    i remember being in a club/restaurant in POP which only plays jazz music as background. a guy came in during the night with his female companion, and , after a while, called the waiter over and asked him to play some bachata selections. the owner was incensed, told the waiter to forget about making a bill, and asked the guy to go and seek his entertainment elsewhere. they are the cream of POP society. they were there to listen to Miles Davis, and Billy Holiday, and not to some bachata crooner.
    That's the club I want to go to. Sounds like Skina. Where the owner has some classy taste

    Now, if those people in a controlled and safe environment would still not mingle with people with lower socioeconomic status then yes, that would be being a "comemierda"
    there is nothing unusual about people avoiding barrios. people in every country eschew unnecessary trips to areas of a country which are unsafe. nobody wants to be ducking bullets, if they do not have to. however, that is not the only reason that people from Naco do not hang in Los Mina. they see no common bond between themselves and their gardener.

    IT IS A PROBLEM IN ALL RELATIONS THAT I HAVE. PARTICULARLY WITH WOMEN. LESS SO FOR MEN THAT HAVE A JOB.
    I DO NOT DEAL WITH DOMINICANS ON A SOCIAL LEVEL ANYMORE...FOR THIS REASON. THEY NEED MONEY, I HAVE MONEY, THEY WANT IT

    it is not that easy. Dona Mercedes Vega y Vega y Mas Vega does not care how many home runs he and Sammy Sosa hit during their playing days. they are not buying the house next door, and putting a cockfight arena in the backyard. there will be no scantily clad floozies running from some guy with his pants dropping off his arse in the neighborhood in which she grew up. her ancestors, who came on the Santa Maria, would squirm in their graves.


    This sort of happened to me. I was shopping for a house in Santiago while in the U.S. and my trusted cousin (an attorney) was negotiating for me. I see a house we like via video and send my cousin to start negotiations. The owner would not consider selling to me until he knew my family background. I told him thanks but no thanks, his house sits on the market still and he kept calling my cousin asking me to reconsider. Sorry dude, lost your chance.

    I would be happy with a neighbour that won't sell his house to anyone with just money. You never know nowadays. Don't feel offended.
