Loan word question

Real quick, but I have a question I was wondering if anyone could help me with...

I need to create a dialog based on misunderstanding caused by loan words.
Off hand I can't think of a time when I used one the wrong way or when I really got confused by one Japanese people used... The textbook listed マンション as an example, which is good, but I can't think of anything!!

Can anyone else think of a loan word that would cause significant misunderstanding between American/Japanese people?...
