Calling All Spanish Speakers - Part 3!

Wed Jul 05, 2006 2:39 am

After the success of the original Calling All Spanish Speakers... (by Carmenlu15 May 25 2006 in Non Aviation) thread, a sequel had to follow... Calling All Spanish Speakers... Part 2 (by Carmenlu15 Jun 6 2006 in Non Aviation) As usual with sequels, one has to wonder whether they will live up to achieve the popularity of their predecessors.

Bueno, ¿quién dice que las segundas partes nunca son buenas? Part 2 is now taking too long to load; therefore, we are now presenting Part 3!  bouncy 

For starters, I'll repost the question I asked near the end of the previous thread: How do you call your amigos in your country? Cuates, cheros, güeyes, cabrones... Big grin

(However, don't forget you're welcome to take this as off-topic as you like.  Silly )

Güey is the most common call here in Monterrey, after all we are proud to be Regios!
It's not just the destination, it's the journey.

Estoy como la gran #$%&/@!... My f*cking wallet was stolen this morning! As usual, riding an overcrowded bus.  Yeah sure The woman beside me was getting too damn close and got suspicious, but when I noticed and tried to move it was too late, the zipper on the purse was already open and the wallet gone.  mad 

Well, if I have to look at the bright side... at least she didn't take the cellphone (which is not even mine, it's provided by my company). Besides, I don't carry any credit or ATM cards with me (previous experiences with thieves...), never carry more than Q50 (about $7) in cash, and by pure chance, I had all my money in my purse rather than inside the wallet. So there was nothing the thief would have found valuable...

But there were several things, starting with the wallet itself, that were valuable to me (some aviation-related, believe it or not). And I lost my friggin' ID... replacing that is going to be a pain in the a$$!  banghead 

As much as I love my country, these are the things that really get me frustrated.

Random stuff I forgot to quote from the previous thread:

Plus, I found my patriotism for Germany again

Patriotism in a World Cup? Now that is a foreign concept...

I am completely against patriotism on World Cups. One thing is a football team composed of players of the same nationality, and another, completely different thing is a whole country and its population. I am tired of hearing that people from [insert country] are f*ckers, while the ones from [insert country] are a bunch of morons.

For instance, I wanted Italy to win today because they were facing Germany, the country which eliminated Argentina last week. Does this mean I hate Germans? No way!

It is a pretty sad thing that people believe they are superior because their home team plays better football than the others.

Look at it from the bright side Carmen, you did not realize you were being robbed. Nobody pulled out a gun or a knife on you and demanded the wallet, as it is done in Mexico City. When that happens, the sole fact that there was a gun pointing directly at you can be a very traumatic experience, with all the consequences that entails.

Whenever you are being robbed, I believe the best thing is to remain calm and give everything you are asked for. No amount of money will ever be enough to compensate for getting injured or killed.

Specially you, lovely Carmencita. I would be very sad if anything happens to you. Even though you like F...chicken.

Actually I did notice my wallet was gone before the woman left the bus. However, as you say...

... that's why I let it go. When my father asked why was I so careless in the bus, I replied, "What do you want me to do? Yell? What if the woman was carrying a knife or something?!" You just never know what to expect...

About having a weapon pulled out when robbed, it happens here as well... Remember that story I posted about my fellow secretary who was robbed at gunpoint a few blocks from here? I must say, I feel really thankful because it has never happened to me (and hope never will!)

I certainly fear that all of Latin America will be forced into a situation similar to that of Colombia, with armed guerrilla-like forces (i.e. the criminals) against the armed forces and the population caught in between. The last upheaval in Sao Paulo was a serious preclude to such a situation.

However, when a human life is worth so little that a person can be killed for a bag, for a few dollars, for a pair of shoes, I wonder what can be possibly done to reinstate a sense of minimal security in our countries. And I don't think the problem is only immigration or the USA influence or economics alone. I think a major restructuring of the way our societies are built is required: respect for one another, end of corruption in all levels, renewal interest and valuation of human life. Latin Americans in general are warm, loving and caring people - but extremely cold and indifferent regarding the society they live in, sometimes even displicent. Until this indifference is substituted with a true sense of society, of belonging, of respect, situations like the one Carmenlu15 faced will only repeat themselves, if not get worse.

It is a dream, I know. But otherwise I see only bloodshed ahead...  crying

The only one I remember from Ecuador is:

Man, like:

'Ese man me jode la vida'

Please note that I have lived in the US for 22 years and my Spanish is basic.

Carmen, you know in LatAm we all have to be careful. I told my wife to leave her wedding ring behind when I took her to Ecuador in 2002. She almost refused, but I immediately pointed out the lack of jewelry being worn in the streets.

As to my chest pains from all the stress I have received for about a week, well, they are almost gone, but I still have received very little help from those who should know better than me. That is the reason I wear the double hat, engineering first, computers second. And it is a computer system for 25 people, so imagine the losses when the computers are done.

First of all I have to recover from bankruptcy after my recent vacation trip.

I am thinking about going to Guatemala either for New Year or for next year's Holy Week season.

I'll let you know as soon as I have things sorted out.

P.S....me puse hasta las orejas de comer Pollo Campero en Quito durante mis vacaciones. No sabía que había Pollo Campero allí (pese a que era mi 3er viaje) y cuando mi cuñado (que es ecuatoriano) me dijo que había varios restaurantes de la franquicia me lancé al ataque sin pensarlo...estaba delicioso!!!!!!!. Me comí 7 piezas (en Ecuador les llaman "presas") de golpe.

Or do you want a Mexican hot dog instead? Bacon-wrapped hot dog served with lots of green peppers and grilled onions.

In Colombia, we say...amigo or parcero (parce). There´s expressions to call other people, but they are part of a conversation you dont really call them that way. They are marica, guevon, idiota and gueva.

For example, you dont say:

Guevón camine.......

you rather say

Camine q se nos van a capar marica!

KFC, Pollo Campero, El Pollo Loco, Church's, Chikn' filet can all go to hell as far as I 'm concerned. As I said before, I hope the avian flu introduces a ban on chicken. I hate the bird.

So next Saturday is Carmencita's birthday. I wonder what will she be doing. I personally will try to go to Guatemala and be there to congratulate her in person, just need to check a few things...

Carmen, what will you be doing? A rave? A piñata party? a dinner? Lunch? Formal? Informal? Let me know.

---Sor Carmen---

"Si Carmen es una muchachita muy digna, casi Santa! Ella crecio en un convento de las monjas de la santisima caridad. Es tan decente esa niña que no tiene ningun mal pensamiento y no sabe de nada que tenga que ver con la dejeneracion de los principios como otras jovenes de la sociedad moderna de hoy en dia."

"La Mama de Carmen"




Translation:

Since at first glance you seem to be a saint, I'm sure that Carmen's parents will agree for you to stay next door to Carmen's room.


"Carmen is such a dignified young lady. She grew up in a convent with the divine sisters of charity. She is unaware of the bad things of society. She would never cause this family shame and embarrassment"

You know, actually it's Burger King (especially Burger King since their quality is different from one restaurant to another and since they're selling Pepsi products now  vomit  ) and McDonald's who can go to hell. Come down to Costa Rica and check out Hamburger Factory! Those are the best damn burgers I've ever tried. Big grin They're huge, freshly grilled (unlike what Burger King advertises for their burgers), the fries are really fat and taste like something. They're burgers pretty much the same size as the burgers I've had with my mother at MIA when I was six. Back then, we both couldn't eat all of our burgers and last time I was at Hamburger Factory, I could barely eat all of it, that's how big they are.

Since my father died, I ended up with depression so I ate and ate and ate. I am 1.84 mts but weighted 121 kgs. So now I am on a diet. I'm down to 110kg, my goal being reaching 90kgs. So no, I can't even think about burgers.

I've been to Rodizios in Rio. They are incredible, and the quality of the food is incredible. Plus, you get out of there with your stomack about to explode. Hard to go back to work after that...

Carmencita. I will not apologize. Chicken is my sworn enemy. Regardless of class, race, nationality or income level. Down with the chickens!! On another matter, since your brother occupies the other room, I'd rather sleep in the same room with you. On the coauch of corse, or on the floor. Unless on some fit of compassion you decide to let me sleep in yor bed.
