Assunto:  What do you think? the customer is not always righ
 
Mensagem: 

      Hi Dale, interesting insight of yours! thanks a bunch.
      As for countryman, I thought its meaning was that of "rustic" (even too naive), when I used the word.

     Indeed, "paisano" in Brazil is used in military circles to talk about non-military people.

     PP.
