LodzLand. Try answering these questions without Google.
I fking hope those questions are not on the UK residency test, cos even i don't have a friggen clue on 75% and anyone who does needs a damn good slap.
As far as i can see, you are the one who failed.
Really don't like it when people accuse others of that, define failure....OK he's moaning a bit and made some bad decisions but 'failure'...please.. Put yourself in his shoes.
I'd imagine that more than a few employers will just assume that the OP served a stretch at Her Majesty's kennels.
Its tough Lodzland, you'll be alright mate. Try to look at the positives and make some firm decisions, its not easy in Poland..... no way....is it. If 'what' some 4 million Poles can't make it what chance do foreigners have, unless they are:
1: Incredibly savvy
3: Have connections
I know lots of educated Poles over here in the UK doing well, who couldn't make it in Poland.
Your posts attract negativity because of the content, you've been unreasonable and heavily biased.
When i went to Poland in December 2005 i was a 29 year old cocky, business confident, arrogant little prick. I sometimes shudder at my mind set from back then. I was so sure that i would make millions in Poland that i had absolutely no regard for failure (in a monetary sense) at all. For the first three months it was casinos, beering it up at fancy restaurants and basically doing what ever the hell i wanted, when ever i wanted with some business in between. I remember having wads of thousands of PLN in cash at the place we were renting and playing poker with them as to whether we would go out that night or not with my wife.
In times of boom economies this is easy to do, i had a network of UK agencies waiting to sell Polish property back in the UK.......it was so easy, meet client at the airport show them some property, give them the sales spiel, get them to sign on the dotted line and hey presto another few thousand Zloty, we also used to arrange mortgages, property management and got a kick back on that too. Fast forward to after 2008 and the picture wasn't rosey. A UK FX financial company went into administration with a substantial amount of my money in their system and this is when alarm bells started to ring and i knew that our situation was unatainable and that we would have to leave. Shortly after that my wife became pregnant with our first child.
Theres no benefit system in Poland, no net for people who cannot support themselves, so we had to leave. I wouldn't allow my wife to work (no disrespect to you) as she didn't want to and i am a firm believer that a mother should be at home with the child - especially in its infancy.
Unable to sell the main property that we had bought in Poland we simply left, this was in April 2010. We had to rebuild our lives in the UK and manage some tough times. It wasn't a problem for me as i come from a working class background and had no problem with the yes sir no sir mentality, even if i despised it. But in reality all servitude is like that anyway, no matter where you maybe on the social ladder.
I'm intrigued by this thread in terms of its ability to connect on a level that we can all associate with.
Its amusing how many people on here are so successful in monetary terms by their own definitions. Take Harry for example, i guarantee he has some sh1tty job but makes out like he earns around 200,000 PL / year and johnny reb he's rich too, and Wulkan well he's a Rolls Royce engineer didn't you know....on £50k a year. I suspect the reality is somewhat different. Its only the internet guys, lets just be honest with each other shall we? Lets not let society dictate our lives and say the things which we think will make others envious.
We're all on the same planet, we all need to be happy, or none of us will be......eventually.
