Yeah, I know, I shouldn’t use bad language and I apologize for the French. But with a title like “why treating Ticos like shit”, I knew I would get your attention. And indeed treating Ticos like shit is not right.
Why not? Well, everything you do when you live in Costa Rica, should be like any good and decent guest behaves.
I often see Ticos who treat the Nicas the same way. For those who don’t know what Nicas are, they are the people who come from the country next door, Nicaragua. They come here to work hard and earn a living, trying to get a better life. So we should treat them well too, don’t you think so?
On the other hand, we are different than they are, aren’t we? We know everything so much better. We are better educated, smarter and have a lot more money. They, the Ticos, are uneducated, stupid and poor.
