    :laugh: Are you kidding me?! I dont mind you being nosey! Actually Ive forgotten how nice it is to have someone talk to you at work. Theres no one here on the graveyard shift but me, EQ, yahoo Answers, a bunch of blocked websites and a bunch of hispanic cleaners. So mostly I have LOTS of onesided conversations. (This usually results in weird looks when i try to communicate with others since Im apparently referring to myself in the third person when I speak)

    What kind of work do you do? My co-worker is spanish speaking...my spanish is not so great but for some reasons beyond lengthy explanations my spanish could be alot better.

    We joked the other day that even though I had three jobs at one point I could not qualify to be Mexican because not one of the jobs was outside! Hey it was her idea LOL and made me crack up! We joke alot like that...I would not recommended joking with your co-workers like that though. You could get in trouble lol. My co-worker and I have no racial or other stereotypes when it comes to humor....we know the other is joking. I told her why do you think it is your job to water the plants? When I leave I told her nobody is going to be around to understand a Mexican, unfortunately, that is not a joke because everyone left after I go is soooo wonderbread lol.

    Hola, como esta, Senora or Senor is a nice way to say hello. Most likely you will get a...
    bien, gracias Senor with maybe an "y tu"...

    Or you could really freak them out and say Orale, que paso, ese or esa...that would really rock some worlds...so old school pachuco LOL people still use it though. Learn alot of cus words in spanish...that will crack them up too, dont use it directly at them but at something you are doing.

    I gotta hand it to you, at least it sounds like you try to communicate.

    Im an Overnight Concierge Supervisor for a Resort in GA. I work at the Lodge. http://www.seaisland.com (uh oh that just completly blew my cover eep :foot:, or I just opened the door to more influx of guests, in which case Yea for me :) )

    The Hispanics have a name for me (weapondrift huevos de chupacabra - ROFLMAO) If that name doesnt get me booted IDK what will :foot: (strike 2 lol). As Far as comunication goes, yeah I kinda have to. I mean comeON, I realize why the IT guys block websites but when you work Overnights they cant expect me to sit up all night with nothing to do. I cant really say anything to them cause then theyll probably say "Well maybe we need to find you something else to do.". *sigh* Dont get me wrong this job is the best thing thats ever happened to me but still, How else are you going to stay awake all night?

    You see where I live to the left....I know what you mean by $700 rooms. Its Napa Valley here! lol Wine Country. Watch out some people are too high end to let you know when they are changing lanes in traffic.

    What is an awful statement about Napa Valley is the schools. Unless you can afford private schools. The food in these schools here is awful. I am not ashamed to say that given Napa is known for its cuisine they really make little effort to provide anything fresh to public school kids.

    Re: el chupacabra...yeah that mo fo is a goatsucker lol. I am just tryin to figure out why they call you that! Especially the huevos part eww lol.

    Huevos does mean what you say....but it also means eggs. Blancio's is the fancy term for eggs, huevos is I guess the slanger version.

    i dont know what whataburger is so they arent too all over here. Trader Joes is a better option.

    Trader Joe's here is a furniture store. Kinda funny how things are so different in places but yet so much is still the same.
