In the 7th or 8th grade, my social studies class had an airline pilot come in as a guest speaker during "career week" to tell us about his job. At one point, he asked the class if anyone knew what FAA stood for. Having grown up in the rural suburbs of the KC area and having witnessed many of their conventions in town, I raised my hand and confidently answered "Future Farmers of America". It was humiliating and still haunts me to this day.
