Ever embarrassed yourself with an answer to a mis-heard question?

I probably have on a few occasions, but one that I remember occurred as a lad working in a small supermarket. A fairly grumpy old man came in and I thought he asked 'Where's your mince?'(mince meat/ground beef) Now, being young and keen to impress with my enthusiasm, I said 'yes, come with me' and took him to the meat fridge, and grabbed a nice pack of mince out and handed it to him. He looked at it, then looked at me like I was stupid, and said a little crossly ' I want some mints to chew on, to freshen my breath'!! Hmmm, I bet he was really impressed with my enthusiasm!! Got a moment like this you want to share?
