The gardner has been dumping lawn clippings into the trash can instead of the lawn and garden clippings can. I need to put a sign on the cans stating what they're for before the trash company fines me. How do I say "trash only" or "gargage only" for the one can and "lawn and garden clippings" or something to that effect for the other? Other than profanity in French, Greek, and Korean, among others, I'm monolingual. he he

recortes del césped solamente= lawn clippings only, basura solamente = trash only. mojado = wetback, if you'd like to throw that in.

You need one sign that says "[b]Grasso Hero[/b]" and another one that says "[b]Grasso Hero No![/b]".

mattja, "trash/garbage only" would be "solamente basura". "lawn and garden clippings" is a trickier one. Probably "solamente jardineria" will do the trick . He should be able to get the concept.

Just do what I do on the Bus: Say everything in English and use the approriate accent!

Why don't you by the guy an English/Spanish dictionary for Christmas. I'm sure he'd appreciate it. Then again, he might urinate in your azalias. Ho ho ho!

You need a sign that says "Gringos solamente." If only I had a nickle for every honda I've seen that said "Powered by Mexican." I want a bumper sticker that says "Powered by 4895."

Simple. Your signs should read thus: Trash - Pinche cabron bueno para nada cabesa de palo hijo de tu pinche puta madre! Pones la basura en este bote, baboso! Clippings - Chingado! Aqui pones lo que cortes de el secate. Malagradecido, pendejo, idiota, imbecil, cecos de mierda! Intiendes? Sopla me! I know it's kind of long, but it's always best to be polite if at all possible. Hope this helps.

Tell him "El mono de muerta esta en mi pantalones." When he learns that the Monkey of Death is in your pants, he'll leave you the hell alone. The go out and find another gardener. [;D]

AR-15gal, My post was sincerely intended as sarcastic humor. The resulting assault of your sensibilities was an unfortunate result that I do apologize for. No harm meant. Just reminiscing the fond words my mother would say to me as she sent me off to elementary school when I was a child. [:D] To anyone else my ill chosen words may offend, I would delete them, but AR-15gal has chosen to immortalize them herself by quoting them. As my penence, may I be cursed with the gas of a 20 gal. hoya de frijol rancio.
