Life / What is with Polish and their indoor plants? [26]

I love plants. They make cleaner air inside a home and make it more inviting. Of course I have lots of them! Spider plant and mother-in-law's tongue are good to have in the bedroom. My place is not too sunny and many plants do not want to grow, but the ones which do not care about bright lite simply thrive. Mostly ferns and spider plants. I have some others but i don't know their names...I'm happy they grow without the sun ever shining on them. My balcony is my little, private jungle in the summer! :)

USA, Canada / Why are Polish restaurants not successful in the USA? [698]

Foods at any restaurants are coming out of can, the tasty marinara sauce in Italian place, the Italian beef, the sauce on your veggies in Chinese place, the frozen fries in most fast food places - all made to make your taste buds scream with flavor.

Polish foods (cooked at home) are WHOLE FOODS, not much out of a can. This makes a huge difference. Have any of you watch a program on TV how processed foods are made? If you did, you'd never want to eat it. Really, fried chicken is OK, as long as it ran in the back yard first and was fed with natural grains. A vegetable salad full of mayo is fine, as long as it was made from vegetables grown in the yard, not out of a can. You see, I have a lunch with some people at work, I have a salad (mayo, olive oil, apple vinegar etc. - made at home), they have a burger from McDonald's or a sandwich from Jimmy Jones, Subway or other place...considering it a good food. Well, it's not. The red , processed meat(if you can even call it that) went through many 'improvements', flavor enhancements etc, before it endead in the bun. Basically, we eat the same food, but what's IN IT it's different. So, the everyday polish food make seem bland, but it's much better for you. At the end, our body cells know the difference. That's when you end up with size 18. Not to mention, I get looks when I say I walked 6 miles last night...

UK, Ireland / Are Polish people importing a new wave of ancient racism into the UK? [402]

People seem to have racism on the brain, even when there isn't any. It's tiring

I totally agree with this one. The 'sensitive' part of people is tiring. Why do people feel so worthless nowadays? Why is every word and statement considered racist?

Do we really live in a touchy-feely world instead of the everyday reality of it? Can't we just pass it and move on?
At the end, we read the same fairy-tale stories as kids, we did and can listen to the same music now, we read the same books, we can listen to the same news and read the same Internet stories...can we not get along?

How typical, attacking America and it's policies. The thread is about Poles. You got you a** kicked here because you expected to have thing provided for you. You had been given opportunities. Just because you did not know how to take them, you are bitter. That's it.

We are talking about people, everyday folks.

I don't exactly follow each and everybody posting here (on PF taht is - not this thread alone) but Havok has plenty of good points all who responded reacted in the typical, miserable Polish way. Why? Toilets and stuff... And, why are mixing 'American way' into it?

Havok tries to tell you his observations (they happen to be right) well, most of them. So, instead of immediately fighting him, think about it. No matter what anybody says, thinking and responding 'the American way' is great. When you debate something in this country, I mean when regular folks talk), they will hear you first - then respond.

Unlike my Polish compatriots, when they want to be heard but they don't know how to listen. It drives me nuts often, when I get a call and my friend keeps talking without listening! The last time I just had to say.."I liked your monologue, would you like to have a dialog now?". I think she did not like it because I did not hear from her for four days. Oh well.

Love / Goal: Meet a nice Polish girl! [62]

There should be a Polish community in Boston...we are everywhere..ya know. Have you tried any Polish dance clubs? You don't need to uproot a girl from Poland, there might be one right here in the USA; growing up in a nice Polish household in Boston.

Love / How do Polish men feel about gender equality? [753]

Big deal. It's just like a commercial of a man sliding fingers over woman's naked body and then farting... (consider it normal). About time we fart in his face when it deems right. :)

Love / How do Polish men feel about gender equality? [753]

After all, women's bodies are far from optimal for efficient and hygienic use of a urinal.

No problem, down with urinals! Since the male bodies are so optimal and efficient, you guys just sit down to do your peeing business just like you have to do for the other. Problem solved. The bathroom would be so much cleaner without the splatter anyway!

Due to my constant pursuit of justice and liberation and in the interest of "equality", I may go on a "pimp walk".

Time and place please, I want to see it!

the U.S. and Canada will be assaulted this summer by the latest feminist tactic called "slut-walks".

Nothing new. Isn't it happening every single summer when the temperature exceeds 75F? There are half naked women everywhere for a couple of months! :) Young and old, thin and fat, black or white. Guess what, I'm actually happy they can... I can. Makes me think of the women wrapped in fabric head to toe.

The male/female relationships can get pretty complicated nowadays. Many people do not want a live-in partner for a while, especially after divorce or a bad break up. The peace and quiet in the house, the clean bathroom, no need for big grocery shopping..live seems to be easier. But, if you are a healthy man or woman, sooner or later you forget about the single life bliss and tend to look for a relationship. Hoping that you get it right the next time around...which seldom happens.

Sure, the wages were shhitty, but they were equally shhitty for both men and women and that's the topic of this thread. Not the economic situation in various countries.

Yeah, that's what I experienced back in Poland. Frankly, I did not know I was a woman (besides the obvious)until I came to this country.Women are treated differently and openly told they are not. The expression of 'glass ceiling' comes to mind.

Food / Polish food at home or out? [57]

Good job Des Essientes. I personally don't believe in the whole low fat marketing. It only 'makes' your body to want more and you end up with more calories. A marketing scam, that's all. Long time ago, when I was going to school and worked as a waitress, people drove me nuts when they ordered a huge steak and a diet soda. Why bother? Get the steak and regular drink. Just don't make it an everyday meal. The same with milk. Forget the blueish low fat milk. Yuck! Have the full 4 or 2%, but a glass only - not a half a gallon at once.

Hmm, maybe I can connect with a guy I was in love with in grade school... :) My... my... that would be a surprise. I tried to Google his name in the past, just for the heck of it, but his name was not foound. So sad.

I believe many of the posters simply do not get what traditional chivalry of Polish men towards women means.

Well, what does it mean? I know that some Polish men can be very disrespectful, but many are not. I observe a very wonderful division of roles in a Polish married couples. He does the manly things around the house, she does the wifely duties. Both very happy. I really don't see my friend chopping wood for a fireplace and I don't see him planting tomatoes in the garden. However, he can cook and feed the children when she is at work. It's all about partnership and respect.

good luck with your sorry life, dude.

Don't get yourself too upset over him or any others posting crap. It's not worth it. Really. It's his, their problem, to feel miserable and not in charge. Perhaps, they have crappy jobs and make less than you and me anyway. Hence, the anger. Nobody feels good when knocked down of a pedestal they built for themselves for centuries.

Love / How do Polish men feel about gender equality? [753]

and by the way, on one occasion a woman hit me because I said "no" to sex. She was fortunate that I did not retaliate. Many women use this 'guys don't hit girls' leverage'.

I think you're pretty damaged when it comes to male/female relationships in general... I've met some of your type. The all knowing macho who has no clue about faucet repair but thinks he is God's gift to women. You ain't. I call the plumber, pay him and never hear any crap.

To comment on other posts: No, I don't want to be a welder or a car mechanic or any other job demanding physicalal strength. Biologically, I was not made for it. From the beginning of times - you chase the rabbit for dinner, I cook it. You're right, I don't want to get my hands dirty.

But, in today's modern world, I want the same salary as the guy who sits at the desk behind me and does the same job as me. That's all I want. Yes, you're most of the time bigger, stronger and do the jobs I don't want to do. By all means, get the salary you deserve and I will wait for you at home cooking dinner dressed as a French maid. Fair enough?

I still do. I don't have too high expectations...Just be showered, have clean clothes on, be able to fix a faucet drip, know some current events...don't rely on GPS for directions...just because you make 75k + you don't have to be oblivious to the normal stuff around you.

I know you have nothing to do with it. My jeans and T-Shirts (and suits I used to wear to work), are made in China too! Don't get me wrong, I wear high hills when going out, sometimes; it's a love/hate relationship with them. Looks good but a pain in the ankles. :) Arrghh, the sacrifice. It ain't worth most of the time.

News / Is it right for Polish citizens/Poles not living in PL to vote? [11]

Unless you are here only for a visit and are going back within a year ot two, yes, you can vote and you should. All others who live here and have American citizenship -- keep your hands off the polls. Let your family in Poland and Polish citizens decide their fate.
