Customer Appreciation Day 09/16

Once again I am participating in http://latinaish.com/ 's Spanish Friday. Even though I have to use Google translate, I am finding this exercise is helping me with my Spanish. For English please scroll down.


Después de una semana dura aquí en Gotera, fue difícil para mí encontrar un destinatario para el día de mi agradecimiento al cliente. Me estrujaba el cerebro, tratando de pensar en alguien que trajo una sonrisa a mi cara esta semana. Se me ocurrió no una, sino cinco, los clientes de tamaño medio litro de la Tienda Juanito.

1 El niño en la bicicleta porque es el más cortés. Cada día, al hacer su compra le digo "gracias" y él responde: "y usted".

2 Todas las niñas de toda la calle. Porque todos ellos son tan lindos y me llaman "niña Jenny"

3 La niña de vuelta de la esquina. Ella siempre se envían aquí con sus dos hermanos pequeños, cuidadosamente navegar por nuestra calle muy transitada y esperando pacientemente mientras deciden lo que quieren comprar con los 10 centavos madre les dio.

4 El niño que asiste a la iglesia dos puertas más abajo. Todos los adultos mandarlo a comprar sus bebidas y patatas fritas y lo que no. En 3 horas, llama a mi puerta al menos 10 veces, y cada vez se ve obligado a decirme que hay abejas en mi caso el pan. Grietas me hacia arriba.

5 Mis vecinos hija porque ella es siempre tan entusiasta. Todo lo que compra es lo mejor que ha tenido.

Estos chicos me hacen sonreír, iluminaría mi día y me dan esperanza para el futuro.



After a rough week here in Gotera, it was hard for me to find a recipient for my customer appreciation day. I racked my brain, trying to think of someone who brought a smile to my face this week. I came up with not one, but 5, pint sized clients of the Tienda Juanito.

1 The little boy on the bike because he is the most polite. Every day when he makes his purchase I tell him "gracias" and he replies "y usted".

2 All the girls from across the street. Because they are all so cute and call me "nina Jenny"

3 The little girl from around the corner. She is always sent here with her two tiny siblings, carefully navigating them on our busy street and patiently waiting while they decide what they want to buy with the .10 cents mom gave them.

4 The little boy who attends the church two doors down. All the adults send him to purchase their drinks and chips and what not. In 3 hours he knocks on my door at least 10 times, and every time he is compelled to tell me that there are bees inside my bread case. Cracks me up.

5 My neighbors daughter because she is always so enthusiastic. Everything she buys is the best she has ever had.

These kids make me smile, brighten my day and give me hope for the future.

Does the first kid says " y usted" or "a usted," when you say "gracias," because I think the latter is the correct answer.

You're probably right. I always assumed he was saying "and thank you" But we all know what assuming does
