When i told the Polish lady where i am from, she said i am very lucky to be here in London because i am very "poor". I am Brazilian, she asked if we have roads in Brazil and she told me about mobile telephones and how useful they are here.
This is a type of Polish person - particularly female. I lived in Poland for several years, and knew only nice, well-informed, well-educated people. I then, over the past seven years in the UK, widened, shall we say, my Polish circle (not exactly by choice), and have encountered the 'other' sort of Polish woman ... the ignorant battle-axe who thinks she knows it all, including how to maximise benefits available. She also knows all the Primark SKU numbers and product location by shelf.
These women, I say with absolute certainty and no apology, are monsters. I am sorry that you are living with one. Tread very carefully around her. She will throw out comments to the dozen, considering them wisdom, whereas in fact they will range from the amusing to the deeply offensive. She will, if she needs anything at all, get it from you if you show the least 'weakness' in her eyes (more commonly translated as 'niceness' in a sane world), and she will also, if she gets the chance, revile you and your 'foreign' habits and 'beliefs' to all she can (that is just for fun - that is her entertainment). She will dominate the house, she will consider everybody else beneath her, she will think it fine to have vodka parties until dawn, but if you once wake the baby (especially when she has a hangover), woe betide you ...
And, if you really annoy her, she will somehow turn everyone in the house against you and have you thrown out - seriously.
These women are poison. So I suggest you smile politely and have as little to do with her as you possibly can. And if she comments about Brazil again, just walk out of the room. Or tell her she knows nothing, but then you will be annoying her which is, as I say, a dangerous game to play.
I have such wonderful, clever, thinking Polish friends - but that is not the type you are with here. You are with the Schrolka.
