False Friends (Spanish - English)

When learning a new language, there is an inevitable point in which a false friend will make an appearance and cause an awkward situation to be remembered forever more by its victim.

For those not too familiar with linguistics or translation, a false friend is a word that feels almost like a direct translation from another language, but in reality means something completely different, with the added bonus of usually being something rude to add insult to injury.
