  1. The card goes in your wallet to show in case of if you get stopped. The stickers have been discontinued.
  2. Today in Chapala restrictions are still on, hopefully tomorrow they will be all lifted.
  3. Lockdowns should end Friday night. That means Saturday morning everything should back open and running again. El Semanario de Chapala claims that the Mass will be open for parishioners to attend starting Saturday. It only mentioned the churches, but if the churches are opening up I guess that means everything else too. God willing!
  4. Guadalajara pharmacies usually can print stuff from a thumb drive.
  5. I disagree and I think most Mexicans that use it are only saying dude not dumbass. It is a very innocent term to basically say dude. They have far better words for dumbass and a-hole in Mexican Spanish.
  6. It is mostly used as dude, they have better words for dumbass. The term is so commonly heard and used, just walking down Madero from Coppell to the plaza you may easily hear it said 10 or 15 times by people walking past. There was no malintent. It is just an extremely common expression used by the younger guys of Mexico to mean dude. Since you live in Chapala, try listening to the guys on the street speaking Spanish, you will hear it said all the time with zero malintent.
  7. Mudgirl, many people believe the word güey or wey comes from the word büey. Allow Sr. Google to do his thing. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Güey
  8. Mudgirl we are all family on this forum.
  9. Talking about being in a bubble, how is the word güey even remotely insulting, sure it means castrated bull, but nobody here uses it like that, in Mexico it is used on a daily basis to just and only mean dude, pronounced "way" as in no mames güey. Seriously, what did you think I called you?
  10. Hey it is way easier to shut down a small isolated island country where most of the population is middle class or higher and a very small population to top it off. All they had to do was close the airports and quarantine the small number of infected and bang their you have it. But it won't ever work in Mexico. Wake up dude.
  11. Upfront, you must be living in that bubble you recently referred to, how did you call it? A bubble of farts if my memory isn't failing me. The policy of not admitting seniors into stores is plain stupid as Maincoones points out, but specifically for Mexico. Most seniors in Mexico live in extended families shared with their children that must work and their grandkids that must play. Maybe this crazy plan of age discrimination might serve well the expat community here because they mainly live alone but it does nothing for the Mexican community in which this ludicrous plan was drafted up to protect. Maybe, it would work in the States or in Canada because there sadly most seniors live alone. But it will not save Mexicans, it only makes their lives harder. Step out of that smelly bubble güey and come out and smell the jazmín that will be blooming tonight.
  12. I also call BS on that too. Where did they flatten the curve? In Europe where they spent all summer with extremely severe restrictions and all late fall the media kept reporting on how the virus was rampaging across Europe again forcing cities everywhere to go back into shutdown. Or perhaps you mean East Asian countries where the populations are very healthy with extremely low levels of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Or maybe you could mean NZ, a very small populated island nation on the opposite side of the world living completely isolated by distance from the rest of the world.
  13. If it isn't a true emergency just call a taxi or uber. That is what we have done.
  14. What I find most hilarious and hypocritical is that when the government closed down everything and made it almost impossible for the average poorer Mexican to work and feed their families the rich gringos here on this forum were aplauding the government measures and saying they were most welcomed, now that the sanitary measures effect the 60 over expat community, they now are bitching and complaining and being a bunch of lame hypocrites.
  15. Upfront, I think it is obvious what Maincoons is saying. Most older people are getting infected at home. The elderly expat community does not enter into the data because they mostly live alone. In Mexico the elderly usually live in extended families so their children and grandchildren have to go out daily to work so the family can eat. They don't receive a stimulus check here. When and if their children get infected they bring it home. But again to eat people need to work.
  16. El Día de la Constitución is being celebrated this Monday. All banks, schools, and government offices will be closed. There will be Tapatíos visiting the area like usual, just nothing like in past years.
  17. Yeah I know. They will only find out about the cars that randomly get stopped for traffic violations. It just seems logic went out the window with the pandemic. But maybe it will benefit those that can't afford new tags, for awhile at least until they get stopped eventually.
  18. I went and paid today. They told me they are no longing giving out stickers to put on your windshield. Now they are giving out cards to keep in your wallet. I found that odd. How will the police recognize vehicles that haven't paid?
  19. TelsZ4 the spreading of this virus is not happening so much inside of the stores. It occurs more often in those ridiculous long lines you need to wait in to get into many stores and businesses. So many of these protocols and new norms are outright stupid and crazy.
  20. You are free to also research the differences of should and must in Spanish while translating se deben. I researched it before posting. I also have been fluent in Spanish for years. I just wanted to make sure I got it as close to right as possible.
  21. And Mostlylost is correct again on the translation of se deben. Yes, it is often translated into English as either should or must. But take note it is not the hardcore version of must but much closer to should. When things in Spanish are absolutely mandatory they generally say tienen que or se los obligan or another version of obligar.
  22. Well I have spoken to the workers at the Chapala Oxxo near the big church, at where the old Restaurante Supieror used to be and they confirmed with me that they were given orders to not allow access to seniors over 60 and children under 12. I asked them how they were going to go about doing that. I asked them if they were IDing them at the door and they said no, that they were just asking them their age. I have no way of knowing if they are or were truly enforcing it because I'm no where near 60 yet.
  23. So, I take that the chart Mostlylost shows is that the flu is much more deadly to children than Covid even is.
