This is a question Stupid Tourists

What's the stupidest thing you've ever heard a tourist say? Ever heard an American talking about visiting "Scotchland, England", or (and this one is actually real) a Japanese couple talking about the correct way to say Clapham is actually Clatham, as "ph" sounds are pronounced "th". Which has a certain logic really. UPDATE: Please, no more Loogabarooga stories. It's getting like, "and I opened my eyes and my mum had left me a cup of tea!"

Lady, this is theft!
Yankie cousin comes over to Britain, she's an accountant and all is fine; we'll you'd think so wouldn't you?

Sitting around talking to her she starts going off about the money exchange. She got her money changed from dollars to pounds in Britain and the following results were in fact cringe worthy. Her words were something to the effect of,
"Lady, this is theft I gave you 500dollars I want my 500pounds."
It turns out that despite her being an accountant and the likes she couldn't comprehend exchange rates and thought that the pounds was just the British word for Dollar or something like that. No matter how hard we tried we couldn't get through to her that her economy was shit and that for her precious 500 dollars she got about 300 pounds.
And she's a relative, kill me, kill me now.
