Are you a big fun or a big fan ? :-)
Joke aside, I'm a fan of JPII as well although I'm not a Pole. I'm just a polite foreigner...

Someone should tell that to the little old ladies that after church on Sunday try and jump the cue's at the shopping centre's lol....

Jump the cue's? They play snooker or pool? LOL

I've heard many here admit that Poland is not a polite nation. From Poles themselves. Although I don't share in that view completely, I wouldn't describe Poland as having polite people in general. You meet good and bad everywhere. I've met many polite and cracking people here.

Plywood where did you live in the USSR? What's your actual nationality? Where do you live right now? Hope this's politically correct enough... :)

The cue's what? (... and that's just the tip of the... iceberg?)

Some are polite, some aren't. I've had trouble with one or two who couldn't seem to grasp some things about politeness (particularly by swearing too much).

I had some impolite grunting types this morning on the tram. I believe in giving up my seat to elderly passengers but there were several of them so I figured that I'd stay seated. They can't all sit down. They saw I was foreign and started grumbling away, cursing in Polish. Ignorant twats, assuming that I couldn't understand them. I made myself even more comfortable in my seat then.

There are similar types in Scotland but, generally, they will thank you for giving up your seat. Here, they expect you to so screw that. I paid my money, I was there first, I expect a seat. It is a contract after all.

How did they figure that out?
Btw do you still have strong accent? I also wonder how Russian accent sounds to Poles when they speak Polish...
Seanus 15 | 19,706

I don't have a strong accent and I wasn't speaking to anyone as I was alone. I don't exactly look Polish although some have thought so.

I always give my seat to the elderly on those rare occasions I use the public transport (twice a year or so). That`s what a true Krakowian does. When he/she doesn`t, people know you are not from Krakow, not even Polish. :):):)

Tut tut tut, and there i was thinking you were a nice guy.
Well that's that.

I am of course only messing, if people don't want to give up their seat they do not have to.
I had a similar experience in Krakow entering a bank, a babcia (auld one) walked up to the door and seen I was going into the bank, we were both outside.

She stopped in front of the door, expecting me to reach around her and push it open for her, which I did.
I thought she was an old cow, I had to do things and could not stand around arguing with someone who is that far gone.

Like everything in life it is only nice if people appreciate it.

Whatever, Sheep paid his money, he wants to sit, so what? Be careful of the old ; they'll live your youth for you.

I have a better strategy: I don`t expect any gratitude. Everything I do for other people is for a kiss only, sometimes even without it.

My reward will be in Heaven. I hope yours will be too. :):):)

Whatever, Sheep paid his money, he wants to sit, so what? Becareful of the old ; they'll live your youth for you.

The problem is that one day you will be old too and we`ll see how your attitude changes then. :):):)

I like your attitude. :):):)

Why don`t you open your PM box which is closed now so that we could have a private chat about Polish Catholicism? :):):)

Hey man, I see plenty of old guys in my neighborhood tramping through the snow to wherever. I plan to be one of them.

Now pregnant lady, different story, she'll get my seat.

That`s good you don`t forget about it. I have already learnt one rule in life: what you give today is what you will get tomorrow. (licentia poetica by pawian!)

Now pregnant lady, different story, she'll get my seat.

Congratulations! When is the baby due?

They have plenty bloody strength when they want to. They totter along slowly until they see a place and, woomph, they are in like a shot. Supergran, LOL

They tut away and say how badly the youth of today behave are raised. Go back along the family tree and we find out exactly who raised them.

Excuse me, I happen to be an elbow not an arse hole.

Tut, Some people can't tell their arse from their elbow.

I don`t expect any gratitude.

My reward will be in Heaven.

Sounds to me like you expect gratitude...

I hope yours will be too.

No thank you, I am fine with out your heaven.




Poland is not an exceptionally rude or polite country.
There are cultural differences in what is perceived to be polite and rude here and there.




Why are all these threads usually about how great the posters country is in comparison to "your" country?
