/ Why are Poles always so miserable? Why do they never smile?
i wouldn't say that the Polish are miserable or unhappy all the time that would be silly. However i think that there is a certain amount of (over self defensiveness and paranoid) of course its not all Polish people that would be a stupid thing to say.
I am English and have never met a Brit who is so defensive or paranoid as i have the number of Polish that are.
As for smiling, a lot of Polish its fair to say are working in customer service (Coffee shops, Hotels, Fast food restaurants and any other job you care to mention.
My friend said to me 'well if you were working sreving coffee all day and not getting paid very much, would you be smiling, that isn't even taking into consideration the board factor' of dokng the same job again and again and again'
So i sympathise totally with those who don't smile all the time and are called 'miserable' etc. Surely it makes no sense to judge anybody let alone the Polish on their moods when they are working.
My friend looks dead board at work and not friendly at all but you get her out and about and she's wonderful to be with. Everybody has different moods in different situations
