Some habits are hard to break


No matter how long I have been in Spanish speaking countries, I still hesitate and sometimes even enter bathrooms that are marked with an “M” on the door. Obviously “M” is for “mujeres”(which means “women”) and not for “men” but I have such an ingrained response I can’t help it.

I have somewhat similar issues at the sink regarding “C” which is for “caliente” (meaning “hot”, NOT “cold”).
