SHOCK NEWS - Polish man moves to Poland

One of the recurring characters in the world of OsioĊ‚ is the man who has been renting a room off the donkey for the last year or so. (He's had to endure quite a lot of wanton vandalism, all done in the name of home improvement. Actually, he even participated in some of this destruction).

"Can you give me a hand ripping up the kitchen floor?"
"Of course I can - I am Polish."

Anyway, he decided that finishing his education was something he needs to do, so he decided after a year and a half of working in the United Kingdom, that he should go back to school. He seems sorry to be leaving. He staggered in, quite drunkenly about an hour ago after an emotional night out. He said that he doesn't want to go now because he likes it too much here.

"What the hell is that supposed to mean?" you may ask. "Surely the Poles in England (or the UK generally) are unwanted, even hated." Perhaps this man just goes against the grain of this so-called overwhelming opinion that some idiots post on this forum. Life for Poles here isn't always easy, but sometimes the media, the bigots, the xenophobes, the scaremongerers and the just plain concerned, have got it wrong.

Mr. C. as I shall call him, proved popular with everyone at work, with mates of mine who he met, with many of the random people he met on nights out with other work colleagues, and even with one or two PF members I introduced to him via the wonders of msn. He even (allegedly) had all the drinks he tried to buy this evening paid for on the house. B@stard! And a girl who reacted to him telling her that he's Polish by hugging and kissing him. Double b@stard! (Or good liar)!

I'm happy that he's going though! Maybe he will be able to take some of his experiences of living and working here back to Poland - take some fresh ideas with him, some happy memories, the ability to speak English. I'm happy because I need my entire flat back to myself and a bit of freedom from the dangerous sounds of Disco Polo. It will also be one less person at work who is more popular than myself! I will miss the rent money coming in, and I will miss having a good mate around. He reckons he'll be back in 6 months though.

Good luck back in Poland, Mr. C.

Thank you for that donkey, I enjoyed reading it. A true and unbiased account of one person's experience, a refreshing change from some of the crap you read.

No-one gives a sh!t if there's good news. Imagine how long this thread would be by now if I had typed a load of negative stuff. It could have been about someone moving to the UK rather than away.

There's a negative element in your post. The guy threatened to RETURN !

Perhaps if you said "Should I replace him with a Polish girl, do Polish girls date donkeys?" it may have atracted more attention

Believe it or not, there aren't many Polish women around here. I haven't met any in the last two or three years other than in the Polish delicatessen in a town about 5 miles away. I'm not interested in nationality. Sorry to take the subject a little too seriously.

Okay, so I did meet quite a few Polish women in Poiland, but that's another story.

I'd quite like a holiday in Poland. I'm going to be even shorter of money for the foreseeable future though, so the chances are pretty slim. There are a few people I would have to visit if I do get myself over there.

Where is our favourite storyteller? He was here earlier but sporadically pops in. Any stories of guys who have come back and been disappointed, happy or reformed?

I occasionally hear from my former flatmate. He seems to neither regret coming to the UK nor returning to Poland.


I think that just about sums it up.
