him a map and point it out for him.)

    Customer: “Why do you spell it ‘Newfoundland’? It’s New Finland.”

    Me: “Well, its pronounced sort of like New Finland, but it’s actually Newfoundland, as in ‘this is a New Found Land.'”

    Customer: “No, it’s New Finland.”

    Me: “I can guarantee you there are not many Finnish people there.”

    Customer: “Of course not. They left 1,000 years ago!”
