  1. yes, they have always given us lousy service. The last time we went it was to buy something. I forgot but we asked if it was the wrong one can we come back and exchange it. They said NO. We said are you serious? They said yes we dont exchange or guarantee anything..........we said alrighty then......we will never go back.....
  2. That is funny Tom, yes maybe for us gringos but everyday several times a day at a stop sign people behind us pull out and pass us running the red lights. It happens every day.
  3. Does anyone know the name and contact info of a Mex Customs Agent on the Mex/Texas border.. Im trying to legalize a very small enclosed cargo trailer. It is amazing Ive contacted many many of them. They either dont do trailers or they dont respond to my calls or emails. But i know someone does as Ive met many people here in mexico that have had it done. Of course our mexican friends say it is not necessary......lol.....but with my luck if I brought it in, it would be confiscated. We are Permanent. Thank you for any help.

  5. We have a very dear friend, very young man.....soooooooo talented. Well, my phone would not charge. I took it to where I bought it, Telcel. The repair man they use said it was not possible to repair. So I went to another telcel for a 2nd opinion. They guy said yes i can fix it. $300 pesos. He did but it only lasted one week. So I gave it to our friend. He fixed it. He fixed my husbands phone also. He fixes all our friends phones. So we are putting him through a tech school in Guad to be able to get his certificate to enter that career as he is amazingly talented. If youve tried everything and nothing has worked and you are interested in him looking at it, let me know. Boswellbarbara3@gmail.com Barbara
  6. my friend is asking approximately how many hours and when do you need him?
  7. i know an excellent guy, ill let you know soon.
  8. I spoke total spanish and was very very polite.
  9. Yes, i went to buy an item, but i asked if it did not fit could i exchange it. He said no you cannot. I said so i cannot bring back anything i buy here in the store for a refund or exchange and he said that is right you cannot. I can honestly say ive never had good customer service there so quess what: I will never darken their doors again...I spoke total spanish and am respectful and kind.....thats the great thing about capitalism....horrible stores hopefully go out of business.....
  10. Most all of our friends are mexican in our church. One friend just put her kids in Tae kwon do,,,,,spelled wrong sorry....3 days a week after school one hour for $400 pesos, $20US a month. the other is in futball. There are many activities offered, zumba, etc
  11. Uzziel is awesome. We used him to install without calling the company, then when we moved to another place.....He really knows Customer service......at least our experience.
  12. yes, mom and pop stores are cheaper. I go to them all the time and avoid Walmart unless there is one item i cannot get elsewhere. All our mexican friends say the Oxxos are more expensive also. One time we went to the new Vevero in riberas on the mountain side, got a quote for a 5 foot Tabachin tree, $2,800 !!!!! ($140 US) Went down the road to another one,,,,same tree....$120 pesos ($6).....lol....better shop around. Us, like many probably, when we first moved here we think the prices are pretty cheap, at least reasonable, then when you have friends with the locals, you realize how much you are paying through the nose!!! Went to the "gringo" chopo lab...got a quote for 3 tests....then went to my lab in Chapala.....one third the price for the same 3 tests !!!
  13. just finished last week taking two mexican friends in their 20's to joco. Had to go early to get in line as they only take a few each day. Open at 8am, we were there by 6:30, 3 already in line. No appointment necessary. They were told what documents they needed. Had to return the next day....as we did very early, gave documents. Then one week later we returned for the actual new card. Yes it was for their 10 year renewal.
