Four Mexican friends joined me for a pizza party at a new Italian restaurant in Torreón. Good food, good service, nice place.

When the check came, I looked at the top to verify the waiter's name.
That's when I saw the table number and laughed. I passed the check around, and everyone had a big laugh.
MESA: GRINGO

I know some folks are offended by "gringo." I'm not, and I enjoyed a good laugh at this one.

You're probably as much Mexican as most but you'll always be The Griingo.

Speaking for myself, you are a much appreciated Gringo. Can't thank you enough for all the great stuff on your website.

Very Happy

I'm not offended by "gringo"either as long as it's not preceded by pinche, it is what it is.In PC NoB you could have sued the restaraunt and had the waiter fired.

Here in New Mexico, there are obviously many people of Mexican heritage (who may not have ever been to Mexico) and might use Gringo behind our backs but are totally shocked when I refer to myself as a Gringo. During a conversation, the first time that I use the term, they are not sure that I have really used the term but then if I use it again, they really lighten up and the conversations get to be fun. Like you, I certainly have no problem with the term!
