Last couple of weeks I've been able to clean on Friday night after having couple of drinks. I don't drink all week, and if I manage to "drink responsibly" on Friday, then...I get very energetic. So after the beasts are asleep, I put the wireless headset on, and go crazy wiping the hole house down, sometimes re-arranging the furniture, cliping hedges in the moonlight... great fun! I sweat out the alcohol, and wake up next .. afternoon feeling pretty good, and to the clean house! Highly recommended.

Lol

I don't have any beasts to send to bed, but I may give the rest of your ideas a good try.

When your Grand Father tells you to put a lot of horse radish on your ham sandwich , because it puts hair on your chest. It dont matter if you are a girl

you think no food can possibly be better than Polish food (foods are just 'different' anyway, this better crap really gets up my nose)

you ask 'would you like some pizza with your ketchup?' or 'would you like some bigos with your salt?'.

you create a heavy atmosphere unnecessarily, unless you are drinking.

you sometimes don't answer when you are asked sth (in class)

you set aside a whole day for administrative business, anticipating a lengthy locking of horns.

you are shocked when you get nothing after asking for 'all exclusive' rather than 'all inclusive', LOL. That'll teach you for thinking you deserve anything exclusive.

you really can't think much beyond stereotypes which can sour relations

OK, all of the above have some grains of truth in them but they are designed to be slightly provocative and tease out discussion. Please consider all of the above as marked with winks ;) ;) ;)

I think he means if you pay the lowest price for something you expect to get the extras included when they've not been paid for. But doubtless he will be along in a minute to correct me if I'm wrong. ;)

Oh, I get it, thanks. It's like making sure nobody's getting a better deal? LOL I guess that's Polish, but not exclusively.

Gra słów. Exclusive means that it is of a very high quality. However, exclusive is from the verb to exclude which means to leave out. Some Poles want 'all exclusive' but it means sth different in travel. Rather than everything being luxury and of very high quality, it means that everything is kept out of the price.

You're Polish if you contact a translator or proof-reader with 20 volumes of important documents which need doing and say you need it 'tomorrow'.

you talk about money no end, to the point of extreme irritation

you forever talk about 'better', rather than just 'different'

You're a Polish woman if you went to the UK, use kilograms of makeup everyday and dye your hair in most unnaturally looking colors, wear too short t-shirts so everyone can see the ring in your navel, you forgot you had some boyfriend in Poland and your new boyfriend is an oddly brown shorter than you British whose name is Mahmood or anyhow similar and even though you've known him for a couple of weeks you're pregnant with him already, you don't even realize everyone around including your habibi considers you as a piece of crap because you're a Polish and everyone in Poland thinks Polish women are the most beautiful so you claimed that as a fact.

you are polish if you take something from a shop without paying

you are polish if your mother left you in the hospital and didnt come back!!!!

you are polish if you eat the Queen's swans .

you are polish if you went to work in the uk , you left your wife and kids behind
and you dont want to go back

what's actually your problem alfonso ? Got fired from job ?

you get agitated at airports

you get impatient when walking down the aisle of a plane, not thinking that other people are putting their luggage into the overhead compartments

you believe all announcements should be in Polish, even on international flights

you think your news is the only news that matters in the world

you are stubborn beyond defending your corner

you cannot accept criticism and get defensive quickly.

Spot On

you think foreigners' criticism is without foundation

Spot On[

you, once again, feel the need to deflect attention from any faults here ;) ;)

Spot OnCome to think of it most of all you have posted is Spot On, Your not ****ing my misses by any chance? :)

Nah, I'm just a Scottish man who admires a select few people here as good friends. There truly are gems but some of the traits stick out like a sore thumb.

Unless your missus is my missus, no ;) ;) ;)

Actually, I find the opposite. Usually nobody wants to talk about money until after the job is done and then seems surprised that you want some. Surely that bottle of bomba was enough....

- If your in your late 30s, sitting in an Audi up someones ass, with a phone stuck to your head

- If your booking you summer Holiday to Egypt, in a Travel Agent that,s got nice big cardboard cutouts of sunny beach,s (takes me back to the 1980s:)))

- If your a market trader who will not give discount even though your buying multiple items from him (why don,t poles haggle?)

you wear khaki trousers when there is no war going on ;) ;)

you have all this info from education but few outlets willing to pay you for it

you keep a constant supply of pickles/gherkins in your fridge

you believe that no bread can beat Polish bread, even though the Baltic states and Finland produce top notch stuff

you love arguing at family get-togethers

you love overusing certain verbs like jechać and delight in using all the forms

you fuss over things like open doors, windows and trivial things, just to mask boredom

you claim to be Catholic but don't go to church.
