(I’m in my Spanish class. The class was going up to write something on the white board and one answer required the # symbol. A brunette girl goes up.)

Classmate: “What do I write?”

Teacher: “The pound symbol.”

Classmate: “What?”

Teacher: “Pound.”

Classmate: “I know. What’s that?”

Teacher: “The number symbol.”

Classmate: “What does it look like?”

Teacher: “Hashtag.”

Classmate: “Oh. What didn’t you say so?”

(To be honest, I didn’t know it was called pound. I always referred it to as the number symbol.)
