In what way were they stuck up, dnz?
I get the impression from people i've met here in Poznan that they judge people on what qualifications they have, what car they drive, how big their house is etc and that annoys me somewhat It also seems to be the case with a lot of polish people that if they have a little bit of cash they have to flaunt it and then they are exempt from displaying any form of courtesy to other people.
Regarding manners i've noticed when waiting to pay for something in the supermarket even if you only have one thing its common for some fake tanned bint to push in front with a weeks worth of shopping and make you wait.
Also just the other week our neighbour parked his car behind ours blocking it in on the drive without asking (if they had asked there wouldn't have been a problem) when i tried to move to go to the shop they came out and started swearing at me. its our ******* space we pay to rent it and they have one of there own.
Driving, well don't get me started....
Getting off a tram people always push to get on before you have got off.
Also when going to a shop the girl working there always looks like someone has murdered her sainted mother well judging by her face you would assume this. This occurs in every shop and they always make customers feel like they are inconveniencing the people working there by actually buying things (when will they learn that the customers pay their ******* wages and if they don't like the job find another)
Obviously i've met some great people whilst i've been here but there does seem to be an awful lot of miserable, rude and generally stuck up people.
