      It depends what foreigners you mean and what their status is.

      A blanket query like that is meaningless.

      As a British person, I have no trouble: at even the slightest hint
      of xenophobia, I merely have to remind the other side that there are
      100 times more Poles in England than Englishmen in Poland, and that
      we were the first to play fair and welcome you (along with Ireland
      and Sweden) and they nod and friendly up. Although I might get the
      usual nonsense about Churchill.

      I expect that if I were a labourer from some third world country,
      and of another race, I might get a slightly less easy time of it.

      One thing I think we can safely say is that Polish people's image of
      themselves as being highly hospitable to foreigners is not borne out
      in reality in Warsaw, although hospitality increases in other areas -
      not so much Poznan and Krakow either, but certainly in rural
      Poland, Silesia and East Poland.

      I remember at the start when I got here mocking the way the English
      or Americans would invite people to go out but everyone would split
      the bill (actually I don't like that either) but when it comes to it
      the birthday invites to go out anyway are not as common as I thought
      they would be when listening to the Poles boast at how when they
      invite the person who invites pays. It simply means they cannot
      afford to invite, and so they don't, whereas they might be able to
      afford to socialise the Anglo-American way.

        Usenetpost...I found your response very interesting and I do agree
        with you 100% .

        I'm Polish living in USA for last 20+ years.
        I've problem communicating with my countrymen.
        I can't say anything good about USA..All what is acceptable with my
        friends from the past is to listen and politely agree.
        Well, I go to my motherland only b/c of family and my old mom.
        Interestingly enough I love Brits, I felt better in London then in
        Warsaw.

        But to be fair the lack of hospitality in Warsaw doesn't just apply
        to foreigners. It’s a city with a troubled past, and hopefully it’ll
        have a troubled future too, because it’s inhabited almost solely by
        obnoxious pompous twats who feel smug because the provincial
        shitehole they live in is so much bigger and more expensive than
        other provincial shiteholes in the area. Krakow's slightly better,
        so if they're fed up with the working class tourists that their
        kulturalne city attracts with its cheap beer, castle and whatever
        the other thing is that folk go to Krakow for, their tourist board
        could use the slogan "Come to Krakow - We're Marginally Less
        Arrogant, Rude and Pretentious than Warsaw".
        The hospitality in rural areas is pretty much the same as the
        hospitality of grinning in-bred hillbilly cannibals in horror films,
        for obvious reasons, and as far as I know they eat (sorry, treat)
        Polish townies in the same way. I once spent a miserable couple of
        hours in a village called Proszowice, surrounded by foul-smelling,
        welly-wearing zombies who all had exactly the same ears and stared
        at anyone who wasn’t covered in mud or didn’t have a chicken under
        their arm, but fortunately I had a shiny key-ring with me which
        scared them away.
        It’s better in the mountains, where folk are generally friendly,
        both in tourist-infested places and in the zadupie.
        The rest of Poland is fairly normal.

            The question was about Poles, not Poland, and I'm not denying that
            Krakow is well worth spending a day or two in, and I'm not blaming
            the locals for being miserable and pretentious. It's a tourist trap,
            so they're sick of tourists, and historically it's the cultural
            capital of Poland, so there's always the temptation to be arrogant
            and boring. It's a nice place to go for a stroll once or twice a
            year with friends. It says a lot that they keep writing to their
            local paper complaining that foreign devils pee in the street, but
            rarely moan about having to finance cops who don't stop foreign
            devils peeing in the street.
            Warsaw has all the disadvantages of a major European capital and all
            the disadvantages of your average provincial Polish town, but none
            of the advantages of either and all the complexes of both. Londoners
            and Parisians don't have to ask if you've been there, folk from
            Edinburgh or Copenhagen pretend to be pleasantly surprised if you
            know their home town, but in Warsaw they get offended if you haven't
            memorised how many times their grandparents were victims of This
            and/or That.
            The only good thing about living in the countryside is that you've
            got stuff that civilised folk haven't got - mountains, fjords,
            tigers, slightly bigger castles, a better choice of priests to be
            molested by, amazing cheese, whatever. In practice, the Polish
            countryside is mud and chickens. Flat boring landscapes, no
            bookshops, ugly pensioners who think anyone that's not related to
            them is a Jew.
            Since you ask, I'm from Greenock (a provincial shitehole on the edge
            of the known universe) and Glasgow (a normal city where your average
            Warsaw or Krakow punter can't last 2 weeks without writing a blog
            about how scary the real world is).

                Your insight and wit have completely changed my mind - the Polish
                countryside is clearly full of sophisticated types who are too busy
                driving mercedes and eating sushi to shag their cousins, and Warsaw
                is so great that in my many years of living in Poland I've probably
                heard someone somewhere saying "ale tak naprawdę Warszawa jest nawet
                OK" but I just somehow don't remember it...
                And don't dis the real world, you might have some contact with it
                one day.

                  Glasgow?! Youre calling glasgow "the real world"?! Buahahahahasmile
                  I didn`t know that sophistication and level of cultural development should be
                  measured in amount of mercedeses per countryside (obviously every farmer in UK
                  drives M-Benz and eats tempura for tea). Jeanie, please, go back to Glasgow
                  already, before your self - esteem will dissapear completely, and leave Warsaw
                  to civilised foreginers with no self imprtance issues because they grew up in
                  the counttry (as You lovely Yourself call Your hometown - "asshole of the world
                  or something like that?wink ).

                  Warsaw - Sydney - Singapore (but of course dreaming about the real world and
                  "Paris of 21st century" - Glasgow, im so bored by these shitholes

                What xenophobia?
                I've heard a few stereotypes about Glaswegians, but "intellectually
                biased" is an interesting one. I must make a note of it and mention
                it to my Glaswegian friends, I'm sure they'll laugh as hard as I did.

          First of all, Proszowice is not a village, but the head town for the poviat
          (administrative unit smaller than the voivodeship). People in Poland are very
          sensitive and easily guess who treats them like shit, you being a pretentious
          bloody foreigner were the most likely to be an easily recognized anti-Polish
          jingoist. Polish girls shave their armpits, so your idiocy is still more
          offensive. We have the same deodorants and of soap as you have, people start
          their day with a shower and they have no lice, which is frequently the case with
          the British. There is one thing that definitely keeps driving you mad, we have
          practically no ethnic or religious minorities, especially in rural areas or in
          smaller towns. The drunk zombies you mentioned are not numerous and they behave
          like lords in comparison to British working class tourists who puke and piss in
          Krakow Market Square. There are crappy districts in each town or city, but for
          you they are the ONLY ones. It,s hardly possible to find as crappy and
          depressing an area as the bus station in Manchester, where British Brits ask you
          for a couple of pence. Your zombies are more smelly and dirtier than ours, our
          zombies are at least WHITE.

            It's got a population of a few thousand, so it's not a town.

            > People in Poland are very

            All of them?

            anti-Polish

            I'm not anti-Polish, I'm not a jingoist, I'm not an idiot and I've
            never denied that Polish girls shave their armpits.

            There is one thing that definitely keeps driving you mad, we have

            Who does that drive mad, and why?

            The drunk zombies you mentioned are not numerous and they behave

            They are numerous. Does it not bother you that middle class tourists
            puke and piss in the Rynek too? Or are you a snob as well as a
            pretentious racist?

            There are crappy districts in each town or city, but for
            > you they are the ONLY ones.

            No they're not, otherwise I wouldn't live in Poland, would I? Why
            don't you think about what you're writing?

            It,s hardly possible to find as crappy and
            > depressing an area as the bus station in Manchester,

            I've never seen it, but I bet I know far crappier and more
            depressing areas in Britain.

            Your zombies are more smelly and dirtier than ours, our
            > zombies are at least WHITE.

            A zombie is a zombie.
