The Difference between Mexican and American Work Ethic

American Work Ethic:
If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.


Examples:
Tim the Tool Man Taylor
American Foreign Policy
American National Policy

Mexican Work Ethic:
If it's broke, destroy it 'til it's fixed.


Examples:
My bathroom

My bathroom door hasn't closed fully since we moved here....so they chopped at the door with a kitchen knife and removed it from the hinges and dropped the door lower to put the screws in new wood

The shower drain wasn't working well, so they tore it out, and filled the shower floor with cement for some reason

And I'm sure you remember the toilet? They tore a hole in the wall and the floor....
