What does "No mames güey" mean. I hear Mexican boys say it all the time.
This is a coarse phrase. In Mexico, we use it only with close friends. It means that a person makes a mistake or you are disagree with him/her.
I hope it helps you!
No mames, is literally translated as " dont suck" (mamar- to suck)
and güey is a commonly used term by mexicans, when using it among friends its okay to say, but can be offensive depending on how you use it. There are some other threads about the word if you search the word.
anyway, i think a mexican would be more precise
hope it helps
Depending on the context it means:
You got to be kidding me!
Don´t fuck with me!
I don´t believe it!
Are you serious?
It can be regarded as foul language, but it all depends. It couls also be really cool in certain circles. For some it would be harsh, for others it would be normal, and for others it would be mandatory to use it.
Separate names with a comma.
