I was forever afraid I'd say "la gauffre" instead of "au gauffre" and somehow order the concept of waffles, or all the waffles in existence, or whatever weird thing I learned "la x" meant in that context; furthermore that they would actually carry out my order and I'd have to pay for the concept of waffles.
