/ Why do majority of Polish are afraid to admit their nationality?
I never lie about my origin. I'm Polish. I live in Wales.
But its funny sometimes, when I met a nice girl in a club. She turns around to me smiling and asking: - where are you from ?
- which part of Poland? (standard question) :-)
- Where are you from ?
- Ahh! I love Amsterdam!
(Poland - Holland)
Havok - your question in the topic is tendentious. It assumes that it is true that Polish people are afraid to admit their nationality.
You imply that it is true.
Anyway. I have some funny stories with my country people.
I was waiting for a train in Borth. It was late evening and there were maybe 4 people on the platform.
Some guy had started talking to me and we engaged in a conversation when I heard a young couple speaking Polish:
"...A jak wrocimy to zrobisz mi tak dobrze jak zawsze, a potem zrobimy sobie dzidziusia. Fajnie ze nas nikt tutaj nie rozumie." or something like this.
She was talking to his boyfriend about how they going to play tonight :-) And then she said: "Its funny nobody can understand us here". Then I stood up and said "Ja rozumiem!" (I can !). And then she turned red , went silent and the train arrived :-)
I was sitting on a bench looking at the Cardigan Bay, when two girls asked me (in English) if they can sit with me. After a while I heard them saying in Polish "He smells nice , must be waiting for somebody..." :-)))
Sometimes its worth to wait with "breaking the cover" ;-)
