12. when i used to go to puerto rico on vacations people used to
tell me that when they were there, the puerto ricans were nasty to them. well i never, ever had a problem. i don't speak spanish, but i know a little and i would always try to communicate in the limited amount i knew. i was always treated with respect.

i always, no matter, where i am, try to treat everyone with respect from waiters to cashiers. it doesn't cost anything to be nice.
