Not at all. But when I ask them for directions or if they know what such and such is..and if I get a dumbass look and a "que?'"...or "no english"...I'm pretty sure that answers for me right?

I would be happier..but Corona is wayyyyy cheaper and I'm saving money to get thru college. If any of you are wondering why places like Corona are cheaper..just google them...or better yet...see youtube. LOL

I do not make assumptions towards anyone. Everyone has their own reasons. They could be illegal, but they could also be here on a passport or visa. I don't know. I do not ignore that principle we learned in 1st grade: Don't judge the book by its cover. Newyork you say? You might be dealing with Puerto ricans rather than Mexicans . And Puerto Ricans are U.S citizens.

But in the future, invest in a TomTom

Yes we are in every way! I have frequently been disappointed because I couldn't rep you. Same thing happens when I want to rep Benicar. Don't worry, I end up high fiving both of you mentally instead.
