You're Polish if you think the English word "nervous" means "angry"

Nervous means angry or irritated, that's a good one.

HOLY SH*T Seanus!!! What is with that irritating laugh?
It's like the same group of idiots have been doing this for more than 10 f*cking years now- I thought it was just me. I am relieved in a way.

You are Polish if:
- you take your blood pressure at home;
- you blame the air pressure for the way you feel;
- you are genetically unable to spend less than 15 minutes at the apteka counter if you are over the age of 60;
- you consider the acceptable amount of space between you and the person in front of you in a queue to be the width of a credit card.

An Englishman says "I'm tired and thirsty, I must have beer", a Frenchman says "I'm tired and thirsty, I must have wine", a Pole says "I'm tired and thirsty, I must have diabetes".

It's certain red-blooded guys when they drink. Really like a pack of hyenas, uncanny!

LOL, Harry. However, the air pressure does affect quite a few here. My mother-in-law, for example.

Oh, those grannies in chemists. Hypochondriacs! They spontaneously discover new ailments, totally undiagnosed, and are the pride of the pharmaceutical companies.

Pure genius!

If....you walk past everyone on the escalators at various airports, just to get ahead.

you get frustrated if the person in front of you is leaving 'too much' space for the person in front of them (also at airports)

you pretend to be looking at sth more closely in a shop and then suddenly take up the offer of service without a second thought

you chew gum at the rate of knots to look like a total smartass

you giggle like a hyena after amusing yourself with the word 'kur*a'

you mutter 'dzień dobry' under your breath when entering a shop and directing it at nobody in particular

you make slow motion appear like reality :)

you needlessly fuss in shops, rather than take it easy and chill

You thank people when leaving elevators.

you enjoy a good BBQ in the garden :) I like this aspect. Communal and open! Better this than try and share through any darned political system.

When you are in church you speak the parts of the mass with a half voice at best (many seems to only lipsync ;)

if.....you find a way to incorporate pickles/gherkins into all meals

you start with a large spiel when asked 'how are you?'

you think Poles are as homogeneous as the Borg ;)

So true. When I make a tuna sandwich, it's more like a pickle with tuna sandwich :)

When an english word ends in "ing" you pronounce it "ink".eg. how are you do-ink.

LMAO, however Germans also do this sometimes. I used to work with a German who used to called one of the coworkers Doug as Duk.

-You will not admit that Jews have greatly contributed to the world-You will not admit that Poland's Jewish minority has contributed more in certain scientific fields than the Polish Christian majority-You will not admit that some Poles have done very bad things to Jews, Ukrainians and others

You might want to check with other web sites that have threads on YOU'RE A JEW IF...

To sum it up, these are the best ones and probably closest to the truth...

You're Polish if...

- you think any breeze or draft will be the death of you
- you keep your Christmas tree up till February
- if you say Polish like you say polish
- think all American desserts are too sweet
- if you can't name a country or city without saying "the" in front of it
- you think Beer is a soft drink
- if you think the English word "nervous" means "angry"
- if you blame the air pressure for the way you feel
- if you mutter 'dzień dobry' under your breath when entering a shop and directing it at nobody in particular

Yeah, quite accurate for the most part, Pierdolski :)

I wonder if they'd say Netherlands instead of The Netherlands or Hague instead of The Hague ;) ;)

if....you don't have an ailment of some sort, you have to create one (largely the women)

Well, you wouldn't though, would you? You have a completely different perception than others.

You are Polish if...

You drive past an Etap Hotel and you think it says Ełap Hotel :)

You walk past a butcher's and you see "Pork Pies" in the window, and you think "WTF is a pork dog?? " :)
