Communication is, without a doubt, one of the greatest achievements of our species. While each language is different and has its own unique words and pronunciations, mix-ups are common even when two people are speaking the same language. Andy van Slyke, who goes by the handle @im_all_id on Twitter, recently revealed a funny same-language mix-up. "A hot guy at my job asked me if I had any plans and I told him 15 because I thought he said plants," they wrote. The tweet went viral, garnering more than 272,000 likes.

Many others chipped in with their own mix-ups. Here are some of the best we came across:
