    I couldn’t help it; I had to ask…..Were you closed Friday?

    Server: No.
    Me: I just wondered, what do you think of this immigration stuff?
    Server: its okay, we were open.
    Me: well, what do you think of the legislation, is it okay?
    Server: I don’t speak English well..
    And that was the end of that.

    Yeah right, this guy has been at this restaurant for at least 1 ½ years,
    can’t speak English my ass, how convenient…

    Guess I should have ask if he was legal.

    It's like that episode of Family Guy.

    Brian: Uh, me llamo es Brian.
    Mexican Guy: Actually, you don't have to put in the 'es.' You can just say, "Me llamo Brian."
    Brian: Oh, you speak English.
    Mexican Guy: No, just that sentence and this one explaining it.
    Brian: You're...you're kidding, right?
    Mexican Guy: ¿Que?

    la migra/la migre is what they call or have dubbed the INS or immigration...it's cheap entertainment if you're low on cash and in an immigrant-heavy area...

    Just a little tip ... wait until AFTER you are served to do it. That way you can enjoy your entertainment AND your meal.

    I don't know about restaurants first hand, but on a construction site, if it's yelled out you lose all your slab guys, sheetrokers/painters, and landscapers. :thup:
