Doesn't this sentence mix up "tu" and "você", and call them both in the same sentence? :S

Weird, but, to be true, this is the way we normally speak....

Oh okay! So is it a bit like Argentine Spanish, where they use "vos" but "te"? If it's the usual way of speaking that's useful knowledge :)

Yeah... portuguese has some many rules that, when we meet someone speaking closer to what is correct, we may find him strange.... so... mixing tu/você, sometimes not using verbs conjugation, prepositions, etc. is quite usual....
