you pee and crap in the lakes and forests

My Chihuahua's guilty to all of the above. But... she's not Polish.

Yes I have seen " floaters ".... DISGUSTING, I must say.

This is the sure sign Polish cuisine became Americanized. Too much fat make sh.it float. Good Polish sh.it sinks and it is thus superior to American sh.it.

Are you sure this were Polish pieces of crap? (I don't mean to doubt your expertise in the subject requiring a lot of intimate experience)

you insist that your Polish teacher knows better than a qualified native speaker.

One of my colleagues told me about a student who had gone to the UK and must have really REALLY annoyed someone (he was by all accounts annoying in general) because they told him that housework was 'blow job' and he would not accept that "I am going home to do my blow job" was wrong. He was enough of an irritation that she didn't even argue much when he told her that "You are wrong, I was told by someone ENGLISH not POLISH". So it cuts both ways :)

- When you like someone cos they complain
- When you can navigate a three inch wide gap in the snow to walk double file without crashing but in a wide open street you have zero spacial awareness

- When you can look at someone on a bus without it becoming a cause for paranoia

Hang on, I will taste one next time and get back to you.

That breed is renowned for licking pussies too, is that true ?

you look like Kenny from South Park in his parka :)

you wear tight jeans that hug your butt (esp women)

you walk through a door being held open for you without saying anything

you think Seksmisja is at the cutting edge of humour

you think Agnieszka Chylińska is the only celeb in the world

your opinion of your country vastly differs from that of foreigners

you know you have top-class meat (wędliny). This is true!

you automatically believe that Polish women are no1 for looks without accepting that beauty is in the eye of the beholder

you go abroad and say good things about Poland from afar, having left because you didn't really like it (or was it for money??)

you romanticise things well beyond conventional levels.

you think it's more important to close the shop/school/office door behind you than hold it open for the person who is only two steps behind.

you will waste a whole day to avoid spending 5zl

you will ask for outrageously enormous favours without ever expecting any payback

you like Ptasie Mleczko (yuck)

you think Polish food is the best in the world

you have a good sense of humour as long as the joke is not about you or your country

you buy children birthday and christmas presents from a supermarket

you have to live with your parents and grandparents but you pretend you like it

You're Polish if:

a) You have the nerve to walk straight to the front of a long queue in a post office.

b) The thought of queueing at an airport (or anywhere else, for that matter)horrifies you.

c) You can take just one of those nasty little paper napkin things out of the holder in a restaurant without pulling all the others out.

d) You expect every restaurant of foreign cuisine to serve chopped salads.

e) You change from a mild-mannered person who loves the world into a psychopathic, anti-social suicide perchant when you get into an Audi.

f) You actually moan when you don't get -50c and 20 metres of snow at Christmas.

i don't have much contact with English, especially spoken English. but none of my English teachers(all were Polish) ever taught me the correct pronounciation of words .

I know what you mean. One of my students recently told me I was teaching them bad pronunciation because I said that furry little animal which chases mice is called a "cat" (pronounced 'k-a-t'. She told me, "I have a friend who speaks very well English and she says it is 'k-e-t'!" When I told my wife she said that was what a lot of them had been taught, way back when.

- you have difficulties to understand why you need to park the car on a parking space

To be precise on ONLY ONE parking space.

No, the problem is why to park in a parking space. The average Polish driver considers any space to be a suitable place to leave his car.

walk straight to the front of a long queue

happens all the time

any space to be a suitable place to leave his car

the airplane hangar would be most suitable
besides that i find old polish grannies are horrible people pushing in everywhere they can

I appreciate what yopu mean, like in an underground carpark, with limited spaces and all the SUVs park on the pedestrian path.

My thought was, I was looking for a place, I saw 6 empty places but couldn't park in any of them because there were 3 Polish drivers parked there.

... you pee and crap in the lakes and forests and think this is acceptable behavior.

Leave a mountain of toilet paper and toilet 'products' in the sand-dunes. I wa at a couple of coastal resorts and couldn't believe the mess the place was. A great advert for tourists.

Some lakes are closed to bathers in the summer due to contamination.

I think that's more to do with algae.

Talk about how warmia-mazury are the "green Lungs of Europe" and then dump all the bin bags in the forest.

Good Polish sh.it sinks and it is thus superior to American sh.it.

So, are you saying Americans act like their sh1t don't sink?

you think Agnieszka Chylińska is the only celeb in the world

Now come on Seanus, that's ridiculous. Everyone knows there's only one celebrity and that's Kasia Cichopek.

you think Polish food is the best in the world

You think chicken kotlets and potatoes are a uniquely Polish food

you overly think in your own language when using English (not many PF users, though)

you believe coleslaw (soleslav) is a Polish creation (yes, it has cabbage but....)

you throw Maluchs round a corner at their limit (I'm glad the top speed is low)

you put a slice of lemon in your tea

you cannot define what a Catholic is and how it's different from a Protestant

you squander your education by accepting unsuitable jobs

you are proud and value honour

-you eat every meal with a slice of rye bread in one hand.
-your kitchen is where all social gatherings take place
-you offer everyone a drink whenever they come into the kitchen, usually going through "herbata? Kawa? wodka? piwo?..."etc etc etc

These are my observations anyway :)

this sounds like some student place, well at least some young people living somewhere together, not so common...
this is what i would imagine

some student place

5 Feb 2010 #79
yeah, haha.
the rye bread thing confuses me, I like it and all, but not with EVERYTHING. including blackcurrant jam, which one of them had for breakfast the other day. yuck.

Yes the offerings include vodka, beer, coffe, tea, milk...anything.
And if you say no, or just drink water, they all look at you like you're mad! ;)
