Ironies of living in Argentina




On today’s news: Man gets carjacked, but its ok since he’s got insurances.
He goes to the bank, withdraws the insurance payment and gets robbed in a “salidera”, probably marked from within the bank itself.

Did you mean salivera or salifera?

We're sorry, we could not find your word - salidera - in the dictionary.

Five other websites gave the same results, is it slang, or bad spelling, or something else?

Salidera is slang, "salir" means exit, salidera means you get robbed when you exit the bank.

Thanks for the answer.

As I think about it,... it seems very difficult to avoid a salidera. Especially if a person cannot go armed inside the bank.
The word, ambush comes to mind.
I imagine the man was unarmed both times. GLOCKless?

I thought Paraguay was where George Bush had a ranch, not Uruguay?

No Idea, Paraguay and Uruguay are two, very different countries.
