What's with the unsubstantiated statements that will no doubt prove to be no more than baseless generalizations, stereotypes, or outright lies? Same ole, same ole. Does anyone actually think that even though rightfully challenged, this statement will be backed up in any rational or legitimate way? Unless it's proven, is this statement suggesting that Peruvians who eat at menú restaurants are unable to afford to eat for the whole rest of the day borderline offensive to Peruvians or just straight up offensive? Is this just another example of the usual 'look-at-me' attention getting stupid statement or is this statement simply an example of stupidity itself? Am I being too kind if I think the former, or too harsh if I think the latter?
Many people come to this forum seeking good information. When someone who actually believes they are giving "good advice" which more often than not condones and encourages people to lie - to immigration officials, to potential employers, to potential landlords, etc., how are we to take the rest of their statements and 'stories?' How do you trust and believe someone whose "good advice" is to lie? Don't believe all the people he's advised to lie, because they may have followed his advice and are lying, but it's okay to believe him because he's being open and honest about telling people to lie, and just because he advocates that others lie that doesn't mean that he's lying himself?
Fortunately, those who've been around here longer than a minute or two or who do a bit of further research on the threads know where questionable members stand when it comes to credibility issues. Hopefully the rest are smart enough to know that people can and do say all sorts of crazy, untruthful stuff on the internet. They always seem to ignore requests for proof or to back up their crazy statements or else they just twist the conversation around. Either way, they can't back up what they say. Let's see if this weird statement about Peruvians and menú restaurants is any different or any of these credibility/lying issues are even mentioned.
