Great to see you're back!

Your help is always appreciated.

Something that came to mind as I write this, maybe it is off topic, maybe not, a long time ago I was in Orlando, FL and went in a Pizza Hut with a friend. Then noticing that we were latinos, the waitress gave us our check and wrote the following note "Courtesy not included" and then she drew a smiley face on the check.

Knowing before hand that latinos can be jerks when it comes to niceties, tips, and the like I didn't take offence I just really got the message that a tip would be appreciated.

We, latinos, in general, need to step up and be more upfront in expressing appreciation for kind people like you who helps us with the language.
