    It's insane.

    My biggest pet peeve is when people expect me to speak spanish in America just because I am Hispanic.

    Um... do you speak Spanish? (I sure wish I could speak more than one language)

    No, I only speak English (and a little sign language if you want to count that.) I was born and raised in North Carolina so I had no need to learn Spanish when I was little and have never bothered to learn it since.

    Well, with a little sign you are doing better than I learning another language.

    No time like the present to learn. I have a lot of people tell me that the only real way to learn Spanish is to take a trip into Mexico for a month into an area that only speaks Spanish. I guess that this is the "sink or swim" method of language learning.

    Uh-Oh I don't know if I can swim...

    The other method is to live in south Texas for a few years. (Disclaimer: In a few years, south Texas will become the place to go for the "sink or swim" method.)

    Screw Wal-Mart. The ones in Tucson are nasty anyway. They're small, dirty, and full of scroungily people.

    I shop at the BX, on base. No tax, low prices. Can't beat that.

    No, you can't be no tax, low price, but unfortunately I don't have an army base around here to shop at. The Wal-Mart here, however, is a Super Wal-Mart and is less than a year old, so it's still nice looking. Give it a few years and it will be grimey and dirty like many (most?) Wal-Mart eventually become.

    I'm telling you, the BX has no taxes, and low prices. Plus they promise to match a price if you find lower one outside the base.

    Well you can't shop there unless you're in the military.
