Travel / Behavior of Polish travellers on Planes. [72]

I can imagine Brits doing that as in Poland near my building there is a strip club called New Orleans and every friday/sat nights the bouncers are whacking brits out.Also in Krakow city square they use to run naked and would get away cheap by paying 1100pln as fines.I am glad germans know well how to tackle them.

Imagine if it was in states? they would have to serve a jail time,pay a hefty fine and then get deported.

Feedback / What made you join Polish Forums & whats attractive here? [29]

LOL,I use to read your posts and laugh that you are also baiting them,and they would still fall for it .But you have to admit that without them there is no entertainment here either.I would find there weak points and really play with them and can imagine how upset they got and rant papa ban X,mod ban Y,daddy ban Z,and daddy would hand em a lolipop to shud em up.Years back one of them wanted to meet me and beat me while I made him go bar to bar looking for me while sitting across the atlantic ocean by answering my Polish fone which made him think that i am nearby.The best is I give them a hint to tell them who they got slapped by and em wise men think they are detective Columbo and found who it is:).After reading here i always wonder if brits know what is humour?(Google Rusell peters english joke)

Overall on PF its been fun here so far, even when playing cat and mouse.Amazing how many people post here including doctors(Rybnik),pilots(Skysoulmate),engineers(Wulkan) and ofcourse best of all very successful English Teachers with a bright career in Poland.Best part is that none others are invited to Poland by the Polish Govt except English teachers.

Life / What don't you like about Poland or Polish People? [117]

As someone said in past, people who traveled and worked in US back in 70/80's even 90's made a little fortune,

Still they make that little fortune. working 12 hr 6/7 days living in a shared apartments saving?Infact even now I see people doing the same and saving around 2000$ a month living/doing the same.Where in the world can you be doing a unskilled job working illegally save that much?And Polish women taking care of the elderly even save more,I know some who come here on 6 month visa once a year and take home 10k$ plus presents.I am sure no other country could they do that.

I understand you spend one month every year in Poland, don't you?

NO<6 months every year,I go there every month for 1 month.
Plus cost of living is way cheaper in Poland still and goods like electronics,branded clothes are expensive ofcourse.But lots of other stuff like construction material,labour is way cheaper.I remember when I bought my flat in 2000 the management fee was 40 pln plus maybe 20 pln a month for utilities was like less then 15$ a month to have a flat in the capital of a euorpean country. About medical its way cheaper there I pay around 5200pln a year for 1 person medical insurance there,wheres as here it is 1300$ a month with deductable.

If it wasnt for the kids or the beach we would probably move to Poland permanently as taxes comparatively are way less also.
Also Poland has lots of apportunities,I dont care what people say.In the west it is competative and almost saturated.

yes interesting for you as a Pole!

First I am not a Pole by birth or blood just by naturalisation which is costing me in taxes:D
I came here first time in 2000 while visiting berlin,even my polish wife of 11 years then never told me any good about Poland,I decided to take a train with my friend anyway,liked it because was so cheap(rent a flat for 300$ plus utl of 20$) that came back after a month and since then go there every month for a month.Saw some apportunities and invested. even though wife comes here only 2/3 times a year.Now I still enjoy the cheap high life in Poland which honestly can be very expensive in the west,and meeting high profile politicians and people.Plus travelling in europe/russia is easily accesable in cpl of hours.

In 2008 just surfing the net stumbled upon PF and starting arguing with a group of members here,who I figured were newbees to chat/forums so started winding them and watching the reaction while laughing away.I saw the same reaction as I reacted in 1992 when I was first introduced to the net and joined Microsoft/AOL chats, so was fun playing with the new bees here(which I still enjoy).

PF is turning out to be a good source for any information sometimes with posters from all walks of life and experiences,and love the OFF TOPIC section :))

I joined to read the opinions of foreigners about Poland.
PF has the easy navigating board with attractive fonts and not to mention little silly arguements among members that keep me here:D
Anyone with any other reasons?

Law / Polish wife in the UK cheated on me. Divorce - what now of the kids? [15]

I am a lawyer based in Poland, so I might be able to help you with this.

Sorry buddy I know you are soliciting business here, but your charges are way high almost 5 times more.You had quoted me to charge 500 pln to write 1 damn simple letter for which I paid 100 pln in warsaw.And your field of practice is an allrounder.

UK, Ireland / Why are Polish people, especially women, so disrespectful toward the English? [316]

ca its because most poles have never met anyone else who is not a pole.Its changing rapidly but will take time.I have had friends come to states from Armenia/Russia and they have said they feel at home without people staring at them inquistably even when they were in a group talking in there own language.We are use to foreigners with different colours and language while poland is still in the process, so dont take that personally.But I know lots of Poles living here who are use to that and even when I go to there parties/Functions only the new ones react like that.

Work / Expatriating to Poland... good career move for a young male? [50]

I've never had to pay any tax

Dude stay away from that in Poland,unlike states one cant just go to costco or BJs to buy a cash register and declare what you want on taxes.In Poland cash registers are registered with the tax dept.They have learnt from states and developed it.And unlike states the tax department legally dont have to make a appointment to come check you,they just hop in:)Plus vat is 23% in Poland unlike the sales tax in NJ is 7%(dont know whats in chicago) so the tax dept collects significant amount.Laws are stricter there as all cashiers have to legally give you receipt of merchandise you purchase or they can be fined(owner is not charged)In an incident with my friend his employee refused to operate because his receipt printer was not working.

Plus instead of buying a property you can rent it with option to buy.

Life / How can Polish immigrants complain about other immigrants? [65]

Hence, the feel more superior than Polish.

I have to agree with you Ktos,I have seen that in public how some speak loud and then look around if who is watching them speak.Also you can see arguements on regular basis in Zlota trasy mall in restaurants and shops when they try to belittle the server or the sales person.

I do want to know in Polish opinion that who are more arrogant? Brits or yanks?I have been at super bowl parties in Poland over the years where there are usually more brits then yanks and the rowdy atmosphere.Krakow square in summer weekends is another example.

Also I have seen in some situations when they speak loud and suddenly the quiet polish person starts speaking english and now they just feel challenged and get louder and nastier.
