: Why are young Polish people so rude and bad in USA
Is it just in USA? The rudeness of young Polish people terrifies me, specially out in the nature where I live and work. Why are Polish young generation so rude, always very cocky and so so slick. Trying to rip off local businesses. On top of that, they have no manners. It's down right scary. Here in USA, every time we ran into young polish crowd, we always have bad experience. I live in the mountains to be around nature. I know most owners of local businesses, cops and camp ground owners in the area (most are my neighbors) that absolutely hate Polish costumers. Unfortunately lots of Polish people like to camp, swim, kayak and fish so the local owners put up with them. Examples:
When we go hiking, everybody on the trails are nice, will chat for few minutes, smile, wave, then you bump into a crowd and all you get is dirty looks, then you hear them speaking Polish. My niece came from Poland last summer and on our first hike in Catskill Mountains, she could not understand why we say Hello to people on the trail. WTF, everybody says hello.
Camping and Polish crowd is always an eye opening. They are the loudest campsite, completely drunk, get in fights with other campers, break all the rules including cutting trees and in the morning leave all garbage behind and drive away. One time I went to talk to bunch of them ready to drive away with trash all over the place. I nicely asked them in Polish will they pick up their trash. Well, will never do that again.
Same thing with fishing, they almost always keep illegal size fish or illegal number (hiding them in the trunk), use illegal gear, are so loud that they ruin everybody's day and again leave trash behind. And it seams like they always insist on breaking all the beer bottles on rocks so it's harder to clean up after them.
The locals here sell wood on the side of the road where you take a bundle and put money in the wooden box. Guess what, it's always the Polish crowd that gets in trouble as the owners have hidden cameras and report them to my local cop which always tells me ALL ABOUT IT knowing that I'm Polish (polish flag on my house)
Speaking of flags, this spring, one of the camp ground took 12 large European flags and put them in the entrance of the camp ground as most of his costumers are from Europe. Around May I noticed that all flags were there except Polish. So I stopped in ready to hear about how he is fed up with POLAKS and took the flag down. I asked the owner what happened to the Polish flag, the only one missing. He said it got stolen. I burst in laughter, he didn't think it was funny.
It's gotten so bad that I don't tell anyone that I'm Polish. Thankfully I came here as a kid and have no accent. I should not be a shamed of being Polish. And it is always the young Polish crowd that barely speaks any English, which means they were raised in Poland. My parents raised us to be good, polite, honest, help others. Where is this new generation coming from. Just scary.
