I started this thread to learn about rural Poland so it is understandable how my statements may seem ridiculous to a Brit as yourself, Pam, who has visited Poland.
Your effort to shame me because I want to learn about rural Poland certainly shows your inferiority complex towards Americans that want to learn as much as they can about their family ancestry in Poland.
Do you have any family ancestry in Poland ?
do you seriously think that all hikers on the Appalachian Trail for example, are humble Americans
How creative of you in your efforts to belittle me as never did I mention 'hikers', I was referring to the small farms and village people.
And YES, here in America the people who live away from the cities and in rural areas are much more humble down to earth people in general.
See, you just learned something and I found no need to shame your ignorance in the process.
Not that you will be hiking it as I've lost count of how many times you've said you are coming to Poland.
I am impressed to think you you have kept count of my private life that needs no explaining to YOU.
You seem infatuated with me as I must remind you of one of your brothers that use to knock you around when you needed it.
Clearly your knowledge of Polish people is about as good as your knowledge of maths.
My math is excellent for a guy my age, probably much better then yours.
Yes Pam, your knowledge of Poland is better then mine since you have visited Poland and I haven't.
I could belittle you just as bad if we were discussing a country that I have visited that you have not, say like Jamaica.
Wanna give it a try ?
Thank you for your condescending input in your failed efforts of my monthly brow beating by you.
No wonder you never meant any humble people while hiking in Poland with that deep frown line in your forehead as attitude is everything.
Try smiling next time while losing your British superiority complex and just watch what a difference it makes in meeting humble people......such as myself.
Attitude is everything Pam, ATTIDUDE ! ;-)
