Sure polish people steal and there is absolutly nothing wrong with stealing from foraigners.The germans were robbing Poland for centuries ,same for russians,austrians,swedes and others.brits french spaniards portugese were stealing all over the world.Some steal as we speak.polish people still have a lot of stealing to do before they even the scores.Besides that, y do westerners make such a big deal of dirt poor polish person(?) taking a little bit since they all r so wonderfull and wealthy???

Stealing is stealing. And most Poles who steal, steal from other Poles.

before they even the scores

What score, why 'even' anything.?

y do westerners make such a big deal of dirt poor polish person

Why do you use "y" and not 'why'? And provide a source for your nonsense that "westerners" make a "big deal" about anything.

r

Keep ur textspeak 2 urself, u chav.

so wonderfull and wealthy

Not all are "wonderful" and wealthy. And Poland isn't a particularly poor country. People steal anywhere. Most who steal, do it from greed, a few from necessity. Very few to "even the score".

There are some thieves here, like everywhere. It was more a thing of the past to go into Germany and steal their cars. Times are better now :)

There are certain cultural differences between countries when it comes to stealing. Neighbours engage in petty theft, in villages especially.

The usual items stolen are chickens and fruit. part of the problem is the lack of fences - the border between farms is usually marked by a line of turned turf, and this is an obvious target for getting one over the neighbour. And the spark for decades of low-level warfare. My parents-in-law suffer from this whenever they come to babysit. The chickens can be killed (and frozen), but the tomatoes and fruit remain.

In the suburban context the focus shifts somewhat. If you try to rebuild a broken fence, the neighbour will agree to everything, then when the old fence has been dismantled he will say that is was originally put up in the wrong place.

Also, if your plot is not being lived on, it is open season for the neigbour to dump anything he wants there - even to pump out his septic tank.

This are alien environments for many people on this forum - hence the kneejerk reaction along the line "there are thieves in every society", which is obviously also a valid remark. However, "opportunity makes the thief" is also true and has shaped this very much peasant society.

Do you know of a society devoted to thievery in Poland? Like a nationalised one?

Polish people lived through the war years , then had to deal with Russian occupation , and it became normal to lie , cheat and steal in order to survive....Some people were much better at it than others....

The people who went through these times passed on their ways to the next generation , and for some this less honest way of life became normal....

These days you often have people who are quite well off , living in areas where they are surounded by poor people...In such cases there is always going to be the temptation to take from somebody who it appears can afford to replace the stolen items...

I myself have had a load of stuff stolen by village youngsters who no doubt think i am a rich Englishman...The fact that the Police are a bit useless is not much of a detterent...!

Are all Poles thieves...no of course not , i have some great Polish friends that i can trust completly and despite the fact i lost a few items from my farm i feel my stuff is more safe here than it would be back in the UK.....

I think possibly petty theft is more common in Poland , but real crime is pretty rare , at least around the country areas where i live , and on the whole i fear crime a lot less than i did in the UK....

My experiences:

Direct:

The fence episode involved a poor person.

Dumping of garden waste and stealing (digging up) a tree - a rich engineer neighbour.

Indirect:
Parents-in-law - pensioners with a small farm, their peasant neighbours stole chickens and fruit ... and anything that wasn't tied down.

The septic tank episode was a trick performed by a well-off retired army colonel - on my brother-in-law.

So that's pretty much a cross-section of Polish society.

Pretty much standard procedure on Main Street, U.S.A. these days as well. Don't know what that's supposed to do with anything.

While I agree that this is a clumsy thread, the other ones are funny and not so bad. You should never go and point out previous topics from sb else as I will come back to you, right in your face :)

I remember that sb once started a thread about mushrooms, for example :)

I am sure that seeing all those nice Slavs soothes you very much after some scumbag has stolen your wallet with 500 Euro in it and your credit card :)

Congratulation you have been awarded Golden Cone yearly prize for the most stupid thread topic on PF.

This means that Cheery finally takes over this award from Iron, wh0 has held it for the last 5 years. Other members were wondering when it would be that sb finally would take over this award from Iron.
