Poland - the least liked German neighbour.

Another provocative article. If these stats are true then let it be. It shows the evil and intolerant nature of the Kraut. It also shows the lack of logic and intelligence. What the h'ell have Poles done to the Krauts? Anyways, this nation has to die out and it will - before Poland. I hate the German. A good German is a dead one :)

Yeah...quite the good and tolerant one, aren't you...

I get worked up over this kind of stuff. But a German shouldn't be lecturing a Pole on tolerance.

I think it just depends what kind of Pole and German come together. A certain elitist kind from both sides could only lead to a major tussle with neither backing down.

I guess when you commit ethnic cleansing against them, a nation tends not to like you.

Which German does this?
The poll was about sympathies...
And you right now are doing everything to make me dislike Poles, if it's that what you want...congrats! No reason to complain afterwards if they keep disliking you...

Why the need for generalisations? I've met bad Germans and good Germans. One called Henrika was a pain as she felt I wasn't smart enough to be doing an LLM like she was. This despite gaining a prestigious scholarship. Such arrogance can be found amongst Germans quite easily.

Then again, I found a couple of Berliners really nice and friendly. A guy called Florian from Hamburg too.

It was funny to hear him and Judit speak. She was from Bavaria and they didn't understand each other sometimes. Both very likable people.

You're generalizing... :)

Hehehe, good try! Nah, that's where the truth came in to my post, the Other :) :) It cannot really be denied that it's quite easy to find.

I'm sure you can find easily stupid Poles everywhere too...not to mention stingy Scots...

Again, no denial from me, BB :) :) Frugal and thrifty would have been better, but your description fits Aberdonians :)

"Frugal and thrifty" would be positive..."stingy" is negative.
You could also say "self assured" or "self confident" say to "arrogance".

But that isn't what stereotypes are about...

Exactly! Some are this and some are that, end of story :) :)

I might be visiting Dresden in December. Either there or Salzburg in Austria. I look forward to hearing a different language again.

He hasn't. Rychlik is clearly a chauvinist.

Is it because those Poles haven't returned those cars to Germany? ;) Or was it that too many Germans got disillusioned through having to haggle to get their motor back when in Poland? ;) ;)

It's all the Poles fault, surely...
We Germans just like everybody naturally, so!

Try telling a Berliner (not a donut) called Deitler that. He said even Polish bureaucracy is friendlier. If that's the case, I never want to visit German offices. He was a staunch critic of his own country and loves his business here in Szczecin (Stettin).

See how hard a German tries to be polite and nice???

That's impossible, he must have been drunk!

Ahh yez they do, they do

Take an example of your new foreign minister, I got really surprised by his first foreign visit in the office.

If this is true, then German can go screw itself. But these statistics can easily be smudged. As someone who has obvious Polish ethnicity I have many German friends and I speak the language and as I said they know my ethnicity. Truth is however, all of my German friends are new age/young. So I really don't know...

Well look at the bright side.

Torq there is more to this Polish article.

Although the German media may not be perfect in portraying Poles and there has been some residual negativity passed down from some older Germans to younger Germans, the articles says that the Germans with the most negative attitude towards Poles are the ones FURTHEST away from Poland with no contact with Poles.

It also says, Germans near the border of Poland and who know Poles have a better impression of Poles then Germans who don't know Poles.

I suppose the opposite is also true.

Yea well i 'must' have met those who didn't know Poles since they didn't even know me and didn't like me when they found out i was Polish. This is all bs, look at the statistic the younger ones who are supposed to be more open and tolerant are worse than the older generation. This week an Italian man came to my job, we chated about Europe for a while, he told me his dislike for Germans, so i guess Germans aren't exactly loved by everyone either.

Germany is the most popular country! :)

And the Italians just love us! :)
(77% positive, you must have found one of the 8% negative - or he just wanted to be polite to you)

Only France (84% and South Korea 82% love us more)
Closely followed by Spain 74%, Portugal 72 % and Brazil 70%....;)
