Respect

From Corrine.

~~~~~~~~~~

A Mexican family was considering putting their grandfather Abuelo in a nursing home. All the Hispanic facilities were completely full so they had to put him in an Italian home. After a few weeks in the Italian facility, they came to visit Grandpa.
"How do you like it here?" asks the Grandson.
"It’s wonderful! Everyone here is so courteous and respectful,” says Grandpa.
"We’re so happy for you. We were worried that this was the wrong place for you. You know, since you are a little different from everyone."
"Oh, no! Let me tell you about how wonderfully they treat the residents,” Abuelo says with a big smile.
"There’s a musician here -- he’s 85 years old. He hasn’t played the violin in 20 years and everyone still calls him ‘Maestro‘!"
"There is a judge in here -- he’s 95 years old. He hasn’t been on the bench in 30 years and everyone still calls him ‘Your Honor‘!"
"There’s a dentist here -- 90 years old. He hasn’t fixed a tooth for 25 years and everyone still calls him ‘Doctor‘!"
"And me -- I haven’t had sex for 35 years and they still call me ‘That Fucking Mexican’.
