My (short) Poland experiences - bad luck?

Hmm....I've never seen any man limit the drinking of a woman here. Men are generally more bellicose and tend to help themselves when drunk and this is the same anywhere. Women can discreetly pour themselves sth and nothing is said. I'm not saying you are wrong, I'm just saying that I haven't seen that. Don't you know that getting a woman drunk has benefits? ;) ;)

old fashioned manners/chivalry

it calls good manners man. Get lost with your understand in wrong way feminism! I'M A WOMAN AND WANT MEN TO BE CHIVALRY TO ME! Do you undrstand that??? Take your sick believes about what sexism is back to Ireland.

that spilled over into patronisation and machismo some of the time.

bollox. there is no machismo in polish culture.

E.g. my wife being repeatedly ignored when the glasses were being filled around the table - general deference to the male (i.e. me) for decision making and expecting me to answer for my wife.

thats weir and certainly not polish thing. Are you sure taht you understand everything well what happened there?

It is a strange one, I've never noticed that before. I would too scared to defy any woman in Poland of their drink!

Strange, in the south of Poland there are many like that. I used to call them K*rwa boys.

(£ódź Fabryczna railway station was to demolish and go undergound).

no kidding? i was just looking at that on googlemapsPL and it wasn't up to date then...

There was a plan to built a modern conference hall but the idea was given up because of its costs (that's why Camerimage has moved to another city)

still may happen, no?

It was few years ago when the govern of the city claimed that whithin 2 or 3 years the journey time from Lodz to Warsaw would last less than 30 min.
Corruption, political wars, street pathology

do you have any idea what kind of undertaking that is? if everything was in place, it would take at least that long to construct the line.. just buying up the land can take that many years... hell, it took 30 years or more to build the metro in W-WA.. my mom designed it when i was teeny-tiny.

Welcome to £ódź!

it's not that bad.

bollox. there is no machismo in polish culture.

lol. are you sure?

cart before the horse obviously.. you need rails before those trains can run.. they weren't going to put them on the old tracks, were they? hmm

Like it or not, they are part of the culture, Zeti. Just like neds and chavs are part of British culture. There are more than enough of them for them to constitute a part of the culture. Sad but true!

well, that will take a long time and a boat [ ;) ] load of Z£. but it would be nice, for sure and that would help Lodz grow.

first train would go in 2020. From Lodz to Wrocław within... an hour. Dream :)

eeeeeasy boy.

look at post #26.

Avalon wrote to me:

"What is wrong with that? I happen to believe its better here than the UK. I have a good life and I can earn money here if I want to. my kids can grow up safely and I have everything I want. 7 years now and I am not tired of Poland at all. As WB will tell you, you're in for a shock when you go back.

whereas I then followed up by asking, "go back to where?". the statement was directed at me so i responded accordingly. Avalon knows WB is from the UK and was probably assuming I was just the same, which I'm not.

kumasz?

and yes, FIM.

Chavs spawn chavs, it's one aspect of the culture. I can just imagine Zeti out with her ned/chav detectors and guns :)

You people sucks.
What (the hell) do you expect seeing Poland after two horror events like aircrash (when the most important poeple from the government died) and flood?

You become as deppressive as Polish reality or do you maybe want to challenge more optimistic people to change your attitude?!
If so, here you are: I love my country and I think it's great although people are sometimes or often too melancholic.
Gossiping is flourishing on PF, congrats, foreigners. So far, so good.

Have you heard the latest joke?
What do foreigners like to do in Poland?
- To gossip, to complain and to criticise.

you will never have time for something that isn't there. you misread, you swung, you missed. nothing more to say. moving on.

sure. right after I learn you english grammar and spelling.

i NEVER critique people for their english if they're a non-native, but you simply asked for it.

masz.

Sounding rather "deep South" :D

E.g. my wife being repeatedly ignored when the glasses were being filled around the table.

Fek that, Id have just taken the bottle! ;0)

I think it's a good thing that people can come here and attempt to improve and converse in another language that aint their's.

Maybe that bi*tch Z should improve her attitude!

For their English :) It was a small typo, m is right beside n. You did criticise/critique ;) (teach, not learn)

Anyway, back on track. They were observations, noreen, not gossip. Poles can come across as gloomy but that's just the way of many here. It makes finding the exceptions all the better :)

TEACH ppl TEACH!!!!!

Sorry, couldn't help it.

And nobody should have a go at someone's attempt at learning another language ;)

I think it's a good thing that people can come here and attempt to improve and converse in another language that aint their's.

(I seem to be far too chilled these days on the forum, I don't like that :/ ;) )

Edit; even I make typo's :P
