I find these and similar comments patronising, to say the least.
You go ahead and do that but I doubt you'd find them patronizing if you heard other Poles say these same things. You really think other Poles are that oblivious to such people?
Has it ever occurred to you that it is you who are the outsiders and maybe don't get to see the full picture, don't know the unspoken rules of conduct?
Likewise I could ask if it's ever occurred to you that is precisely what I am curious about?
I beg of you to be objective. If you carefully read my posts you'll see a very deliberate use of the word "seem" or "appear." The point of using that language was to make it clear that I am trying to provide the benefit of the doubt.
If it's unclear in my posts then let me assure you I'm still holding out hope that I will understand the reasons for what I perceive
to be a lack of courtesy and consideration that seems
to be come out in odd and unexpected ways here among some
segments of the population.
If you don't know what I'm talking about then I'll give you an example and you can educate all the foreigners on how they're interpreting things incorrectly...that's a far cry better than posting quotes out of context and getting your feathers ruffled for no real reason.
