5. Generally, Polish women despise bragging, the "American way" of evaluating oneself. Being modest pays off when others loose points due to their wild imagination and an excessive self-esteem.
That's very stereotypical - the "American Way" comment. I've seen Brits
I've worked with in the past (automotive industry), out-brag Americans
to the point of being ridiculous. They talked about everything from the town
they lived in, to places they've been
on "holiday," to how much they can drink
, to their local or favorite football
club, to how much money
they make... shall I continue? ...
I've seen Polish
men do this too... Friday or Saturday night at the club, to pay a measly $2 or $5 entrance fee, they have to pull out a wad of money (their entire pay for the week, no doubt), and hand the doorman a $50 or $100 to pay that tiny fee, making sure anyone within a 30 foot radius sees all
the money they have. Again, ridiculous.
This isn't an "American" thing. Oh, I did it too occasionaly when I was younger, but the fact that you have a penis and too much testosterone coursing through your system makes you feel you need to do this.
No, it's not an ethnic
thing; it a maturity
