Although in our case your reference is useless, given that the word 'expat' didn't appear until 1962.
Hahahahahahaha! What a stupid claim! "Expatriate" is from the Latin "expatriatus
" it means quite simply "out of ones fatherland" and it has existed for centuries. If you want to claim that its abbreviation, "expat", is a new word from 1962 then you are, once again, the laughing stock of this forum! Hahahahahahahahahaha!
I do hope that you aren't trying to insult any foreigners in Poland with your reference to 'lost generation'; from memory most of the "Lost Generation" were living off their parents, which is not a statement which can be made about any of the foreigners in Poland who post here.
Hahahahahahaha! Referencing the Lost Generation was the giving of an example of expatriatism, if you believe that this was somehow a slur directed at you, and your gang, then you truly are paranoid. Harry your claim to know the personal financial situations of all the foreigners in Poland, who post here, is both hilarious and indicative of a delusional mind state. The fact is that you do not know the personal information of all the expatriates on this forum and your claiming otherwise is very stupid and indicative of the megalomaniacal gangster mindset that your clique plagues this forum with in your posts.
Des Essientes: These two answers above, to the OP's query, are the most correct. No they are not, but thanks for your input anyway, always nice to hear people who have never been an expat or lived outside their home country telling other people that they are or are not expats.
Harry, you need to stop making claims about posters' personal lives. You do not know whether or not I have ever been an expatriate or lived outside of my home country. Your claiming otherwise shows the forum, yet again, that you are delusional and very rude. Stop making claims about other posters' personal lives and stick to the topics of the threads here. PF has had enough of your idiotic gangsterism.
