My favourite from someone learning English is, "I breakfasted myself."
I had someone from a Quebec company tell me they will "pus the order as ASAP". I think they intended push?

How do you pronounce beigne? Like "bain" or "bainya" or something else? The "gn" making a nyuh sound is always tricky for English people. A lot of people have an urge to pronounce it "oig nun".
