I went in USA in 1992 and I had an encounter with a steward on a plane from Houston to San Francisco. He came to me and asked "What do you like to drink, miss?" and I said "Yesss !" because I had understood "Do you want to drink miss?" The steward was laughing and my friend "took the conversation in his hands" and said "Two orange juices please" I felt very stupid and I promised to make progress in American accent comprehension ;-)— Géraldine C.
