You get the wrong interpretation when you see a sign that says "Park District Summer VB Camp". Yes. I did.

When you're out drinking beer with a beautiful woman and she aske you if you got any plans for tomorrow morning. And you answer "Yepps, i'm going to clean up some files on my pc and do a bit of work on my webpage." and you can't even understand what you said that was so wrong when she gets up and leaves and won't talk to you for a long time.

Or when your GF asks you to clean up a bit, and you start to do a defrag on the pc. *done that too*
