Wasei eigo and non-English gairaigo

Hey everyone! I didn't know if this question was better for r/learnjapanese, but I figured fellow expats in Japan have a better chance of bumping into wasei eigo and gairaigo.

Anyways, I am teaching a little lesson on wasei eigo and gairaigo and I'd love to hear from you all which words you've bumped into and been surprised about. I'm looking for wasei eigo like サービス (as in complimentary, free) and gairaigo like アルバイト (comes from German) or ピーマン (comes from French allegedly).

Thanks for sharing!
