Tea is fine, as long as you know that the economy tea bag has been used several times and there is no chance of a biscuit! ;0) Oh and don't take your coat off because they wont have the heating on!
Actually it's quite serious considering over 2 million people are out of work, I've got 2 friends that have lot their jobs, one is a solicitor and the other is a financial advisor - not good.
I'm interesting to know what the media in Poland are saying about the financial crisis?
You're right, it is very serious.
I recently changed jobs (I work in banking) and where I used to work, they're making people redundant. I was very lucky to move when I did.
I now work in debt management and have to deal with people that are way over their overdraft limits, can't pay their loans, mortgages and credit cards. It's not nice as you can imagine.
The sad thing is that most of the people that are struggling with credit cards etc never had the means in the first place to maintain payments. Banks have been throwing money at people for years and the debt on their books is mainly of their own making.
What staggers me on a daily basis is the number of people from countries like Poland that owe so much money and are in way over their heads. The bank I work for have even had to hire people for their foreign language skills - that's how serious the problem is.
I'd also be interested to know how the British recession is being covered in the Polish media and also what is the attitude of the Polish to debt ?
