I have visited Poland a while ago, some of them seems very friendly and some of them seems to look at you in a different way ( I am not sure whether it is because I am a foreigner or just because different culture )

Also Call centars and customer support seems to be lacking work, I have tried many times to get in contact with support in Poland however it feels like the support is not as effective as it should be

A few words to describe any people might been seen as dodgy by some.

Although many years since yours truly visited Poland, I continue to have numerous professional contacts with native Polish arrivals where I have worked for umpteen years, and have found on average that educated rank-and-file Poles can tend to be exceptionally confident, strong-voiced, academically sure of themselves, and not likely to tolerate the slightest nonsense about their country!

I suppose adjectives such as opinionated, definite, direct, and unvarnished would be those which best describe contemporary Poles abroad aka here in the States.

I returned to my second home of Katowice today for the weekend, and was struck by the rise in standard of living here - and how pleasant and cultured Silesia actually is today.

It's a far cry from the Poland of the past, where far too many people thieved from their neighbours and used the war and communism as an excuse for same.

During the daily grind it's easy to miss how much things have changed. Last year I started talking long walks (as exercise) and seeing parts of town I hadn't seen in many years and was generally surprised at how much nicer they look than they used to... Even the worst neighborhood in town (fenced in by a river, the main railroad tracks, an semi-industrial area and a large cemetery) showed a lot of improvement.

And shopping is entirely different, the other day I accidentally started pushing someone else's cart and she just laughed as she pointed it out (I can remember when that would have led to a nasty scene).

Apropos, you must then have heard the well-known quip about travelling by train after dark throughout Communist Europe during the early '60's. English chap en route with his friend opens the window and sticks his hand out of his compartment as the train speeds along through the countryside. After a few minutes, he retracts his hand and finds somebody just spat on his watch. "Ah!", he exclaims, "we must be in East Germany!" An hour or so later, his hand stretched out of the compartment, he retracts it once again. This time, his watch is gone.

"Well now, we must be passing through Poland!"

Describe Polish people in few words: suspicious, suspicious, suspicious.
With nothing to gain from being suspicious.

Ain't it the truth though?

They had mighty good reason to be suspicious, Rich. If you were faced with an unknown quantity, bereft of a democratic underpinning, a multi-ethnic society which you were essentially forced into sharing, if you were daily in fear of the thought police etc., you'd not be exactly a babe in the woods, trusting all like some innocent lamb, would you?

At least in their minds Poles are free. Contained but free. Crucified on cross to praise the cross and while on cross to spit on Svetovid. Still, I telling you cross is not the problem but greed of few Italian and Greek families that rule over Sarmatians (ie Slavs). Christ is great enough to love Svetovid. Only love in Christ I feel. See, it is greed of western Europe, of Greaks and Italians who says that Christ and Svetovid don`t go hand in hand. They speak so in order to hold down us Sarmats (ie Slavs). But They go. In SLAVA custom They go hand in hand. Then the Israeli PM Netanyahu, in Israel, say how Jews and Slavs had contacts in time of Roman Republic, in 500 BC. Speak so on the contrary what speak those who hold us Sarmats down.

Now, is it shame to talk of it what hold Poles? In era of Internet? No, its not shame but its forbidden. But not on this forum. Obviously.

Thank God for that. For I am here to announce you how will Poland and Poles arise never to fall again. Never again house of slavery. Never!

But truth must flow.
