Turkish language blunders

Sometimes you have to watch out with the turkish language, since some worlds are quite similar.

To get a waiters attention at a restaurant you say Bakar mısın? An even better way to get his attention is Bekar mısın? that means "Are you singel?"!

Or why not order taze erkek (fresh man) instead of taze ekmek (fresh bread).

Last of all you should be careful not to mix sıkılmak (to be bored) and sevişmek (to have sex), that can lead to uncomfortable misunderstandings.
