I work in a busy central London train station. Two young Italians come up to me.

Male Italian: Liverpool?

(A common mistake people make is to ask for a station by just one name – Oxford for Oxford Street, Tottenham for Tottenham Court Road. Sending them to where they ask for could be very different to where they actually want to go.)

Me: Do you mean Liverpool Street Station?

Female Italian: No, Liverpool football club!

Me: Well, that would be in Liverpool. About 200 miles north.

Male Italian: Not here, no?

Me: Not even in this city.

Male Italian: Oh. Arsenal football club?
