The most useless things in Poland

I feel like having a 5 minute rant as well!!!!. Try and think of the most useless things in Poland.

1) Wrist watches (Polish people have no concept of time or punctuality)
2) Indictors on cars (they never use them)
3) Football pundits (They wheel out the same geriatrics for the past 5 years)

Please feel free to add:-

Inkrakow........to be honest, its bl**dy dangerous driving a right hand drive on the roads here!!!!...when you are overtaking a large truck, you have to put half the car on the other side of the road before you can see to get past it, AND watch out for other drivers overtaking you at the same time!!!!

Well, I can't agree as I haven't had any problems driving RHD cars here over the last 10 years!

Cigarettes and alcohol are the wost things in Poland. They either smoke themselves to death or drink themselves to death. The roads in Poland are dreadful and Poles kill themselves every day needlessly too. Hospitals are little better, in fact I visited my Mother in Law in a Polish hospital in Czestochowa-my God-something out of the Dark Ages! Little wonder Polish hospitals are called wykonczalnia! I have not been to Czestochowa for a long time but can things in such a country improve?

Its dangerous overtaking period, right hand dr=ive adds 5% risk evaluation.

Don't worry. They are working on it. Some have already been relocated to UK. More to come.

Dogs should never be kept in flats. Since leaving the UK, I have waited 8 years to have a dog again. I take her for walks twice a day, no cars around, just beautiful forests and lakes. This is the heaven that Michal does not understand.

2) Indictors on cars (they never use them)

whilst poland undoubtedly has the worst drivers in europe, compared to drivers in my local uk city they are pretty good at using the indicators...
