Gracias! I figured the dictionary might be wrong. Time to find a good offline resource.

comment ¿Donde se crió? o ¿Donde crió?
To me, this is similar to what I do to my kids all the time when they ask, 'Do you know what time it is?' or 'Can I go?'. Sometimes the jokes are just for me.

I don't have the book in front of me but a representative sentence would be, "Sería mejor que repartiera periódicos en vez de buscarte trabajo."

comment Why “buenas noches” when it's only one night?
I'm curious how the "original" Spanish you hear in Spain reflects courtesy. I understand that Usted is more commonly used but are there other indicators that someone speaking Spanish from another country might not be familiar with?

Can you provide an example of a difference that would indicate this 'courtesy' variation in the language?
