What do you mean partly?Ignorance is not an excuse
If he was Polish he would have been ignorant in this situation, the fact he is a foreigner he was too trusting.
.He should have asked for a WRITTEN confirmation and he did not.
Well he knows that now, as I previously mentioned he was too trusting.
I highly doubt he is saying the truth because as hard as I am trying to
Thats because you are Polish and Polish people never believe anyone is telling the truth.
I can not imagine a landlord or building administration giving up czynsz because he lives there only a week or whatever a year
I would agree here.
Must have been misunderstanding and this why one should always ask for something "on paper".
Whenever a Pole tells me its a miss understanding I know he/she is trying to shaft me. THere is no such thing as miss understanding in Poland, it is either fcuk someone or be fcuked, thats the mental of Poles unfortunately.
grubas, the one point you did not raise is that the poor landlord is only Polish and Marko should pay him the money because he is from a rich western country. Give me a break, you know the rules in Poland 'grubas' just like I do. Who is kidding who.
Here is my spin, the old man made an agreement with Marko, as soon as the son becomes the administrator he notices that there is a bit of red ink in the books, now he wants to flex his polish muscles at the foreigner so he calculates the outstanding to the grosze and smiles all the way to the Post office. This is a Father and son issue not Marko's.
