My sister has two friends that work at a restaurant. And she hangs out with them at the bar, with the bartenders, all the time.
One of these times, there was a very drunk woman with a heavy southern accent trying to order a drink. The bartender didn't understand her, especially since she kept on asking for her drink with a "lahyme."
The bartender still couldn't figure it out, and started asking other people if they knew what she was talking about. The woman kept saying it over and over again, and no one could figure it out.
It was going nowhere until finally, she explained. "You know, a f-r-i-u-t."
This picture has nothing to do with this story, but it is pretty funny, too:
