Having dinner tonight, and before ordering the food I asked the waiter to bring me a martino.
He said : you mean a martini .. I said : no, I only want one, if I wanted two or more of those I would have said martini . ;)

( Italians will definitely appreciate the joke )
I simply can't stand it (screeching nails on a chalkboard) when I hear someone order a single "panini" instead of the correct single "panino". Likewise, when folks want some "brushetta" instead of the correct "brusketta" (correct spelling is, of course, bruschetta). There is no "k" in Italian... so Italians put a c and an h together and pronounce them as a "k". Same as pa ti' na.... No!, it's pa' ti na!
