What is an example about the English language that makes you confused?

My perfect example is the word “bass”. Depending on the context for how it’s used is how it’s pronounced.

Pronunciation #1: Bass fishing!
Pronunciation #2: Bass drop!

Both instances use the exact same spelling for one word but they are pronounced completely different. It pisses me off! If someone asked you to say the word without any context, what do you say?
It’s shit like THIS is why I decided math is my field of study; at least math has logic. English I feel that it’s not really consistent and there’s broken logic. English is my first language too!

Rant over.
