3. You might say ´vos´ or ´tu´, but in plural you will always use the polite form

5. You think ´ahorita´ is an acceptable word 

… and diminuish other words aswell. Right, mamita?

6. You think a coche is something for children, not for adults

7. You bump into little misunderstandings and discussions with people from another part of Latin America (or Spain) about what is the ´real Spanish´
