wildrover 98 | 4,451 2 Sep 2010 #1When i was in the UK , i could be seen quite clearly it seems , people would wait patiently behind me while i stood in line in a shop , and nobody walked in front of me in order to get served first...the down side , was that once i got on my motorcycle , both me and my bike could not be seen by other road users untill i had got within inches of crashing into them....In Poland , it seems to be the other way round , despite the terrible accident figures on Polish roads , i have hardly ever had anyone try to wipe me and my motorcycle off the face of the earth , but walk in a shop or post office , and i become invisible...!!!I have just been up to the 24 hour garage to get a snack . parked my car , went inside and picked out some crisps and chocolate , put them on the counter , and got my dosh out , it all seemed to be going pretty well , untill some guy that had just got some petrol , came in to pay , and get a load of beer too... He did not need to push in front of me , as the guy behind the counter just served him as though he hadn,t seen me stood directly in front of him for a good 20 seconds before the other guy had even entered the shop....Just to rub it in a bit . he then turned to deal with another guy that walked in after the beer buyer.... I think he might have begun to notice me when the crisps and chocolate went flying over his head and landed on the floor behind him , but it was too late then , i was on my way out of the door....I have got used to people walking in front of me as i wait in a post office que , and have them stick their heads in front of mine if i don,t stand right up to the counter when i am being served , but this last event has really got on my tits....Do the Poles do this to each other all the time , or is it that they can tell i am not Polish and therefore don,t count as a person...????
