NO WAY. I definitely disagree.

A couple of weeks ago, on the VIA bus, this very dark skinned Mexican guy (40 to early 50s) was talking in Spanish LOUD on his cell phone and was visbily upset at the other person and he was right behind me! I almost wanted to move from my seat!

Also, last week, taking a break at HEB on San Pedro and Olmos a very light skinned Mexican guy (late 50s to early 60s) was ARGUING in Spanish on his cell phone very loud in the food court area of the HEB. He was practically yelling!!! I looked around to see if any HEB employees were around. Had there been an HEB manager around, I'm sure he/she would have told him something.

It's also not about age (not that you said it was, just saying), as I can tell you numerous accounts of younger people being loud and obnoxious on the bus as well. Also, whenever I have to talk on the phone, If I'm on the bus, I always cover my mouth with my hand to not disturb others.


In terms of "loudness" it has nothing do with lower income or higher income...it's just plain INCONSIDERATION by idiots regardless of their age, race, or income level.

One more thing...I don't wanna get off topic but I worked as a server at a very nice Italian restaurant before and I was apalled at how the wealthy Mexican nationals were very rude and demanding to us servers and had a sense of entitlement; by contrast, wealthy Americans were actually friendlier and pleasant but that's another thread.

In Latinamerica (includes Mexico) upper class people have an obsession with "trying to be/look ... elegant/proper/etc, etc"

I agree that the thread has run its course. We seem to be plowing the same ground again. That re-plowing is a problem when the thread also wanders into controversial areas of race. Thread closed.
