    But can't you just point to the item on the menu??

    It's very common to go to a fast food restaurant, an ice cream store or candy store and the Mexican person can't understand what you're ordering. Fast food sucks anyway but I would like my chocolate ice cream with nuts.

    In that case, order "un helado chocolate con nueces."

    Oh this is ridiculous. This one time I went to my favortie hamburger place where they cook real hamburgers(not that Mcdonalds crap.) Anyway I asked for a plate and the Mexican woman didn't understand me. The Mexican guy next to me said plato and then she got me my plate.

    Okay so let's have a list of offical Spanish translations

    plate - plato

    napkin -

    fork -

    spoon -

    water -

    That pretty much covers the basics. So that should be enough to get by. Thanks.

    whoa, was this in america, cause that's ridiculous that a business here doesn't understand english. Unless the area is heavily populated by spanish speaking people, but still, this is america.

    Looks at place: ah, texas. Of course.
    Attitude of AO MODS, according to beast
    Because they have obtained that level they are arrogant. You have to kep in mind when you talk about these guys they are kind of dorks who probably didn't excel at much and this is their only outlet to flex their muscles. Their egos would suffer no less so the the forum suffers some more. Watch one way or another they will probably repond to this post with a threat. But there are better forums out there. Private messege Zev.

    It's that bad? Don't they check your English proficiency before allowing you to set up a store?
