  1. "Why does this job even exist in this day and age. Would it help if this Gringo instructed his contractor to order rocks already broken to size. But would this mean the Peon then has no work?" Where do I start? There is no such thing in Mexico as a giant machine whose only purpose is to break big rocks into small rocks, in order by size and shape. Understanding that, how do you think the rocks will be broken so the contractor can order them by size, etc.? Probably the same guy who is breaking the rocks on the job site will be somewhere else breaking rocks to be shipped.
  2. Assuming that your bank will accept a 18K dollars charge for a used car in Mexico, they probably won't act as a guarantee the way you want. One top of that, the seller would have to pay a 3 per cent or so fee to the credit card company, so, no, it's not going to happen.
  3. I'm way late to this conversation, but ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? No, they don't call, they don't text, they don't show up. It's all part of that wonderful Mexican culture I keep hearing so much about.
  4. YOU! Put your head back in the sand!
  5. Fax? Just because it was fro 11 years ago doesn't mean you have to respond in kind.
  6. Deposits in the US are insured by the gub'mint. Wells Fargo didn't just steal the people's money right out of their accounts, as happens frequently in Mexico.
  7. "P.S.I am sure I was a target driving an expensive very fast import" Ya'think?
  8. "Is that a euphemism for die?" It's a reference to the Monty Python dead parrot skit.
  9. The only thing you can do if you have squirrel problems is to make one of those videos showing how smart squirrels are.
  10. Well, I wondered how a notice for found dishes would get 33 responses.
  11. Look closely and you can see Federales in uniform filling up their buckets along with everyone else.
  12. If they are disbanded and a new plan is formed, the rules for either will be out the window.
  13. Combining IMSS and SP is like tying two rocks together because you think then it will float.
  14. Here's the conversation every time there is a new administration: Incoming Pres/Gob/Mayor/whatever -- "We are going to crack down on all corruption! No more!" Outgoing etc. -- "Sir, do you have an idea just how much money you can get?" Incoming etc. -- "Never mind"
  15. You pays your money and you takes your chances. https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/you_pays_your_money_and_you_takes_your_choice
  16. Did you read the OP's post? How else would you describe it?
  17. So a 660 pesos hotel in Mexico City was not up to 4-star standards. Hmm. Who'da thunk it?
  18. Makes sense -- they don't want you to kick off owing them money.
  19. Delivered by the regular post office guy, to my door.
