Everyone takes it easy in Britain, you have local newspapers, local radio, football teams and pubs, and that's about it. You don't fret over the politics as much as we do, you're not bombarded with Gazeta Wyborcza and TVN living in a state of permanent catastrophe.
This is what draws people over here, that lack of stress.
I'm having real trouble understanding your situation and how you are seeing things. Everyone I know has stress of some kind and most of it is down to getting through life and hoping that they have enough money to keep their bills paid and a roof over their heads.
Life here can be very stressful.
This is what makes people not care what job they are in - even if it's 200 pounds per week, at least the petrol is dirt cheap.
Petrol is dirt cheap compared to where exactly ? You're talking about £60 to fill up the average family car. It's only cheap if you drive a Polish registered car and escape road tax, MOT and (probably) insurance. Petrol is probably your only running expense.
I changed jobs specifically so I could walk rather than drive to work to cut down on costs.
It's not stress free for all of us. Especially with the nasty comments: not in the papers, not in the internet, but at work. But definitely your life is easier (and the roads go without saying)
You are sounding very self-indulgent.
But she decided that it would be better to fiddle the benefits system and sit on her a**
I hope you shopped her to the authorities.
