What strange/unnerving/funny things do your Polish wives do?

Anyone every get this from their wife or girlfriend they live with?

Every once in a while [couple of times a year, possibly once a year if you are lucky] they feel this need to just completely alter the layout of the room. TV somewhere else, sofa facing this way, table over there, lamp on the other side of the room etc. If you ask why, they say the the room needs to be refreshed, you cannot just have it look the same all the time.

Taking home little packets of free condiments from restaurants.

my gf wanted to do that with the living room but when I told her to stay away from that she did this with the bedroom which I dont mind. btw she's not Polish but women are more or less the same everywhere.

Or defending those tracing paper style napkins as a good and effective way to wipe ones mouth / fingers after eating something sloppy at a restaurant.

I don’t really mind rearranging the room, even if I don’t like the new layout. It’s kind of hard to miss the new location of 60” TV or bed but what gets under my skin is the kitchen, every three months like clockwork the cupboards are rearranged. To find a spoon, beer opener or coffee cup can be a real challenging to put it mildly. By the time you get used to the new location it’s rearranged again! I think they do it out of spite.

Didn't you play hide and seek as a kid? Where's your sense of fun?
Most of my sentences at home begin with the words, "Where's the...?"
As others have said, it's not about Polish women in particular. Hey, if women were as easy to read as men, we wouldn't find them so fascinating, would we?

Having said that, when I find the cold beer I was looking forward to drunk but not replaced...oj.

Provided there's still one left as the shelf space allocation in the fridge for simple pleasures in life is also at short supply. Can't live without them but living with them presents its own set of challenges.

Every once in a while.

Not my wife`s.

Taking home little packets of free condiments from restaurants.

Nope.

btw she's not Polish but women are more or less the same everywhere.

Yes!:):):):)

Do your Polish wives ever undergo a transformation?

No, I don`t mean any female werewolf, snake or wild cat act from horror movies.

Wife from Poland

I mean character transformation.

Normally my wife is a delicate, kind-hearted, unassuming person who needs my physical and emotional support in daily matters. But she turns into a real demon when her female mates visit us. Then she can be very pushy and she starts commanding me! She even makes fun of me in front of her mates! :):):) Unbelievable! She behaves like a master towards a servant.

I have always considered it very funny and never complained because the moment her mates are gone, she again becomes my darling sweetheart.

I tried to understand her motives and developed a theory. She fears that her mates might try to rob her of her husband that is why she sort of scares them off by belittling my person so that I look less attractive than I am.

What about your wives and their transformations?

Oh man, nothing gets her more intolerable than when I ask her if she missed any details...

You should still work on her.

I'd forgotten about this thread. Thanks for the reminder!
I think this might be true of all women but my wife is the back seat driver of my life. Like any little mistake no matter how inconsequential must be commented on and logged.

Just today she started shouting and carrying on like it was the end of the god damned world because I put a pair of dirty running shoes in a backpack of hers, which I had claimed many years ago.... I told her that's not how adults are supposed to communicate with each other.

Oh my God. I truly pity you. You are too kind. If my woman did sth like that, my revenge would be really nasty. E.g., ban on sex for a week!

I told her that's not how adults are supposed to communicate with each other.

Good but will she listen? Women are so stubborn.

I'd be abstaining every week if I did that. I think she is, like a lot of women are, just afraid that if she doesn't find something to argue or complain about then she'll forget this important life skill: )

She listened today. But is she stubborn enough to choose to forget?

Sorry to hear that.

:):):) I knew a few Polish women like that, One of them, my mother. :):):) When stopped by the road police for an obvious offence, she argued so long that they let us go. :):):)

A little reminder:

Dear guys (I mean males now),
Did you ever come across articles suggesting your offspring`s intelligence is inherited from mothers only? It is not exactly true. So, don`t lose hope - you still have a chance to pass down your mental powers onto your kids.

forbes.com/sites/emilywillingham/2016/09/16/no-research-has-not-established-that-you-inherited-your-intelligence-from-your-mother/#5005daa96502

Did you know that intelligence is inherited from mothers?
Yet the claims in those headlines--and the articles that follow--are just rubbish, and pretty obviously so. Which just goes to show that no matter how smart we are or where we got those smarts, confirmation bias will be what makes us click...and share.

A joke on the Polish wife:

Does fairness exist in the (Polish) marriage?
Yes, it does: one time she is right, another time he is not right.
(Raz ona ma rację, raz on nie ma racji.)

It reminds me of that old joke about bosses.

Two main rules at your workplace:
1. Your boss is always right.
2. When he/she isn`t, go back to point no 1.

Guys, let`s talk about our Polish wives` sense of humour.

Rich, can I use your words from another thread?

God has given the sense of humor almost exclusively to men.

Hmm, that almost certainly refers to my wife who can be so sardonic about my lifestyle and strange things I do on the daily basis that I can`t help but laugh out loud when I hear her comments.

Or whenever I ask silly questions, she answers in the same style, even using rhymes:

Seeing a dozen of freshly fried meat patties on a plate, I ask: A te sznycle to dla kogo?
Jej odpowiedź: Dla Misia Gogo

Who are those schnitzels for? I ask.
For Gogo Bear - she answers.
