I realize that we USians have a reputation for getting things wrong, but I am still surprised when it is fully deserved.

The "special" at the company cafe (note the lack of accent over the e) today was listed as "pub style fish and chips".
I wasn't terribly surprised to see potato chips rather than french fries, just disappointed.
So, OK, it's not really pub style (fish and chips), it's more like (pub style fish) and chips.
But it also came with what was listed as "cole slaw". I have no idea whether or not cole slaw is a traditional pub item, but I bet you that if it is, it isn't lettuce-based -- that's right, it was actually a small garden salad soaked in some sort of dressing. Dead | X|
You'll never get very far if all you do is follow instructions.
