First post

Hello.

This blog will be my therapy.

I'm a North American of Serbian roots currently living in Serbia due to a unique employment situation.

I hate it.  I think it's the worst place on earth.  Since I can't say these things out loud to hyper-sensitive Serbs (nor should I), nor can I post these things on my facebook, I've decided to make this blog.

This is my toxic waste dumping ground.

I single out Serbia, because I happen to live there.  I'm sure all the other former yugoslav countries are just as bad.  I didn't set this blog up to bash Serbs vis-a-vis the whole ethnic situation there.  I set it up because I think most Serbs live in some sort of fantasy-land about the country they live in, and defend these fantasies tooth-and-nail.

So, this is my place to vent.

If you're some kind of loser foreigner english teacher making $400/month in Serbia and have come here to defend your "belgrade is made of awesome" fantasy-construct, welcome.

If you're a Serb, living in Belgrade who's outraged by some foreigner telling it like it is about the squalid, god-forsaken, backwater you live in, welcome.

If you are a Serb who lives abroad and have all sorts of fantasy-notions about how things are in Belgrade or Serbia and might be offended by someone telling it like it is, welcome.

If you hate Serbs because of some kind of ethnic prejudice, this isn't the place for you

  3. Hilarious therapy, esp, about the bills. I lived in Skopje for more time than I should admit, and much of your blog rings true.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I spent some time recently in Skopje and, Skopjans don't nearly have the same "my shit smells like a bed of wild roses", set of core-beliefs.

    They do, however, have a kind of "my shit will one day be a flower" kind of charm

  5. So the place is shit, the people corrupt and incompetent and delusional to boot - it sounds like it could be just about anywhere then?

    ReplyDelete
  6. no. Serbia is not "just like everywhere else". In terms of corruption, delusionality and incompetence, Serbia is very special indeed.

  7. You are the definition of a drop kick. How can you enjoy your time in Serbia when you don't speak the counties language? Obviously it will be shit but if you took the time to learn the language then you would also be able to see what people and their life styles are really like. Sure it's not the best in the world but people work with what they have (which isn't much). They have a heart of gold considering what they've been through and to have some inconsiderate piece of shit like you posting unnessesary comments like this on your blog is pathetic.

    Funny thing is, I live in Australia and my roots are of Serbian origin and I also don't speak Serbian just like you but I do understand it. If I wanted to speak it I probably could but everytime I go to visit I don't feel as if I need to. People over there are so welcoming, they try so hard to speak English with me to make my time over there as hassle free as possible. That is not only my opinion but hundreds to thousands of others. We are understanding of them. We understand that they don't have much, we understand that they're not as developed as us and we understand their pain. Why try and judge and compare a nation like Serbia with one such as Australia, Canada or USA? You can't and it's just sad that you actually do that.

    At the end of the day, you should treat people the way you want to be treated. If you come into work pissed off and arrgant then of course you're not going to get a good respons from people but if you go happy and friendly then everything around you will turn out so much better. Just do not blame the country or even the people. It was your choice to work there. If you hate it so much than just leave and leave your sad low life comments to yourself.

    1. dude, FIRST: ALL foreigners who had been in Serbia long enough would certainly agree with Doot 1000% percent, your country is a dump hole. See, the problem isn't the country itself (thence the place is beautiful and full of wasted natural resources), but the people who are chronically lazy, unorganized and unabashedly prejudiced. SECOND: it is absolutely untrue that all Serbians are welcoming people. Most of us expats would agree that Serbian women are indeed helpful, collaborative and wonderful people, but in the other hand Serbian men are sick abusive bastards, and the whole country is said to be inhabited by animals because of their (men) behavior, and if you don't like to hear the truth as it is, welcome. THIRD: pal, you ARE NOT an English speaking person, based on the behemothic number of outrageous grammatical and spelling mistakes that you possess it is certain that you have never even been to an English speaking country, you're just a bittered little Serb who's feeling offended and affected by the irksome sounds of reality being told by a westerner, civilized human being.

  9. Also, to address a certain something:

    You go to Serbia for maybe a few weeks at a time maybe once every few years.

    I went to Serbia in 2008 for three weeks and had such a wonderful time that I decided to start a business there. (quite successful 3 years later, I might add).

    It took me maybe 5 months for the honeymoon to pass the first time.

    Point being is that I hate Serbia because I DO know it (much better than you, I'll add), not because I don't somehow understand it.

    Get back to me after you've spent a few months here and tried to accomplish something other than a few drinks on a splav.

    2. So, basically, what you're saying is that no foreign companies should be allowed to employ Serbs at wages higher than they would be able to get for a local company?

    1. I'm not allowed to have a contrary opinion just because my grandparents came from here? ok, buddy :) Glad that I don't operate with such absurd strictures.

      BTW, I don't see any traffic coming from German, only Serbia, so chances are you're a Serbian(ized) person with ethnic roots in German.

  12. I'm rereading this first post and I realize how much Serbia has declined economically since I first posted this.

    There are no more foreign English teachers here anymore since I stared this.

  13. hey dude
    im in the same situation as u and hate serbia too.. but live here as well..just found your blog.. will be a blast to read i bet :)

  14. Hi Doot,

    Sorry to hear about your troubles. Something is bugging me though. How come you don't move if you don't like it?

    Another thing- I am from Serbia, and I know a lots of things are bad (poor economy mostly), but I compensate that dissatisfaction with another activities: hanging out with my good friends, going out... As a person born and raised in BGD I am familiar with its pros and cons.

    Last thing, if you run home to whine on the Internet every time when you get short by change, coned by cab driver or similar stuff, man, there is something wrong with you. Grab a beer, get laid you will feel much better. If you are in BGD and you are not able to find a person that suits you (among almost 2M people) for a beer, there is something wrong with you.

    Vast majority of us natives are pissed off at system, but we manage to keep our spirit.

    Regards,
    Vuk

  15. It's totally understandable for someone born and raised outside his country of origin to despise his country and hate it. I have a similar experience. I was raised in New Zealand and my parents are Arabs. You have no idea what kind of shit-hole my country is in. It's absolutely disgusting, would describe it as a huge trash can. Nothing is decent out there for god sake. Not health care, not transportation, not individual freedoms, not even electricity or pure bathing water! People are very depressing, envious and sick-minded. When I visit them I hardly wait to rush to the airport and end the nightmare.
    Nevertheless, you're originally from Serbia. Essentially a European country, I think it is far far better than any Arab country, take my word for it. Serbia is a democratic country with relatively acceptable life style. I mean, come on, the only thing they lack is a good economy (low wages, unemployment). At least they've got clean streets, a fairly good transportation system (not the train network maybe), ambitious young people who love their country, politicians which are trying hard to please the people, glamorous athletes known and admired across the globe, beautiful nature and climate (as opposed to desert and drought), rich architecture and history.
    Yes people may be more narrow-minded in Serbia than in the west, BUT, logic says they have a promising future. Take the former eastern bloc countries for example, those countries have transformed 360 degrees. A country like Slovakia feels just as western as the Netherlands now.
    I'll sum up with a suggestion; leave Serbia then visit it back after 10 years and make a new blog about the new Serbia.

      It's not "a small point", however. It's a key ontological difference for the 21st century.

      I suggest: http://www.ted.com/talks/pico_iyer_where_is_home.html


      So, ya. leave and come back in 10 years. Maybe you have a point.

      However, Yugoslavia was way ahead of all those countries you mentioned and now it's way behind where it was itself 20 years ago. Yes war, bombing and all that. However, that ended 14 years ago and Serbia has only gone backwards and is still going backwards.

      I hope Serbia gets it together, but I have serious doubts. Too much cultural baggage to even recognize their position, let alone do much positive about it in any reasonable amount of time

      Delete
    8. So how did you end up in Serbia?

      Delete
    9. Why do you think that Serbia cannot go forward? Because people are lazy and stupide? No man, it is because there is no place left in the "global economy" for the newcomers. The concurrence is tough and those who are already in advance have no intention to leave any profit to those small nations. Yes Yugoslavia was much better cause there was a sort of complimentarity, equilibrum.

      All that you love in your fucking country, that I hope you rejoin as soon as possible, is thanks to its RICHESS. The same goes for all the occidental world. You search for what you have in a country with 50 000 dollar GDP pc, in a country which has almost 10 times less! It is the poverty that you hate, man. Not any cultural trait.

  16. Being a teacher in Serbia how would you asses it's educational system? Is it efficient?
    What is your comment on the Serbian language too, as a language teacher, how do you view it? Do you think it's a good thing that the language has 2 alphabets or do you think one alphabet should be abolished (at least in the educational system). Some would believer that people should be taught sciences in the Latin alphabet while Cyrillic should just be taught in Serbian Language lessons. Will you please give us your feedback on this?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I'm not a teacher in Serbia. Wherever do you get that idea?

      I enjoy learning the Serbian language.

      No need to "abolish" Cyrillic. Kids posting their facebook status updates 99% in latinic is Cyrillic's death knell. Cyrillic is already on life support. As soon as you need the government to order that official documents be in Cyrillic, it's already past the point of no return.

      90% of my junk-mail is in latinic. Why? because there are more latinic fonts installed in a computer by default.

      So, there you have it. Facebook and the pizza flyer are the canaries in the mine.

  27. What kind of a person you must be to write and devote a whole blog in such a negative manner?! Serbia is a unique country in Europe, with a unique culture and collective mentality. As a Serbian, I've been able to travel and visit many countries of central and western part of Europe. Economically and infrastructurally Serbia can't compete with those countries, which are by far superior, but on the other hand, all the westeners can't compete with any of the people from Balkans socially. The amount of emotion and it's deepness a person can feel in a group of Serbians is extraordinary, because we have this cultural sense of collectivity which is embracing for an individual. Only an emotionally and psychologically unstable person, someone who's a stranger to himself, can't empathize with an honest and naive soul of my people. I guess you have those frustrations because you haven't been accepted in any community you've been in, and while I've read your posts, I understand why it is like that. "Check yourself before you wreck yourself."

There's a part of me that says that you've never even been to Serbia, but there's also another more logical explanation of your behavior, and it would be that you're a Kosovo Albanian. I know that there's thousands of you jobless lowlifes that are constantly spamming the shit out of the net, just to alienate the Serbs from the rest of the world, and to convince the people that are interested in Serbia not to go there with some idiotic wannabe arguments. You have your own country now, aren't you supposed to be happy about that? Your behavior equals a teenage child, so I'm absolutely sure that nobody takes your fuss seriously.

      Anyone who'd like to come to Serbia, and expect to see something like Las Vegas would be an idiot anyways. Everyone who craves for "par exelance" tourist destinations would rather go to Dubai, or other similar places, why bother with Serbia, but what places like these lack is history, its monuments, and unique culture.
      City like Belgrade has still to offer a lot, even to those ones with deep pockets. There are hotels, restaurants, etc. on the highest European standards.

    1. well, you're truly a wise man. Ain't saying that all serbians are bad, of course Serbia has a lot of good people, but all of those serbian 'good hearted people' are wise enough to understand that their country is a true fu** hole and therefore you're either in the process of leaving the country or left it already. Serbia is one of only two countries in the world with half of its population living inside of its boundaries and the other half living abroad (the only other country like that it's 'Cuba' which is also another fu** hole and wherefore more than its half have moved out permanently to the farthest corners of the earth).

      During my stay in Serbia I found clearly 2 kinds of people:

      1) the ones that are proud of their crap (they believe that Serbia is the center of the universe and that they're smarter and prettier than anybody else in the universe, usually each and every single of them are potentially aggressive and mentally and socially unstable), and;

      2) the ones that are ashamed of their accidental association with their country of birth and are therefore ashamed of its shameful history as well as of its lack of culture, education and human manners whatsoever.

      Now, the primates from the first group are likely to remain within the country's boundaries and due to their bitter ignorance and prejudices they have no interest in going to live like humans in the western hemisphere (thanks heavens!!!!!!!!), and the ones from the second group (the good charactered souls) have either left the country forever or are in the process of leaving it permanently, so once again, I salute you man whereas you're within the second group and wherefore you're surely in the right path of wisdom.

    2. Sad but true, John. Although I refuse to be ashamed of something I didn't myself choose (country of birth) and have no control over (behavior and actions of other Serbs). I prefer to be seen as an individual responsible for my own life rather than a part of the "herd".

  32. My dear friends, and owner of this blog,
    all of you must have reasons for your feelings... and because of that all of you are right!! But i read to much the word HATE... hate is not good... and there is more feelings to feel you know?
    Live your life in a different way... dont hate too much, mix with other feelings... do different things... go to other places... meet other people... see other realities... life is too short...
    Be in peace... leave HATE for others, take higher feelings for yourselfs... if you really like of yourselfs of course...
    This is my 2 cents, respectfully...

  34. Hey Dooty buddy,
    I stumbled upon your blog yesterday and went through all the postings. You made my day - your wisecrack commentaries put into place some overinflated egoes, surely overabundant in these parts. As a Serbian national I find it highly instructional in undermining false self-perceptions. It's a shame though you're forced to resort to these lonesome anonimous rants while keeping a happy-go-lucky attitude over day. It's a ketman mindset innate to America since Thomas Jefferson wrote political poetry on human rights in time-outs of black slaves' whipping sessions. So you”ve been dumping your toxic waste inwardly ever since. That's lots of shit accumulated man. No wonder a country of obese couch potatoes, filthy street gangs and copycat schoolchildren killers slowly declines in global terms.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've just discovered your blog by accident, motivated by an article analyzing nationality-based auto-suggest Google searches. Since I'm Serbian, I figured why not look into my own yard.

    Just started reading your blog and friend you are spot on!

    This country is beyond saving, dying a slow but inevitable death. Ravish by ignorance, stupidity, illiteracy, misogyny, selfishness, corruption.

    The people who amount the something have long emigrated (and by that I don't think Serbs, but citizens of Serbia - I'm sick of this ethnic segregation in this day and age) and very few left are planning to go!

    Just a couple of days ago I've read that 38000 people leaves the country yearly and the you can imagine the demography: young people in their 20s and 30s some in their 40s mosty educated.

    It's game over here, but most refuse to see it.

    I'm very saddened by all this, make no mistake - but I ain't the kind guy the bullshit myself. If you're willing to turn a blind eye, you don't care, not the either way round.

    Ok, my fellow Serbs, strike me down for the "traitor" that I am.

    You want proof that I'm Serbian, no problem: Само Слога Србина Спасава, Шешељ, Аркан, Коштуница, Тома, Нож & Жица, Косово је Срце Србије, Пизде Материје.

    Хвала на пажњи.

  36. Its sad that your therapy rotates around feeling of hate. U probb. age faster and have problems with physiological functions bound with psychological feelings. And if nothing else it would be better for u to start standing behind your opinions and words, like this u will not make any effort in this therapy and as an anon. person that is. There is always other option, u donˇt need to be a servant of the money u r making here, escape! even if it means that youˇll earn less and have bigger problem finding the object of your hate. My sincere advise for u is to move on to another chapter of your life, you are obviously not happy here. Or not happy as in general... Anyways these r only words left in an ether... Hope youˇll get better and overcome the things that burden u.

    1. I really appreciate the health and wellness tips, along with the concern for my well-being and physical appearance.

      I'm curious about something that I've been curious about since I got here, though, and since you seem to have some insight about how states of mind affect people's appearances, maybe you can tell me why Serbs, after they hit about 35, fall off some kind of cliff and all of a sudden look 10 years older than they are.

      Any insight? Hate in their hearts or is it just from smoking?

  37. Doot, i am Serbian from Belgrade, and i'm probably sharing 80% of bad impression's with you.
    But you must understand that this suffered and mutated people do not have time for understanding your anger and pain....
    Move on, you live once,

    Bunch of people here will gave their asses for your passport...

  38. Oh, Doot, I had a laugh reading your blog, especially about the fork :)) This was what my poor dad said to my English husband when he came to meet the family for the first time. There seams to be a mutual unofficial script for every Serb that meets a foreigner. I bored people to tears when I moved to England, with my 'poor me, poor Serbs' story. There was a reason to it, as under media influence people in Serbia think that the entire world just talks about them (in a bad way, of course). When in fact, nobody cares or knows where Serbia is. Well, I learned my lesson soon after. I still have pangs of nostalgia and think of going back, but I'll postpone it for a while after reading your blog. You just reminded me why I left.

  39. You have the fork story wrong, but so do a lot of Serbs. It's not an inconsequential story, however, but it takes a little curiosity and research to find out what it is. You just like to moan. You seem to lack the sensibility to understand your own people, so leave already! Nobody has tied you to a chair in Serbia, have they? Whiner.
