Today's word of the day from the Castillian-centric website was "pringado," which it translates as "loser." I've never heard the word in Mexico or Puerto Rico, so I was wondering what phrases y'all may have heard for "loser" over the years. "Perdedor" is the literal translation, but I've also heard "vago" and the more colorful "mala mano" when in Mexico. Let's hear some more!
