Often the writing style gives him away.

Yes, and there's one huge 'tell' in his latest character. I spotted a mile away as soon as he started boasting about America.

It's not America, what with the millions of drug addicts that use them to shoot up

You're obviously just trolling again about America, a place where you never have been too and are extremely jealous over.

Most public restrooms Ive been into has free toilet paper, doors, working plumbing and are usually well maintained.

Which ones are you talking about, the ones you googled?

Perhaps, someday disregarding your low budget, we might let you come see for yourself lol

I found this forum a day before I signed up, so FO.

Jon and Delphia are liberal foreign expats (UK) with an axe to grind against America, they are bullies. Take notice DDs` post count over 16K! He lives on this forum day and night.

Jealous of what, the obscene property taxes and drug abuser infested bathrooms? I don't think so.

Oh delph the guy pays more property tax then you make in a year.
You are jealous, face it.
Being here day and night tormenting people into pissing contests makes one wonders how you can support your family.
Your wife has to make more money then you to make ends meet.
And please don't tell us that she is a stay at home Mom.

Our property taxes arent high to us because we make much more money than you could ever make in your wildest dreams!

I just invited you to talk about how dysfunctional the US is in my Post #58 and that's the crap I get in return.

To refresh your memory, this is what I wrote there:

Just curious to know how and why you came up with that "dysfunction". I am not only not offended, which is a default reaction to everything lately, but I agree with you. I am sincerely interested in you POV on that matter. I could talk about how dysfunctional the US is for a day and half and still not be done.

Are there any words in the above that you didn't come across yet. No shame in admitting it because you are among friend and we will not tell on you.

BTW, are you OK?

Back to the the second reason reason why I left Poland after only three days: the emergency health care for foreign tourists. The answers I got talking to a random hospital in Warsaw, politely and in Polish, are the main reason why I will never go back.

So, all of you trolls, stay with me for the next 30 seconds. I just came back from a typical American hospital. The one I chose to get the info I needed to compare is NCH in Arlington Heights. I spoke to someone in the Administration and was told without any equivocation the following:

1. We never refuse to treat anyone in our ER. Ever.
2. We will write off the expenses by moving them to the charitable file if the patient never comes back after discharge to give us more information.

3. If he does come back and has travel health insurance, we immediately verify it on the spot.
4. We never expect any payment before treatment. Only after the insurance paid what it is supposed. If they don't, we eat it.

I do admit that as I was listening to that lady I got a lump in my throat and that my eyes got a little wet because, again, as the song goes, nothing compares to you, the USA. Nothing.

Is the US perfect? Hell, no. But if you want to get sick, that is where you want to do it. Just ask our friends in Canada and the assorted creeps ruling Africa and other hellholes.

Poland doesn't live up to your standards, szkoda, people here will try to survive (and hope you never darken an airport lobby here again).

Rich,

I'll concur as far as the "pride" bit regarding the English skills of run-of-the-mill yuppified Poles.
While I haven't been back to Poland in nearly twenty years, I'd imagine things have indeed changed some
in the latter respect, albeit ever so slowly:-)

The Poles I encountered were mostly younger people, my age at the time, and in general were surprised when I told them
in Polish that I wasn't even Polish-American. They didn't seem to think that their speaking English with me was
really practicing, other than that, we talked a blue streak with one another, in either language!

My wife and I hope to visit again one day.

English is so common in Poland among the 30 and under that I would default to English and I was never disappointed. In all honesty, I don't even remember when I spoke Polish and when I did in English. Berlin was a different matter. I was like a baby lost in the jungle, exept for the hotels.

Strange that you still haven't provided us with any evidence that you can read and comprehend English.

I'm very skeptical about that.... to the extent that it's true it's a sign you're being treated as an outsider.

I already said that this would never happen.

What would it take for you to stay away from this forum too?

Why don't you help Rich improve his English? You could practice Polish with him. It's perfect but you might learn some technical vocabulary from Polibuda.

@mafketis
How do you even survive in Poland, proszÄ™ Pana?

Is it so great in USA?....it says about life-threatening illness or injury....You just did not feel very well in Poland....and had enough energy to argue about payment....it could be indigestion or hangover not life threatening illness.

According to the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA), any person who goes to an emergency room must be stabilized and treated for life-threatening illness or injury, regardless of their ability to pay. Hospitals are required to provide "emergency medical treatment" which is lifesaving treatment and/or stabilization, and provide treatment for women in "active labor" (water has broken).

@kaprys,

Rich is a native English speaker! It's probably Polish with which he needs assistance, no?

@RichMazur,

I got the jokeLOL
Seriously, my point was that while visiting Poland, albeit all too briefly, I didn't find the average Pole spoke much better English than I spoke Polish.

As I said, we got along famously. They would frequently re-cast my Polish into more idiomatic, natural usage, and I would do the same for their English.

Fair exchange, I'd say. Unlike the Germans, the Poles honestly seemed grateful. I know I sure was!

Reading comprehension problems again. I never said I wanted to be treated in a Warsaw hospital for my running nose or bronchities which was diagnosed later after my return to the US. The fact that a nearby clinic (not the hospital) would not take my credit cards which I used without any problems the same day, pissed me off big time. Using whatever cash I had was not an option because even if the initial exam is only 120zl, the subsequent tests like x-rays would deplete my cash to zero really fast.

The reason I walked into that hospital in Warsaw was to ask a hypothetical question to find out how I would be treated in the event of some major crap like being hit by a car. Without any hesitation they told me they would need cash up front. My assurances that I have actually two policies covering such things in Poland was of no interest to them. It was a straight NO. This is why I decided to never come back. Returning home the next day was mainly because of my actual condition at that time. I don't drink so let's not go there.

You did a lot of walking into random places uninvited, didn't you? You walked into a school uninvited, you walked into a hospital despite having nothing wrong with you, anything else you did uninvited?
10iwonka10 - | 218

@Rich Mazur

Hospitals always ask for cash up-front? So what if someone is hit by car and is unconscious? Do emergency services check his pockets if he has enough cash before trying to save him?

I don't think so. It is the same like in USA.

They ask up front for some tests, doctor examinations ....just like any private services do.

No. No he didn't. There is no Rich Mazur who left Poland in 1966 and then came back to harangue emergency room workers or invade elementary schools.

It's a troll, not sure which one (since I don't keep track) but he displays almost no knowledge or Polish language and culture. Agreeing or arguing with him is about as productive as putting mud in a frying pan for breakfast.
