INTRODUCTION
Eric: Hi everyone, and welcome back to SpanishPod101.com. I'm Eric.
Laura: And I'm Laura!
Eric: This is Must-Know Mexican Slang Words and Phrases, Season 1, Lesson 13. In this lesson you'll learn Expressions to Describe Someone you Truly Dislike.

SLANG EXPRESSIONS
Eric: The expressions you will be learning in this lesson are:
Laura: sangrón, sangrona
Laura: fodongo, fodonga

Eric: Laura, what's our first expression?

Laura: [SLOW] sangrón, sangrona [NORMAL] sangrón, sangrona
Eric: Listeners, please repeat.
Laura: sangrón, sangrona
[pause - 5 sec.]
Eric: Use this slang expression when you want to describe someone as overbearing in an arrogant manner to the point of being annoying. It also means that someone is mean. Be careful when you use this word, because older people might get offended.
Eric : Now let's hear an example sentence.
Laura: [NORMAL] No seas sangrón, prestame tu celular. [SLOW] No seas sangrón, prestame tu celular.

Eric: Listeners, please repeat.
