no TE gusta and no ME gusta is just a letter. Sadly, the meaning is worlds apart.
no TE gusta means You don’t like something
no ME gusta means that I don’t like something
No wonder I didn’t understand why Eduardo didn’t like the tie after he left the store when he said it was his favourite tie in the store. He didn’t say no ME gusta. He said no TE gusta. He thought that I didn’t like it!!!
Communication is so very important and sometimes I get a big fat F on my report card.
We are still going to take a second look at the ties to make sure that we have the best tie for the outfit but at least my sense of frustration/perplexity is gone. And I don’t mind this second look because after all…. these clothes are going to be immortalized in photographs.
