Your Polish friends - why do you regard them as such?

My stories were true. His were cock&bull nonsense! I've never known any Pole to have touched cocaine. If you can't see that this thread was designed to bring out positive stories then you are blind!!

Seanus, my stories are all absolutely true. Just because you've never known any Pole that touched cocaine doesn't mean that none have. Stop this idiotic inductive reasoning. It makes you look really stupid. Moreover my stories are positive and your stories, if positive, are also boring and pathetic. I am going surfing now so if you, or the cadre of angry British expatriates on this forum, see fit to attack me yet again don't think I am cowed because I do not respond immediately.

It's you looking too much into it, DE. It's obvious that some Poles do cocaine. I just said that I'd never met any.

Boring? What, because they are realistic and not full of drug-fuelled wildness?? It's the little things that make a difference.

To summarize and generalize a little(sorry Seanus) it seems that we Poles are basically "hard working, all-plumb-knowing junkies that will help you with your thing in a phone call". i admit that i have never thought of myself like that. Cheers lads! Finally came to know everything about myself. GTG ring my mama.

"hard working"? Maybe so in England but not in Poland. The productivity in Poland is very low and it seems that there is a lot of f..cking around in Polish firms (I won't talk about government offices where they are not very tired when they leave work at night and where plants are well watered). Poles "do a lot of hours" on the job but very little work, at least in Poland.

From my observations and now from reading stories from others, it seems foreigners in Poland only really like to have 'friends' if they can help them when in need. Most of the time it is not a 2 way relationship. The Polish people will help or atleast try to help when ever asked but the favour is very rarely returned. Invitations are usually from the Poles, not from the foreigner. Most Ex pats I know, basically are users. How many do you know that offer help etc just as much as their Polish friends?

Indeed. Try getting anything from a Polish person from around December 19th-January 10th or during July/August - it's an absolute waste of time. Then we get the incredibly unprofessional "don't know, send an e-mail" attitude on the phone from many businesses. And let's not forget about the fact that many people don't even try and sell products - I've been to one trade fair today, and the utter lack of interest from people working on stands is unbelievable.

Anyway, that same laziness makes them great friends, because they always have plenty of energy for doing things :D

@Delph: re business attitude, it is beyond understanding! How many times do they disappear???? ;) Just now I have a personal case in Katowice (I have even contacted Doug thru mps). Although I had ordered work, which the guy had agreed to do, we had agreed on the price (or rather I had accepted his price because suitable to me), when I asked the guy for his bank account number so I could make a money transfer right away, he simply disappeared and did not answer my phone calls, sms's, mails.... The result is that I'll go to Katowice next week to talk to him. It's rather common that they accept work and then disappear. It beats me. Some Pole told me once that the reason is that Poles are not used to speak their minds. I suppose that being isolated + communism don't help in social matters...
