Go and cry at him!
Did someone ever send you a lot to complain? Do you know that the expression “go and cry in montoto” came from a true story? This Montoto is not a fictional character but was a person of flesh and blood.
Mario Montoto was an employee of Banco Provincia de Buenos Aires. A strict, honest and highly applied type in solving labor issues. As is normally said, an exemplary official.
For this reason, when there was a problem when cashing a check, the cashiers referred customers to Montoto, using the phrase “go cry to Montoto.” Because Mario always solved the problems in an effective way.
