Your "mother tongue" is Spanish, yet you know English. Please speak English around us who don't know Spanish. We feel you are talking about us. When I am making a call to an automated system it says press 1 for English or 2 for Spanish. Why not 3 for Vietnamese, 4 for Chinese, 5 for Japanese, 6 for Italian, etc. Everyone else here made an effort to learn English. Why can't you!

to you, when you are really secure with yourself, you won't feel the need to debate your opinions all the time.

to you, planning to have 4 kids in succession just to appear unorthodox by today's 1-2 child family norm is just weird and stupid. you seem to be overwhelmed by the first one who isn't even 1.5 yet and think things are going to become magically easier once your newborn arrives in a couple of months?

to you, you aren't that much unlike your so-called ignorant inlaws whom you speak disparagingly about all the time, yet who help you whenever you are in tight binds with childcare and transportation needs.

clean up the trash and garbage in your yard! there's only supposed to be one family renting that house anyway. i should report you all for trying to cram about 3 whole families in there! i can't imagine eating food in my yard and tossing the garbage down on the property where i live. just because you are renting doesn't mean you aren't bound by the same home owner's policies that everyone else is. or maybe you are the types who'd be homeowners with trashy property. i wish you'd move far away and nice, clean people would replace you.

Arg!!! I'm so sick of dieting!!!!! Sick of trying this, trying that and nothing ever works!!!!!! Why does my body do this to me? 25 years of dieting and I've got nothing to show for it. Sick of counting portions, sick of counting calories, sick of weighing stuff, sick of it all!!! The only time I'll be slender again is when I'm six feet under!!!!

Did I mention I'm sick of dieting?!

I feel so helpless. You are not going to get your **** together without help, and the very people that are out there to help us help you have only enforced (in your twisted mind) that there is nothing wrong with how you live. That's very untrue and it is only getting worse... we are not sure where to turn. We feel so hopeless and helpless, and if we do what we should do, and they don't do what they should do (again) then what will happen? You'll take off across the country, because I know where you'll both go if we put you out and stop taking up your slack. Then the ones who need us so badly will be cut from our lives and they still won't be getting what they need. Please. J is sick and A is headed for the same pattern. I want you to get help. Really... if you can't do it for yourself, do it for them. Hell, do it for us even. You're killing M&D slowly and it is ridiculous. I can see in her eyes how hurt she is by all of this and how hard it is to have to be cold or cruel to you. Get help. Now. We try to help, but you keep cutting us out, pushing us away, and talking constantly about how you don't have a problem. Please, please, please get some help.

I feel so sad, but not so much for you, but for the ones that can't control it, can't help how things are. I know you have problems and I know you need help, but you can't get it until you choose to, and where does that leave them?! I'm so ****ing mad at you, above all else. It's hard to believe that it's even you in there.
Yes we used to drink together, only I didnt develop a drinking problem. You had to go to rehab. I tried to be supportive and see how you were, but you just ignored me. I wasn't your enabler...but whatever, if you are better now, i guess thats all that matters.

(nother rant--to 'nother person)
I'm sorry I messed with your head, but even as I look back, I still don't regret what I did. You think I never loved you even though I was with you for 5 years. But I know I did. I almost flew out to see you, to some how settle the score, pay for my sins. Fortunatly he stopped me from making a huge mistake....

(no offense to respectable, law-abiding mexicans)
you guys are such arrogant *******s and so full of yourselves that you just look silly. i just think it's hilarious how fan-tasta-fabulous you think you are. i used to consider you my friends, but that was before i realized just how phony and shallow you are. you're users, and i feel sorry for the people who put their trust in you. good luck with your plans for world domination ... hehehe.

and by the way, you're not even very good dancers! you're so/so, and c. if you ever deign to ask me to dance again, the answer will be no, hopefully much to your chagrin. i dance salsa because it is my love. i dance salsa with people who dance salsa because it is their love. i do not dance salsa with people who are there to 'be seen.' there are people like you in every scene, and you always make me .

I know we're not supposed to respond to other posts in this thread, so I'll just insert a for certain recently posted comments. I was going to rant about this subject anyway, so perfect timing.

To everyone who is bothered by Latin American immigrants not speaking English in the U.S.- I'm sure all your ancestors were speaking English coming off the boat. Immigrants want to speak their native language when conversing with each other because it makes them feel a bond to one another and their native country. I doubt they're talking about you behind your back, and if you suspect they are, maybe you should take it upon yourselves to learn some Spanish so you'll know what they're saying. Businesses are also smart - in areas that have a large Latino population, they're going to make themselves more accessible to Latinos. It's about making a profit to them, not disregarding English. Blame U.S. businesses for immigrants not learning English because this gives them a good reason not to learn it - they don't have to learn it to get by. They shouldn't have to, either.

Speaking Spanish is not all about one's unwillingness to assimilate. My grandparents did learn English upon coming here and primarily speak it, as does my mother, but I wish my family would've made more of an effort to keep Spanish in our lives. I know some Spanish but not enough, and I'm planning to somehow learn how to become a fluent speaker. It would highly benefit even those in the U.S. who don't have Latin American ancestry to learn the language.

"Mexicans" doesn't encompass all persons from Latin American countries. There are more countries down there besides Mexico, lol.
Wow. It's nice to see bigotry hasn't died, even after ALL the threads on race and acceptance and tolerance, all you have to do is know where to look to see what people really think.

Awesome.

I think I will go thank my parents for the way they raised me.

Why do you live in Minnesota if you don't like snow? Stop complaining and deal with it! I love cold weather and I love snow, and if I didn't, I'd live somewhere with a warmer climate. I don't like driving in it - in fact, I got in a car accident because I got into traffic when a snowstorm hit. But I realize it's all part of living in the upper midwest, so I take extra time and extra caution while driving. That's all you can do. Don't tell me you've lived here much longer than I have and still aren't used to it. It's much better than days of 100+ degree weather in summertime, but I feel I have a right to complain about that since it's unusually warm temps. But this? It's perfectly normal weather for this area so get used to it! Don't rag on me when I say I love it and spoil my fun!

I personally have no problems with immigrants of any kind, and I have had a few good friends from mexico. It was only ment to be a stupid criminal story, where language was one of the things that got them caught. Im sorry I meant no offence.
Cympreni, I don't think you need to apologize. It seemed obvious to me that you were talking about a specific group of people in your town. And yes, it was stupid of them to reveal themselves like that, but all the better to catch them, right?

As for my rant:

Yes, I'm Hispanic. It doesn't mean I speak Spanish, so don't get mad at me when I tell you this as if I'm some sort of failure to my ethnicity. You can speak to me in Spanish all you want, and I'll understand most of it, but you need to understand that it will take awhile. If you speak English, then save yourself the trouble and just say it to me in English. If not, then please bear with me instead of rolling your eyes at me and getting all huffy. I don't roll my eyes at you when you don't speak English.
