    I was at McDonalds and heard the word cara, maybe carra, many times. I think it might have been a command or something.

    I first thought face, but could it have been a command for correr? If not, what else?

    Thanks :)

    Right, but as a command it's put in the third person subjunctive, so it would be corra, oh wait, nevermind, that's too different, heh :p

    Oh yeah, it can, it still doesn't fit the context at all, they weren't buying anything, they were working

    !Corre! = command for correr

    cara = rich/expensive

    If you heard it on the radio, it's probably some Mexican rapping about his g'd up escalade.

    I once consulted for a company named Caro Deporte. Expensive Sports.

    I know you're impressed.
