Re: “Why doesn't the Mexican translate all his Spanish words?

Dear Mexican,
I can't answer for you as to why you don't translate all your terminology. But for many of us who are Mexicano, or in my case, grew up with Mexicanos, it's sometimes just a matter of practicality, to use only Espanol. In some cases, it even keeps us from having the hell slapped out of us by some secretary, female police officer, or other hard working lady, when we are overcome by outside influences, and unrestrainedly shout to each other something like "Ayyyyy.....Dios mios! Que manzanas!", or some other equally sexist bit of phrasing. Crude? Yes. But maybe in the long run, more polite. And if anyone can't look in a dictionary, and then conclude that we're not critiquing the produce at the City Market....they're not trying hard enough. La vista. El Mexicano Blanco.

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

I would suggest that after you say "Hola" tell the little bastards to go back to Mexico and steal from their own kind. They are pulling your leg if they tell you that they don't understand you and calling you names behind your back because they think they have outsmarted you.

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

Yeah right pal. Look at the USA national languages. SPANISH AND ENGLISH. It has been that way since I was in the 4th grade. Absolutely ridiculous.

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

I havent been to the unemployment line lately myself. Last time I was there it was mostly full of people that think they are too good to take a job for a low wage.
Thats the difference.
The only reason the rate of accidents with mexicans involved has increased is because there are more of them now. the amount has to increase. do the math. I mean u can only speculate that they are illegal.

I mean really. did you think before u said all that===jeez

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

Shaun, just reflect a little more about "my point". Nothing is black and white. Not all immigrants are English illiterate. Some jump on the desire to learn the language, some hide in their own for self protection. Some have PhDs and MDs...But look also in the comments to this post from "Americans" and tell me if these reflect a command of the English written language. Take some perspective.

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

Buenar tardes amigo!
If your ancestors came here fluent in English...why did they come here?? and where from??
I am sure you enjoy mexican food, nice roofs, nice laid off highways, nice lawncare, nice cleaning ladies... and the nice meat the "mexicans" slaughter and cut up for your beautiful summer parties on your deck...Pretty soon though.. their children will become your boss or your children's bosses, given the statistics. Before this happens, I suggest that you get a hold of your pompous attitude as this will be THEIR country as much as it is yours...just like this country is now "yours" after some generations when it was not....By then, you may want to migrate or and experience something that might help you grow !! Regardless, it will be a great time to experience as "Americans" will be taught or at least, exposed, to some good manners, traditions, respect and care for the community and family. A lost tradition in "America" Cordialmente, Ana

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

I quote the story: "the clerk and his wife who are talking in Spanish to each other, I'll come across as one of those gringos who wants everyone to speak English to him. " Welcome to America. Try to learn the language or live your life's separate - I don't care either is fine. If I go to Mexico I expect 99% of people to speak Spanish.....and I wouldn't expect them to speak English just for me (or Martian if I was from Mars) I mean IS there something I'm missing here??? I know the universal "gringo" sign language, hers one for ya!

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

I'm SOOOOO glad that I'm not the only person to hate the situation. Since our city has been infested, we've had more grafiti, more deaths caused by unlicensed illegals behind the wheel of an auto, and it's starting to look trashier every day. To top it all off, those that haven't managed to steal a job are gettin fat off of welfare......which us AMERICANS pay for.

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

America!! what is America?? Who made America what it is right now??? Do you speak any of the Native Indian languages? Do you speak Spanish, French, Portuguese, German, Japanese, etc etc??? Where did your ancestors come from? And what language did they speak? Did they come to America fluent in English??? Have you considered learning another language ever??? I encourage you to stay where you are at and not to go Mexico or anywhere outside the USA. If you did, you would definitely be an embarrashment to "America"

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

Who cares how to say anything in spanish,THIS IS AMERICA!!!!!!! Learn to speak the language of this country,if i go to mexico(like that will EVER happen)i would be forced to LEARN THAT LANGUAGE!!!! Why do AMERICANS bend over for these people who come here,want all the rights that AMERICANS have but yet DON'T RESPECT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE HERE AND THE LANGUAGE THAT IS SPOKEN!!! That's not bein racist for any smartass comments that want to come back,just pointing out the plain ole TRUTH!!!

Re: “How do I properly say 'hola' to Mexicans?

It is nice that he is trying to learn just to be social and a good neighbor and also to keep his bussines groing with the type of culture he is been around, at the same time we as people to come to this country, we should try al least to learn all basic words to show the people from here that we are here just because we need to feed our families and we respect everybody like we would like the people from here to do the same with us, of course you will have criminals like all over the world and those take it ASAP and sent them were they belong.But remember that American indians are actually the only true americans in USA.
