Poles can't accept criticism. (In places like Sweden & Britain - "mature countries" - people accept criticism and think what they can improve about themselves or the state.
soooo many times i noticed that brits push a blame on someone else(usually someone weak and defenceless).why?because they don't want to admit that they've done something wrong>
Mature countries-what does it mean?the countries which have gone through everything like murders,corruption,racism ect and not have a lot of experience? you shouldn't criticise us on this matter as you are not any better
OK, I'll just rephrase my initial question slightly.
It's not just the lack of smiling in Poland, it's the whole Polish psyche that's F+cked up.
i would say exactly the same about quite a few brits i saw and belive me a lot of you folks only smile when drunk(usually from thursday to tuesday).
Very few people in Poland seem to be happy with their lives.
so you are.most of the brits i know are unhappy about their lives.
One symptom is that they're all escaping to GB and Ireland - 1 million and still counting. (Last person out please switch off the lights!) And don't tell me it's just for the money.... A lot of emigrants see no perspectives for themselves in Polska. They see the country as a dead end
you are wrong again.this is the minority of people who think that way.most of us want to come back to poland after a few years.
btw i bet that a few million brits emigrated(a few millions and still counting)to australia,spain,canada ect because they see no perspectives in england
To my mind you can still be poor but happy. Poles are both poor and unhappy.
Where is all the 'joie de vivre' in this country?
Surely it's not just a question of cold climate. The Swedes have a far worse climate, as do the Finns, but in general they're really sociable and open and happy.
i don,t know who you hang around with but a lot of the brits are also poor and unhappy.a lot of them can't even smile cos of the state of their teeth.
i just want to tell you that you see what you want to see.that's all.
