guy comes into my shop today to get a key cut that clearly says DO NOT COPY. I ask him what business the key goes to and if he's authorized---he rattles off a business name and i head back to check the books. He's good , but as i get back to tell him all's cool he's on the phone telling someone --


"este imbécil no cortará mi llave"

i interrupt his phone call with "eres bueno, cuantos llaves necessita? "

the expression on his face was priceless.

Another thing about Spanish to keep in mind w/ slang is that the same word will most likely mean something completely different in different countries. Kinda like what chips are here vs. in the UK.

This is important b/c an innocuous word in one may be an insult in another lol...

My mom's family is from Puerto Rico. My grandmother moved from there when she was 18. She never taught my mom Spanish, so i don't speak it either. But the 3 times i've gone to Mexico on cruises, while we are at port and I go into town, the people working at all the shops start off speaking to me in Spanish, just assuming i speak it. So i guess my situation is the opposite.
I live your pain.
