Word of the Day Wednesday

(say mAHl cree AH doh or mAHl cree AH dah)

Malcriado = bad-mannered/rude

Example (a real conversation that I had with my taxi driver yesterday):

taxi driver - That's a nice place. How much do you pay in rent?
me - You shouldn't ask that question. It's malcriado!
taxi driver - You're right, I'm sorry.

If people in Mexico have as much tact as the people in Honduras, I'm sure you'll get A LOT of use out of it. ;)
