Have you ever misinterpret the meaning of an emoticon?

I remember when I first saw T_T I thought it meant someone who is unimpressed or *stare*...but a lot more people use it for crying. There were a few times when someone got pretty offended and told me I was giving them an attitude because of this emoticon -> -_-"

Personally, I usually use this face -_-" when something doesn't go as planned, or when something unfavorable has happened. I really don't think it's meant to be something to attack a person with

I used to think (:P) was like a half smile. I'm still not entirely sure what :> exactly means, but I use it for anything.

I'm surprisingly adept at deciphering emoticons given my lack of knowledge on such things. Still have trouble with a lot of text-speak abbreviations, though. Luckily they don't pop up quite as often anymore.

I did occasionally when I made my first steps on the interwebs, but as time goes on you become accustomed to it.
