A few weeks ago we went to a restaurant along the waterfront. Because of the strong wind we sat under the roof instead of out on the beach, and unfortunately, the table we chose put us right beside some foul-mouthed American men.
It wasn't enough that we had to listen to them swearing freely with every sentence that came out of their mouths. The one guy, the main mouthpiece, was speaking loudly. We heard all about their visit to a local strip club, something I would not have thought anyone would want overheard. I think the men had enough liquor in them that they did not realize, or did not care, that we could hear. We heard...
How one simply knocks on the door and then chooses which woman they want.
How he got far more time than he paid for because the woman didn't want him to stop.
How his wife had not been able to take vacation due to a new job, but she encouraged him to go anyway (I bet she wouldn't be so thrilled to know how he passed the time).
How he was going to ask for the same woman because she clearly loved every minute he was giving it to her.
He tried to talk his friend into going back with him, when the friend clearly really didn't want to go. But the last we heard was they would be heading back over there once their dinner was consumed.
We ate our meal in silence during this distasteful discussion; we just wanted to get away from the men. Later I asked Miguel if he thought people from Mexico would go to the US, sit in a restaurant (not a bar, a restaurant) where other people were seated nearby, and use foul and vulgar language. He thought not, and I tend to agree with him. I'm not sure why some people think it's ok to come to a strange country and foul the air with their filthy language. It shows such a complete lack of respect for the people who live and work here, and for any other tourists forced to endure the bragging dialogue.
