(Non-alphabetical character)

guest


n. 1) in general, a person paying to stay in a hotel, motel or inn for a short time. 2) a person staying at another's residence without charge, called a "social guest." An important distinction is that a non-paying guest is not owed the duty of being provided a safe boarding space, as is a paying customer. Thus if a social guest trips on a slippery rug, he/she has no right to sue for negligence, but a paying guest might. 3) an "automobile" guest is one who is a passenger without paying, as distinguished from a taxi fare, bus rider or one who has paid a friend to drive. However, the so-called "guest statute" may give a non-paying passenger the right to sue. An automobile guest is somewhat (but not entirely) analogous to the "social guest" in a residence. See also: guest statute invitee

    Nací en la ciudad de Guadalajara y el idioma inglés aunque no me atrae mucho, considero es necesario solo como una herramienta de comunicación básico. Lo he estudiado en diferentes etapas de mi vida desde chico. Ademas cuento con parientes en Canadá y E. U. A. Quiero mejorar en el inglés por lo menos un 30% más.

    Crazy Indie rock and cats lover, genuine, creative, annoying and lovable! The kind of person you will be always happy with : D I am not a party girl, love the peace of my bedroom, love to read, to draw... It seems kind of boring but I would say I have a different conception of & quot; having fun& quot;... I have it, definitely. Hope to find someone that I can feel related to, start an awesome friendship and be able to help each other to improve language skills. See u then :)
