He quickly apologizes, quickly backs out, and shuts the door. I ran out into the hallway and down the hall and demanded the key. He was nice about it and handed it over. In his fairness I'm sure he was looking for something he may have left in the move, but still how many skeleton keys are out there in these ramshackle apartments?

    note to self, immediately change locks and garage door codes when purchasing new home..........

    I like how people feel the need to use the "i'm not racist" disclaimer when saying someone is from Mexico. Has "Mexican" officially become a derogatory term?
    That entire part wasn't necessary to the story. And yes, Mexican is a derogatory term if he isn't actually, you know, Mexican.

    well yeah, but it's just not something I keep in the forefront of my mind. I want to remember right away, not 6 months later.

I had gotten home from working out, we were having a party at our house, I was in the shower while the cops were sweeping through the house to make sure everyone was out. Lady cop comes into the bathroom (our lock was broken) telling me that I need to get downstairs. I almost fell down screaming and soapy.

    How is Mexican derogatory? There is plenty of slang for it that would be but stating a person's nationality is not.

    That'd be like calling every asian person you came across chinese. How is it not racist?

    The entire thought behind it is racist, that every latino looking person must be mexican.

    I do agree that people use it as slang and don't mean it to be racist but that's exactly what it is.

    Calling a Salvadorian "mexican" is rude and ignorant, but certainly not racist.
