That's funny... if you read many of the SA forums you'll see people complaining about nasty San Antonians being rude when driving and shopping, going to restaurants, to other neighbors, etc. Unless you believe they are all Mexicans, then you would see that they are actually acting the same as many locals.

But also, aren't we generalizing a little bit too much?

Probably but after working in retail a while back and having a wife who worked in it for 10 years (at least on the North sides), the Mexican Nationals are far and away the worst people in the stores.

Just taking it from personal experience.

I think you are generalizing too much with Mexicans.

In my experience as tourist in San Antonio the mexican customer is treated very poorly compared to how it is treated in Houston or Dallas.

Myself prefer to go to Dallas where options and customer treatment are superior.

Well, sorry you feel that way, but this thread is about the proposed high-speed rail from San Antonio to Monterrey, not about the attitude of shoppers.

High speed rail from San Antonio to Austin, please. Why the hell would I want to ride a train to Mexico?

There is already a rail line from here to New Orleans. Sunset Limited - the Train between Louisiana and California through Texas, New Mexico and Arizona | Amtrak

Of course, it leaves at 6:20AM on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and it takes 15 hours to get to NO.

You could drive to NO in 8 hours, and leave whenever you please.

Also from personal experiences, they're quite rude to local shoppers.

Monterrey is far from the second most beautiful city in it's own state, let alone Mexico as a country in general. And yes people from Monterrey are annoying. The Stone Oak area is filled with a lot of them. Also as a side note, a lot of People from Monterrey find it a lot cheaper to live here than in Monterrey. There are lots of people from Monterrey living on a dime (illegal I may add) but it is cheaper to pay a rent here and get free school than paying for private school in Monterrey (same cost). They choose that area to mingle with the rich crowd; they don't realize everyone is as broke as well. That is why so many restaurants and business close in the Stone Oak area; all hat no cattle. Fast rail between Austin and San Antonio would be far better.

There is a reason Monterrey has been a prosperous city. Perhaps it is because of the Crypto-Jews who settled Nuevo Leon? In either case their GDP is greater than ours as a city and most likely greater than Austin's as well.

Unsure what other cities could be nominated as Mexico's second most beautiful? Perhaps Guanajuato or Monclova but it has always been Monterrey second in line after Guadalajara.

How clever of you to also throw in your petty cheap shots at Stone Oak.
The restaurant business is a challenge no matter where you live in SA. Restaurants don't close simply because people are broke. Not even sure why I should bother addressing your post more than I just did. I'm not sure how anyone can take your post seriously.
